“Patients have a truly unique experience in our office.”


PermaDent has been a pillar of the South Bay dental community for more than three decades, specializing in implant dentistry and periodontics. Our surgeons offer expert care for a wide range of services—from routine tooth extractions, dental implants and gum grafts to the most complex reconstructions involving bone and tissue regeneration and full-mouth rehabilitations.

Our years of specialized training and clinical experience, combined with the most advanced technology available today, allow us to accurately diagnose dental conditions and recommend a course of treatment that is designed specifically for our patients’ long-term success. 


The primary way we empower patients to improve their health is through education. We know that the best way for us to serve our patients is by continuously learning and, in turn, sharing what we know in a way that makes our patients better informed about their own oral health. We strongly believe that a well-educated patient is better prepared and more capable of actively participating in establishing and maintaining their oral health and long-term care. 


Patients have a truly unique experience in our office. The first thing they tell us is how beautiful and clean our space is, but they typically leave talking more about how good they feel to be here. They appreciate our efficiency, professionalism, explanations and concern for their care. They also recognize and comment on our cutting-edge technology.


We live by the motto “What is the best thing for the patient?” This may sound simplistic, but it is powerful and keeps us on track with our mission as a team. We are not driven by marketing trends, metrics or insurance. We are fueled by science and committed to embodying the highest standards in dentistry to achieve optimal oral health for our patients.


We take pride in our reputation for successfully managing complex cases. We strive to accurately diagnose and create treatment plans in a way that set patients up for long-term success. Delivering exceptional esthetic results is where we shine—especially for patients who have not been successful before. One patient recently said he was in the hands of the “dream team.”


As a complement to dental implant surgery, we have carved out a niche in the areas of bone and soft tissue regeneration (grafting), along with dental implant surgery. Our ability to reconstruct bone and soft tissue allows many patients to accomplish their dream of one day becoming whole again. This applies to a range of patients—from those missing a single tooth to those requiring full-mouth rehabilitation.


Our combined areas of specialization and decades of clinical experience make us unique. Our clinical expertise enables us to provide patients with a tremendous experience. We are all passionate about dentistry and learning, so when we come together on a case, it’s pretty special. It is a privilege to be able to work together providing optimal care for our patients.
