Meet Our Dentist


Dr. Ali John Jazayeri, known affectionately as Dr. J to his patients, was born and raised in southern California. He graduated cum laude with a B.S. in Biological Sciences from the University of California of Irvine. He spent most of his free time in college tutoring and teaching other students. "Being a dentist is more than just fixing teeth. I like to educate my patients about things they are unaware of. Like how your teeth can impact your overall health, how your bite relationship affects your balance and other dentistry secrets that go beyond just looking good and eating well!"

Dr. Jazayeri attended the highly prestigious UCLA School of Dentistry. He graduated in 2005. Following graduation, he completed a one-year General Practice Residency training at St. Barnabas Hospital located in the Bronx, NY. Dr. Jazayeri came to the realization that his primary passion is in cosmetic dentistry and implant dentistry. He took many Continuing Education courses in pursuit of his passion, including completion of a one-year training at Implants Seminar taught by world-renowned Dr. Arun Garg.

Dr. Jazayeri pushes himself to excel at performing simple and complex dentistry. Dr. Jazayeri's dedication to his passion for modern dentistry allows him to deliver superior care and an everlasting smile. His philosophy is to restore teeth worth saving and replace failing and infected teeth with dental implants. Outside of the office, Dr. J loves to hang out with his wife, a computer engineer, and his two young daughters.

Dental Implants by Dr. J

The only way to get good at dental implants is through practice. Dr. Jazayeri has been placing dental implants for over 15 years now. On average, he places about 300 dental implants each year. Here are some examples of dental implant treatments that Dr. Jazayeri offers to his patients:

  • Single tooth implant
  • Multiple dental implants
  • Implant bridge
  • All-on-four dental implant treatment
  • Snap-on-dentures (dentures supported by dental implants)
  • Full mouth dental implant treatment

Dr. Jazayeri particularly excels at performing immediate implant placement. The immediate dental implant technique is where you have your tooth removed and the implant placed during a single visit. Immediate implant placement spares you, the patient, from needing additional surgeries. Plus, immediate implant placement takes advantage of the bleeding that occurs following tooth removal for better implant-jawbone integration (Note: Not all cases qualify for immediate implant placement and Dr. J will let you know if you are a candidate during your consultation).

We use Nobel Active dental implants for almost all of our cases. Nobel implants are Swedish-designed and made in the U.S.A. Their implants use the highest quality titanium material. They also have a very aggressive tread design which maximizes the bone-implant surface for ideal stabilization to maximize long-term success. We also offer Nobel Pearl for those interested in full Zirconia metal-free dental implants. Be sure to ask Dr. J if you are interested in Zirconia implants to see if you are a candidate.

Porcelain Veneers by Dr. J

Looking for a way to improve your smile? Dr. Jazayeri will offer you a complete smile makeover with porcelain veneers. You can replace that one snag/yellow/cracked tooth with a single porcelain veneer to restore its looks and function. Or, you can replace your entire upper and/or lower teeth with 6 to 20 porcelain veneers to completely transform your smile. There are many different reasons why patients choose to get their smiles enhanced with porcelain veneers. You may have crooked, yellow teeth that are an eye sore. You may have teeth that have been damaged over the decades subsequent to grinding, aging, and other bad habits. Porcelain veneers can fix all of these issues and change your smile.

Cosmetic dentistry requires lots of patients, focus, and experience. Dr. Jazayeri has performed hundreds of smile makeovers using porcelain veneers. Let's preview what a typical smile restoration looks like. First, we take an impression of your teeth to do a mockup. The mockup will display what your final smile is going to look like. It allows you to visualize your final smile before we even start working on your teeth. The porcelain veneer process itself typically takes 2 to 4 weeks. You will be wearing temporaries during this time. Once the final teeth are ready, we will try them in your mouth. Love your new smile? You will receive your porcelain veneers and are ready to concur the world with your new smile! Like them, but not in love? We will send the porcelain veneers back to the lab to alter their appearance until you're in love with them.

Tooth Extraction & Bone Graft

Dr. Jazayeri performs most tooth extraction surgeries. This means that you won’t be referred to different dentists to remove a bad tooth. In addition to tooth extractions, he also performs his own bone grafting treatment. We always recommend performing a bone graft following your tooth extractions. Bone grafts help preserve more of your jawbone. They also help with placing dental implants in the near future. Bone grafts aid the healing process. Without bone grafts, you’re at a much higher risk of developing a painful symptom known as a dry socket.

For our bone grafts, we use synthetic, animal-sourced (pig, cow, etc.), and cadaver bone grafts. Dr. Jazayeri will review the different types of bone grafts to help you choose which is best for your situation. Please let us know if you have an objection to the use of animal/human-sourced graft material and we will try to avoid it if possible.


Scared of getting your teeth fixed? Dr. J offers a few different options to help those who are super nervous:

Nitrous Oxide gas: Nitrous Oxide is available on demand for a nominal fee to help you relax through your visit. Inhale the gas to relax and get your work done in no time.

Oral conscious sedation: You will be happy to know that Dr. J is certified in offering Oral Conscious Sedation (lic #3763). This level of sedation is reserved for complex cases that take a few hours to complete. Examples include full mouth implant treatments, all-on-4 surgeries, wisdom extractions, etc.

General anesthesia can also be performed with our board-certified anesthesiologists for cases that don't qualify for conscious sedation technique. Inquire about your options for sedation if interested.

All phases of General Dentistry

We also offer all sorts of general dental care treatments. These include dental cleanings, fillings, crowns, and more. Here’s what you need to know about our approach to your general dental care:

  • We don’t push deep cleanings. Most of our patients get away with a thorough regular cleaning. We encourage most of our senior patients to come for dental cleanings every 3 to 4 months. Frequent dental cleanings ensure that you maintain healthy gums while avoiding those painful deep cleanings!
  • We only offer composite fillings. We do not perform any Amalgam fillings due to their potential risk subsequent to heavy metal content.
  • Almost all of our crowns are made from metal-free Zirconia. We prefer e-max layered zirconia for cosmetic cases (most front teeth) and Bruxzir solid ceramic for teeth under heavy bite forces (back teeth, grinders).

Occasionally we perform root canals, dentures, and bridges. We usually prefer dental implants over root canals. Root canals are performed on a limited basis when a dental implant is contraindicated. Also, we prefer to give you dental implants instead of dentures and bridges. Bridges and dentures are performed on a limited basis when dental implants are not a viable option. We think that your mouth deserves the best treatment, even if it costs a bit more time and money. Our team will work with you to offer you a treatment that you’re 100% satisfied with. We won’t make any compromises and offer you and your mouth the best treatment that modern technology permits.
