Get to know Dentist Dr. Arash Hakhamian, who serves patients in Los Angeles, California.
Dr. Hakhamian, known as “Dr. Arash”, is a widely recognized and respected doctor of dental surgery in private practice in Los Angeles, California. He focuses his time and energy on teaching dentists advanced clinical procedures and providing life-changing dentistry to his patients locally and internationally.
Alongside his clinical role, he serves as a consultant and teacher to current dentists on how to improve the efficiency and standards of their practice to better serve their patients. While no office is perfect and no operation is without flaws, Dr. Arash hopes to share his experiences with other dentists both from what he has learned from others, as well as from what he has learned from his own mistakes.
He has teamed up with leading surgeons such as Dr. Jin Kim (UCLA periodontist), Professor Dong-Seok Sohn (leading international surgeon and oral maxillofacial lecturer), and Dr. Tony Daher (professor of prosthodontics) to train and educate other dentists on how to place and restore implants for the benefit of their patients. He also teaches for several implant companies both locally and internationally, promoting the advancement of implant systems to his students.
Coming from a family of medical doctors and dentists, Dr. Arash sees the mouth and oral health as one integral piece of a connected system, affecting and working with other parts of the body. The longstanding tradition of community service and philanthropy exemplified by previous generations in his family motivated him to continue his heritage, helping to better the lives of others through the practice of medicine within the field of dental surgery.
His passion for dentistry began as a child where he spent much of his childhood hanging out and helping out in his father’s dental office. His passion for public service was influenced by his mother’s affiliations with a multitude of charities and service programs to help others in need.
Throughout his academic career, Dr. Arash was a three-sport varsity athlete in high school. He graduated with top departmental honors, Latin honors, and college honors with nearly a 4.0 GPA from UCLA. He was immediately accepted to one of the world’s best dental schools, the University of Southern California School of Dentistry, where he graduated with honors and received one of the most prestigious awards as the top student in caring for patients with advanced medical and physical disabilities.
He had the honor and privilege of studying under the mentorship of Dr. Stanley Malamed (world leader in emergency medicine and anesthesia), Dr. Pascal Magne (world leader in biomimetics and aesthetic dentistry), Dr. Hessam Nowzari and Dr. Homa Zadeh (world-leading surgeons and periodontists), and Dr. Glenn Clark (world-renowned figure in orofacial pain and oral medicine) – amongst others. Upon his graduation from dental school, he was accepted to the renowned UCLA AEGD Department.
After establishing his own rapidly growing practice in Beverly Hills, Dr. Arash spent the next several years traveling around the world and training under some of the world’s best surgeons. In doing so, he became uniquely capable of evaluating, diagnosing, and restoring a patient’s dental needs from beginning to end with consideration to the interdisciplinary approach of holistic dentistry. As such, he has been sought out by high profile patients such as the Saudi Arabian
Royal family, international political figures, top businessmen, and celebrities alike. Most notably, he has a growing list of dentists who seek him as their own dentist.
Among his professional affiliations, Dr. Arash is a proud member of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, the Los Angeles Dental Society, the Alpha Omega International Dental Fraternity, the World Academy of Ultrasonic Piezoelectric Bone Surgery, and the International Academy for Dental-Facial Esthetics – amongst others.
In addition, he is one of the founding board members of the Global Dental Implant Academy, an international organization based on the principle of teaching other dentists advanced surgical procedures such as implant placement, soft tissue grafting, bone grafting, and guided-bone regeneration.
Being a volunteer with various local and international organizations around the world, Dr. Arash takes great pleasure in providing his services for free. He sponsors life-saving dental missions to Guatemala, Mexico, Korea, Vietnam, Belize, Colombia, Brazil, Peru, Jordan, Israel, and many other countries where he donates his time to help underserved communities with free dental services. Locally, he donates his time with the “Special Olympics,” “Ayuda,” “Doctors without Borders,” “Give Kids a Smile Foundation,” and many other worthy organizations to help bring free dental care to those who cannot afford it. He also sponsors numerous “Free Emergency Care Days” one day every quarter of the year in his downtown office where he treats anyone in pain for free.
Dentistry, also known as Dental and Oral Medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity. As a dentist, Dr. Arash has the skills needed to complete an array of commonly performed dental procedures that are simple or complex in nature. His interests include bone regeneration and reconstruction with the use of the patient’s own growth factors extracted from their own blood and then used to aid in the regeneration of autogenous bone to gain both vertical and horizontal bone height.
Currently, Dr. Arash is working on his first book titled “The 10 Dental Commandments”. He is also in collaboration with several other dentists on promoting a more holistic and bio-compatible alternative to traditional dentistry with the use of lasers, non-metal restorations, and stem cell therapy.
He takes pride in his ability to speak multiple languages coupled with a degree in Anthropology from UCLA, thereby allowing him to communicate and understand patients from various ethnicities and cultures. He also takes great pride in providing life-changing “anti-aging” cosmetic dentistry to promote a younger and more vibrant appearance to patients from around the world seeking his expertise in 21st-century cosmetic dentistry.
