Meet Dr. Jean-Jacques Elbaz

Dr. Jean-Jacques Elbaz, D.D.S., M.S., of Beverly Hills, is one of the most highly regarded periodontists in Southern California. Born in Casablanca, Morocco, Dr. Elbaz comes from a family of medical practitioners. After receiving his dental degree in Paris, Dr. Elbaz moved to Los Angeles, where he was accepted into the program at UCLA to to train under world-renowned periodontists Drs. Fermin Carranza, Barrie Kenney and Henry Takei. There he earned a postgraduate certificate in periodontics and a Master of Science in Oral Biology.

Dr. Elbaz spent time teaching at UCLA while continuing clinical research in bone grafting before opening up his own private practice in Beverly Hills in 1990. For over the past twenty years, Dr. Elbaz has built a reputation for his technical skills in tissue management and his caring relationship with his patients. 

With his background in teaching and research, Dr. Elbaz ensures that his methods are always on the cutting edge.  He has lectured nationally and internationally, and received Diplomate status in Periodontology in 1997 from the American Board of Periodontology.  Subsequently, Dr. Elbaz received Diplomate status in Oral Implantology from the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry.  He also serves as an expert in Periodontics for the Dental Board of California.

While Dr. Elbaz seeks to maintain one of the most up-to-date offices in terms of technology, he knows that the most important part of any visit is the personal care he provides to every patient. Minimizing trauma and improving aesthetics are always a top priority, and it is one of the reasons why many dentists in West Los Angeles choose Dr. Elbaz as their personal periodontist.

Periodontics and dental implants are intricate procedures which will naturally cause patients some apprehension and concerns about their condition. With his emphasis on the latest techniques and a positive patient experience, Dr. Elbaz is the person to contact as you seek to work on a healthy, more beautiful smile.
