Hi, I’m Moshe Benarroch, DMD, QME, Board Certified Periodontist, and I specialize in providing expert periodontal treatment for industrial injuries.
As the first college graduate in my family, I majored in psychology in undergrad and then attended Rutgers Dental School, graduating in the top 5 in my class. I was inspired to become a periodontist, in particular by Dr. Barry Wagenberg, my residency program mentor, and received my certification in Periodontics and Dental Implants from the West Los Angeles VA Hospital.
As a periodontist running my own practice for over 18 years, I help people achieve optimal dental health. Since 2003, I have been a clinical attending in periodontics and dental implants in the post-graduate periodontal residency program at the West Los Angeles VA hospital. This allows me to continue providing care for our Veterans and also gives me the opportunity to train the next generation of periodontists, something I truly enjoy.
The residents are eager to learn, constantly challenging me to explain what we do and why we do it, and I’m always surprised at how much I learn from teaching. Continuing education classes ensure that I am always advancing the level of care that I provide to my patients. And even though most of our patients have surgery as part of their treatment plan, I work hard to make sure that every patient that comes through our door has a positive dental experience.
My Goal: Every Patient, a Positive Dental Experience
Experience a Transformation “I love restoring confidence in my patients by assisting them with their oral Health. There really is no better feeling than helping a patient smile again. Healthy teeth and gums are vital to a healthy body. Many injured workers have no teeth, and we restore them so that they can socialize and build meaningful relationships. While getting workers’ comp insurance to authorize full mouth dental reconstruction is very difficult, we work tirelessly to achieve this goal because we know what a difference it makes in the lives of our patients.” Moshe Benarroch, DMD
