Dean Salo, DDS
LOS ANGELES & BEVERLY HILLS COSMETIC & IMPLANT DENTIST
Since launching his initial private practice in Beverly Hills in 1992, Dr. Dean Salo has been a welcoming face in the Los Angeles dental landscape. Running successful multi-disciplinary practices focused on patient education, highly individualized care, full mouth rehabilitation as well as the functional and aesthetic dental health of patients, Dr. Salo operates under the mantra of “100% Dentistry”.
His passion for dentistry started early. Starting in a dental lab during college, Dr. Salo began learning the artistry of cosmetic restorations. After graduating the youngest in his class from UCLA in 1989 with a Bachelors of Science degree in Biochemistry, Dr. Dean earned his DDS from University of Pacific’s Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry at only 24. He then went on to open his first practice in Beverly Hills, where he brought a fresh take to modern dentistry in an otherwise cluttered dental landscape. As his patient base grew, so did his practice. Dr. Dean currently leads a team of the best dental practitioners in the field at his multi-disciplinary Miracle Mile and South Bay practices. He is committed to delivering top-quality service to some of LA’s most famous faces and those looking for the highest level of personalized care.
For Dr. Dean, cosmetic dentistry is not only a passion but also an art form. He has trained under some of the most prominent industry leaders such as Dr. Michael Pikos and Dr. John Kois. Dr. Dean completed multifaceted training at pristine Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies as well as Dawson Academy. He makes it a priority to provide top of the line services to each patient, all while utilizing his expertise to design restorations that feel and look natural. He has the ability to incorporate artistry into his work due to the century old techniques of golden proportions along with the most up-to-date technologies available. The most advanced technologies are incorporated into his practice, including digital radiography, CT Scan, and variety of lasers in order to maximize patient comfort.
Due to the widespread fear and anxiety associated with dentistry, Dr. Dean made it a personal mission to create an environment that catered to “dental-phobias.” In order to do so, he furthered his education in oral sedation, obtained an IV sedation license, and is currently a member of American Dental Society of Anesthesiology. One of the unique features of his practices is that patients can obtain all of their dental services in one office, from his team of top-notch specialists, while sleeping through the entire process.
Dr. Dean is a graduate of the Misch Implant Institute; one of the world’s most advanced training centers in dental implantology. Dr. Dean’s training at Misch enhanced his superior surgical skills and knowledge of periodontics necessary for complex implant treatments. His training and expertise in dental implants have allowed him to rehabilitate numerous cases of partial and/or total edentulism, the absence of teeth. In turn, this has given patients the smiles they want and deserve. Dr. Dean has incorporated numerous cutting-edge technologies into his surgical practice, such as Plasma Rich Protein, which greatly accelerates the healing rate and recovery in his patients. His surgical skills have earned him a Fellowship at the esteemed International Congress of Oral Implantologist as well as American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
His drive for perfection, passion for his work, and love for his patients is what keeps Dr. Dean in tune with all current developments in the industry. He is affiliated with some of the most respected dental organizations including the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, The American College of Porsthodontists, and the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain, a group of multi disciplinary professionals, committed to the relief of craniofacial pain and dysfunction of TMJ. Dr. Dean’s TMJ treatments are focused on therapies and modalities, which offer patients relief and solutions without the use of surgeries and drugs.
Additionally, Dr. Dean has worked both domestically and abroad, assisting dentists in building patient-centered practices, as well as training them in advanced dental techniques and proper use of cutting-edge technologies.
Dr. Dean and his wife actively support several philanthropic organizations including, the Concern Foundation, which funds cancer research worldwide, the National MS Society, and Our House. Through both his practices, and with help of his dedicated staff, giving back to the community is further encouraged through donations and support of organizations such as Art of the Brain, Spirituality For Kids, Jewish Home for The Aging, and the Avon Cancer Walk, just to name a few.
Dr. Dean has lived in Los Angeles since his early childhood. He presently resides in Beverly Hills with his wife and their three children.
