Creator of the Immediate Load Ultratooth Implant
Sargon Lazarof, DDS, is a renowned dentist at Sargon Dental in Encino and West Hollywood, California. He is dedicated to providing comprehensive dental services to patients living in the Los Angeles area.
Dr. Lazarof earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery — graduating with honors — in 1986 from the University of Southern California (USC) School of Dentistry. His postgraduate studies involve the Study of Disease of the Temporomandibular Joint at the TMJ Research Foundation.
Dr. Lazarof is the inventor/developer of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) first approved immediate load implant, which has been described in the industry as the “first major innovation in dental implantology since the early work of P.I. Branemark.”
In 1991, Dr. Lazarof wrote a paper that first coined the term “immediate load” and described it as full function at the time of placement. A few years later, in 1998, his book “The Immediate Load Implant System, Esthetic Dentistry for the 21st Century,” was published by Quintessence Publishing Co, Ltd.
Dr. Lazarof has continuously strived to improve the dental industry with numerous inventions, including NumBee, which introduces needle-less anesthesia. In addition to serving as the CEO of the Sargon Enterprises, Inc. and previously as a Clinical Professor at the USC School of Dentistry, he maintains a full-time practice in implantology and is the founder of the Sargon Dental & Implant Institute located in Encino, California, where doctors are trained in both basic and advanced implantology.
Previous patients of Dr. Lazarof are proud to say he has helped change their lives. He is currently welcoming new patients to Sargon Dental.
