Dr. V. Polyakov, DDS Oral Surgeon
I received my undergraduate degree in Biology from UCLA, then continued on and graduated from the UCLA School of Dentistry. Finally, I completed my Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery residency at UCLA Medical Center. Therefore, that makes me a UCLA Bruin x 3!
Since 1993, I have been practicing Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. I have consistently noticed one very important fact about people who are facing a procedure. Patients that are well informed about their condition and actively involved in planning treatment make better choices, have an easier recovery, and achieve better postoperative results.
And it happens most when everyone is working as a team. The referring dentist who knows when to act, the oral surgeon who understands the latest advances, and their staffs who compile relevant information to help the patient make the best (and happiest) choices.
That is why I established SYNERGY Dental Implant and Oral Surgery Center. We aim to provide the perfect combination of people, care and technology to give you the best oral health possible.
