Meet the Doctors

Akash Lapsi, DDS

"I strive to achieve excellence in everything I do, and therefore, have state-of-the-art technology and equipment to provide pain-free dentistry to my patients; their care and comfort is very important to me. I also love educating patients on their oral care and needs. I make the time to sit with each patient, learning about their desires, explaining to them their needs, and answering all their questions."
– Dr. Lapsi

For Dr. Akash Lapsi, his patient’s oral health is his first priority. He is known for his gentle touch and doing everything he can to ensure the complete comfort of his patients. His goal is to ensure that every patient can smile with confidence after leaving his office. Dr. Lapsi enjoys working with patients to provide them with personalized dental care that meets their needs.

Education and Continuing Education

Dr. Lapsi has practiced dentistry in Orange County for over ten years. After completing his formal dental education, he became a Fellow of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID) and a Diplomate of American Board of Oral Implantology (ABOI). Board certification is a rigorous process; currently, there are only about 800 Diplomates in the country. Certification by the ABOI/ID attests to the fact that Dr. Lapsi has demonstrated knowledge, ability, and proficiency in implant dentistry through a rigorous examination process. Involvement in the AAID and ABOI also requires Dr. Lapsi to attend yearly conferences to learn the new techniques in implant dentistry.

Dr. Lapsi is happy to be a life-long learner; he constantly advances his education by taking continuing dental courses and gaining experience in the field. This dedication to the dental field allows him to offer his patients a superior dental experience. His education and training have given him a host of skills; he is especially knowledgeable when it comes to dental implants and Invisalign®.

Ali John Jazayeri, DDS (Dr. J)

General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry

Dr. J has an astounding background in dentistry. He graduated from UCLA School of Dentistry in 2005, held a general practice residency at St. Barnabas Hospital from 2005 to 2006, and he completed NYU Implant Seminar Training from 2008 to 2009. Dr. J has been working in the dental industry for over 10 years now.

His favorite part about his job is replacing teeth in order to restore patients' beautiful smiles, as well as the ability to chew properly.

I spent over a decade practicing in both New York and California. While the practice of dentistry is the same regardless of where you practice, the demands and wants to the patient could substantially differ based on your demographics. By combining what I've learned living and practicing on both coasts, I can generally appease even the most selective patients. I accomplish this by offering you all of your options in advance to help you make an informed decision on what makes the most sense based on specific needs.
