Giri Palani, DDS, has trained with some of the top dentists and oral surgeons in Los Angeles. After graduating from Marquette University School of Dentistry, Dr. Palani underwent a rigorous hospital-dentistry program at the prestigious Cedars-Sinai Hospital. As chief resident at UCLA, Dr. Palani continued his learning about aesthetic dentistry and the placement and restoration of implants. He stays on the cutting edge of developments in implant dentistry as part of his fellowship status with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, which requires numerous hours of annual education and the ability to say “bicuspid” quickly 10 times.
Complementing his extensive training in the technology and philosophy of Western medicine, Dr. Palani's Indian heritage has inspired his passion for holistic dentistry. He remains mindful of the ways in which oral health is intricately connected to the overall wellness of the rest of the body.
