Can’t say enough good things about this place. The medical and supporting staff are very professional, conscientious, and helpful. I came to this practice for a cutting edge gum procedure and now I’ll be coming here for all my dental needs.  Again, great service and very friendly.

I am very happy with the service, they are very attentive to detail. They call ahead of time to confirm and remind you about appointments and are always open to your questions. I have so far had deep cleaning, wisdom tooth removal and routinely cleaning. I endorse this center.

Amazing surgeons , the staff and office space is just as warm, professional. The doctors and hygienists truly care about a patients well being and I will continue to come back and send others to them for their periodontal needs !

Center for Advanced Peridontal & Implant. Dr Alina Krivitsky, DDS and her staff are the best in LA! I did my own research about periodontal treatment and flew in from Hawaii for an appointment and ended up having Dr. Krivitsky and her staff take care of me from day one! Her expertise and recommendations for me as her patient throughout this journey was amazing! She’s very, very detail, and upfront about my expectations. I have a great admiration for Dr. Krivitsky work ethics and professionalism. As her patient, you will get to know her and I knew I was in good hands from the first appointment.

I would give this office 100 stars if I could!! I had a gum graft on my bottom and upper teeth I was so nervous for the procedure but the staff made me feel so comfortable and at ease! The procedure went perfectly and now I’m 6 weeks post op and I love it!! The recovery was so easy and I had no pain at all!! I followed all the steps given and everything went perfect! This is now my go to dentist office and I love about 2 hours away but it is so worth the drive! I would recommend this office to everyone!! The best doctors and best staff! Thank you guys so much for everything! – Baylee Gossman

Dr. Aalam is a wizard. I had severe gum recessions and he patched everything up with one procedure. He is warm, intelligent, and makes himself available to you at all parts of the process. If you need periodontal work done, or even just need an opinion, go see Dr. Aalam. I couldn’t recommend him more.

Tom D. from Glassell Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Aalam and Dr. Krivitsky could not have been more attentive, professional and capable. I received a gum rejuvenation and the entire procedure went perfectly. I am extremely impressed with this practice. Thank you, doctors!

A million thanks to Dr Aalam, Dr Krivitsky, and their entire team. Finding the right doctor to perform an implant procedure, in the front of my mouth, and at a fairly young age, seemed so daunting at first. I felt so vulnerable and dubious of everyone I consulted…until I entered their office. These are dentists who are not only excellent and talented clinicians, but also outright nerds about what they do. They really care about the patient and know how to get the best possible results, both aesthetically and functionally. If ever I need more treatment in the future, I would look to no one else. You guys are lifesavers. I really cannot thank you enough.

I had 4 tooth implants and the doctor did such a good job ! I never felt any pain, and the whole process was exactly what he told me at the beginning! Everything went so smooth and easy  Definitely I recommend him he’s absolutely the best

Jennifer W. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Alaam and his staff are friendly and professional. The front office was helpful in assisting to verify that my insurance would cover the gum grafting procedure prior to me scheduling the surgery. They are very effecient and I never had to wait more than 5 mintues when I arrived for appointments. They were very thorough with information before and after the procedure.  Although recovery after the procedure was a little more uncomfortable than I expected, the results were great.  Dr. Alaam also made himself available via cell phone following surgery in case of any problems during times when his office is closed.  They made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process.  Highly recommended!

I had told myself my entire life that I would never get my wisdom teeth removed because of the horrible childhood experiences I had with dentists, and that surgery would literally be my worst nightmare. A coworker referred me here because of the amazing experience she had and let me tell you…My fear of the dentist was completely erased and made up for by Dr Krivitsky. My surgery was so quick and easy, the office was the cleanest and most comfortable I could have asked for, and every single person that works there is so kind. I literally could not recommend this place more!!!

Best cleaning in the Galaxy!!! Maryam cleaned my teeth very thoroughly, I was always scared of the ultrasonic scaler but when she used it I didn’t feel a thing. I love that she explains every thing. I felt every nook and cranny of my teeth cleaned after. Office is so beautiful and cleaned and staff is very friendly u will feel right at home.

Mani H. from West Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Does ever occur to you that periodontal implant surgery could be somewhat bearable? How about if you don’t even remember and all of a sudden see the incredible result! Believe it or not, that is what exactly happened to me.
Dr. Alaam and his team provide unparalleled care and service from pre-surgery to post-surgery. He also has an unbelievable bedside manner, caring, and of course highly knowledgeable in his field. I would recommend Dr. Alaam and Dr. Krivitsky and their practice wholeheartedly.
Thank You again.

I’ll start this out by saying that I have been flying from New York to come see Dr. Aalam, Dr Krivitsky, and the staff at the Center for Advanced Periodontal & Implant Therapy for about the past year. I was in need of a dental implant and was referred by the excellent staff at Trident Dentistry. There is no better place to have any kind of work done, and no nicer staff to lead you along the way. The work is finally done and the results have by far exceeded my expectations. I can’t thank them enough for new smile and I give them my highest recommendation.

Michael T. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


The Center for Advanced Periodontal is simply, the Best!!!, from the moment you walk in, to a very, very, nice office, its like a spa. You are greeted by Linda and Sindy, they are both Great!!, very nice, professional, great client service, and effecient. I had 2 implants done, and one tooth removed. Dr Krivitsky is simply the Best!!. she was very nice, went over everything in regard to all my procedures, very professional, explained everything, and she even called me after all my visits to see how I was, Yes she personally called me!!.I went to a few other places for consultation before I picked Dr Krivitsky, and no one was even close to her, and her team. Thank you!!

If you ever need a trustworthy, confident and knowledgeable team, this is your place! I love everyone there. Very highly recommend!

Damien P. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Had an amazing experience at Dr. Aalam’s & Dr. Krivitsky’s office, they made my tooth extraction process easy and comfortable. I couldn’t have had a better experience at a dentist office, thanks to the periodontist, staff and front of office for all their help. Will recommend everyone needing any work to come here, they are the best!

I have never been a fan of going to the dentist’s office… Ever since I was a child; I have experienced pain, suffering and torture at the hands of a dentist. I would rather be in combat, somewhere in the Middle East, than to be in a dental office. Since, visiting Dr Aalam’s dental practice; I have experienced a warm welcoming from the moment I enter the office. I was a bit anxious, nervous and curious. I’m grateful to Dr Aalam and his staff; They are of the utmost professional, and attentive service-oriented person’s in the dental/orthodontics industry. I’m happy to announce my joy of not fearing dental procedures and services. I’m slightly skeptical at times, yet I am reassured each visit, that my needs are always met and surpassed by the everyone at the CENTER FOR ADVANCED PERIODONTAL & IMPLANT THERAPY : DR AALAM & DR KRIVITSKY. Thank you for everything.

I had some tooth sensitivity and was referred here by another dentist. I came for a consultation and ended up getting a gum graft that day. The procedure was quick and it took care of the sensitivity. I now also come for my cleanings.

I had 4 tooth implants and the doctor did such a good job ! I never felt any pain, and the whole process was exactly what he told me at the beginning! Everything went so smooth and easy Definitely I recommend him he’s absolutely

Dr. Krivitsky is fantastic! I was referred to her for a gum graft over an implant of my front tooth. In fact, I consulted a few dentists regarding my case and 3 different dentists independently recommended Dr. Krivitsky for the gum graft portion. I had a great experience with her and her office. She is very personable and explains her approach and reasoning. And my the results look great!

World class surgeons who lecture all around the world. They really care about their patients and they have the highest standards. Love them.

Amazing experience. I got my dental implant over a year ago. Dr. Aalam and his entire team did an amazing job on the implant, and has been very consistent in following up to make sure everything is still okay even to this date. Highly recommend!

Wendy Zenchyshyn (Source: Google)


I had the pleasure of having Dr. Alana Krivitsky help me several times where my temporary bridge fell out. I was visiting from Seattle and was waiting for my permanent solution from my dentist in Seattle. She was very accommodating in getting me in the same day. Her chair side manner is amazing…personable, caring and gentle. She genuinely cares about her patients. The front desk staff are also great! Very kind and informative. Plus they are always in time to get me in for my appointments! Can’t say enough about a first class operation they run!

Essie M. from Artesia, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had the pleasure of being referred to the Center for Advanced Periodontal and Implant Therapy specifically, Dr. Aalam for receding gums.  From the start I received nothing but professional service beginning with the first phone call!  All the staff at the front office were inviting, friendly and professional. The office, beautiful and clean and welcoming.  Dr. Aalam is the best, his work is AMAZING!  the reward is that not only does Dr. Aalam do amazing work, he is professional and is a nice person which you rarely see in this day and age.  It really shows that he enjoys what he does and that he genuinely cares for his patients and his staff.  Dr. Aalam performed the Advanced Platelet-rich Fibrin (A-PRF) procedure with little to no pain, and the healing process went without a hitch, I could not be happier with the results  I would highly recommend The Center for Advanced Periodontal and Implant Therapy and Dr. Aalam.

I met Dr. Krivitsky today for the first time for my gum pain and other problems I have related to my gums. I could feel how genuine and caring she was since she did not rush to finish our consultation even if after she did everything she could do and took about an hour to make sure we talk about all of my concerns and possible pathways we can for my problems. Normally, I never easily trust or feel comfortable with dentists or periodontists but for the first time, I felt totally safe. So, now I have total peace of mind even if I ever have a serious gum problems, I know who to go and I will get a great help. For me, these two months were so miserable since I was in a horrible pain and experience other problems related to my gums and I could not find any periodontist who was willing to see me. Because of this, I had so much anxiety in addition to my pain and stress due to the changes we are having right now.So, I cannot thank her enough to see me today. Additionally, the environment of the clinic is very relaxing and friendly. When I was there, there were three assistants working at the front desk and I did not have to wait for previous patient to finish her administration.

Everything about my experience at the CENTER was perfect from start to finish. The kindness, professionalism, service and level of care at this office is unparalleled, and there are no other doctors I would trust than Dr. Aalam and Dr. Krivitsky to perform such specialized treatments. They truly care about their patients and work to create personalized solutions for each patient based on their specific needs, because they understand no two patients are alike. I appreciate their passion and commitment to their practice and patients, and felt so comfortable throughout my treatment process. You know you’re in good hands when your periodontists fly around the world to educate other doctors on how to correctly perform the treatments they offer at their office, and they are professors at USC. World-class care from world-class doctors!

A thoroughly professional and friendly place to get the absolute best periodontal work you can find in Los Angeles.  Dr. Kravitsky is an amazingly skilled and talented physician, who also happens to be warm and wonderful.  Every member of the staff is helpful, bright, and caring.  My procedure was smooth and fantastically successful.  I am so pleased with the care and quality medical services I received here, and cannot recommend the Center for Advanced P&I Therapy enough.

I’m very pleased with the treatment I received by Dr. Krivitsky in treatment my gum recession problem. The entire treatment was seamless and very professional. I highly recommend this office for anyone who needs to treat this condition. The staff was highly professional and always punctual.

Super thankful to Dr. Aalam and Dr. Krivitsky for taking my husband for an urgent appointment and saving his tooth! They had to redo a bone graft for him after it was botched in NY. We have been traveling to LA just to have them work on our teeth. The office is beautiful and the staff are wonderful as well!

Goli S. from Cagnes-sur-Mer, France (Source: Yelp)


I had an implant placed and gum recession surgery with Dr. Aalam and Dr. Krivitsky and I cannot say enough about my positive experience.  Excellent staff with great communication. Beautiful office and great bedside manner. I highly recommend them if you need any periodontal work done.

Anita B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to Dr. Aalam and Dr. Krivitsky for gum recession.  They were thorough in explaining the gum surgery every step of the way, and in the process, their caring and focus on the patient made me feel completely taken care of.  I’m so grateful to have been referred to them by my dentist.

Audrey Enayat (Source: Facebook)


I have been going to dentists all my life. This office gives you a feeling of a spa. The smell, the sounds, the staff and altogether the energy of the office is totally different than typical depressing dental offices I have been to. On top of it all, Dr. Alam is extremely knowledgeable, professional and up to date in his field and has furnished his office with state of the art equipment. What else can one ask for? I have been going to him for the past couple of years now and recommend him 100%.

From the time I entered the front door for my consultation, to my follow up appointment after gum surgery, Dr. Krivitsy and all of her staff gave me wonderful service! Now I have the smile I always wanted! Perfect result!

Megan W. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Second review I’ve ever written in my life.  Horrible dental anxiety due to bad childhood experience.  Learned I had to re-do major work done 12 months ago, enter the darling and brilliant Dr. Krivitsky.  So caring and understanding of my anxiety – called me before my first appointment to reassure me – and follow up calls post surgery.  Then there’s her professionalism and talent. Post surgery, unbeknown to me, she followed my husband and I to lab verifying that temporary was going to be just right.  Went in next day to have the temp put in and she explained that it arrived that am but she didn’t think it was exactly right so sent it back to be modified.  It’s perfect.  Her colleague,  Dr.  Aalam, put in the temporary and was equally fantastic. Beautiful office magnificently run by one “Linda” who could not possibly have an enemy on the planet.  I may have to take her to coffee.  Big win and am so thankful I found  Center for Advanced Periodontal & Implant Therapy.
