Founder of UCLA & USC JOURNALS of Dental Research
Dr. Molayem received his Bachelor of Arts in History from UCLA and his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree at the UCLA School of Dentistry. Thereafter, Dr. Molayem completed a 3-year specialty program in Periodontics at the Herman Ostrow USC School of Dentistry. He is the Founder of both the UCLA and USC Journals of Dental Research which have been going on for 13 and 11 years, respectively.
He has lectured and has published in the field of dental implants and periodontics and is the co-founder of Synergy Specialists, the largest agency for travelling dental specialists in the United States. Dr. Molayem has been practicing periodontics in a private practice setting in Southern California for the past 10 years. More recently, he has been conducting research and has published the most comprehensive connection to date between the mouth and Covid-19 in the Journal of the California Dental Association.
Dr. Molayem believes in Oral health and how it is intimately interconnected to the overall health of an individual.
Dr. Molayem has a minimally invasive approach to his treatments. He also prefers to save teeth as long as possible versus doing extractions. When a tooth does more harm to the body than good, he may extract a tooth. He takes into account the systemic effects of bacteria that originate in the gums and teeth. He has embraced the newest techniques and advances in his field in order to give the best possible results.
Dr. Molayem's passion is to help patients prevent oral complications as opposed to just managing the symptoms of the disease. He focuses on the root causes of all oral health complications and their relation to chronic illnesses. He educates his patients about nutrition and lifestyle habits to help them prevent major oral health complications.
