Dr. Aalam Overview

Additionally, Dr. Aalam is the first periodontist in the US to have trained in and performed advanced platelet-rich fibrin. Utilizing the patient’s own blood, this therapy can enhance hard and soft tissue grafting procedures. Not only does the treatment reduce healing times, but it also decreases pain and swelling and improves overall patient experience.

Dr. Aalam is committed to providing each of his patients with the highest care and best dental treatment therapy. His goal is to help patients achieve a healthier smile and overall oral health through pain free and gentle treatment.

Dr. Aalam became a Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, France, in 2000 and enjoys fluency in both English and French. He then went on to complete his certificate in Advanced Periodontology and Implantology at the prestigious University of Southern California in 2003.

After completing his advanced periodontal certificate, Dr. Aalam stayed on at the USC School of Dentistry as a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Advanced Periodontics, where he has spent the last decade training and giving back to future periodontists. Dr. Aalam has recently been appointed to serve on the Board of Governors for the USC Alumni Association as the Representative for the USC School of Dentistry.

Today, Dr. Aalam is one of only two Board Certified Periodontists in Brentwood, the other being Dr. Alina Krivitsky. He is also the only Diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology in the Brentwood area. Dr. Aalam is a member of the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Periodontology. He is also a committee member of the Iranian American Dental Association.
