Dr. Joseph Sarkissian studied microbiology at the University of Alabama. He then attended the dental school of the University of Goettingen in former West Germany, where he graduated in 1989. Over the next eight years he practiced dentistry on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. During that time he trained in homeopathy, completely abandoned the use of amalgam (mercury) fillings, and expanded his knowledge in the biological aspects of therapy. In 1998, he moved to Los Angeles and received his license to practice in California. He currently owns a state-of-the-art biological dental practice in Glendale, California. Dr. Sarkissian has extensive training in the use of lasers going back to 1999. He owns the waterlase iplus and uses it every day in conjunction with every aspect of biological dentistry, particularly in association with ceramic implants.
