Meet The Doctor

Dr. Mark Laska

Dr. Mark Laska

Doctor of Dental Surgery

Dr. Mark Laska attended UCLA. for his undergraduate studies and graduated from USC School of Dentistry in 1970, and has been in private practice in Los Angeles since that time.

He has based his practice on preventative dentistry and cosmetic care, while using the latest technology, such as digital x-rays, veneers, porcelain inlays and crowns and soft tissue laser. Recently, he expanded his practice to include specialty dentists - orthodontics, periodontics, endodontics and oral surgery. This has allowed the practice to stay abreast of the newest techniques, such as implants, and Invisalign® (a clear alternative to braces) and to offer most dental procedures in one location. This method of care provides a more inclusive environment for the patient’s dental needs.

Dr. Laska has been the team dentist for the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team since 1987. He is a member of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, the Los Angeles Dental Society, the Academy of General Dentistry, the Academy of Sports Dentistry and The Academy of Clinical Sleep Disorder Discipline.
