Dr. Yigal Prilutsky (a.k.a., Dr. P) is a graduate of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts, where he earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree in 2001. He then continued his training at the prestigious Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California as a resident. His extensive training, clinical expertise, and compassionate and caring nature have made him a top choice with patients.
Dr. Prilutsky knows that education does not end when one graduates. Technology and methods continually improve. Therefore, his never-ending quest for knowledge and improvement leads Dr. P to seek continuing education beyond the minimum number of hours mandated by the California Dental Board.
Additionally, patients routinely comment about Dr. P's sense of humor, which helps them relax and feel more comfortable.
When not practicing dentistry, Dr. Prilutsky enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife and 2 daughters, cooking, reading, exercising, martial arts, and playing his classical guitar and piano. And yes, Dr. P finds time to watch TV too, but it has to be the History Channel!
