Dr. Javdan grew up in southern California with a passion for research and science. After graduating summa cum laude from the University of California Los Angeles, he received a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a minor in Near Eastern Languages and Cultures.

Through his efforts with Remote Area Medical (RAM) and UCSF Community Dental Clinic, Dr. Javdan provided dental services for patients with limited access to care.

During his residency, he taught predoctoral dental students in clinics and through lectures. In addition, he presented to general dentists at the Suffolk County Dental Society Meeting. Toward the end of his residency, Dr. Javdan was chosen to participate in the Straumann National Resident Symposium.
Family, sunny weather, and great opportunities led Dr. Javdan to drive 2,865 miles to Sacramento after graduation. He thrives on providing quality dental care at the highest level of excellence in a comfortable setting. Dr. Javdan diagnoses and treats the various forms of periodontal diseases, dental extractions, soft and hard tissue grafting, placement of dental implants, and sinus grafting.
