Dr. Elmasri is proud to be providing dental anesthesia to the Southern California area. He was born and raised in this area and it will always be his home. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of California, Irvine.
His love for the health profession attracted him to dentistry where he attended and graduated from Loma Linda University with honors in Implantology and Anesthesia. It was during dental school when he realized his passion for anesthesia and continued training at Loma Linda to complete a post-doctorate residency in Dental Anesthesia. During his residency, he received extensive training in cardiology, internal medicine, medical anesthesia and dental anesthesia.
His valuable training at Loma Linda University Medical Center, Loma Linda University Children's Hospital, Riverside County Regional Medical Center and Loma Linda Veteran Affairs Hospital provided him with experience and proficiency in treating a wide range of patients with various medical backgrounds.
In addition, he trained at Loma Linda University's Special Care Dentistry Center which provided him with the valuable experience of dental anesthesia treating patients as young as 12 months old and patients with a variety of special needs including: ADHD, Autism, Down Syndrome, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Developmental Delay, and more.
"I had my wisdom tooth removed and the doctor was amazing. After being nervous about being out under anesthesia he explained all other options to me and helped me make the best decision for myself. This office least has the nicest staff and treat you like a person not just a set of teeth coming through the door."
I don't normally make reviews, but I feel compelled after having such a great experience. I suffer from dental phobia/anxiety. I mean it is so severe that I have to take valume before my visits. well, I use to... My root canal went so smoothly that I was able to sit through my next appointment on my own. I don't think words can explain how good the Dr. and his staff are at making you comfortable and at ease. This is definitely the place for someone who has had bad experiences in the past.
I had been with another dental office, but saw Dr. Barsoum's office for a specialty (Endo). My first interaction was with Dr. Barsoum; let me tell you.. this man is very kind, caring, and so professional! I really like how he goes over and beyond for the patient experience. Dr. Edalat is also a class act. He is so gentle with his hands. He performed a root canal on me.. I promise you, I felt nothing, and I even went to work that same night for 12 hours with no pain meds or issues. I also liked how Dr. Barsoum PERSONALLY calls you, the patient, the evening of your visit to see how every thing went, to see if you have any concerns or are in pain. That says a lot! Most doctors don't care what happens to you after you leave their office, but Dr. Barsoum does, and I highly respect him for that. I recommend Dr. Barsoum and Dr. Edalat for all of your dental needs. These doctors are amazing!
"The staff are wonderful and friendly. Dr. Barsoum is the most caring Dentist I have ever met. I went in for two fillings and a root canal. I was expecting it to be very painful, but to my surprise it was not. Dr. Barsoum took really good care of me when I was there, and he even makes "checkup" call to make sure I'm doing fine. Overall, my experience there was just WONDERFUL!"
I had to have a root canal re-done that another dentist did incorrectly. Dr. Edalat made sure I was comfortable at all times. He was done before I knew it and didn't feel any pain at all. The entire staff are wonderful.
A dental anaesthesiologist attends dental school like any other dentist. However, in order to become fully certified, all dental anaesthesiologists must then undergo an additional two to three year residency program in anesthesiology. During this time, the focus is entirely on general dental anesthesiology and deep sedation in order to allow a dental anaesthesiologist to assist with a wide range of dental procedures.
The general anaesthesiology is vital in preventing pain during tooth extractions, dental implants and various other dental procedures. Through sedation dentistry, our dental anaesthesiologist will use an intravenous sedative to put you fully under prior to your procedure and will then monitor you throughout the procedure to ensure you don't wake up or suffer from any potential complications.
No matter what type of dental procedure you need—whether it's for functional or cosmetic reasons—it is essential that you not let pain stand in your way of reaching your oral health goals. When you choose Barsoum Dental, you can rest confident knowing that our dental anaesthesiologist will be on hand to provide the pain relief you need exactly when and where you need it.
