About Guy Giacopuzzi

Staying at the Forefront of Dentistry

Dr. Guy Giacopuzzi has distinguished himself as a General Dentist and shown his commitment to continuing education by earning an Academy of General Dentistry Fellowship. This prestigious award offers opportunities to expand a professional's clinical knowledge and enhance the skills and treatment programs that they build for their patients.

American Academy of Implant Dentistry
His commitment to his education shows his dedication to his career, but also to general dentistry itself. To further that commitment, he is also a member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and a member of the Academy of Osseointegration. AAID Credentialed Dentists are The Dental Implant Experts.

Academy of Osseointegration

With 6,000 members in 70 countries around the world, the Academy of Osseointegration is recognized as the premier international association for professionals interested in implant dentistry. AO serves as a nexus where specialists and generalists can come together to evaluate emerging research, technology, and techniques; share best information; and coordinate optimal patient care using timely, evidence-based science and methods.

Western Society of Periodontology
WSP is an organization of general dentists, periodontists and hygienists dedicated to further the art and science of periodontics and implant dentistry. Dr. Giacopuzzi is a WSP member and has served as a board member and editor for WSP in past years.

Dr. Guy Giacopuzzi has been practicing in Lake Arrowhead since 1981. He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Loma Linda University in 1980 and has a B.S degree in biology from Cal Poly State University. He has been a member of the American, California and TriCounty Dental Associations for all of his 40 years of practice.

The Dentist's Dentist
Known as the "dentist's dentist", Dr. Giacopuzzi is appreciated by his patients for his skill and knowledge. The field of dental implantology is a wide one, and to maintain skills, it is necessary to have continual input of the latest technology and developments. While many implants placed in the United States are performed by specialists–oral surgeons and periodontists–these practitioners are not specialists in implants.

In addition to belonging the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, Tri-County Dental Society, the Newport Harbor Dental Academy and the Academy of General Dentistry, he belongs to the American Academy of Periodontology, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, and the Academy of Osseointegration. He is the inventor of Fancy Floss, an innovative flossing device and a frequent contributor to several professional periodicals.

Why European-Style Dentistry?
In Europe, over 90% of the implants placed and restored, are performed by general dentists. When a single doctor oversees the implant therapy from beginning to end, there is much synergism in the treatment, not to mention significant financial savings. The patient enjoys the ease of going to a single office, and not having to deal with multiple practitioners.

Dr. Giacopuzzi follows this European-Style philosophy in every aspect of his practice. For patient comfort, Dr. Giacopuzzi is also trained in intravenous sedation, and has held a licence to administer these medications for almost twenty years and is a state sanctioned examiner for other licencee’s. There are only about 100 general practitioners in the state with these licences.
