During his residency, he taught pre-doctoral dental students in clinic and through lectures. In addition, he presented to general dentists at the Suffolk County Dental Society Meeting. Towards 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 provides diagnosis and treatment of the various forms of periodontal diseases, dental extractions, soft and hard tissue grafting, placement of dental implants, and sinus grafting.  He believes in providing every patient with comprehensive and individualized care.
