Meet Dr. Saj Jivraj
Your Implant Specialist in Oxnard, CA
Born in Kenya and raised in London, Dr. Saj Jivraj grew up playing chess, tennis and football. He was an avid reader, fascinated with science and medicine, with hopes of one day becoming a neurosurgeon.
Although he was accepted to medical school, Dr. Jivraj then decided to apply to dental school. Believing that he could be impactful in that field, he earned a Bachelor of Dental Surgery at the University of Manchester Dental School in England.
Dr. Jivraj then came to the U.S. to attend the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry at University of Southern California (USC), renowned for its advanced program in Prosthodontics. While earning a Certificate in Prosthodontics, he mastered the art and skill of full-mouth reconstruction procedures. He then completed a master’s degree in Science Education with a specialty in Medical Education, also at USC.
Dr. Jivraj is former chairperson of Fixed Prosthodontics and Operative Dentistry at the USC School of Dentistry. He has published numerous articles on cosmetic and implant dentistry in peer-reviewed journals and is considered an expert in this field. He cowrote the textbook, Treatment Planning in Implant Dentistry, published by the British Dental Association. Dr. Jivraj’s book, Graftless Solutions for the Edentulous Patient, was published in 2018 and has been used by more than 15,000 dentists, clinicians, and specialists worldwide. He currently holds a position on the editorial board of the Journal of Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry and is the ad hoc reviewer for the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry.
In addition to his private practice in Ventura County, Dr. Jivraj holds faculty positions as Associate Clinical Professor at the USC School of Dentistry, and Clinical Teacher at the Eastman Dental Institute in London. He also serves on the Board of Directors for the British Academy of Restorative Dentistry. Within the framework of these positions, Dr. Jivraj mentors future dentists and prosthodontists while on the cutting edge of the art and science of cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry.
Dr. Jivraj’s patients come to centrally located Anacapa Dental Art Institute from Santa Barbara to Los Angeles and as far south as San Diego. They are fortunate to have a caring specialist of his caliber for all their dental needs.
When he is not working at the practice or teaching at USC, Dr. Jivraj enjoys traveling with his wife, Dee, and their teenagers, Sara and Zain.
