Suffering from tooth loss can mean several things for your oral health and personal life. Individuals dealing with missing teeth can experience deteriorating oral health and decreased self-confidence. For these reasons, it’s important to treat tooth loss as soon as possible to minimize the amount of damage that can occur. An important step in treating your tooth loss with dental implants is finding a skilled dental implant provider. If you’re in Scranton, PA or surrounding areas, you won’t find another provider as qualified as Dr. Albert A. Hazzouri Jr. of Hazzouri Cosmetic, Implant, & Family Dentistry.
Dr. Hazzouri has been exposed to caring, skilled dentists his entire life with his father Albert A Hazzouri Sr. who opened up the family dental practice in 1949. Dr. Hazzouri continued the family legacy with his extensive education in dentistry. He first attended Le Moyne College in Syracuse, New York where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology.

He has completed several courses at prestigious dental schools including Post-Doctoral Studies at Temple University, Graduate Studies at the Misch Implant Institute, Fellowship in dental implantology at the Misch Implant Institute, and Graduate Studies at Pankey Institute of Advanced Dentistry.
