Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?

Dr. Silvera was actually brought up around a lot of dentists. His uncle is a dentist, and his mother worked for dentists while he was a child, so he was able to see how a dental office really worked from a very young age, play with the lab models, and even witness firsthand how people’s lives were changed for the better in the treatment chair.

By the time Dr. Silvera graduated from high school, he knew that he was most interested in sciences and math (especially geometry) and was also pretty good with his hands, having built countless model cars/airplanes. With this information, he decided to pursue dentistry as a career – and today, he couldn’t be happier!

Where Did You
Study Dentistry?

After studying at Yeshiva University in NYC, Dr. Silvera pursued his dental doctorate at the UCLA School of Dentistry. Since then, he has kept up with a great deal of continuing education to further expand his skills. Some of the highlights include:

  • Training in neuromuscular occlusion, dental implant placement, endodontics, ClearCorrect, and PowerProx Six Month Braces at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute.
  • Oral conscious sedation education with DOCs.
  • Occlusion and facial esthetics training through Spear Education
  • Completing the Esthetic Continuum at UCLA

He is currently a member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and Spear Education.

Outside of the Dental Office,
What Do You Like to Do?

Dr. Silvera lives in West Los Angeles and is the very proud father of five boys, none of whom are interested in becoming dentists just yet. As a family, they enjoy basketball, hiking, and playing wickedly cutthroat games of Settlers of Catan. As for personal hobbies, he enjoys reading biographies/history books, meditating, learning about Arabic Jewish culture, and cooking.
