Dr_Ilya_ZakDr. Ilya Zak

A renowned doc throughout South California since 1994—specifically his practices in Simi Valley, Valencia, Agoura Hills, Long Beach, and San Diego, Dr. Ilya Zak responds to his patients’ needs with dedication, respect, empathy towards each individual emotional and financial situation. A USC Dental School graduate of 1990, Ilya was one of eight competitive (12.5% chance! a very humble brag) students to complete the ADAPT program, an accelerated 6-year dental program. After graduating, Ilya completed a TMJ/Pain Management residency at White Memorial Hospital and became a qualified medical examiner for TMJ in California. Remaining loyal to his alma mater, Ilya is a part-time clinical instructor at the USC Dental School.

Dr. Schrager Temecula Dental GroupDr. Nicu Schrager

Expertise: Removable Prosthetics (dentures, partials)

We asked Dr. Schrager, “why dentistry?” We were more than content with the reply we received, “dentistry is not simply a profession, but a passion for me to be able to offer the best dental treatment possible and fulfill the needs of the patient.” This is a philosophy we as a dental office are proud to stand by. The Dr. completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery at USC where he perfected his artistic eye for detail and precision to provide specialty care for patients requiring dentures and partials (implant supported or not).

Licensed in Ontario, Canada and California, the Doctors specialization includes clinical dentistry with the use of prosthodontics and oral implantology. The co-funder of the Orange County Implant Study Club for General Practitioners, Dr. Löberg turns to continuous education as fuel towards changing lives with cutting edge technology including the Computer Aided Design and Milling System from E4D to ensure perfect fitting restoration are long-lasting, esthetic, and time-saving.

Dr. Yenny Kennedy

Dr. Kennedy’s objective in the dental world is to prevent patients from getting serious tooth and gum problems before they become a major problem. These unnecessary nuisances can easily be prevented with the power of regular teeth cleanings, gum treatments, Laser Assisted Periodontal Therapy, and restorative dentistry. Dr. Kennedy received her Dental Degree from Airlangga University School of Dentistry in Indonesia, where she also met her U.S. Marine husband, and later settled down in Orange County. She later graduated from UCLA School of Dentistry, opened her own practice in 1984 in Riverside County, and moved to Australia to further her education at the Sydney University School of Dentistry. Finally moving back to the states a few years later, our office is thrilled to have Dr. Kennedy on board.
