Dr. Larry Picard
Dr. Picard earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Chapman College in 1982, and graduated from the University of Southern California with a Degree in Dentistry (DDS) in 1986. He started as a West Los Angeles dentist in 1987. Involved in both the Santa Monica Implant Study Group and Seattle Institute Study Group, he meets with other dentists monthly to share expert knowledge, stay up to date on leading edge techniques in Implant Dentistry, and adopt the latest dental procedures and technology. Dr. Picard also knows when to apply long-standing dental techniques in lieu of pop trends, when proven results are better and more founded in reality than what the latest hype is. He educates patients on their options in an honest, pressure-free way, so that they can make well-informed decisions for their cosmetic and oral health needs. Dr. Picard is an active member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and West Los Angeles Dental Society. His expertise in Cosmetic Dentistry includes completing the UCLA Esthetic Continuum, smile design, veneers, bleaching and bonding. Married with one son, Dr. Picard is very active in philanthropy. During April, National Autism Awareness Month, Dr. Picard donates 10% of all proceeds from his practice to Autism Speaks, and he and his wife raise significant funds for the Walk Now for Autism Speaks event every year, in addition to dedicating a lot of time to supporting the cause. He and his family are also active skiers, cyclists and hikers, and enjoy spending time with friends.
