From the time he was 10-years-old, Dr. Jay Grossman knew he wanted to be a dentist. He liked the idea of helping other people and saw, through his dentist who was a family friend, that dentistry was the perfect career to make that happen. His excellence in undergraduate school and his passionate enthusiasm for dentistry led to his acceptance at the age of 19 to New York University College of Dentistry.
At 24, Dr. Grossman moved with his wife and new baby to Santa Monica, CA. The Navy seemed like a dynamic venue that would afford him a plethora of experiences, so he enlisted. After completing a tour of duty as a Lieutenant in the Dental Corp, Dr. Grossman knew he was ready for a private practice. In 1991, he hung his shingle in Brentwood, California and has been there ever since, known to his loyal patients as “Dr. J.”
Now, an expert in cosmetic and comprehensive dentistry, ranging from the prevention and treatment of cavities to the creation of porcelain crowns, Dr. Grossman incorporates the latest dental diagnostic equipment in his practice. He is committed to combining high technology with a superior level of customer service in his practice, and is especially sensitive of his patients’ needs, including those with dental phobias. One of only a few dentists in town with a dental laser, that can remove a cavity painlessly – without the need for a dental shot!
As a dentist active on the national stage, Dr. Grossman maintains three licenses: the Northeast, Nevada, and California. His professional affiliations include the Peer Review Committee for the American Dental Association in West Los Angeles, the Peer Review committee for Delta Dental, and membership with the American Dental Association, California Dental Association and the Western Los Angeles Dental Society. He also is a foremost dental expert and has been involved in mediating over 300 dental malpractice cases.
Founder and executive director of the non-profit Homeless Not Toothless (www.homelessnottoothless.org), Dr. Grossman has made it possible for thousands of homeless people to receive over $2-million of dental care over the past 20 years. The United States Navy recognized Dr. Grossman for his philanthropic efforts and he was the subject of national media coverage in magazines including Time, People, and Better Homes & Gardens. He also received the KNX Citizen of the Week award twice, as well as the American Dental Association’s Community Preventative Dentistry Award for his outreach program. In 2009, the California Dental Association recognized his exemplary volunteer service that increased access to oral health care by awarding him philanthropist of the year.
In 2009, actress Sharon Stone joined Dr Grossman’s Homeless Not Toothless board as they combined their efforts to open a stand alone medical and dental clinic that will treat the 28,000 children presently in Los Angeles’s foster care system. In the summer of 2009, the medical side of the clinic has opened, and the dental aspect in nearing completion as they continue to fundraise for the remaining money needed to complete this project.
Since 1995, Dr. Grossman has been a member of the attending staff, a lecturer, and a teacher at the UCLA College of Dentistry's Residency Program.
