Husband/wife dentists team open La Jolla Dental Boutique: Take over for retired Dr. Jacob Russell


Erez and Irene Nosrati are a formidable dental duo. Together, they started the La Jolla Dental Boutique last year, taking over the practice and the dental office space of recently retired Dr. Jacob Russell at 525 Nautilus St. The husband-and-wife dentist team combined forces after moving here from Chicago, where they each had separate practices. Now they offer a one-stop concierge dental service.

Dr. Irene Nosrati explains: “Between the two of us, we cover all the aspects as far as dental procedures go. I do most of the general and cosmetic work — crowns, veneers and Invisalign. I also do root canals with a microscope. Erez is a board-certified periodontist and dental-implant specialist, so we work together to bring a comprehensive approach so people can get everything they need in one location instead of having to be referred out constantly and have that hassle.”

Dr. Erez Nosrati says he’s the only certified dentist in La Jolla to offer Pinhole Gum Recession Surgery, which is a minimally invasive procedure to treat receding gums. No incisions or sutures are necessary. He uses a needle to make a small hole in the patient’s gum tissue and through this pinhole, special instruments are used to gently loosen the gum tissues and then expand and slide the gumline to cover the exposed root structure. It provides faster recovery and less discomfort for patients.
