“I believe having a healthy smile is about more than your teeth. It can change your life.”
Dr. Welebir obtained his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS), anesthesia training, and postgraduate implant education from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry. Always on a search to gain more knowledge he completed a surgical residency in zygomatic implantology at the Malo Clinic in Lisbon, Portugal with the founder/inventor of Nobel Biocare’s All-on-4® treatment protocol, Dr. Palo Malo. Dr. Welebir holds state board licensure in both California and Nevada, as well as special permits for IV sedation anesthesia. He is a graduate of the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, holds awards from both the American Association of Endodontists and the American Academy of Dental Practice Administration, and has been a certified provider of Invisalign® orthodontics in conjunction with implant dentistry since 2001.
Dr. Welebir is a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry (the first doctor to do so in the State of Nevada), an Associate Fellow with the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (his Fellow is pending this year), and a Fellow with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. He is also a member of the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology, American Dental Association, Nevada Dental Association, and the Southern Nevada Dental Society.
In his free time, Dr. Welebir enjoys most outdoor pursuits, particularly surfing, snow skiing, scuba diving, and racing motorcycles. He plays multiple musical instruments and loves to cook, spend time with his wife and young son. He also enjoys listening to his ever-expanding music collection, and makes an effort to pursue his ultimate passion, free-dive spearfishing (ask him about it!), whenever possible.
