Meet Dr. Yanni

Hello, I am Peter Yanni, DMD, MS. I am thrilled you are taking the time to learn more about me and my passion for periodontics.

Originally from Southern California, I earned my Bachelors in Biological Sciences at the University of California Irvine. Following that, I earned both my Masters in Medical Sciences as well as my Dental Degree at Western University of Health Sciences. It was there, I developed a passion for periodontics and providing compassionate surgical care for my patients. I was recognized with several awards and achievements that include: Western University’s Presidents Society Award, Deans List, the American Academy of Periodontology’s Dental Student Award for Achievements in Periodontics and Induction into the OKU National Dental Honor Society.

My interest in periodontics led me to San Francisco, where I earned my Masters in Oral and Craniofacial Sciences, as well as my Certificate in Periodontics at the University of California, San Francisco. While at UCSF, I underwent rigorous didactic and clinical surgical training in the full scope of Periodontics which include, Gum grafts, Bone grafts, placement of Dental Implants,  treatment of Periodontal disease and Peri-implant  disease management.

My philosophy for providing patients with exceptional periodontal care and compassion while utilizing the latest cutting-edge technology led me to join Dr. Vasanthan and his amazing team. I am committed to providing personalized and unique care tailored to the individual needs of my patients. When not in the office, I enjoy playing a myriad of sports ranging from Basketball and Football to Table tennis and attending live music events with friends.

I sincerely thank you for trusting me with your oral health care needs and look forward to meeting you!
