Skills and Specialities

Dentistry is both a science and an art. Dr. Alassy is fortunate enough to have mastered the science of dentistry. Microsurgery and cosmetic procedures are fulfilling when we can replicate mother nature’s beauty on a healthy smile.


Dr. Alassy, like many of us at LifeTime Smiles of OC grew up with a sweet tooth… so he visited the dental office often as a child. Even though he was terrified of going to every visit, the dentists made him feel so comfortable. Each of his childhood dentists worked very well and he is passionate about comforting all of his patients the same way. Having a son is by far Dr. Alassy’s greatest accomplishment (which he had little to do with anyway). His son is indeed the apple of his eye. In the past Dr. Alassy identified as a surgeon but now he is most importantly a dad. Exploring new adventures with his wife and son takes all his spare time. They like new hikes and exploring the satisfying southern California beaches. When winter comes, they take advantage of snow activities whenever possible.
