Mark A. Luzania, DDS
Dr. Mark Luzania was born and raised Reedley, California where he maintains his dental practice. After graduating with honors from the University of California, San Francisco School of Dentistry in 1988, Dr. Luzania opened California’s first completely digitally networked dental practice in 1995. At that time, Dr. Luzania helped to develop and perfect the software companies’ dental software programs to what has now become standard of care procedures for modern dental offices, such as digital dental x-rays. He helped Schick Technologies test their “Computed Dental Radiography” during 1995 and 1996, Schick CDR is now the most widely-used dental imaging software used today.
In 2004 Dr. Luzania began placing his own dental implants, a service which is still usually done by specialists. However, in order to allow his rural and elderly patients the opportunity to have these services without having to travel to a larger city of unfamiliar surroundings, Dr. Luzania chose to attend a residency program where he was able to learn this skill.
In 2007, Dr. Luzania incorporated the Tekscan Computerized Bite Analyzer (T-scan) into his practice. Since then, he has looked at the relationship of the teeth, jaw, and jaw-muscles in an entirely new way. The T-scan allows the movement of the jaw to be slowed allowing Dr. Luzania to see when, where, and how heavily any tooth touches against another. It is through his work with the T-scan that Dr. Luzania has been able to help many patients end their suffering from head, neck, shoulder, or jaw pain. He is very excited about the revolutionary treatment dentists are able to provide to their patients that will end the debilitating effects of TMJ disorder.
