Leo Eliezer, DMD
ICOI Diplomate. ADIA Diplomate
Dr. Leo Eliezer founded Jones Bridge Dental Care in 1996, going from zero to in-excess of 9,000 patients by 2016. His passion for cosmetic and implant dentistry has allowed him to give people beautiful smiles and restore function in missing teeth.
“I am proud to have served patients in our community for over 30 years. My staff and I are committed to providing dentistry, along with technology, in a caring, relaxing, safe environment, building lifelong relationships among our community and patients.”
“My mission in dentistry is to provide the best quality of dentistry, best customer service, and strive to be the best team in Atlanta.
Dr. Leo Eliezer was born in Baku city, former USSR. Dr. Leo completed his education at Azerbaijan State University for Medical/Dental training from 1975-1980.
He did his residency in periodontal and prosthodontic dentistry in the USSR and practiced as a general dentist from 1980 to 1990.
After 10 years of practicing in the USSR, Dr. Leo and his family moved to the United States. In August of 1992, he was accepted to Tufts University School of Dentistry in Boston, MA, for advanced dental study. He completed the four-year program in two and a half years, graduating in November of 1994.
Continuing Education & Professional Memberships
Dr. Leo is a registered member of the Academy of General Dentistry, Dental Organization of Conscience Sedation (DOCS), Academy of Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry and Alpha Omega Fraternity. In 1988, Dr. Leo penned a chapter in the Book of Periodontics regarding pre and post-periodontal surgery with a unique, red laser hand piece. He has also written numerous articles from 1985-2008 on oral health for various newsletters.
The dental professional has logged over 4,000 registered continuing education hours which qualifies him for Fellowship and Mastership in the Academy of Dentistry, attended extensive training in both cosmetic and restorative dentistry and received guidance from some of the finest clinical mentors in the country.
Dr. Leo was elevated to the Diplomate status, the highest status of Dental Implantology within the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) on August 24, 2007 during the ICOI World Congress XXV & 10th Annual IPS Symposium, held in San Francisco, California.
Dr. Leo is one of just a few dentists in Georgia to receive this honor. Nominees for Diplomate come from two sources: ICOI Vice Presidents may nominate such individuals for approval by the Board of Directors and the Diplomate Committee. Such candidates are chosen from amongst those who have most significantly contributed to the art and science of oral implantology.
The ICOI also conducts a Diplomate program in which active members are encouraged to achieve Diplomate status through their efforts in education, research and actual clinical experience. All Diplomates of the ICOI may designate “D.I.C.O.I.” after their names.
Dr. Leo was awarded Diplomate status a second time by the Board of Directors of the International Dental Implant Association in September of 2011 in Miami, FL. Very few dentists obtain Diplomate status in Dental Implantology twice in their lifetimes, especially by two different globally-recognized organizations.
