Dr. Livshin immigrated to the United States in 1978 from St. Petersburg, Russia. After growing up in Brookline, MA, Dr. Livshin went on to Boston University, where he received his Bachelor’s degree. He enrolled at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine where he received his DMD. Then, Dr. Livshin dedicated his dental expertise and his life to the United States Air Force. There, he completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry at Bolling Air Force Base, Washington DC. With this program, he received hands-on experience in complex dental restorative procedures, dental implants, root canal therapy, impacted wisdom teeth extractions, cosmetic procedures, migraine/myofascial pain therapy, and IV and oral sedation dentistry.
Since then, Dr. Livshin continues to refine his education. He explores advances in the safe and effective use of oral and intravenous sedation for fearful patients who desire and need general, cosmetic and implant dentistry. He is committed to helping people with severe anxiety who have neglected their teeth for years. “Too many people live with pain, the inability to chew, and embarrassing teeth because they are terrified of the dentist and I want to provide these patients with access to care they need and deserve,” he says.
