Dr. Frial also attended dental school at UCLA, where he graduated at the top of his class and received numerous honors and awards. After his dental training, he went on to specialize in orthodontics at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).

In fact, he was a past consultant and clinical evaluator of new orthodontic products for 3M Unitek, a leading orthodontic manufacturer. Dr. Frial is a past associate professor at the UCLA orthodontic program. He taught at UCLA for 10 years. He was voted "Orthodontist of the Year" by the editors of Consumer Business Review.
