Dr. Steven Kupferman was born in southern California and was happy to move back after his education to practice in Los Angeles. Growing up, Dr. Kupferman knew he wanted to go to dental school after his uncle, a dentist, served as a type of mentor. He pursued oral surgery when he realized he could make a bigger difference and provide patients with a more effective change. Dr. Kupferman enjoys experiencing the appreciation his patients express after treatment. He likes the feeling of being a specialist, and his focus on jaw surgery and treatment of jaw dysfunction allows him to provide patients with care that not everyone can offer.
