Dr. Gary Solnit attended The University of Southern California from 1978-1982 and then received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) from The University of Southern California in 1986. He then went on to do a two-year residency at the University of Iowa, becoming Certified in the specialty of Prosthodontics. In addition, he earned a Master of Science (M.S.) degree in dental research with implants in 1988.
Dr. Solnit has restored thousands of dental implants for patients of all ages and has become an international lecturer on the subject. As a Certified Specialist in Prosthodontics he treats complex dental cases that are usually considered to be beyond the scope of care that would be rendered by most general dentists. Along with the complex cases a good portion of his practice is devoted to General Dentistry at an extremely high level.
As a Fellow of the International Team of Oral Implantology, he is actively involved in researching new techniques in implant dentistry.
Dr. Solnit has had leadership positions in the many professional organizations of which he is a member, including the American College of Prosthodontists, the Pacific Coast Society for Prosthodontics (Executive Council/Annual Scientific Session Chairman), the Academy of Osseointegration, Platform for Exchange of Education and Research (PEERS), and the Western Prosthodontic Study Club. He is also a Fellow of the American College of Dentists (FACD), a Fellow of the International Team for Implantology (ITI), Director of the West Coast ITI Study Club (WCITI), and a past president of the Beverly Hills Academy of Dentistry.
In addition to active involvement in these organizations, Dr. Solnit continues to instruct other doctors in restorative implant techniques both in training courses and student externships held in his office. He is past Director of Occlusion at USC, and currently maintains an adjunct faculty position. He has published many articles in refereed dental journals and has contributed a chapter to a leading textbook on dental implants.
When he’s not in the office, Dr. Solnit enjoys road and mountain bike riding, skiing, hiking, and weight training with his wife of 18 years. He has ridden many road bike Centuries, raced with U.S. Cycling, and climbed Mount Whitney in one day. He also enjoys going to Trojan Football, Clippers, and many other sports games with his two sons. This all leaves very little time for two more joys in his life: Sculpting and painting.
