Doctor's Bio

Dr. Iati's style is relaxed and comforting.  His skills are artistic and detailed.  His patients travel from near and far to receive care from one of the finest cosmetic and restorative dentists. 


His election to a 4-year term to the Board of Directors of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) clearly defines his role as a leader in the field of cosmetic dentistry.


Dr. Iati brings the panache and quality of the big city to Northeast Ohio.  His practice is focused on cosmetic, reconstructive, TMJ, and facial rejuvenation.  However, he is experienced in all facets of general dentistry for patients of all ages.  Dr. Iati offers digital X-rays, laser cavity detection, computerized TMJ diagnosis/treatment (neuromuscular dentistry), and computerized anesthetic delivery for pain-free injections.  For relaxation, Dr. Iati offers in-room flat screen televisions, satellite radio, paraffin hand dips, and a warm towel finish sending you refreshed after your visit.


Botox and Juvederm treatments (FDA approved procedures) are also a part of Dr. Iati's practice. In addition to aesthetic improvements, Botox is also indicated for the treatment of migraines and TMJ. Patients can experience virtual painless derma-filler as he anesthetizes the area prior to the procedure.  Historically, patients were coming to Dr. Iati to be numbed prior to having dermafiller procedures elsewhere.  For nearly a decade, Dr. Iati now provides both services for his patients.


Chao Pinhole Certified: Dr. Iati is one of the first 1,600 dentists in the WORLD to become certified in this revolutionary gum replacement technique.  Conventional grafting procedures are now obsolete resulting in no scapel, no sutures, no painful shot in the roof of the mouth, and no cutting of tissue from the roof causing the dreaded "pizza burn" feeling afterwards.   Pain is greatly reduced, healing time is expedited, and results are proven as seen in the before and after photos.


Invisalign:  Dr. Iati is an Invisalign Preferred Provider.


Education & Community Service: Dr. Iati received his B.S. from The Ohio State University (Go, Bucks!) in 1983 and received his D.D.S. from Case Western Reserve University in 1987. He completed a one-year general practice residency at Western Reserve Care Systems before beginning his practice at Stow Dental Group in Stow, Ohio in 1988. 


Dr. Iati is involved in numerous charitable activities and organizations in the community such as the Chamber of Commerce and is a fourth degree in Knights of Columbus.  He has traveled abroad many times to donate his time and talents to those less fortunate in third world countries.  Dr. Iati currently volunteers at Open M dental clinic in Akron, Ohio.
