Hazzouri Cosmetic, Implant & Family Dentistry was established in 1949 by Dr. Albert A. Hazzouri Sr. Since then, the name Hazzouri has become a household word among Scranton and Northeast Pennsylvania-area residents, synonymous with the very best in dental care and affordability.
Following in his father’s footsteps, his son has become an outstanding cosmetic dentist in the Scranton Wilkes/Barre area. Dr. Albert A. Hazzouri Jr, says that, “In our office, we share two simple beliefs. With the finest care, any smile can be beautiful, and everyone should be able to afford a beautiful smile. Our quality care is kept within every family’s budget. Dr. Louis A. Genello and I provide all the quality dentistry your family will ever need.”
Dr. Albert A. Hazzouri Jr., graduated from Scranton Preparatory School 1974, received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology in 1978 from Le Moyne College in Syracuse, New York, and his Master of Science in Biochemistry in 1980 from the University of Scranton.
Dr. Hazzouri went on to earn his Doctor of Dental Surgery in 1984 at Temple University School of Dentistry in Philadelphia.
In order to remain a top cosmetic dentist in Northeast Pennsylvania, Dr. Hazzouri continued learning the very latest techniques at some of the best dental schools in the country.
