Vancouver WA Periodontist - Mikhail Garibov DDSDr. Garibov graduated from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry in the top ten percent of his class. He received Comprehensive Care Award, Russell W. Bunting Periodontal Society Award, and became an Omicron Kappa Upsilon member due to his outstanding achievements. He continued his education to complete a 3-year specialty periodontics training at the University of Washington School of Dentistry and earned Master of Science in Dentistry degree.

Prior to his dental education, Dr. Garibov attended Clark College where he earned an Associate of Arts degree and finished University of Washington with a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry. He then worked at Seattle Children’s Research Institute (SCRI) investigating Targeted Gene Insertion techniques for treatment of genetic diseases in children. During his tenure at SCRI, Dr. Garibov was published as a co-author in two articles in a prestigious science journal “Nature.”

Dr. Garibov is proficient in all aspects of surgical periodontal care and makes excellent patient experience in his office a top priority. After completing the residency program, he received specialized clinical training in lasers for periodontal surgical care. Laser therapy (LANAP®) to treat periodontal disease has been proven by peer-reviewed studies to be a less-invasive alternative to conventional periodontal surgery while delivering comparable results.

Dr. Garibov moved to Vancouver in 2003 at the age of 17 when his family emigrated from Moscow, Russia. After living in Seattle, Portland, and Ann Arbor, MI, Dr. Garibov and his wife Nataliia, who is also a dentist, decided to settle down in Vancouver and are excited to be a part of the local community. Outside of the office, Dr. Garibov is busy raising his 2 daughters, Sofia and Victoria, and enjoys playing soccer.
