There is a much-hated dentist in L.A. named Alex Buznikov who received Dentist License No. 51322 in the year 2003. After numerous complaints from patients, his dental license was revoked in 2019. The revocation, however, was stayed and he was merely given a four-year probationary term. As part of the settlement, he agreed to pay $21,000 to the Dental Board of California.

In the years after, the Board received additional complaints. Buznikov’s license was again revoked in April/May 2023 and the revocation was again stayed with a two-year probationary term.

Thereafter, the Board received more complaints, one as recently as September 26, 2023.
