Orthodontist Los Angeles
Paul Sablan Sauget, DDS, MSD
Dr. Paul Sablan Sauget (Dr. Paul), originally from San Leandro, California, received his Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Sciences from Marquette University, where he played NCAA Division I tennis and earned a 4.0 GPA in his major. He moved on to San Francisco where he earned his DDS and graduated with honors from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry. Dr. Paul went on to become a U.S. Navy and Marine Corps dentist, where he was stationed at 29 Palms Air Ground Combat Center and Naval Air Station Lemoore. During his 4-year service, Dr. Paul became a Fleet Marine Force Warfare Officer. He was then in charge of the Ops Side Dental Clinic at NAS Lemoore and periodically the interim department head for Navy Branch Dental Clinic, Monterey CA.
After serving the Navy, Dr. Paul earned his certificate in Orthodontics and his Masters of Science in Dentistry degree at Indiana University. As an orthodontic resident, one of Dr. Paul’s patient cases was selected by the orthodontics department to represent Indiana University at the 2010 American Association of Orthodontists National Conference in Washington, D.C. That same year, Dr. Paul joined his older brother’s orthodontic practice in Guam where he treated several orthognathic surgery cases, cleft lip/palate for the UCSF Hillblom Foundation, and countless military families and residents of the U.S. territory in private practice. He introduced cone beam CT, functional appliances, and laser technology to that office. In return, he gained valuable clinical experience in the western Pacific as patients were coming from many areas of the United States and other countries with a variety of orthodontic techniques and systems.
Now that Dr. Paul has returned home to California, he is extremely excited to be a part of Dr. Alpan’s Alpan Orthodontics team. He is also pursuing his second passion as an upper level student at the Beverly Hills Playhouse acting school. Dr. Paul has several years of film, television commercial, and theatre experience, which he would do alongside his dental education and career. His hobbies include: Xterra triathlon (which he raced in the 2012 Xterra World Championships), mountain biking (coming in 1st place in his age group at the 2012 Tour de Tinian 100km mountain bike race), playing guitar for different rock bands, auto racing/car shows, scuba diving, hiking, camping (Eagle Scout), and spending time with friends, family, and his German shepherd dog.
