Doctor Stout was born and raised in Southern California. He earned his bachelor’s degree at Brigham Young University, attending as a President’s Scholar and graduating magna cum laude. He then earned his doctorate at the UCLA School of Dentistry, attending as a Regents Scholar and graduating with highest honors. His academic achievements have earned him membership in two of the most prestigious national honor societies, Phi Kappa Phi and Omicron Kappa Upsilon.
Doctor Stout completed four years of formal specialty training at the UCLA Medical Center, where he scored in the top one percent of all surgery residents in the U.S. He earned board-certification in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in his first year of eligibility.
He established his specialty practice of oral surgery and dental implant reconstruction in 1992, with offices in Oxnard and Camarillo. He is also director of the Anacapa Study Club, an education institute where he and other scholars train fellow dentists in dental implant techniques.

Doctor Stout is one of the most sought-after surgeons in California. His expertise in dental implant reconstruction is well-established, and patients fly in from across the United States and the Pacific Rim to seek his care. His skills are complemented by state-of the art facilities and exceptional team members who share his dedication.
He is married to his lovely college sweetheart, and they are the parents of six children. He has a love of movies (check out our collection of vintage movie posters in our offices), dirt bikes, dark chocolate, basketball (especially his beloved UCLA Bruins) and spending time with his family. He suspended his college studies for two years to serve as a missionary in Taiwan, so he is always looking for a chance to brush up on his Mandarin Chinese.
Quite simply, having treatment from an experienced, board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgery specialist gives you the highest chance for successful treatment. Instead of attempting in vain to be a master of all dentistry, a board-certified surgeon limits his practice to only surgical treatments such as difficult tooth extractions, dental implants, gum surgery and jaw bone reconstruction. In addition, oral surgeons are trained and licensed to administer general anesthesia.
It is technically legal for any licensed dentist to perform any dental procedure. But when a non-surgeon such as a periodontist (gum specialist) or general dentist attends a weekend crash course on sedation pills or dental implants, he does not become equally qualified or prepared to diagnose, treat, or handle all the potential complications that can arise in surgery. Specialty staff training also plays a vital role in the practice of true surgical specialty care.
Oral and maxillofacial surgery is the only surgical specialty recognized by the American Dental Association. Oral surgeons are required to have 4 to 6 additional years of formal, accredited training after completing dental school. This hospital-based residency is brutally rigorous, usually requiring 80-90 hour workweeks. Following residency, the board certification exam requires years of preparation to pass; in fact, many surgeons never do.
Our practice is exclusively focused on oral surgery, dental implant treatment and oral reconstruction. This specialized expertise means we can deliver cutting-edge treatments that other offices cannot. Our practice is the destination for discerning patients who demand the very highest level of surgical expertise, who have been told implants were not possible, or who have suffered treatment failures.
Trusting your care to an experienced, board-certified oral surgeon will always be the right choice.
Doctor Stout couldn’t bring to pass his vision of excellence without the support of committed team members. We hire the very best people and put them through intense training to ensure each one is expertly trained and perfectly suited to care for you.
We love what we do, and that passion inspires us to go above and beyond “average.” You deserve more than just an average experience at a dental office; you deserve an exceptional one.
These aren’t just catchy slogans; our commitment to your treatment success is the very essence of what we do.
