Our Difference in Oral Surgery: Glendale’s Lytle, Tate and Stamper

When it comes to something as important as oral surgery, Glendale patients want to ensure that the medical and dental professionals on whom they are relying are best suited for their needs.

At Lytle, Tate and Stamper, we believe our work distinguishes our practice in several ways, and so we welcome a careful review by those we serve. In particular, LTS points to three areas of distinction: experience, quality, and leadership in the field of oral surgery.


Lytle, Tate and Stamper opened its doors in Southern California in 1929. Though many things have changed over the decades we have offered dental services and oral surgery, Glendale patients will recognize that the most important characteristics still define us.

The value of experience is reflected in both our practice’s tenure and in the independent doctors who are part of Lytle, Tate and Stamper. Each professional has worked for years in medical and dental surgery. Glendale patients benefit from doctors who have addressed a variety of oral health concerns, who understand the intricacies of dental procedures, and who take the client’s preferences into consideration when prescribing treatment.


Oral surgery is our specialty. Glendale patients who choose LTS are seen by doctors who are experts in these procedures, from dental implants to wisdom teeth extraction. As a result, patients can feel confident in the quality of our work.

Lytle, Tate and Stamper doctors have practiced in the most advanced techniques in oral surgery. We choose materials, appliances, and methods that give patients long-lasting results and that promote excellent oral health.

Unlike some other practices, we spend time choosing the method of treatment that will best serve the patient rather than the method that will be the most expedient. We also take time to ensure that the results of treatment reflect the highest level of quality.


Doctors at LTS are leaders in the field of oral surgery. Glendale patients will note, among other achievements, that:
• Dr. Elgan P. Stamper acted as an examiner for the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and served as a past president of both the American and California Associations of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
• Dr. John L. Lytle was Director of Undergraduate Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Southern California, is a past president of California Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, and serves currently as an examiner for the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
• Dr. Robert J. Lytle is President of the Glendale Academy of Dentists, a member of the California Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, and a member of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.

By participating in the leadership of organizations and advancing the research of oral surgery techniques, LTS doctors are able to serve patients more effectively.
