Meet The Doctors

 Meet Dr. Dino

Dr. Dino received his dental education from the University of Southern California (USC) School of Dentistry, where he earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) with high honors. Prior to attending USC, he graduated magna cum laude from Loyola Marymount University (LMU) with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology.

 He has spent most of his life in southern California and calls the City of Burbank his home. He is very passionate about his career and is proud to call himself a dentist. Through the years, he has had the experience of training at several practices, where he has learned the ins and outs of dentistry. His one core belief from his experience is that if you provide your patients with honest and professional care, they will appreciate your work.

 Dr. Dino is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), the California Dental Association (CDA), the Burbank Chamber of Commerce, the San Fernando Valley Dental Society, and the Armenian American Medical Society (AAMS).

 Dr. Dino was born with a cleft lip and cleft palate (a condition where the palate of the mouth and the upper lip do not completely close), which resulted in many visits to the dentist, orthodontist, and oral surgeon throughout his young life. This experience has given Dr. Dino the ability to experience dentistry from the patient’s point of view, which allows him the unique advantage of understanding the fears, concerns, and emotions of his patients.

 In his spare time, Dr. Dino likes to travel with his wife, snowboard, hike, and is up for any other outdoor adventure.

 “There are many ways to practice dentistry, but there is only one way to practice honest dentistry.”

 “I genuinely enjoy what I do and I love treating all members of the family. I understand that every patient is different and I am here to care for your personal needs. I look forward to treating you and to making you a member of my family. If you have any questions that I can help answer, please send me an email and I would be happy to chat with you.”   

– Dr. Dino

 Meet Dr. Angie

Dr. Angie is originally from Hollywood, California but spent the greater part of her life growing up in Burbank.

 She graduated magna cum laude from California State University, Northridge (CSUN) with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology. Afterwards, she applied to and was immediately accepted into her dream program, University of Southern California’s Dental School.  There she earned her Doctorate degree in Dental Surgery (DDS) and graduated with high honors.

 She was accepted into the highly competitive and esteemed General Practice Residency at the University of Southern California, working at the Los Angeles County Hospital and at the Los Angeles Veteran’s Hospital. The GPR program increased her knowledge in treating medically complicated cases, in hospital dentistry, and in completing full mouth rehabilitation cases. After completing the program, Dr. Angie was asked to stay on as a faculty member at the Los Angeles County Hospital where she would be able to teach and mentor incoming residents.

 She is an active member of the California Dental Association (CDA), the American Dental Association (ADA), the San Fernando Valley Dental Society, the Burbank Chamber of Commerce, and the California Federation of Business and Professional Women.

 Dr. Angie has been practicing dentistry for several years, but has been passionate in becoming a dentist from a very young age. Her father loves to tell the story of her first “dental exams,” using a fork and a spoon, on family members.  She was also a frequent visitor of her childhood dentist (having been “blessed” with horrible dental genes), giving her a unique sense of empathy to be able to relate to her patients.

 In her spare time, she likes to travel with her husband, bake breads and desserts (the “healthy” kinds), and enjoys any outdoor activity (including hiking and surfing).

 “I’ve been a patient in the chair. I can relate to what you’re thinking, how you’re feeling, and what you’re anticipating. Let me help guide you through each step, and, together, we can make your visit to the dentist something to look forward to.” – Dr. Angie
