Health is my personal passion — not only for myself and my family, but for every patient who trusts me with theirs. I make a commitment, even a professional promise, to you and your loved ones that you will leave my office with the empowering ability to control your dental destiny. Imagine never needing dental treatment again! That is my goal for you, and together we can achieve it.
Health-oriented dentistry has been a Gazarian family legacy for over 40 years. These four decades of evolving experience and education have enabled me to blend a unique combination of dental knowledge and clinical expertise. The result is comprehensive care on a whole new level — a personal level that you will love.

Optimal dental health is a critical part of overall health, happiness, and beauty. For some, achieving and maintaining that excellent level of health comes easily and naturally. But, for others, it can sometimes seem difficult, expensive, or overwhelming. The truth is, it doesn’t have to be. We do it every day. We take something daunting and create a clear, easy, and affordable plan of action. It’s actually simple. All we do is:
• Focus on what’s best for YOU, the patient.
• Provide a complete and thorough explanation of the pro’s, con’s, and options you have.
• Empower you with knowledge so you can control your own dental destiny!
The two main dental problems we battle on a daily basis are cavities and gum disease. In this fight, there’s good news and bad news. The bad news is:
• 92% of adults (ages 20 to 64) have had cavities in their permanent teeth.
• 42% of children (ages 2 to 11) have had cavities in their baby teeth.
• 47-71% of adults have periodontal (gum) disease.
Although those numbers make dental disease sound nearly unavoidable, the truth is quite the opposite. The good news is: dental cavities and gum disease are completely and utterly preventable!
As someone who’s personal passion is health and knowledge, it’s my mission to provide the knowledge you need to achieve your dental goals. That is what you can expect at your first appointment: a dentist generous with his time and interested in YOU. I promise you’ll love it and come out smiling :) I look forward to meeting and helping you.

It’s all connected. Health is one big circle — because inflammation in one location is inflammation everywhere.
The mouth is a unique place. It’s the only place in the body where hard tissue comes out through soft tissue. This creates an opportunity for bacteria to invade. And thus, gums are so easily inflamed, and often chronically inflamed.
Damage to overall health begins with chronic inflammation. Side effects include insulin resistance and rising blood sugar, which leads to diabetes. Other side effects are narrowing of arteries and reduced elasticity. This eventually leads to heart disease. And the list of side effects goes on… In most cases, causal relationships have been shown — this is much more significant than a simple correlation.
Good dental health is thus critical because those negative health effects are easily avoided. It is my goal to educate and motivate you to help achieve this in an easy and maintainable way that you will also enjoy. That's a promise.
