A Team Approach to Dental Care
We’ve assembled a team of experienced dental auxiliaries who are committed to creating an environment that is warm and friendly. Our dedication to personal attention makes our patients feel comfortable and confident at every visit.
Anashe graduated from the University Of Southern California in 2004 receiving her Bachelor’s of Science degree in Dental Hygiene. In 2006 she received her Dental Hygiene in Alternative Practice license from the University of The Pacific, to be trained in working and treating patients with special needs. She joined Dr. Kouyoumdjian’s staff in 2006 and has been working there ever since. She is inspired by all the positive feedback she receives from her patients and that helps her strive for excellence. She believes that by educating her patients, not only can she improve their oral hygiene but can make a difference in their over-all health.
“I want patients to feel comfortable and I want them to know that we are motivated to provide them with the best dental care to meet thier individual needs.”
Gemma is an alumnus of University of Southern California where she received her Bachelor’s of Science in Dental Hygiene in May 2002. She has been a member of Dr. Kouyoumdjian’s dental hygiene staff since January 2003. She enjoys getting to know her patients and collaborating with them to establish and maintain good oral health.
Currently she lives in San Diego and drives twice a week to Studio City to work. While she is here in the Los Angeles area, she spends her time visiting family members. In her spare time (when she’s not stuck on the 5 Fwy), she loves to take long walks with the dogs, hiking/walking at the beach during the weekend, and looks forward to all the beauty that awaits her in San Diego.
Amy attended the University of Southern California and earned her bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene in 2004. Amy joined the team with Dr. Kouyoumdjian after her completion of her dental hygiene degree.
Amy continued to earn her master’s degree in organizational leadership from Woodbury University in 2006. Her goal is to provide each of our patients with the most secure and comfortable experience and top-quality care by catering to his or her unique set of needs. She is very passionate about her career and enjoys every minute of it. On the weekends, Amy likes hiking, cooking, painting and spending time with her family.
Andrea has been with Dr. Kouyoumdjian since February of 2011. She was born and raised in Lake Tahoe California and moved to the southern part of the state in 2006 to attend dental hygiene school. She graduated from Cerritos College in 2008 with honors and an associates degree. What Andrea enjoys most about her career is the relationships she builds with patients while working as a team to achieve their best health.
Anahit joined Dr. Kouyoumdjian shortly after the completion of her Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene from University of Southern California in 2008. Her experience in scaling and root planning with children, adults, special needs patients, severe periodontal involved patients, periodontal maintenance patients and elderly/medically compromised patients makes her diversely skilled in oral health based programs and prevention oriented dental practice. Although still young in her career, she’s filled with much enthusiasm and shows personal care for her patients’ oral health.
Anahit is a member of American Dental Hygiene Organization, Student Professional Ethics Club and American Dental Educators Association. In her spare time, she loves spending time with her family, reading and playing on an instrument called “kanon.”
Denee has over 25 years of dental experience and has worn many hats over the years. She has been working chairside with Dr Kouyoumdjian since 1995.
Denee’s goal is to help make every patient experience comfortable and pleasant. Her passion for dentistry keeps her involved in continuing education classes and she always has time to stay on top of the latest technological and procedural advancements in the art of dentistry.
When she’s not working, Denee enjoys reading, yoga, and spending time with her family and friends
Graduated from United Education Institute in 2010, although one of the newest members to join the team with Dr Kouyoumdjian as dental assistant, my goal is to make certain each patient has the most comfortable dental experience. I enjoy not only continuing to learn every day but also educating our patients with the highest and most advanced dental treatment our team provides. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my son, and interact in social and productive activities.
Born and raised in Burbank California, Toni has been in the Dental field for 36 years. Toni has been with Dr Kouyoumdjian’s dental team since 1998 and continues to make people smile.
Toni has the infectious cheerful spirit and truly enjoys helping patients with scheduling appointments and helping with any insurance or financial questions they may have, or just a quick chat to say hello. In her spare time she enjoys life, spending her weekends in the mountains, boating, hiking, cooking and working out.
“I love working with our team providing quality dentistry in the most comfortable environment”
