Some of Dr. Boyajian’s art is displayed throughout the office, including his highly regarded tribute paintings to artists like Cezanne and Aivazovsky. Feel free to stop by our office and check out his artwork.

Dentistry is a big part of my life. My father is a dentist and as a child, he used to take me often with him to his dental office . Being around him and seeing his passion for what he does, and how he gets joy out of helping people had a big influence on me. I have developed the same affinity for this career. I have graduated from Loma Linda University in 2008 with a degree in advanced prosthodontics and followed that with a degree in maxillofacial prosthodontics at UCLA in 2010 . In 2014 I have joined the advanced prosthodontics clinic at UCLA ; and I teach there mondays since then.
Integrity, excellence,and striving to give my best in my work are values that I take pride in. These qualities, after all, are what my father displayed all of his career. I love working with my team here at Elite Dentistry . We all enjoy our work and share the same vision. we work as a team to provide the best dental treatment to our patients in the most relaxing peaceful atmosphere possible.
Outside of dentistry, I enjoy all aspects of life. Into hiking, sight seeing and visiting new places. I’m a big foodie; i enjoy good food and into new fads. I love people , and that’s why I like to give and help in my community.
