Dr. Kotchounian was born in Montreal and grew up in Los Angeles. After dental school, she started her career by completing a general-practice hospital residency in the Bronx, New York. There, she began to under- stand the crucial connection between oral health and that of the rest of the body. She currently serves as the ethics chair of the San Fernando Valley Dental Society and, as a student, was on the board of the USC School of Dentistry Ethics Committee. She practices in tandem with Dr. Sako Karakozian.
Tool They Can’t Live Without
“The iTero 3D intraoral scanner is one of our most valuable tools. It’s pretty awesome to be able to scan patients’ teeth in front of them and allow them to view their teeth on a screen and play around with their 3D renderings.”
“Patience and being a good listener are my greatest assets and truly define how I practice dentistry. We can learn so much from our patients when they can comfortably explain their thoughts, desires, fears and goals.”
