Dr. Joseph Sarkissian studied microbiology at the University of Alabama. He then attended the dental school of the University of Goettingen in the former West Germany, where he graduated in 1989.
Over the next eight years he practiced dentistry on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. During that time he trained in homeopathy, completely abandoned the use of amalgam (mercury) fillings, and expanded his knowledge in the biological aspects of therapy.
In 1998, he moved to Los Angeles and received his license to practice in California. He currently owns a state-of-the-art biological dental practice in Glendale, California.

Esther Sohn RDH
Esther Sohn joined our team earlier this year. She has been amazingly popular among our patients and has implemented many of our holistic approaches to our dental hygiene and prophylaxis programs.
We will hereby let her introduce herself in the following paragraph:
“My name is Esther and I am a dental hygienist. I graduated from LLUSD in 2003 and I come from a family of dental and medical professionals. I believe in educating people about their oral health so that they can make informed decisions. I value prevention before treatment, simplicity, and consistency. Life gives us many reasons to smile and I’m here to help maintain that smile.”
Jessica has been a part of Dr. Sarkissian’s office for a few years. She was hired right out of dental assisting college and it is not an understatement to say that she has excelled and come a long way as a valuable asset in the back office. She promptly acquired the skills and experience not only to become an excellent assistant but also as a valuable asset in the front reception department.
Nellie is a part-time employee who is also a pre-dental university student. We took her on board right after she graduated high school. She stands out with her warm and pleasant personality. In no time she proved herself as being smart, media-savvy, and a problem solver. She is always willing to launch herself into any arena, circumstance, or department, whether it be front desk, back office, or chairside assisting. She also contributes in social media, video editing, and public relations.
