Interview with Dr. Leo Aghajanian
What sets you apart from other dentists in the area?
What sets me apart from other dentists in my area (Glendale, CA) is the high level of customer service and highest quality of care. I find many patients that have visited other dental offices express that they never got the time and care that we provide
What is special about your dental office in Glendale?
My employees and I are what make our dental office in Glendale special. I don’t think there is a substitute for great attitudes and the willingness to put the time in with our patients to achieve the type of care and results that everyone likes to experience. My goal is to improve the quality of the lives of my patients in the capacity that I am capable of.
What would you consider your specialty procedure?
My specialty would be in full-mouth complex dental reconstructions. I enjoy the challenge and thrive with these types of cases.
Which areas of dentistry do you love the most?
What I enjoy the most is implant dentistry. I have a big passion for art and surgery. I get great satisfaction by being able to rehabilitate the ability of my patients to live a normal life full of confidence and dignity, so they don’t have to worry about their smile or discomfort associated with eating their next meal.
What made you decide to become a dentist?
As a young teenager and all throughout high school I excelled in mathematics and the sciences, I also had a talent for music and constructing things by hand. Most of all, I had a great desire to be helpful to others in all aspects of life. I felt that dentistry would encompass all of these qualities and provide me with a lifestyle where I could thrive as a productive member of my community.
“My philosophy for happiness in life can be summed up by one word: balance”

The long-term goal for my dental office in Glendale is the same as the goal we try to achieve every day of the week, which is to provide the best dental care and experience to my patients as possible.

Being a dentist fulfills my intellectual needs for stimulation. There is never a boring day. Each day and each patient presents its new set of challenges which is what keeps me engaged and enthusiastic about my career.

My dental philosophy is an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. So, it is important to be proactive in your dental care to prevent bigger problems down the line.
What do you think you can contribute to the dentistry profession?
I can contribute to the integrity of my profession by running a practice based on a good work ethic, high moral values and excellence in dentistry.
