A California native, Dr. Boyajian completed his undergraduate studies at USC, and today he teaches there as part-time faculty in USC’s Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry. Dr. Boyajian’s communication skills have helped patients and dental students embrace the picture of what true oral health looks like and clearly outlines the path to achieve it.
In many ways, Dr. Boyajian is a dental artist. His passion for art started long before he began his dental practice, and is something he has carried into his dentistry. Both a sculptor and painter, he creates functional dental restorations that are pleasing to the eye. In fact, one of the goals outside of function is to make your smile as aesthetic as possible.
Dr. Boyajian is a member of several prestigious dental organizations, including the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, where he received his fellowship in Implantology.
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.
