After graduating from dental hygiene school and receiving a master's degree in dental hygiene education and public health from Columbia University, Dr. Calian went on to teach dental hygiene while working toward her PhD in education. Yet her unyielding desire to be a dentist prompted her to refocus her career trajectory and apply to dental school.
Dr. Calian can proudly say that she is a graduate of Georgetown University Dental School and has been practicing for more than two decades. With a wealth of clinical experience and an extensive background in dentistry (she had been the dental director of one of the largest New York-based insurance firms), Dr. Calian demonstrates a vast knowledge of the most advanced technologies within the dental field.
Today, Dr. Calian is the owner and director of Westchester Smile Design, with two locations in Mount Kisco and Yonkers, New York. In 2010, she was recognized as one of the "Best Dentists In Westchester" by Westchester Magazine.
Dr. Calian is wholeheartedly committed to patient comfort and satisfaction and believes that one of the most important attributes of a cosmetic dentist is that they are a good listener. "Once you listen, you can work as a team to create the best and most youthful appearance," she says.
