Dr. Armen Akopian and his family emigrated from Germany to New York when he was very young. During those formidable years, his parents, who are both professionals in health care, instilled a hard work ethic and strong moral values that led him to be interested in health care. Growing up he always had a predisposition to figuring out how things worked and fixing things around the house that were broken. This would prove to come in handy later on in life.
Receiving a full scholarship to New York University’s College of Arts and Sciences program, Dr. Armen decided to pursue his bachelor’s degree in psychology with a minor in chemistry and to be enrolled in the pre-health track. During this time he discovered dentistry thru volunteering at a private dental office and at NYUs clinic. Realizing he could combine his passion with health care and his desire to restore broken things, he applied to dental school that year.
He got into his top choice at the prestigious NYU College of Dentistry where he was a member of the Aesthetics Honors program; a small group of seniors in each year, who are trained by some of the top cosmetic dentists in the NY and tri state area. After dental school, he attended a year long general practice residency at Mount Sinai’s affiliate Queens Hospital Center, honing his skills in all aspects of general dentistry.
Dr. Armen is a firm believer in continuing education and has taken hundreds of hours of courses to offer his patients the latest and safest treatments in full mouth reconstruction, cosmetic, and implant dentistry. He treats the office as his second home (although he spends more time there then his actual home) and believes everyone should feel welcome, comfortable, and confident that they will be taken care of like family there.
