Behazin Torkian, DMD
"Seemingly small things have the power to make a large difference in the world."
"Growing up, I wanted to be many things; a pharmacist, a musician, an engineer. But once I decided to become a dentist, everything else fell into place. I have the ability to combine the art of playing musical instruments with the artistic side of dentistry. I am passionate about creating healthy and beautiful smiles that will last a lifetime. From the moment you walk through the door, I want to make sure you enjoy your time, and I will provide you with the best quality of care."
