As one of our registered dental assistants, I work with Dr. Akavan . She is a great teacher and she takes pride in her work. It's fun to work for a female doctor who is smart and educated in this field. We have fun contests and cool office shirts, and you can always be sure we are treating you like family. I love to talk with our patients and see the transformation of their smiles.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending quality time with my husband and our children, traveling, shopping, and racing cars!

Welcome to our office! I am the financial coordinator and I will help you with all of your financial needs. I truly enjoy working with Dr. Akavan and am privileged to work with such an awesome group of girls. Our practice is a lot of fun! There are a lot of fun giveaways here in the office and on our Facebook fan page!

At home I live with my husband, Chip and my dog, Ragoo. I love to spend time with family and friends.

I am a registered dental assistant here at Dr. Akavan’s office. I have been working with Dr. Akavan for 8 years. I love coming into the office and treating our patients like one big happy family. I have learned a lot from Dr. Akavan, and seeing our patients leave our office with a smile makes my days here amazing. Here at Dr. Akavan’s office the patient always comes first.

When I am not in the office I spend my time with my husband, Al. We are expecting twins so my days will be filled with lots of more love and happiness.


Rocio Castellanos

As a registered dental assistant, I explain all procedures to our patients and make sure to answer any questions they may have. I love watching the children grow and seeing the amazing results when they finish treatment. I am excited that I get to work with Dr. Akavan. She is a very knowledgeable orthodontist.

I love to spend time with my family and working out when I am out of the office. I also love to try new vegetarian dishes every chance I get.



Our Tarzana Orthodontic office caters to patients in the San Fernando Valley, Encino, Woodland Hills, and Reseda neighborhoods.
