Dr. Nina Mirzayan has been practicing dentistry in the Las Vegas Valley since 2003. A Southern California native, she graduated from the Loma Linda University School of Dentistry, an institution that prides itself on advancing professional ethics and total health management. To bolster her training, she completed a General Practice Residency (GPR) at The University of Nevada School of Medicine.
Dr. Nina has experience in many types of dentistry, including cosmetics, implants, orthodontics and oral surgery. She has chosen to focus her work on children, a patient base on which she feels she can have the most influence.
“I feel honored that parents entrust their children to me,” says Dr. Nina. “By making a child’s first experience at the dentist painless and fun, I can instill good oral hygiene habits at an early age. Something this simple can make all the difference later in life.”
Among her credentials is an oral conscious sedation license, which allows her to calm even the most frightened child.
Dr. Nina makes an impact in her local community as well as on the other side of the world. She has traveled twice to Armenia to provide volunteer dental care to orphans in this historic land.
For her commitment to excellence, Dr. Nina has been recognized as one of Las Vegas’ “Top Dentists” by Desert Companion Magazine every year since 2015. She regularly appears at schools and on TV, educating kids and parents alike with her fun and practical tips on dentistry.
Dr. Samer Faranesh is a Las Vegas native and revered ping pong champion. Following Bishop Gorman High School he stayed in Nevada to attend the University of Nevada, Reno. His passion for art and science blended perfectly in dentistry, so he enrolled at the University of Nevada School of Dentistry in 2010. He graduated dental school with highest honors before undergoing an additional two and a half years of specialty training in orthodontics at the University of Colorado.
“From an early age I knew I wanted to be an Orthodontist. Being self-conscious of my smile as a young man I understood how a confident smile can positively impact one’s life. I love working each day helping transform lives the same way mine was many years ago.”
Following residency Dr. Faranesh practiced in Denver, Colorado for 3.5 years before moving back to Las Vegas. His motivation for returning home was to be close to family, friends, and the community that gave him so much. In his free time you can catch him listening to his audiobooks, working on his fitness, or playing Master Chef in the kitchen.
