Meet Our Staff


Claudia M.

Claudia takes great pride in working side-by-side with Dr. Nowzari and the rest of the staff to offer patients the best possible service. She is certified in CPR, and a certified Notary. She makes her home in Montebello with her husband and 3 beautiful children.


Elsy T.

From answering questions and explaining procedures in consultation, to preparing for surgery, and assisting the surgeons, Elsy is a master of details in the highly demanding area of Implant Dentistry. She is married and lives in Montebello. Having raised 5 wonderful children and now enjoying her 6 grandkids, it seems Elsy revels in keeping on her toes, here at the office and at home!


Sharlene GC

Registered Dental Hygienist

Sharlene very much enjoys caring for and educating patients. She loves seeing positive results of this collaboration! With a BS Degree and RDH Certification from USC, Sharlene returned to her alma mater as a clinical instructor of Dental Hygiene for 10 years. She and her husband Richard make their home in Irvine. Sharlene stays sharp and happy through exercise, traveling, and cooking (although she claims "not very well" for the cooking!)


Kathy M.

Registered Dental Hygienist

Kathy loves working as member of the team to provide excellent dental care to the community. She received her BS in Dental Hygiene from University of Southern California, and received her license to practice as an RDH in 1981. Kathy stays fit by swimming, walking and practicing yoga. She is an avid fan of movies and plays, enjoys going to concerts, and is a student of Metaphysics.


Armineh Y.

Helping people to have healthy mouths and "happy teeth" delights Armineh. She is another proud USC grad, with a Bachelor of Science and RDH degree from the school where Dr. Levine served on faculty, and Dr. Nowzari served as Director. She and her husband live in Glendale with a "spoiled little dog." Arf!


Deborah Z.

Registered Dental Hygienist

Deborah truly understands that Dental health and overall health affect each other. So it's no wonder that she relishes her work helping others stay healthy in "this beautiful Life" about which she is so passionate. Deborah received her RDH certification from USC, and she participates regularly in Continuing Education programs both at USC and at American Dental Association annual sessions. She has a big Persian family here in L.A., with four brothers and two sisters. Also, as an avid reader, Deborah is always looking for recommendations about good books you have read.
