Dr. Nicole earned her Bachelor of Arts in Integrative Biology from UC Berkeley in 1994. She spent nine months in Costa Rica doing volunteer work in rural areas and studying at the University of Costa Rica. That’s where she became fluent in Spanish!
In addition to being a great orthodontist, Dr. Nicole is an amazing cook. A native of Fresno, she can often be found cooking for her large Armenian/Italian family. We like to joke that she is the “Martha Stewart” of the office.
Family is really important to her and she’s very involved with her husband and two boys. Soccer is big in their household. Her husband, Toufik, used to play professional soccer. Back in the day, Dr. Nicole was pretty good at soccer, too!
Dr. Nicole received her dental and orthodontic degrees from the University of the Pacific and then joined the practice in 1999.
