Meet Dr. Tourian

Dr. Tourian is highly regarded by his patients and peers for his dental skills and aesthetic appreciation. His philosophy is based upon recognizing that each patient has individual needs and expectations. He ensures that each patient will approach their treatment plan with a full understanding of the procedures, a full understanding of options available and a realistic expectation of their results.

Dr. Tourian built this practice in 2003 from scratch. He worked as an associate dentist at a clinic in Tierrasanta during the day, and worked long into the night at his new practice. At that time, he could count on one hand the number of patients he had. His success has since soared and his patient base has grown immensely. Thanks to our patients kind referrals of their loved ones and friends, we run this practice strictly by word of mouth, we do not advertise and we are not listed in the yellow pages.
