 Goshgarian Orthodontics: Team Bio’s



“My brother and sister had braces by Dr. Goshgarian and I always appreciated how he made them feel as patients. When there was an opportunity to lend my expertise as an Insurance Specialist to this organization, I jumped at the chance! I’ve been on board with Goshgarian Orthodontics since July 2015, and I am excited to continue doing what I love and working with finances at Goshgarian Orthodontics. It is fun getting to know our patients and their families and helping them find appointments that work with their schedules, and fee plans that work with their budgets. During my free time I enjoy cooking, watching movies and spending time with my husband and family. Dr. Goshgarian has been great to me and I can’t wait for our patients to enjoy the same experience!”

“I feel fortunate to say I have over 20 years of experience as a Certified Orthodontic Assistant. Having experienced braces first hand as well as going through it with my daughter, I know how having a great smile can increase a child or an adult’s self-esteem. I never get tired of seeing that transformation take place. Over the years, I’ve learned that creating relationships with our patients and getting to know their families is definitely my favorite part of the job. We strive to make orthodontics fun and exciting for everyone who walks through our doors. Working with Dr. Goshgarian and our team is truly a great experience. Everyone has a warm personality and is incredibly eager to work together as a team. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, reading and spending time with my family and friends. I have been married for 22 years to my husband Gary. We have two wonderful children, Christian and Tayler, who are both serving in the United States Navy along with their Father. I’m a very proud mom and wife!”

“I graduated from SIUC in 2003 with a Dental Technology major and have been working in orthodontics ever since. As Dr. Goshgarian’s Treatment Coordinator, I love having the opportunity to meet with all of our new patients and find out how our team can help them achieve the smile they have always wanted. While away from the office I enjoy going to concerts and hanging out in the great outdoors with my husband, daughter, and our dog Charlie. I also love to cheer on the Bears, Blackhawks, and Cubbies (all with my cat Wrigley hanging by my side.)”

“Making one person smile can change the world. Maybe not the whole world, but their world”… I’m happy to bring my smile to the Goshgarian Orthodontics team. After working in cosmetics and customer service for the last 12+ years, I’m very excited for this new journey.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family. I am very blessed with two little boys who ALWAYS keep me on my toes. My family and I are die-hard Dallas Cowboy fans, so every Sunday during football season is “Sunday Fun-day” and we are together cheering them on (with the exception of my oldest son who is a Packers fan… he’s a traitor!!).
