Meet Our Paramus Dental Staff
Contact our office in Paramus to learn more about our staff or to schedule a visit.
Office Assistant & Insurance Specialist
Geita is the first smiling face you see as you walk through our doors. She has been with Dr. Kinoian since 2005 and her main position is making sure everything runs smoothly at the front reception desk. She does a bit of everything but is our insurance expert and she can answer all your scheduling and financial questions. She says “I truly enjoy getting to know our patients and their parents so that they feel like they are part of our family.”
Geita and her husband, Sami, have 3 beautiful children: Luke, Mark and Rachel and she loves spending time with them and their friends. If you are lucky you may get a taste of her spectacular cooking – especially her Middle Eastern treats!
Clinical Chairside Assistant
Carmen is fluent in Spanish and loves speaking in her native language with many of our patients. She has been working with Dr. Kinoian for over 10 years – starting soon after Dr. Kinoian finished her orthodontic treatment!
Carmen’s main job is making sure that everything runs smoothly for our patients while they are being seen with Dr. Kinoian. She says that her favorite thing about orthodontics is working with the patients to achieve their perfect smile and that she loves to see the changes in patients as they go through treatment. “It’s fun to see their excitement and their new smile when they finish.”
Outside of our office, Carmen keeps busy with her 2 children, Samantha and Matthias. When we’re lucky, she brings them in to visit.
Front Desk Assistant
Helen enjoys her position at the front desk because she gets to know all the patients and their families. She says, “Coming to work is fun and I like socializing and making everyone feel comfortable. I love the amazement and delight on patients faces when they get their braces off and they see their new beautiful smile for the first time. ”
Helen enjoys speaking Armenian with our Armenian patients and her decades of involvement with that community means that she has surprising connections with many families both nearby and in New England.
She loves seeing the youngest patients grow into mature young adults and especially enjoys when many of them call her “Grandma.”
Outside of our office, she may be found at the gym 6 days a week, and she is a master eBay where you might find her selling antique treasures. She has run her own antiques business for over 50 years and had her own store in Hackensack for 25 of those.
Oh, by the way, did we mention that Helen is Dr. Kinoian’s mom!
