Why dentistry?

My brother Armen influenced my decision to switch my career from finance to dentistry and I couldn’t be happier. Dentistry gives me a chance to positively transform my patients’ lives through creative solutions. To experience with my patients the increase in confidence at the end of treatment is very satisfying and what motivates me every day.

  • D.D.S. at Indiana University School of Dentistry
  • B.S. in Finance at Brigham Young University
You might be surprised that I…
  • Worked in investment banking before dentistry
  • Have lived in 4 countries and 8 cities
  • Ran 5 half-marathons
  • Knit and crochet

Why dentistry?

Growing up, I always knew I wanted to be a doctor. I thought I wanted to be an OB/GYN since my mother was a labor and delivery nurse. But, after speaking with one of the OB/GYNs, he told me how much his wife, a pediatric dentist, enjoyed her career, so I decided to check it out. I shadowed her a few times and I was sold. Being able to actually spend quality time with patients and create valuable relationships with them while helping them grow past their fears is one of the most fulfilling things about this career. I am so glad I chose dentistry and after nearly 20 years in practice, I still encourage young people to do the same.

Armen Balasanyan, D.D.S

Why dentistry?

Growing up in Armenia, I had a traumatic dental experience that I carried throughout my childhood. When I came to the US, our family dentist went above and beyond to make me comfortable. That experience and my relationship with him became the stepping stone for my career in dentistry. From that point on, I wanted to become a dentist in order to provide similar experiences for all my patients.

  • D.D.S. at Indiana University School of Dentistry
  • B.S. at University of Utah
You might be surprised that I…
  • Do woodworking and make furniture
  • Love driving on the country roads of Union County
  • Am a history geek
  • Have a weekly ritual with my grill
