Melody ~ RDA (Registered Dental Assistant)
Born in Iran of Armenian descent, I graduated university with a bachelor’s degree in Photography before moving to London. After meeting my husband, I moved to New Jersey and entered the field of dentistry as an assistant shortly after. Now as an RDA in the field for over 9 years, I truly take pleasure in interacting with and caring for patients. Most all I enjoy the artistic and creative aspect of Dr. Cathy’s work which I find to be very rewarding. I enjoy the arts, traveling, nature and exercise.
