At Universal City Dental Center, Dr. Jirair Gasparian and his team perform a variety of procedures intended to protect patients' teeth and gums. Periodic checkups both detect and treat signs of trouble before they become serious complications, but when action is required to correct a problem, the practice offers surgical as well as noninvasive options.

Architect. Stationer. Magic maker. Ola wears many hats, each more beautiful than the last. After she left a career designing buildings, Ola made her first venture into the world of high-end events with a luxury paper-printing business. Ijorere The Invitation (derived from Yoruba words for "grand day") transitioned into Ijorere Atelier, the elegant loft space she rents out for baby and bridal showers, offsite meetings, meet and greet discussions, birthday parties, small weddings, corporate events, and other upscale happenings.
