As a teenager, Dr. Stacie Calian worked as an assistant in several dentists’ offices, which inspired her to later work as a dental hygienist and earn two masters degrees from Columbia University. From there, she left the practice to join academia, but she couldn’t resist the siren song of the dentist’s drill; soon after, she received a doctoral degree from Georgetown University School of Dentistry and amassed more than 18 years of clinical experience. Now, at her office, Dr. Calian and her team of smile stylists use a variety of high-tech instruments—from digital x-rays to Zoom! whitening lights and lasers that penetrate teeth without the heat, vibration, and pressure of the typical tiny chainsaws. Within a spa-like atmosphere, the staff performs services including Invisalign, Lumineers, and dental implants—procedures Dr. Calian is always looking to improve by furthering her training through continuing education.
