Dr. Nalbandian (who also goes by “Dr. Mark”) is a specialist in the field of Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics. He was born and raised in Toronto, in fact, not too far from our office. After graduating with a degree in Chemistry, he decided to pursue his dental degree from the prestigious Ivy League school, Columbia University in the City of New York.
He later went on to earn his Certificate in Orthodontics from Howard University in Washington, D.C. There he received awards for earning the highest grade point average in his graduating class and for his superior clinical performance. Upon graduation, he joined Howard University on a part-time basis in the position of Assistant Professor in the Department of Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics while at the same time, working in private practice in Virginia and Maryland.
Shortly after, he was appointed Co-Clinic Director of the Orthodontic Department. While on the faculty at Howard University, Dr. Nalbandian maintained an active interest in research which included helping publish a chapter in a scientific textbook, “Dental Clinics of North America.”
Dr. Nalbandian is excited to open his orthodontic practice in Toronto close to where he was raised and went to school. His hard work ethic and constant demand of excellence from himself will ensure that he provides the best orthodontic care to his patients from Scarborough, North York, Markham, and the surrounding Toronto area!
Outside of Orthodontics, Dr. Nalbandian enjoys travelling (both locally and abroad), athletics and reading. Dr. Nalbandian also enjoys taking part in charitable events. Most memorable were two trips to Armenia where he provided comprehensive dental care to orphans who otherwise had no access to dental care.
