Dr. Ariana is dedicated to providing excellent, high quality dental care. Born in Tulsa, he has lived in several other places including Houston, Iowa City, Chicago, (and even a year in Norway!), and has come home to Tulsa where he has been practicing since 2006.
Dr. Ariana graduated valedictorian of his class at the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry, and has brought that dedication to learning to his practice of dentistry, continually attending classes to bring the latest advances to his patients. His undergraduate degree is from the University of Iowa where he excelled in honors biology courses and scientific research. If the Sooners play the Hawkeyes in a football game, he won’t know who to cheer for!
Dr. Ariana’s gentle touch and warm personality allow his patients to have stress-free dental visits. In deciding what is best for his patients, he recommends the same treatment as he would for his own family.
A native of Oklahoma City, Dr. Avery loves to help patients. She attended the University of Oklahoma for undergrad, graduating Summa Cum Laude with a double major in History and Spanish. She speaks Spanish and enjoyed study abroad experiences in Mexico, Spain and Chile while in college. Dr. Avery continued her education at the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry where she graduated in the top 10% of her class in 2006.
After dental school graduation, Dr. Avery completed a General Practice Residency at Tufts University in Boston, focusing on the treatment of patients with special needs and complex medical issues.
Dr. Avery believes the best part of dentistry is getting to truly know her patients, and she prides herself on the fact that many of her patients actually have fun in the dental chair!
Both Dr. Ariana and Dr. Avery have trained with the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, and one of their favorite aspects of dentistry is providing safe sedation for patients who experience anxiety in the dental chair. They are both members of the American Dental Association, the Tulsa County Dental Society, and the Academy of General Dentistry.
When they are not treating patients, they enjoy travel, learning to salsa dance and riding their bikes through the rolling hills of Tulsa.
