Dr. Kinoian was recently selected by a vote of his peers, for the 6th consecutive year, to be included in the listings of topDentists. TopDentistsTM listings cannot be purchased and are considered a singular honor.
Dr. Kinoian is an active member of the American Association of Orthodontists, the Mid-Atlantic Society of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, the New Jersey Dental Association and the Bergen County Dental Association. He is licensed by the State Board of Dentistry in New Jersey and is proud to be recognized as a “Specialist in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics” by New Jersey Specialty Permit #3727.
Additionally, Dr. Kinoian is an active member of the Armenian American Health Professionals Organization where he acts as their unofficial photographer and has given several lectures on orthodontics including at their 2009 World Congress. He has been on the Board of Directors for over ten years for the Armenian Center at Columbia University.
Dr. Kinoian is widowed and after his wife’s passing, from an almost 10 year struggle with breast cancer, he established The MaryAnn Kinoian Memorial Scholarship Fund. In each Paramus middle school and elementary school and at the Hovnanian School in New Milford, awards and scholarship monies are given for outstanding achievement in Art and in Music. The fund has given over $10,000 to local children to encourage their artistic pursuits.
“Spending time getting to know our patients and their families over the course of their treatments and helping people live healthier, happier lives with the confidence of a straighter, more attractive smile is why I’ve enjoyed every day of almost 25 years as an orthodontist.”
