Rebecca Hakhamian

Registered Dental Hygienist

Rebecca is a proud graduate of the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC, where she received her Bachelors of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene. She was born and raised in Los Angeles, California where she followed her family’s footsteps within the field of dentistry. Her father is a dentist as well as two older brothers whom are also USC alumni. She grew up in a dental office and found her passion for excellent patient care from a young age. For Rebecca, education and the preventative aspect of dentistry are the most intriguing and most important in her practice. She loves to keep up with the latest technology and research to provide her patients with the utmost care. Outside of work she loves to travel and cook.  She’s often in the kitchen learning family recipes that have been passed down for generations from her mother. As a great professional with philosophies in line with our other USC-trained providers, she is a great addition to our team!
