Meet Dr. Koshgerian

Dr. Koshgerian is passionate about maintaining an oral surgery practice that is first and foremost about patients: providing top-notch care while educating patients upfront so that they are knowledgeable about their procedures.

Dr. Koshgerian would like his patients to know that at The Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Specialists of San Diego, their voices are heard. We go above and beyond to present the very best personalized options for treatment and provide all the information necessary so that patients feel confident about making the best decision for their oral health.

Education and Residency

Dr. Koshgerian began his formal education at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee, earning scholastic and athletic recognition as a member of the men’s soccer team, and earning a degree in Political Science with minors in Spanish and History.

Dr. Koshgerian earned his MD in 2012 and completed his general surgery training and specialty training in oral and maxillofacial surgery in 2015. Once his residency was completed, Dr. Koshgerian continued his pursuit of knowledge and surgical skill in Los Angeles at Kaiser Permanente where he joined the surgical team to perform complex corrective jaw surgeries, treat pathologic conditions of the jaws, and repair defects resulting from facial trauma. Today, Dr. Koshgerian is a Fellow at Kaiser Permanente in Los Angeles, in orthognathic surgery.
