Meet the Team

Maylin Yeng – Insurance Coordinator

I can truly say that I look forward to coming to work everyday. I’ve been in the dental profession for 16 years and have worked at Ararat Dental since the summer of 2012. Working for Dr. Ani allows me to express what I love most, helping patients with their insurance questions making them feel at ease knowing they’re taken care of by me.
In my free time, you will find me in the kitchen, as cooking is my true passion. During the summer months, I enjoy being with my grand daughter.
Contact me at if you have any financial or insurance questions.
You can count on me to help!

Ani Youssoufian – Dental Assistant/Reception

I was excited to help my mom this summer at her dental practice. I was able learn and gain experience in both front office responsibilities as well as being a dental assistant. The dental industry allows me to express my desire for helping people through dental technologies and impacting people’s lives by delivering healthy smiles.
During the school year you can find me at the practice on Saturdays. My first hand experience has helped me decide that I will be following in my mom’s footsteps. This would make me the fourth generation of dentists in our family, keeping our family business thriving and helping patients for years to come.

Gehan Resk – Dental Assistant

I have completed 9 months of the Dental Assisting Program at Drake College. In 2009 I obtained a degree as a certified dental assistant. Since then, for 9 years, I have been assisting Dr. Ani and I feel at home and at ease at Ararat Dental.
On my time off I love to cook and take care of my family.

Diana Rivera – Dental Assistant

I was certified as a dental assistant in 2012 and recently joined the Ararat Dental team. This is a great practice to work for and I am blessed to be part of such an amazing family. At Ararat Dental I feel like I make a difference each day taking care of patients.
When I’m home, I keep myself busy with my 5 year old daughter who is the joy of my life!

Rachel Cornier – Scheduling Coordinator

I’ve rejoined the Ararat Dental team. What I enjoy most about my position is greeting our patients at the front desk and helping them feel comfortable and welcome. I enjoy attending to the needs of each patient letting them know that they’re in helpful and safe hands with me. I absolutely love coming to work every day and seeing everyone’s smile.
