Meet Dr. Yeghiasarian
My name is Dr. Lara Veghiasarian. I was born and raised in the Middle East, in an Armenian Christian Orthodox family. My family and I immigrated to the U.S. in my early teens and settled on the east coast region of this beautiful country. After completing my undergraduate degree at George Washington University, and a master’s degree in Medical College of Virginia, I attended dental school at Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine. Upon graduating, I enjoyed the opportunity to serve in the United States Army, as an Active Duty general dentist. I completed a one-year Advanced Education in General Dentistry; was assigned to, and deployed with, 2nd Brigade/4th ID to Iraq (2008- 2009) ; and served a hardship tour in Sinai, Egypt (2013-14). I completed my last Active Duty assignment at USMA West Point (2014-2018) whereupon I started and graduated from the endodontics program at Dental College of Georgia (2018-2020). Afterwards I worked for over 2 years in Boston, MA, as an associate endodontist. To be close to my immediate family I moved to Cape Girardeau, MO, and I am proud to say that I am very happy to have joined the practice of Dr. Blattner Endodontics Care. I am highly motivated to practice evidence-based dentistry and provide the best care for my patients.
