Meet the Doctor

Dr. Naren Chelian (aka Dr.C) was born in India and moved to the U.S. when he was 8 where he then grew up in grew up in San Diego, CA. Dr.C attended UCSD for his under graduate education. Then moved onto UCLA for doctorate education, and completed orthodontic residency at UNLV. He is still very involved as the alumni president of the UNLV orthodontic residency program.

Dr.C really enjoys his work and considers his office his hang-out area as much as him home. He wanted to make note that his comment about his love for his work is not a marketing gimmick, and even “double dog dares you ” to come visit him at his office.

Dr.C is not only dedicated to his work by being at his office but is even very involved with his patients on a more personal level. He is a huge sponsor of many of his patients’ schools, sports teams and helps with other local fundraising. He also donates monthly to a long list of other local, national and international charities and academic programs.

Some of those charities include St. Jude Child fund, American Cancer Society, Salvation Army, UNICEF, No Kid Hungry, American Diabetes Association, American Heart Association, Wikimedia, USO, ASPCA, Smile Train, Opportunity Village, UCLA, UCSD, UNLV, Habitat for Humanity, and Project 150. We hope to be able to provide our readers with more follow-up stories on some of these charities to help support and spread more awareness.
