Dr. Jason Keledjian, DDS
A Fresno native, Dr. Keledjian graduated from the University of California Davis and earned his dental degree from the University of California, San Francisco. While at UCSF, he received multiple clinical excellence awards as well as an ethics and professionalism award. Upon returning to the valley, Dr. Keledjian completed a one-year postgraduate residency at Fresno’s University Medical Center and Veteran’s Administration Hospital. There he worked on medically compromised patients, cases of varying degrees of anesthesia, advanced dental procedures, hospital dentistry, and emergency techniques.
Dr. Keledjian is very active in the community, participating with local groups and Christian medical missions such as the non-profit Healthy Smile Mobile Dental Foundation, a local non-profit organization serving children without access to dental services throughout San Joaquin Valley. As a member of Madera Kiwanis, he is active in helping with events, including the Madera Fair Livestock Auction, Old Timers Parade, and Candlelight Wine Stroll. And as an office, they participated in events such as Kid’s Day, which helped raise money for Children’s Hospital Central California and Relay-For-Life with an overnight booth in Lions Town and Country Park. In 2012, he became president of the Fresno Madera Dental Society, which is the local component of the American Dental Association.
Dr. Keledjian has devoted himself to clinical excellence and education, taking advanced training and education in several dental fields, including dental implants, sleep apnea, Invisalign®, and cosmetic dentistry. He has also completed an aesthetic residency and is currently a member of several study clubs to further his education.
Although a Fresno native, in 2002 I began my dental career In Santa Clarita, CA. After several years working with the same Dr. and team, my husband and I decided it was time to move closer to family. We found ourselves in the foothills of Clovis one property from my parent's ranch; I guess we meant it when we said “closer to family”! Collectively we have 6 children and enjoy spending time together riding horses and having family BBQs. I feel so grateful to have become a part of Dr. Keledjian’s practice and his amazing team. I love seeing the relationships that have been built here throughout the years with patients and with one another. So happy my path lead me to Keledjian Dental!
Registered Dental Hygienist
My name is Michele Kaufmann. I have been brightening smiles since 2001 when I graduated from the Dental Hygiene program at San Joaquin Valley College in Visalia. I have worked in many dental offices over the years but none as exceptional as Keledjian Dental. Together we are a great team because we share the same goals and commitment to our patient's oral care. The love we have for our patients shows in our chairside manner. The love we have working with each other is evident by the positive, uplifting, and jovial office vibe.
I have worked in the dental field since 1998 and have to say I am truly blessed to be a part of this amazing team with Keledjian Dental. I am excited to see the continued growth in our office that I call home. Every day, I look forward to welcoming our patients that have been with us for years as well as the patients who have just begun their relationship with us.
Although I was born in Idaho, I was raised in Madera. I have 2 amazing children, AJ and Jazmine. I am #3 of 5 siblings and am the only girl!!! Needless to say, I absolutely adore my brothers. In my spare time, I love to hang out with family and friend’s barbequing or sitting by a bonfire.
Fun Fact: I love to sing in my car because I have a voice only a mother could love. So if you hear me singing away in the office don’t mind me, just sing along!
I celebrated my 10th anniversary with Keledjian Dental on April 1, 2021. I love the family atmosphere at our office. My favorite part of my job is greeting the patients as they enter our practice through the front door as I consider them to be a part of our dental family! My favorite hobby is spending time with my family and friends and also traveling. I have two amazing daughters, Andrea and Alexandra “Alex”. They have blessed me with four incredible grandchildren, Mia, Blake, Gabriella, and Isabella.
