Principal / Founder
Malika Azargoon, a graduate of George Washington University, has been a professional in the dental industry for nearly 15 years. With initial plans to pursue a career in dentistry, life changed direction with a growing family and she found herself redirecting her passion and energy for the dental industry by seeking opportunities to grow existing dental practices. Excelling as a dental assistant, she quickly grew her role in the practices she worked in and ultimately became a business manager in one of the top dental practices in the DC Metro area. As the demand for Malika’s expertise grew, Zar Dental Consulting was developed and is now a successful dental consulting firm, serving over 90 different practices in the DC Metro area and surrounding Mid-Atlantic region.
Malika’s commitment to results-driven best practices is the platform she has built her business and team around. Zar Dental Consulting is client focused - both for single office and multi-office practices. Her broad range of experience allows her to develop strategies and infrastructure support for each unique client setting; this is achieved with the expertise and knowledge base of a national firm but with the benefit of local hands-on support. An avid runner, Malika uses her marathon training as an analogy for her business - commit to the race, stay determined, and cross the finish line. Zar Dental Consulting navigates the industry and drives client success.
