What Do You Like to Do?
Dr. Mariam and her husband, our own Dr. Ken Malament, have a young son named Vladimer that keeps them very happy and busy. She used to play the piano as a child and eventually stopped when she started dental school, but she picked it up again when her son began learning music. Dr. Mariam comes from a diversified background—she has lived and three countries and speaks four languages! Because her family is spread across both the U.S. and Europe, she often travels over the holidays to spend time with everyone. Back at home, she likes to ski and watch her husband and son play tennis.
