Such kind staff and Dr. A is awesome. I waited until my 30's to start my Invisalign journey and the best decision was choosing this place. I feel... like at each appointment my teeth are very carefully examined and my treatment plan evolves as needed to meet my outcome goal. I've always been really apprehensive about any kind of dental work, I've had some bad experiences in the past and can be pretty skeptical or worried about trying new things. It's been about a year into my treatment and the only reason I can say I'm a lot more relaxed now is because I fully trust everyone in this office. Can't wait until my final result is reached. Loving how much progress my teeth have made already. My only regret is not doing it sooner!read more

Just completed treatment and could not be more satisfied. Dr. Akhavan is a gem. His approach to orthodontics is just what I needed--honesty mixed... with a childlike enthusiasm for the art of orthodontics. He delivered everything he promised. Of note also is the staff. All of the ladies, from the front desk to the back of the house, are wonderful at what they do. Thank you, Willa, for helping me start this process and for your kindness and warmth. Thank you, Bri, for being the last staff member that helped complete my smile by putting in my permanent retainers and fitting me for my life long, over night retainers. Thank you to every single staff member that walked a mile with me in this journey. You are all in my heart. A word to seniors wanting to fix teeth they've always hated: JUST DO IT and DO IT WITH Pap and Tap.read more

Dr. Akhavan and the whole staff are amazing! Due to the nature of my career, I’m always traveling & the staff alway make accommodations for me which... I’m super grateful for. I recommended my husband to come here and now he’s getting treatment here. My daughter wants to (and will) come here once it’s time for her to get braces. The game room is a plus :).read more

I chose this place because of the reviews and I’m glad I did. I only saw Dr A. (Not sure the other 2 still own the biz). I might have been the... oldest patient at 53, until I referred my wife! EVERYONE is amazing, professional, gentle and sincerely nice. Everyone is busy and move around the office like a well oiled machine. They work around my schedule as much as possible and communication is A+. The office is clean, inviting and the environment feels comfy. For future employees; they are patient with training the newer ones and help one another without pause. No matter what age you are, I recommend this team. Sincerely, Leshia 🙂read more
