Our Core
Values

Next Level
Finish

A great finish represents the best result for the patient ...
While we view it as the perfect alignment of teeth, we believe a greater finish is one that overwhelms the patient with absolute joy. Everyone deserves to have the best smile possible and every clinical action we take should be with a great finish in mind.

Next Level
Hospitality

Each person who walks through our doors is a valued and highly-anticipated guest, not a number ...
As we strive to treat our patients with respect in an environment that feels positive and inclusive, something magical happens - we break down barriers and open up new possibilities not just for our patients, but for ourselves also.

Our Core
Values

Next Level
Communication

Successful relationships are oftentimes defined by the success of their communication ...
Clarity and kindness are characteristics that usher in the desire to listen with the intent to understand, rather than respond. When we do so with our patients and each other, we place the individual first and in turn, foster a successful relationship.

Next Level
Accountability

In any given hour of any given day, difficult situations may arise. In that moment, doing the right thing may seem hard or even impossible ...
However, as we assess the situation, understand it, own it, and act decisively, our actions will speak louder than words ever could and trust will be fortified for the future.

Their staff is very friendly and accommodating. We were very happy with the results and I will be sending my 2nd child there once it is time. They... also worked with us for payment and did NOT make us have to come in or pay cash like another local orthodontist. Thank you again!read more

Next Level Orthodontics has created a family-like atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and professional. I highly recommend this practice for your... braces or Invisalign journey.I have just finished the Invisalign process and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. I discussed my initial goals with Dr. A during my consultation and throughout the process, Dr. A continued to addressed any questions/concerns I had. I am happy to say that he has exceeded those goals and because of that I have a beautiful smile. In addition, he was very accommodating during the process (I may have misplaced some of my aligner trays).I would also like to give a shout-out to my orthodontic technician, Sarah. She is very friendly and always has a positive attitude. She makes an effort to get to know her patients and is very relatable. She always did an amazing job placing my attachments and walking me through the process!A few additional positives about the practice is that they work with you to create the most appropriate payment plan. In addition, if you ever contact the practice, they are always quick to respond to you.My only complaint would be their hours of operation. They are closed every Friday and are only open until 5:00 pm during the week. They also have a lot of patients (because they are great at what they do), but that means they are booked out weeks in advance. These factors made it difficult for me to schedule/reschedule appointment times that were most convenient for me. However, they always did their best to work around my strict work/class schedule.read more

I cannot express enough how amazed I am with the care and expertise provided by Dr. Akhavan and his team of professionals. Dr. Akhavan depth of... knowledge and expertise in his field is truly impressive. He was even able to continue my treatment while I was overseas for an extended period of time, which was far beyond my expectations. I am happy I chose Next Level for my treatment and i am even happier with the end results.read more
