Privileged to Serve You

Practicing orthodontics in my community is a privilege. I get to meet new people every day and be a part of my patients’ lives.

Seeing a child or adult who wouldn’t smile before treatment beaming with confidence once their new smile is completed is a great reward. Witnessing this boost in self-esteem and positivity is what energized me to keep up the hard work.

I love making a living helping people love their smile. Every patient is important, but it’s especially gratifying when someone starts to smile all the time.

From little kids who are teased or bullied about their smile, to adults who are ashamed to show their teeth socially and professionally, getting to see the transformations that happen as their beautiful, healthy smile develops, is why I look forward to coming to work each morning.

Orthodontists vs. Dentists: Specialized Care for Your Smile

While both dentists and orthodontists play vital roles in maintaining oral health, orthodontists undergo additional specialized training to correct misalignments of the teeth and jaws. This specialization makes orthodontists like Dr. Pakravan the experts in teeth straightening procedures, offering a level of care that goes beyond general dentistry. Choosing an orthodontist for your orthodontic needs ensures you're receiving treatment from a professional uniquely qualified to improve not just the appearance of your smile, but its function and health as well.
