Highly reliable Orthodontist
Excellent facility, I am currently in the early stages of my Invisalign treatment. Dr. David Alpan and his team are very professional and has provided me with a plan to fix my smile. I fell very comfortable and taken care of, this is one of the best clinics I’ve been to, I highly recommend Alpan orthodontics

Best orthodontist in the US!!
This is for sure the chillest ortho office I’ve been to. I have always have had bad experiences at the orthodontist and the staff really makes me feel comfortable every time I walk in. Dr. Alpan is the absolute best and I’ve had only the best outcomes and visits with her. Definitely recommend booking an appointment.

My family's first choice
Dr. Alpan is the best orthodontist hands down. His treatments have been spot on. My oldest daughter had a great experience and now he is working on my second daughter. He is professional, and beyond patient. My kids love him! His office staff always go above and beyond. Highly recommended!!!

Dr Alpan is a wonderful and caring orthodontist. He listens very carefully to what you explain is bothering you and then makes suggestions as to what treatments might best benefit you . He doesn’t mind listening and doesn’t mind explaining things over again if he sees that you are having difficulty in understanding him . His staff is very professional, caring and very polite and make you feel welcomed.

I had a great overall experience over my 4 years of being with Dr. Alpan and his team. They were really nice to me the entire process, and I was never left confused or with any questions after being given very thorough explanations. In addition, I was able to come in the same day when I had emergencies, which shows that they put your needs over their time. Throughout most of my procedure Dr. Alpan was my main doctor, and I really appreciate what he and his team have done for me through these years of having braces.

Removed my braces today and I have to say Dr Alpan changed my smile and my life forever. My only regret was not getting braces earlier. I never thought those badly crowded and crooked teeth of mine could look like what they do now. Dr Alpan was really upfront with me at the start of treatment (being that though I opted for Invisalign, my crowding was so bad that I will need metal braces to complete the treatment). He didn't oversell like some other clinics I consulted, and was so prompt in responding to queries. Throughout the treatment, I appreciate his confidence and professionalism in planning the best course of treatment for me. I benefitted from the holistic approach taken, in that besides orthodontics, he also worked to reshape my teeth (again because my teeth were just so wonky), so that the overall result was not just straight teeth and a good bite, but also nice aesthetics taking into account your individual facial attributes. Just want to say a big thank you!

Cannot say enough good things about this place! Super friendly, very clean and comfortable. We were given several choices for braces or invisalign and were able to make a decision we were comfortable with. All of our questions and concerns were answered right away. We are excited to have chosen Alpan Orthodontics and looking forward to seeing great results!!

As a senior who long ago, regretfully, abandoned night time retainer wear, I sought orthodontic correction. I happily found Dr. Alpan after lots of researching and asking for recommendations. His name was first, without hesitation every time. Not only is Dr. Alpan enthusiastic, personable, thorough and knowledgeable, he evidently loves what he does and it shows in his dedication to his work. His fees are totally reasonable and I am delighted with the results. He is available in three locations as well. Whichever is more convenient, you won't find a better Orthodontist. I love my smile!

Avoid Dr. Alpan! His business is a money-making venture. I don't consider him reputable. He took over the awesome and venerable Dr. Loberg's practice after Dr. Loberg passed away. What a difference. We did not even finish my son's treatment.

If you want to keep your teeth, suffering from a TMJ issue, need an advanced orthodontic treatment plan, then go see Dr. Alpan. He is Amazing! Great to be a patient of a dentist that genuinely cares about the treatment and not just billings. Reasonable rates too.

I'm not happy with my results. Good thing I got veneers after that so it's not terrible noticeable. When I went to dr Alpan, I was trying to fix my ruined bite. I had a pretty wide smile after awhile they become so narrow. I kept telling him to widen my smile since It doesn't look good with my face shape also my right side upper teeth don't fully touch with button( there's a gap between) I was keep telling him but he wouldn't do anything unless I pay him extra. (Even though already paid him mo
