Dr. Amin Movahhedian

I love the way orthodontics combines physics and dentistry to create a unique science that is dynamic and flexible in nature. It makes it a specialty that is perfectly suited to me. The connections that I make with my patients while we work toward beautiful smiles are rewarding. I meet so many fascinating individuals and learn from each of them. They tell me about their lives, their experiences, and their dreams; and in doing so they allow me to become a part of their lives. I am honored by their friendships and that they feel comfortable enough to call me Dr. Amin.
