The team at Alpan Orthodontics works to enhance smiles for a lifetime. We have locations in Los Angeles, Century City, & Woodland Hills to help serve your orthodontic needs. Dr. David Alpan has been a practicing orthodontist since 1999—proudly part of a third-generation in his family in the field of dentistry. Perhaps it’s because passion runs in the family that Dr. Alpan cares for all his patients as if they were also his own family.
Nothing says more about you than a happy, healthy, balanced, symmetric, awesome wide smile. That’s why Dr. Alpan focuses on helping your smile function in harmony with the bite, airway, and TMJ, making sure your smile will match perfectly at any age. He began tailoring his practice in 2015 around airway orthodontics, preventing teeth misalignment in growing children, and treating obstructive sleep apnea in adults. Together with his team, Dr. Alpan leverages the expertise he’s gained in these areas to make sure each patient is carefully diagnosed and given a thorough treatment plan.
Dr. David Alpan earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from the University of the Pacific (UOP) School of Dentistry in San Francisco and became licensed to practice dentistry in California and Nevada in 1996. After completing the orthodontic training program at UOP in 1998, he received his Orthodontic Specialty Certificate. He earned his Master of Science degree in Dentistry (MSD) and wrote his master’s thesis on the results of a two-year TMJ research project.
Dr. Alpan has an inexhaustible passion for practicing orthodontics: “I decided to specialize in orthodontics because I love the challenges and rewards of improving a person’s smile along with their self-esteem. Every patient leaves our office with a bigger, brighter, and more youthful smile, and with more self-confidence. Our team strives to make every patient feel cared for in a fun, friendly, and warm environment.”
