We make our patients feel special by putting them first. We go above the call of duty to make sure our patients leave our office feeling happy and taken care of. We deliver the best care possible in a warm and friendly environment.

In addition to metal braces and Invisalign®, we also offer Bloore removable aligners here at our office. Bloore aligners provide a removable aligner system that can straighten front teeth in four to six months, and patients can wear them part-time!

We love our community and have a program called “Partners in Education” with Wilbur Elementary, which is our local elementary school. We donate $50 for each wilbur student who starts treatment in our office!

Our front office staff is extremely warm and friendly. The ladies in the back are sweet and helpful. We try never to say no to a patient, and always help them any way we can with a smile and a good attitude. We are lucky to have the privilege of working with such nice people in our community. Our patients are loyal and really appreciative of our dedication to their care!

Same day Treatment

Your smile is your calling card, so orthodontic treatment is always a priority for us. We offer complimentary first visits and, for your convenience, can be used to accommodate treatment. Life happens, but we are committed to helping you achieve the beautiful smile you deserve.

Flexible Payments

We understand that life sometimes requires flexibility. Whether it’s scheduling or treatment options, we can accommodate. We also offer incentives for payments in full and flexible payment options of a payment schedule that best suits your budget, pending determination, and successful filing of insurance coverage.

Expert Training

All orthodontists are dentists, but all dentists are not orthodontists. On average, six out of every 100 dental graduates continue onto the path of becoming an orthodontist. Dr. Akavan dedicated 11 years to training to achieve her goal as a practicing orthodontist. The typical education trajectory for a dental student includes three years of learning and practicing the necessary skills to regulate tooth movement, the practice of orthodontists, and facial development.


We accept all PPO insurances. We are an in-network provider for Delta Dental and many others.


NOOSHI AKAVAN, DDS, MS. Distinctively Educated, Expert Board Certified Orthodontist. Dr. Nooshi Akavan attended the University of Washington School of Dentistry graduating in 1988 with her doctorate in Dental Sciences.
