5 out of 5 stars Invisalign
Dr. David Alpan had done the most invisalign cases to date. That's why I chose him
I never really thought about my teeth til about ten years ago when I noticed crooked teeth seemed more prominent. Never had braces, and don't remember if anyone else did in teenage years at my school. I tried the Invisalign for few months but they didnt work out for me, because the lisp was embarrassing and I couldn't have proper meetings for work. And after contemplating about straightening...

Requested Retraction - Received Abnormal Painful Bimaxillary Protrusion Dr. David Alpan - Los Angeles, CA
When I met the doctor I thought he was cool. I told him my entire story, I was transparent and open with him. I asked for retraction toward maintaining my original orthodontic result. Instead, he made my teeth become horribly extruded, protruded, painful, unattractive and completely the opposite of what we agreed upon. He is not trust worthy. He suggested the most expensive option which was supposed to ensure I got the perfect smile I was seeking to restore. I made it clear that I only and primarily cared about retraction of my incisors to preserve my facial profile. Once I began treatment, however, his personality changed. I no longer saw the detail-oriented person he presented himself to be. He seemed not to care at all. As my teeth moved further and further forward he advocated to just "wait and see" and "trust the process" until it was too late. He only made everything worse. It really seemed like he was not invested in the outcome of my teeth. He ultimately became highly irritable, impatient and really mean. I really don't think he is a good orthodontist. He may work for some people but I just can't see him doing a thorough and good job. It is going to take a lot of money and work to fix the damage he did to my teeth.
