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.”
