Orthodontists Dr. Artin and Dr. Mel

Orthodontics LA

Orthodontics LA is established by a team of orthodontists who also happen to be husband and wife.  With two convenient locations in Encino and Glendale they work together to deliver more than just a smile. 

With the use of low profile passive self ligating Damon braces, Orthodontics LA is able to reduce the number of office visits and provide more efficient treatment outcomes. Adults seeking orthodontic care have different options with clear braces and Invisalign. We are also providers of Invisalign and Invisalign teen. With their advanced degrees in Orthodontics, Dr. Artin and Dr. Mel are able to extend complex invisalign cases to their patients in need of clear aligner therapy.

What happens at an Orthodontics LA Consultation

Your initial consultation with Orthodontics LA will allow you to meet our orthodontists, Dr. Artin & Dr. Mel. Our orthodontists will conduct a thorough orthodontic exam, have a discussion about your concerns and how we can meet your needs. From here, a customized treatment plan will be made to fit your specifications and comfort level. Insurance information will be reviewed and payment plans provided.

  •   The people here are really really nice and ask if my wire is stabbing my gum in the back. They also have a thing called a wooden nickel which is a good incentive to not break brackets and take good care of my teeth. The office is very clean and well organized. Best orthodontist and ortho team EVER!!!

      Dr. Artin & Dr. Mel are a dynamic duo! You will love this place if you're looking for a reliable and fun orthodontic treatment/service. I got my Invisalign treatment here, originally with Dr Yu (I was sad when he announced his retirement) But I am not only super satisfied with the results that Dr Artin facilitated but also really pleased with level of customer service. The entire office & the doctors are professional, friendly, warm and helpful. Love my visits here every time, they truly take care of you.

      The staff and doctors at Orthodontics LA are phenomenal! Ive seen a huge difference with my smile. My dentist has even told me that he can't believe how far I've come. They have high-tech braces called Damon braces which save me time for visits. I recommend them!

      Had been a patient of Dr. Yu & I'm so sad he's gone, he was wonderful. Now that it's owned by someone else.. ehh. The male orthodontist had distasteful bed side manners...really sarcastic and snobby. I work in customer service myself and if my patient or customer told me they were considering treatment other than my own I would express my concern in a polite way, as opposed to a snobby way. He saw my 4 bottom teeth had shifted and said "they're a lost cause." I knew they were crooked.. but that was a bit embarrassing. Oh well, I got what I needed, won't be coming back though.

  •   Dr. Artin and the entire team at Orthodontics LA are a rarity. I was originally a Dr. Yu patient and from the very start Dr. Artin made me feel welcome no matter what concerns I had about my treatment. He is a  patient and accommodating individual. Recently I had my braces removed and Dr. Artin gave me several checkups to make sure my progress held. I know how hard it is to find a good orthodontist and that is why I strongly recommend him to all of my friends and family.

      Dr Artin is a rarity in orthodontic care. I cannot begin to express my appreciation for this man.

    I am a former Dr. Yu patient and Dr. Artin has always treated me with care and and given me one on one care throughout my treatment. Recently, he removed my braces and followed up with me several times to check on the progress on my teeth post removal. Finding a honest orthodontist is hard, this is why I recommend Dr. Artin to all of my friends and family.

    thumb Mr Z.

      Dr Artin made my entire experience extremely smooth and I always felt I was in good hands and was very well informed on what to expect/ next steps the process. I can tell he is a genuinely nice person and easy to  work with. The staff are all very welcoming and made me feel right at home.
