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!!!

      Great docs! Awesome bedside manner and took their time to explain the pros and cons of treatment. Highly 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 is so awesome! He feels like a buddy I can hang with, but with the added benefit of fixing my teeth haha! He's a great guy and its a nice change of pace from your buttoned up doctor who you feel like is talking down to you.

      Drs. Artin Meserkhani, Melineh Dereghishian and their staff are the best. They're so caring about their patients. They're very kind and nice. The office is always clean. If you need professional orthodontic help you should definetely visit them.

      After my original orthodontist retired, Dr. Mel took over post braces, for my periodical retainer checkup. Dr. Mel was extremely kind and did a great job tightening my retainers. Thank you!

  •   Dr. Artin and Dr. Mel are doing a fantastic job in taking care of my daughter's teeth. The improvement in my daughter's teeth is really great. The staffs are friendly. I'd definitely refer this dental office to my family and friends.

      Dr Mel and the OrthodonticsLA staff are great! I went to a couple orthodontists before coming here, and no one made me feel as special as they did. Dr. Mel listened to my concerns and designed a custom treatment plan just for me. I already see a huge difference with my teeth and I'm so happy I decided to go with OrthodonticsLA. I recommend them to everyone!

      I did my fair share of orthodontic shopping in the Valley before I picked a place to get my braces done at. And I'm so happy I picked this one! Awesome office! Dr. A is super cool, he listens to you and your concerns and really wants you to have the perfect smile. The staff is super nice, helpful and always available to answer questions and get you in as soon as possible. They're also open one Saturday every other months which really comes in handy if you have a crazy schedule. If I needed to do it all over again (which I hope I never do lol) I would pick Dr. A again for sure, definitely recommend!
