Introducing Aaron Ivanhoe, DMD, MS
Dr. Ivanhoe loves working with patients and parents to construct beautiful and healthy smiles. Nothing makes him happier than seeing his patients beaming with confidence and smiling from ear to ear.

He moved across the country to attend the prestigious University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) School of Dental Medicine, where he finished at the top of his class. Following his childhood dream of being an orthodontist, he moved to Portland, Oregon, where he completed his orthodontics residency at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) and met his girlfriend, Rachel. He has since moved back to Arizona, closer to his family and the everlasting sunshine.
In addition to providing excellent care for his patients, Dr. Ivanhoe is committed to serving the community in which he grew up. He takes great pleasure in volunteering his time at food banks, public health organizations and various philanthropies.
