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.
A native of the Valley of the Sun, he grew up in Chandler. Since the age of 3 he’s had a soccer ball at his feet. He’s been an avid Arizona sports fan for as long as he can remember.
He attended Corona del Sol High School in Tempe, and continued the Sun Devil tradition in his family by going to Arizona State University (ASU) and graduating summa cum laude with honors in kinesiology.
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.
Dr. Ivanhoe is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, and a member of the American Association of Orthodontists® and the American Dental Association®. He has been inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society and the Alpha Omega International Dental Fraternity.
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.
When he’s not straightening teeth or volunteering, he enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, hiking, camping, fine arts, cooking and just about anything involving sports.

Dominic Tam, DMD
I was born in Taiwan. I moved to the U.S. in 1988 and attended high school at the San Francisco Bay Area. I graduated from UC Berkeley and attended SFSU for graduate study then worked at UCSF doing research from 1999 to 2002. I attended Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine and graduated in 2006 with honors. I then worked at University of Medicine and Dentistry at New Jersey as an oral surgery intern from 2006 to 2007. I moved from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to Phoenix, Arizona. I focus on general dentistry, implants, orthodontics, and full-mouth reconstruction/All-on-4® hybrid prosthesis. For fun, I like swimming, running, badminton, cycling and hiking, and I also love spending time with my family and two dogs, explore the wilderness and learn how to lose weight.
