As experts in braces and Invisalign ourselves, we help Dr. Alborzi exceed all your expectations. We look forward to joining you on your journey to a new, more beautiful smile at our offices in San Mateo or Half Moon Bay.

“The entire staff at Alborzi is extremely kind and considerate of every patient’s needs! They were always available if I had any questions, and worked to fit my appointments with my schedule.

As someone who had previous orthodontic treatment, I can tell you that the Alborzi team goes above and beyond to make sure you leave with the smile you want and need!”
