I've always had a problem with grinding my teeth at night, as well as frequent migraines at least once a week. I had a nightguard-type orthotic made by Dr. Ivan and in the last couple months, I have noticed a big difference. I don't wake up with tight jaws and neck muscles like I used to and the frequency of my migraines have gone down to one every 2 months.  Before wearing the night guard, I did not know how bad my grinding was and had no idea this could be contributing to migraine headaches. Now after wearing the orthotic and seeing the difference it makes, I can definitely say it was a great investment!


Dr. Ivan, you made my smile beautiful

I just want to say thank you so much for your patience, and listening To me and my needs. Dr.Ivan you made my smile beautiful just when i thought no one can give me two veneers, there you were! I knew right away that your office was the place for me. Big thank you to DeDe too. I am so pleased with how they came out, you are a true artist.

Kathy, thank you so much for your consistent patience and kindness, please express to Dede as well 🙂

Can't wait to write my review on Yelp about my wonderful experience and wonderful results 🙂

Truly the Best

I started seeing Dr. Ivan about a month ago and he is fantastic! I've had a fear of the dentist for years but he made me feel comfortable and pain free! He is truly the best.

Very good dental care

I have had very good dental care and am very pleased with the repairs to old fillings, including realignment of caps on deteriorating teeth. The result was better bite, pleasing looks, and a healthier mouth.

Nobody cares more about how your teeth look than Dr. Ivan.

Nobody cares more about how your teeth look than Dr. Ivan. I never thought so much about my smile until I started seeing him. His staff is first rate as well. You won't be disappointed.

A true artist

Not so sure where to start upon my review of this wonderful dentist and his wonderful staff but let's start by saying Dr. Ivan is an extremely kind, humble, & very talented cosmetic dentist. I came to Dr. Ivan after finding him on google and consulting with a number of other cosmetic dentist in fancy schmancy downtown, but the second I spoke to Kathy over the phone before my consult (Dr. Ivan's office manager and wife whom is a lovely woman) I knew they were the office for me. They listened, and I mean really listened. When I told them I only needed two veneers on my front teeth of all places, they didn't force anything on me but gave me the pros and cons. Let me tell you the truth not many dentists want to take the time to do two veneers, they don't have the eye, they aren't patient & because 2 veneers as opposed to 4 or 6 are believed to not be aesthetically pleasing to the eye; Dr. Ivan surpassed my expectations. My teeth are absolutely beautiful. Not only are my teeth beautiful but he's patient and a truly nice man.
His assistant DeDe and him worked cohesively to make sure I was always taken care of and believe me I drove them crazy over the course of the few months it took to have my gum contouring and veneers and night guard.

I would recommend this office to anyone. His prices are a little higher than in the city but honestly it was worth every single penny. If you are looking for a cosmetic dentist go see Dr. Ivan and his team, you will be pleased, he is a true artist.

Highly recommend!

I had no idea what a difference in my attitude and appearance would be just from getting some old silver fillings replaced! I had gotten used to them and when I looked in the mirror just saw me. After my dental work I saw me minus 10 years! I did not realize how much my darkened teeth aged my face. No I do look forward to my appointments! I find Dr. Ivan to be knowledgeable not only in cosmetic dentistry but also in TMJ and sleep apnea which I have had problems with.He documents all and educates his patients. He and Kathy have been great to work with. Highly recommend!

Thank you Dr. Ivan and Kathy!!!!!

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Ivan and Kathy.
When I was young, I loved my teeth, but as I got older, they began to turn grey. No whitening helped at all. So, when I turned 60, I decided to get veniers to make them white again. A friend had recommended Dr. Ivan. When I went for my first consultation, I knew he was the one who could help me. He was not pushy at all. In fact, he talked me out of getting my bottoms done right away, until I knew that I was happy with the tops. And, he had many great pictures of clients in his office, so I could see that his work was good. Needless to say, I was totally happy with the tops, and immediately scheduled the bottoms.
My teeth are absolutely beautiful now. I couldn't be happier.
On New Years day, I woke up with a toothache. When I texted Dr. Ivan and Kathy, they called in a prescription for antibiotics and checked in with me continually until I could visit the office. I have never had a dentist who was so accessible.

Thank you Dr. Ivan and Kathy!!!!!

Dr Ivan and Kathy are the best!!!!

Dr Ivan and Kathy are the best!!!! As good as it gets! When our son had his tooth knocked out in Michigan, he immediately called us back (outside of office hours), had him take pics of his tooth and gave us information to best preserve it until we were able to get to him. Dr Ivan has gone and continues to go above and beyond any expectations!!! I would recommend their office and team to anyone! Thank you Dr Ivan and Kathy!
