Why am I still Operating?

Dr. Momtaheni,
I am not sure if you remember Alyssa Thompson, but you performed jaw surgery on her when she was about 16 (10 years ago) to correct a lower protruding jaw. You helped correct the alignment of her jaw and improve her oral health and you also gave a young girl a new “look” and the confidence that comes with it. 
Without a doubt, what you did for her as well as what a team of doctors did to save her mom (my wife) from a very serious auto accident drove her to pursue a career in medicine. She just graduated from The Ohio State College of Medicine as a doctor! She is pursuing a career in pediatrics and is going to do her residency at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital after graduating with honors!
I will never be able to tell you how much I appreciate what you did for our daughter a decade ago, but wanted to give you a quick update on a former patient and let you know the positive impact you had on her beyond just the surgical procedure! I hope you are well!
Mike Thompson

Now You Know why!

Costa Rica: Invisalign Visit

In March 2016, Dr. Momtaheni will be visiting Invisalign manufacturing facilities. During this visit, Dr. Momtaheni will exchange his experience in application of Invisalign in Orthognatic surgery.

We Offer HbA1c

The term HbA1c refers to glycated haemoglobin. It develops when haemoglobin, a protein within red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout your body, joins with glucose in the blood, becoming glycated.


By measuring glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c), clinicians are able to get an overall picture of what our average blood sugar levels have been over a period of weeks/months.


For people with diabetes, this is important as the higher the HbA1c, the greater the risk of developing diabetes-related complications. 


This test can also diagnose a pre-diabetic condition. Since surgery for diabetic patients have additional risks, we offer the test with no extra charge.
