Achieving your healthy smile in Beverly Hills is just the start! Now that you have the teeth you always wanted, we want to help you keep them looking and feeling good. Maintain your beautiful and properly aligned smile with high-quality retainers.
Dr. J created Smile Rx custom aligners for patients who want a perfect smile but are worried about the cost. Here at West LA Orthodontics, we know it can sometimes seem financially out of reach to get a straighter, healthier smile. That's why Dr. J offers Smile Rx custom aligners to patients whose straightening treatment isn't too complicated. With our specialized system, we can make the process more affordable and just as effective!learn more about smile rx custom aligners
Invisalign is the go-to choice of clear aligners if you are looking for a robust, in-depth treatment plan for a straighter, healthier smile. The current leader in plastic aligner systems, Invisalign can help you achieve your smile goal if your teeth straightening needs are more complex and require a longer treatment duration. Dr. J is a leading provider of Invisalign in the Beverly Hills area.learn more about invisalign
Jonathan Shouhed, DDS, was born and raised in Los Angeles and is practicing in the community where he grew up. He graduated in 2009 from the University of California, Los Angeles and earned his dental degree at the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry at the University of Southern California. After completing his residency training in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics at the Roseman University of Health Sciences in Henderson, NV, he returned to Los Angeles to improve the smiles of his hometown community.
“I love being able to create a smile that fits an individual person's face. It's like a puzzle to me. When we're working with a patient, everybody's unique, so I really love getting the chance to do something new every time with a patient.”
Jonathan Shouhed, DDS
“Dr. J” as he is known to patients, has always had a passion for youth and has volunteered as a basketball coach as well as a tutor. He decided to focus on orthodontics because he loves enabling kids and teens to feel empowered. He believes a smile is the way we connect to each other as human beings.
We believe in giving back to the community. We donate a portion of every patient’s payment to support the Friendship Circle of Los Angeles, a local organization that serves families with special needs children.
Dr. J and his team believe age is just a number when it comes to achieving your smile goals! We treat just as many adults as we do kids and teens in Beverly Hills. We offer veneers, clear aligners, and braces with customized plans for adults. Your dream smile is one step away!
We provide our patients with detailed, comprehensive treatment. At your initial consultation we will take photos, a 3D bite scan and x-rays, as well as a complete diagnosis of any potential bite concerns. During your treatment, we provide scheduled appointments as well as any visits you may need due to an unexpected issue with your braces such as a loose bracket. If you have insurance coverage for orthodontics, we can provide assistance with maximizing your benefits. We can’t wait to see you at our practice!
