Dr. Mani Alikhani, DMD, PhD, MS

Orthodontist, Dentist

Professional statement

Dr. Alikhani is an Associate Professor at the Department of Orthodontics at Harvard School of Dental Medicine. He is the founder and Director of the Consortium for Translational Orthodontic Research, a private center dedicated to the advancement of Orthodontics. His research, funded by national and international foundations, focuses on skeletal formation, tooth movement, bone response to mechanical stimulation and "smart" orthodontic appliances. He has developed a method to reduce treatment time by as much as 60% - Micro-Osteoperforations, or MOPS, which introduces tiny holes through the gums into the bone, resulting in increased bone remodeling and accelerated orthodontic tooth movement. This method has been featured on ABC News, various radio shows and published in books and articles. He is regularly invited to teach his methods in Universities throughout the world. Dr. Alikhani specializes in complex orthodontic treatment for teens and adults. His focus is to treat severe jaw and dental deformities in patients who are seeking non-surgical treatment options, using the latest orthodontic tools, such as anchorage devices and micro-osteo perforations. Dr. Alikhani is dedicated to ensuring his patients receive the best treatment possible. He asks all of his patients to keep in touch after treatment, so he can continue observing their health and help them to maintain the benefits they have achieved. Dr. Alikhani strives to accommodate his patients, tailoring their treatment plans to their needs and lifestyle, creating a relationship that is based upon respect and trust. He practices tested orthodontic techniques, and has even developed new ones, to ensure his patients achieve the best results possible, comfortably and efficiently.

I appreciated Dr. Teixada and Dr. Alikhani taking a long time to look at my mouth and give me a full explanation of my treatment options. Both gave me very clear opinions, answered my questions, and gave me realistic expectations forthe results. One of my best doctor experiences ever! Highly recommended.
