Dr. Aaron and Dr. Dave are brothers that were raised in Romeo, Michigan. As the only siblings in a small family, they have always been close. Growing up they did everything together and when it came to choosing a career they were no different. Dave and Aaron were roommates while students at the University of Michigan. It was there that the idea of partnering in orthodontics was born.
Dr. Aaron received his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan and then went on to dental school at Harvard University where he graduated magna cum laude with a Doctorate in Medical Dentistry. Following dental school, Aaron returned to the University of Michigan to complete his orthodontic training and received a Master of Science in Orthodontics.
Throughout his academic experience, Dr. Aaron sought out challenging research opportunities. For his research in the field of bone stem cell biology, he received the prestigious Milo Hellman Award, which is given for the top research in the nation by the American Association of Orthodontists. He is a published author with more than 20 peer-reviewed articles and has spoken both nationally and internationally on his research.
Soon after orthodontic residency, he passed the American Board of Orthodontics Exam. He is also Invisalign, Harmony, and Incognito (hidden braces) certified, and regularly studies the latest research to provide the most advanced and evidence-based care to his patients.
