Smile Rx Custom Aligners

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!

“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.
