Meet Dr. Aaron Havens
Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, Specializing in Orthodontics in Children & Adults
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 was certified as a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, the highest national level of certification an orthodontist can achieve. 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.
Dr. Aaron is happily married to Elizabeth, an Emergency Room physician. They have two amazing girls, Nina and Olivia, and a Golden Retriever named Ollie.

What Sets Us Apart
Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of clear removable aligners that fit snugly over your teeth. They may look like retainers, but each aligner shifts your teeth slightly following a custom treatment plan mapped out by the doctors. When you change the sequential aligners, your teeth gradually move into position without braces.
We believe in offering our patients choices in their treatment, and we want you to choose what is right for you. Most offices charge more for Invisalign treatment. If you are seeking Invisalign, we will provide that at no additional cost.
Training makes all the difference. When looking for orthodontic care, there are many options, but not all outcomes are equal. Treatment outcomes are only as good as the person directing them.
Dr. Aaron is a graduate of the University of Michigan and Harvard University. These institutions continuously rank as two of the best in the country and in the world for dentistry and orthodontics.
As students, the doctors took a special interest in research and both received master’s degrees in Orthodontics. Dr. Aaron’s research focused on bone stem cell biology, for which he was awarded the prestigious Milo Hellman Award. This award was established by the American Association of Orthodontists and recognizes original research that provides significant value to the field of orthodontics.
Dr. Aaron are certified Diplomates of the American Board of Orthodontics, the highest national level of certification an orthodontist can achieve.
