Orthodontics is an investment for life. So why settle for any orthodontist when you and your family can experience perfection at AvA Orthodontics & Invisalign?
Ivy-league trained dentists, and board-certified orthodontists Dr. Hamed Vaziri and Dr. Amin Movahhedian provide world-class orthodontic care for children, teens, and adults. They use the latest materials, techniques, and technologies to create optimal treatment plans customized to each patient.
“Orthodontics is a blend of art and science, and we love what we do. A great smile connects us together and boosts our self-confidence and self-esteem,” Dr. Vaziri says.
“Knowing we’ve made a lasting difference in someone’s life through high-quality orthodontics is our greatest reward,” says Dr. Movahhedian (called Dr. Amin by patients and the AvA team).
The Team of Specialists to Trust
Just as physicians may choose to specialize in a specific field of medicine after earning their medical degree, dentists can pursue specialization after completing their degree in dentistry.
Dr. Vaziri and Dr. Amin earned a Doctorate of Dental Medicine at the prestigious University of Pennsylvania, where they met as roommates. They went on to complete two to three years of rigorous, specialized postdoctoral training, completing a Master of Science in orthodontics. Orthodontics is what they do all day, every day. Their experience and expertise show in every straight, aligned smile they create.
Committed to providing the highest standard of care and staying up-to-date on the latest advances, they became certified by the American Board of Orthodontists, which only 41% of orthodontists achieve. The demanding certification process includes completing peer-developed, externally validated written and clinical examinations.
Stellar Patient Experience from Start to Finish, 5-star Reviews
Countless glowing 5-star reviews highlight the team’s dedication to providing an extraordinary patient experience and reflect the doctors’ high standards and quality of work.
“We designed our private practice with our patients and their well-being in mind,” Dr. Vaziri says. Patients enjoy the clean, modern, eco-friendly office, welcoming staff, and know they will be seen on time for an appointment.
“We’re not a high-volume clinic that overbooks and then makes patients wait,” Dr. Amin says. “Our patients’ time is valuable, and we respect this. We see patients at their appointment time or within five minutes.”
The doctors’ focus on the patient experience includes how they conduct their complimentary consultations. “Plan to be with us for around an hour during your free consultation. We perform a thorough oral exam and take photographs and digital X-rays at no cost to the patient,” Dr. Vaziri explains. “Then we discuss what we see and review options with you.” There’s never a hard sell. It’s your decision to move forward and begin a customized treatment plan designed to meet your unique needs.
Braces at Any Age
You’re never too old to have a gorgeous, straight, fully functioning smile. And now, with all the Zoom meetings that put our smiles front and center with colleagues and friends, more adults are interested in straightening their teeth.
Around 30 to 40% of AvA patients are adults. Some had braces when they were children, but their teeth have shifted over time. For others, this is their first experience with orthodontics. Either way, rest assured you’ll be in the best of hands with Dr. Vaziri and Dr. Amin.
“Invisalign is a popular option with our adult patients. The clear aligners are virtually impossible to detect when you wear them. Clear braces and hidden braces are also good options for adults,” Dr. Amin explains.
Serving the Greater Good
The orthodontists support local school athletic teams and donate to various charities their patients are involved in, but that’s not all. AvA’s Charity helps fund treatment for children with cleft lips and palates in developing countries through Smile Train, a nonprofit organization.
“These children have severe problems eating, breathing, speaking, and also suffer from low self-esteem. Cleft lip and palate reconstruction is life-changing for them,” Dr. Vaziri says.
“For every patient starting treatment at one of our offices, we donate to treat a child suffering from these conditions,” Dr. Amin adds.

After the doctors completed their postdoctoral training in orthodontics, they decided to practice together and chose to make Houston home for the weather, the culture, and the friendly people. That was 10 years ago. Today, their commitment to providing the highest level of orthodontic care and serving the community remains as powerful as the first day they entered into practice.

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends children have their first orthodontic check-up no later than age seven. Although most young children will not need braces then, some will benefit from early orthodontic diagnosis. With early treatment, extensive orthodontic work when they’re older may be avoided.
