Dr. Gary Kevorkian and his staff have been excellent, very professional, very friendly and caring throughout the years we have had the pleasure to be one of their many patients. Dr. Kevorkian has done a great job with our four kids’ orthodontist needs,  we are very happy and satisfied with the final results. We would definitely recommend DesignersSmiles Orthodontics.

I really enjoyed being Dr. Gary Kevorkian”s patient the past 2 years. Gary Kevorkian and his staff are truly wonderful. I recommend you this Orthodontist because he is the first person you should go to if you would like to fix your teeth. And to always smile no matter what!!! Thank You so much!!!

M. from Valley Glen, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


The first time I went to Dr. Kevorkian’s office in Glendale was about 2.5 years ago. I went there after consulting with a few other Orthodontists in Glendale and immediately knew that I’d much prefer to visit Dr. Kevorkian and his staff for the next 2-3 years over any other office. Now, I am near finished with Invisalign and am very happy with the result. So, to summarize, this is what I base my 5 star review on; Dr’s knowledge – 5 Personality – 5 Friendliness of staff – 5 (Vera, Romina, Alina, Teresa and all the other ladies are very nice and always make me feel comfortable, so thank you ladies, keep up the great work and the positive attitude). I have to mention that Vera is absolutely the life of that office. You’re awesome Vera! $ – 5 (I thought the price was reasonable, especially after visiting those other offices) A million thanks to you Dr. Kevorkian for 1)my straight teeth, 2)being so caring and nice all the time and 3)maintaining such a pleasant team. I will always be on a lookout to refer you patients.

Dr. Gary Kervorkian and his warm and extremely helpful staff guided me through my Invisalign orthodontic treatment. It was one on the best things I have ever done!! I want to thank him & his staff for everything & his brilliant referral to Dr. Sona Kazazian, DDS One of the best dentist to have walked the face of the earth! I was also referred by Dr. Kervorkian to Dr. Aslanian, who preformed perfect oral surgery on me. I feel so very fortunate to have found this extraordinary gifted team of dental practitioners

Bobby H. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kevorkian and his staff are the most friendly and understanding orthodontic professionals you will ever encounter. My wife has had a number of dental issues in the past years. As a result, her teeth underwent some shifting and needed to be realigned. Because of all the dental issues, my wife has extreme anxiety when it comes to any sort of teeth-related procedures. Luckily for us, we found Dr. Kevorkian’s office. He and his staff were very understanding and respectful of my wife’s anxiety. Dr. Kevorkian was very calm and friendly, always speaking in a low, soothing voice. He is extremely patient and we’ve never seen him get frustrated or annoyed. He made sure to explain everything he was doing before he did it. He genuinely listened to any concerns me or my wife might have had and made sure he addressed them and that we understood what we had been told. His staff always made us feel comfortable too, especially Vera, who knew us by name and recognized us on the phone whenever we called. The orthodontic work is nearly all done, all we have left to do is have a retainer made. I can’t imagine having a better orthodontic experience anywhere else.

Mike T. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been here and have gotten Braces and I couldn’t be more amazed. The orthodontist do an amazing job comforting the patients and getting through the process of every appointment thoroughly. The front desk is very nice and help patients out perfectly. If you are looking to put on braces to straighten your teeth, I highly suggest this place because they do an amazing job. My teeth look amazing after taking off my braces and I couldn’t be more thankful. I love my new teeth!!!!

Ashley H. from Rancho Cucamonga, CA  (Source: Yelp)


If I could give Dr. Kevorkian more than five stars I would! Him and his team are super nice and very professional. I loved coming here every time I had an appointment, they made sure to see you quickly and worked with your schedule. They also make you feel right at home and make sure you’re okay with your treatment and make sure you’re comfortable. The atmosphere of the office is bright, relaxing and modern. My treatment took two years to complete and it felt like it went by so quickly, they work at such a great pace and make sure you have perfect teeth at the end, just look at my sisters and my results. I couldn’t stop smiling when I saw how they transformed my once crooked smile to a straight beautiful one. Not only was I pleased with my results, I was also pleased with the price! We were able to work out a payment plan that worked for both parties. If I could I would restart my treatment again just because of how much I love this office and team. If you or a family member or anyone ever needs braces, this is the place to go! THANK YOU DR. KEVORKIAN AND TEAM!!

Athena A. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came to Dr. Kevorkian many many years ago and he was amazing throughout my experience with having braces.  Unfortunately, my teeth shifted throughout the years just a little bit due to not wearing my retainers (my fault) and 17 years later came back to see him for some options and was given retainers to wear.  His office is clean and very organized.  Don’t hesitate to come here if needed.

Chris G. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Beyond satisfied. The staff and Dr. Kevorkian are very nice and helpful. The Doctor gets the job done in a matter of minutes. No long waits and you leave with a peace of mind. The place is very clean and looks very professional. Highly recommend anyone thinking of getting braces for themselves or their children.

Yang A. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just took off my braces last week after 2 years of treatment with Dr Gary Kevorkian. I am extremely pleased with the result and every office visit was nothing but pleasant. I literally looked forward to each visit since day one because the doctor is so nice and patient, and every time he addresses my doubts and worries. He even emails me back when I raise a question during two office visits and tells me to drop by so he can take a closer look. Before I made my decision to start my treatment here, I visited 3 other orthodontists, the attention and care I received from Dr Kevorkian even during the consultation sessions (I had two) was already the best. I did my research and the results of my teeth have proven that I made the right choice. The office is very well kept. Everyone from the nurses to front desk are very kind and patient. All my appointments were on time, I didn’t have to sit in the office and wait for too long which was also great. I’m kind of sad that now with retainers I only have to visit every 3 months instead of 1, sounds a little silly I know. But I know I’m in good hands and am confident the doctor will continue to take care of me and perform minor adjustments if necessary. One final word, I did first wear braces when I just turned 18 but I did not go through with it because I didn’t know better but also the experience was a little crushing to my confidence. So this time as a well grown adult I had made sure everything would go right, and it did! Thank you so much Dr Kevorkian and everyone in the office (insert big straight smile here) 😀

Mary A. from Burbank, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Kevorkian is one of a kind! This place functions as a well oiled mechanism. Great customer service, amazing nurses. I thought it would be really stressful for my 9year old to get her phase one braces and retainer. Dr kevorkian made it extremely quick, painless, and also affordable. I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone, kids and adults.

Shannon K. from Sunland-Tujunga, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kevorkian has been my orthodontist for the past 5 years. My teeth had a lot of complications, but he was patient and worked with me to find a solution that fit my life and needs. Many other orthodontists didn’t feel confident they could take on my case, but Dr. Kevorkian was knowledgable enough to perfect my smile! His staff is professional, and I always enjoyed the friendly and welcoming atmosphere of the office. Thank you Designer Smiles!!!

Yvette A. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gary has been taking care of my sons braces and orthodontist needs for the last 3 years, he’s been so caring, gentle, kind and understanding. He’s extremely professional and the best thing is when they give you appointment you don’t have to wait. The staff at the front desk very nice and friendly. Overall we had an awesome experience. Highly recommend.

Austin J. from Burbank, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kevorkian was AMAZING! He and the entire staff, (shoutout to Vera and Nona!) are so friendly and professional. They were incredibly accommodating and did fantastic work. I did the Invisalign treatment, which was supposed to take 18 months, but I decided to use the acceledent tool as well, and I completed my treatment in 10 months! I would highly recommend it. If you are looking for a place to take great care of you and your teeth (no matter if your 5 or 50!) this is the place to go, hands down. Thanks again, Dr. Kevorkian!

Megan S. from Fort Bragg, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had braces as a kid, but failed to understand that I would need to wear a retainer for the rest of my life. Fast forward to my late 20’s and my teeth had drifted so badly I had trouble chewing my food properly. I was hoping that I might be eligible for invisalign, but Dr. Kevorkian explained that with my level of overbite I would need traditional braces once more. Although I was a bit self conscious at first, the entire office was very professional and understanding. The treatment was done painlessly, way better then when I was a kid, and the clear braces I got were barely noticeable. It didn’t stop me from smiling! The treatment went quickly and the braces were off before I knew it! Now I can eat properly ad my smile has never looked better 🙂  Thank you Dr. Kevorkian and your lovely staff, I highly recommend their services.

Betty L. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


We had an amazing experience with Dr. Kevorkian. He had done my daughters braces, and we recently had them taken off. We both couldn’t be happier with the results and outcome! The entire process from when she had them put on until completion has been wonderful!  The staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating with regards to patient care and scheduling. My daughter, being a student, has a specific schedule. They have always been able to work us in to accommodate her school hours. Dr. Kevorkian has two locations which also makes it incredibly convenient to schedule appointments. He is  friendly and professional, and will always answer any questions you might have. The offices are beautiful state of the art facilities that offer the latest in dental care. I have recommended him to parents of children, and they too have been very pleased with him as well. I highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in orthodontic care!

Sel H. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Awesome Dr. and staff. Very welcoming and caring. Never had to wait in the waiting room regardless of how many people there were. They respect your appointment time. Also, very good quality material is used for your braces so you won’t have to worry about breaking your brackets constantly. Although I did almost everything I wasn’t supposed to do when I had braces, I never had any issues with my braces. Absolutely phenomenal work!!

Ani N. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this team! Dr Kevorkian and his staff made my entire process seem effortless. The staff here is awesome! I have only good things to say about these ladies. They’ve always been very friendly and sweet. I had upper jaw surgery and needed braces before it. Dr Kevorkian and his team worked with the crazy scheduling and demands of my surgeon. Dr Kevorkian, himself, is great! He always greets you with a big smile and genuinely cares about your well being. Service like this is hard to find from all ends. Very grateful for them and all they’ve done for me the past year. My pre and post-op experience would not have been the same without them.

Dr. Kevorkian was a strong referral from our dentist. She said her daughter got her braces done by him. I took both of my kids to him for braces. He is an outstanding orthodontist, does meticulous work and sincerely cares about his patient. If anything happens and you call after hours, he will call you right away and consult with you. He has opened the office on a Saturday to come fix my son’s broken wire. I highly recommend him and his staff, two offices in Glendale and North Hollywood. We mostly do the Glendale one.

Jose N. from Norwalk, CA (Source: Yelp)


I took my daughter to get braces at Designer Smiles with Dr. Gary K. Kevorkian 23 months ago. I’m glad to say that her braces came off today!! :):) I couldn’t be happier with the level of service, knowledge and professionalism that everyone showed us. As a parent you always want the best for your children and when deciding on an orthodontist, I was very careful and nervous to ensure I choose “the right place” for my daughter. After almost two years, I can definitely say that I made the right choice! The receptionist are very nice and friendly. The doctor and staff were also very kind, caring, helpful and friendly as well. I can’t say enough about the service we both received. We truly feel part of the Designer Smiles Family! Regarding payments, they were very flexible and understanding. I used my flex spending plan account for the two years and they even worked with me from paying month to month to setting up an alternate payment plan that worked for me! I would definitely recommend Dr. Kevorkian and Designer Smiles!!!

Danielle W. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve seen Dr. Kevorkian and his lovely staff regularly for the past two plus years for Invisalign.  So I’ve been a fixture in their office for some time!  Through impressions, attachments, adjustments, and now retainers I’ve been consistently impressed by the kindness, courtesy, and exceptional level of service and professionalism provided by Dr. Kevorkian and each member of his team (Big thanks to Theresa, Belinda, Romina, Vera, and Nona!).  My questions are answered in detail, regular appointments are quick and follow-ups are efficiently scheduled on the way out, parking is readily available, and throughout the process the staff has communicated with my insurance provider with skill and ease (no hiccups, no confusion!).  Not to mention, I can finally confidently smile as Dr. Kevorkian’s work is outstanding and well worth the wait involved with orthodontia.  This team took great care of me.  Highly recommend.

Andy V. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my braces removed last week and I’d have to say that I’m very pleased with the way my teeth look and the service I’ve received during the 13 months of continuous visits. I just got my retainers today and they look great. Staff and Dr. Kevorkian were very helpful in explaining the whole process which made me feel very comfortable. I am very happy with the quality of service, the staff, and the atmosphere in general. I recommend Dr. Kevorkian to anyone who is looking for a quality, and professional service.

S. B. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


I believe it’s enough to say I drive from whittier to Glendale in heavy traffic once a month to bring my son to Dr. Kevorkian.  Came in to see Dr. Kevorkian years back for my son, and instead of telling me he needs “phases” of braces, he took a full xray and advised me to take him home and bring him back when all his permanent teeth had come in.  In a world where everyone is ripping people off and over charging and doing excessive procedures to make a few extra bucks, he sent us home, not knowing if I’d ever come back to him. We have seen kids in their early teens go through 3 phases of braces already…and these are the big and bulky braces that existed decades ago.  You can’t tell my son has braces in his mouth until he smiles,  they’re sleek and slim line.  Great orthodontist,  amazing front staff, and knowledgeable assistants in the back.  Highly recommended,  you won’t be disappointed, I promise.

Ratrout A. from La Cañada Flintridge, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gary Kevorkian has been our family doctor since 6 years . I got 5 different estimates and opinions about orthodontic procedures , but non of them made sense since they wanted to remove five baby teeth and then to remove again another 5 adult teeth just to fix a problem with alignment of teeth . I was recommended by my dentist to see Dr.kevorkian .i went there and this was my surprise Dr.Gary calmly said this is fixable and we can do it ! Results ? = happy kid with full teeth in mouth Happy mom to have the best option for her kid Happy dad for his pocket (Money wise) Happy family with the best costumer service that you can have ever over years and years . Keep up the excellent job you are doing ! I will recommend everyone to get advantage of this excellent facilities services

S. N. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kevorkian has a great bedside manner. I had met and gotten a diagnosis/estimates from two other orthodontists. I didn’t feel comfortable with the two. When I met with and spoke to Dr. Kevorkian, he was very forthcoming and was very honest about what I needed or didn’t need. He has a gentle manner and is always willing to answer my questions or concerns. I felt very comfortable and safe under his care. His staff, from the nurses/assistants who manage the routine maintenance visits to the office staff were also very professional and seem very competent. I highly recommend Dr Kevorkian for your orthodontic treatment. I was very happy with my results.

Sylvia B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


My niece was a patient of Dr. Kevorkian. She started out with a mouth full of crooked, misaligned teeth. At the end of her treatment she had a beautiful smile. When it came time for our son to get braces, it was a no-brainer. We’re not completed done with treatment yet, but we are extremely happy with our decision. The entire staff is wonderful, but a special thank you to Dr. Kevorkian for going above and beyond the call of duty. In March, my son sustained an horrific injury to his teeth. During a routine baseball practice, he was hit in the mouth with a high velocity baseball. His mouth was a bloody mess. One tooth completely sheared at the gum line. Most of his front teeth were loose, top teeth at least 1/4″ lower than normal, bottom front teeth all loose, braces mangled, many of the brackets missing. In a panic, I called Dr. Kevorkian’s office. It was a Sunday. I wasn’t sure if I’d get a call back. Less than 10 ministers later, the doctor called me back. Dr. Kevorkian came to his office on his day off, stabilized my son’s teeth, saving all the loose teeth. We also learned, if not for the braces, my son could have easily lost all the loose teeth. The braces protected his teeth and held everything together. We are VERY grateful for Dr. Kevorkian’s dedication and commitment. Without his intervention, my son would be facing massive dental reconstruction, and years of pain and suffering. Thank you, doctor!

Got my braces taken off yesterday and I love my new smile! Dr. Kevorkian and his team did a great job. They were so organized, professional and their office is always very clean. My smile is really cute now compared to what it was and I won’t have to worry about covering my teeth whenever I smile now. Worth every single penny and they keep every promise they made, I was recommended by a friend and I would recommend him to others. Thanks again!

Ed S. from Glendale, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was treated by Dr. Kevorkian and his team, and I must say that my experience was beyond exceptional. I needed a bi-jaw surgery (surgery on both jaws) due to an open bite. Dr. Kevorkian, assisted & guided me every single step of the way. I may have HAD one of the most severe cases of bite issues. But thanks to Dr. Kevorkian, I have a superstar smile now :). I appreciate your dedication & ambition in acquiring excellence. You are the BEST and I appreciate you SINCERELY. Thank you Dr. Kevorkian!

William Y. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Gary Kevorkian, DDS’s Designer Smiles Orthodontics works magic. You start your procedure with crooked teeth and half way through the treatment you start noticing people smiling at you more than they used to. Your image and self-esteem get a boost. The young ladies at the reception desk –Vera, Alina, Romina — are helpful, conscientious and friendly. From accounting issues to follow-up and appointment reminder calls, they make a wonderful team. The best of it for me is that you don’t have to be a kid to correct your teeth for comfort and aesthetics. Designer Smiles will enhance your personal attraction at any age and extend your lease on youth. I have to drive far to receive my treatment at Designer Smiles. But you know what? In the long run, it’s well worth it because it doesn’t feel like you’re going there for dental work. It’s more like a beauty salon where they pamper you. William Y.

Teresa H. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


As good as it gets and probably THE best! I got braces in my late 30s, yes thirties! I was skeptical in every way imaginable at first, but right from the start Dr. Gary Kevorkian and his truly friendly staff made me feel as comfortable as can be on the day of my consultation. The Dr. was very thorough with proper explanations of the options I had to choose from for my treatment. I went home and did a bit of my own research and sure enough everything turned up as Dr. Gary Kevorkian had explained, and I really appreciated his honesty and professionalism. I booked an appointment and I got my braces before I went to a full 8hr shift of work. The initial procedure was so quick and I absolutely loved my CLEAR braces (no, not invisalign). The office was sparkling clean and the had spacious seat arrangements with all the chairs facing away from each other…adding a nice touch of privacy to each patient. also the beautiful panoramic windows give the patient a nice second story view of glendale during treatment. My favorite staff member had to be Vera, she was so organized and had me in and out of the office ASAP making the payment and logistics process extremely quick and efficient. Let’s just say I was quick to book my daughter an appointment a few months later. Thank you for my BEAUTIFUL smile, I have never been this happy with myself and any office.

San G. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great Orthodontist! Accomplishes everything he says he will. The staff up front are amazingly kind, courteous and helpful at all times. They make it easy to come In And get out on time, every time. He is the go to Orthodontist and I can recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone who has orthodontic needs!

Nancy A. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Excellent customer service from Dr Kevorkian himself and from all of the front and back office staff. Fair price without having to sacrifice service. Everyone in the office are professional and very helpful. He is a perfectionist! My braces stayed on until he got the results that he wanted. And NO, I did NOT pay extra to keep them on longer, just the set price that was given to me during the initial evaluation. I have to disagree with Linda M’s whole review. He is not money hungry, greedy and I highly doubt he only prefers cash. Maybe Linda M’s experience was all in her head because her review sounds suspicious. One thing to mention that I think is quite important is my experience during the initial evaluation. Since my teeth were not too bad, I could have gotten invisalign, but felt that it was not a good fit due to my lifestyle and personality. Not only did I want clear braces, I wanted the most expensive clear braces available. He was very honest with me and told me flat out that I did not need them since my braces were only going to be on for about 6-9 months. He said “why buy a Porsche when you are going to drive below speed level?” Okay… so maybe those were not the exact words, but you get the jist… there was a Porsche and driving slow mentioned! Dr Kevorkian is not the cheapest around…. his clinic is in North Glendale, CA for goodness sakes, NOT the ghetto. If you want ghetto prices… go to the ghetto! There has to be a reason why my brother, my cousin, my friend and now me went to him! Meet him yourself so you can come to your own conclusion.

Agavni S. from Tujunga, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kevorkian was the orthodontist for both of my children and mine. He is extremely talented and has extensive experience in his field. Dr. Kevorkian is always available to answers any questions and is very attentive with his patients. The staff is professional and always available to accommodate for any orthodontic emergencies and appointments. Their service is exceptional, and I would highly recommend him to all my family and friends.

Anne-Marie L. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


My son just got his braces yesterday. He is a bit of a nervous kid with a terrible gag reflex. Miraculously, Dr, Kevorkian managed to make him feel totally at ease and he had no problem at all. In fact, my son had NO PAIN at all after the braces were installed. He ate steak the same night. Wow! I remember getting braces and I was in terrible pain for a week. The staff helped to contribute to our wonderful experience. I am so happy that I chose to come here.

Miguel I. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I know DR Kevorkian from my personal encounter and agree with all the satisfied clients.The negative comments speak for themselves as they sound getto and un-inteligent.He is a well respected, professional and experienced practitioner you can trust. Do not hesitate if you need dental/ortho work.
