Meet Your Glendale Family Orthodontists
MEET DR. SARPOTDAR
Dr. Sarpo began his journey to becoming an orthodontist at Brigham Young University in Provo, UT, where he excelled in biology and business management. After earning his Bachelor of Science in Biology in 2006, he was accepted into the UCLA School of Dentistry, where he earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery between 2006 and 2010.
His passion for the art and esthetics of dentistry then led him toward a residency in Orthodontics at the prestigious Columbia University. There he was trained by some of the most well-known orthodontists in the field. This education has given him an opportunity to master firsthand the best and newest technology in orthodontics.
Through this journey, Dr. Sarpo has been a natural leader, holding numerous academic positions including ASB social chair at UCLA and Chief resident at Columbia.
Throughout his education he has been an avid lecturer and teacher for dental students and colleagues; his passion for education is something that he carries with him to this day. After all, these studies are the vehicle to deliver his patients not only the best customer service but also the best available technology and professional guidance.

Care For All Ages From Your Glendale Family Orthodontists
At Icon Orthodontics, we believe that everyone should be able to access quality orthodontic treatment and that everyone deserves a beautifully aligned smile. We are proud to offer a full range of orthodontic services, including braces and Invisalign, for children, teens, and adults at our offices in Surprise and Glendale.
Glendale Orthodontics for Children
In order to ensure that your child is as healthy as possible, it's important that their teeth and jaws are properly aligned, giving them a healthy bite. Many parents are surprised to learn that the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children get an orthodontic check-up no later than age 7.
By that age, your child's teeth have developed enough so that small problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth can be spotted while they still have some baby teeth. A check-up may reveal that your child's bite is fine and that braces won't be necessary, or we may identify a potential problem and recommended that we monitor it. From there, we may begin treatment at a time that is appropriate for the child. In other cases, we may recommended early treatment.
Orthodontic Care for Glendale Teens
Early treatment allows our team to monitor the growth and development of your child's jaw, meaning we can catch and begin treating problems while they're still in the early stages. This can cut down the length of treatment considerably.
Teens often want to know, "How long will I be in braces?" There's no set answer, as each case is different, just like each smile is unique. We're always going to do everything that we can to ensure that your teen has their most beautiful, forever smile. Fortunately, today's braces are a big improvement over the ones that previous generations have experienced. They're smaller, sleeker, and far more comfortable than ever before. They also come in a variety of styles, materials and colors.
In addition, teens also have more treatment options than ever before. In addition to traditional metal braces, teens also have the option of choosing clear, ceramic braces, which work the same way traditional braces do, but are designed to blend in with your teen's teeth, giving a more subtle appearance. Also, if your teen wants a new smile with no wires, whatsoever, they might consider treatment using clear aligners, such as Invisalign. Clear aligners straighten teeth gradually using a series of clear, removable trays that fit over the teeth.
Adult Orthodontics in Glendale
Orthodontic treatment isn't just for children and teens. More adults than ever are seeking beautiful, forever smiles through orthodontic treatment. Today, roughly 1-in-5 orthodontic patients are adults, so it's never too late to get that stunning smile that you've always wanted.
Many adults are choosing to receive treatment later in life because they understand how important it is to maintain their oral health, they want to feel better about their overall appearance, or both. We also see many adults who have received orthodontic treatment during their early years, but are in need of a "touch up" to regain the smiles they once had.
At Icon Orthodontics, we recognize that children, teens, and adults will all have different dental needs and need different levels of attention and care. We work diligently with each patient to ensure you receive the most appropriate treatment for you in the most inviting environment.
