Raymond –  Operations Director / Information Technology Director

I started to work for Alpan Orthodontics in 2003 as the IT Administrator. I maintain all the computer software and hardware in our Los Angeles, Century City &  Woodland Hills offices. In 2000 I became A+ certified, which ensures that I have the knowledge and skills necessary to manage, maintain, troubleshoot, install, operate and configure our network and office equipment. In 2001 I also became Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) which validates my IT technical expertise through rigorous industry-proven and recognized exams. I also help train our team how to effectively operate our office equipment and practice management software. I also manage content for our practice’s website, blog, social media sites (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) and our Google Ad Words.  I am super proud to be a parent as my son was born in 2014. When I’m not working I like to ride my Harley, travel and spends time with my family and friends.

Claudia – Billing & Collections Coordinator

I was welcomed to the Alpan Orthodontics team in Dec 1999. I was the second employee invited to join the team and I started out putting charts away, and now I am the front desk Supervisor. I am also fortunate enough to say I was a patient of Dr. Alpans. I was told by other orthodontist that I would need Jaw Surgery but Dr. Alpan was able to improve my bite and smile with no surgery. I loved my result so much, my daughter is now in treatment. There is nothing more thrilling then watching our patient’s progress. One of my top priorities is to make sure all our patients and their families leave with a smile. I truly enjoy talking and spending time with our patients. I believe at AO we have an incredible team and Dr. all working together to create awesome smiles. I am focused on making sure their experience at Alpan Orthodontics is the best it can be. I have been happily married since 2003 and have 2 children one boy and one girl. In my spare time I love spending time with my family.


Wendy Accounting

I love being part of the team at AO since I started in 2003. My primary role is in the accounting department where I process all the accounts payable and receivables. I also support our team as a Records Technician, since I was certified as a X-ray technician in 2004. I also perform 3D digital intraoral scans with I-tero and Lythos to replace the messy & uncomfortable impressions (everyone’s least favorite part). I love working with all our patients and watching them achieve incredible results. Dr. Alpan is a real perfectionist and is focused on creating the best smile possible. Watching our patients transform from the start to their finish is the reason I continue to work in orthodontics. Our office is set up with all the latest technology which makes working here even more exciting and fun.

I’ve been happily married since 2002. I love to exercise, read, watch movies and spend time with my family and friends.
