Meet the SVP of Orthodontic Support

Dr. Ataii joined Aspen Dental to lead the Motto team after decades in successful private practice. He was educated at Tufts and Harvard. From there, he became a nationally-recognized leader in the field of orthodontics.

Through that state-of-the-art training and extensive expertise, Dr. Ataii has developed amazing skills and keen insights that he teaches to doctors and care teams nationwide. And they use that knowledge to create great smiles at Aspen Dental locations near you.

What to expect at your first Motto visit 

Scheduling your appointment is so easy.


We’ll ask you a few questions and take a peek at your teeth to determine if you’re a candidate for Motto.


Next, we’ll scan your teeth. It just takes a few minutes, and helps build your customized care plan. 


Once you say “yes” to your treatment plan, we’ll get to work crafting your Motto aligners.
