Dr. Ariana’s goal for patients is always to provide them with a beautiful smile that not only complements their face but also ensures their smile is healthy and functions properly. Patients often spend a significant amount of time and energy searching for solutions to their dental problems only to be misdiagnosed or go untreated. Dr. Ariana finds it rewarding to offer patients real solutions that can change their lives.
Dr. Ariana received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy from Boston College, Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. Following in her father’s footsteps (Dr. Max), she went on to pursue a degree in Doctor of Dental Surgery, which she completed at the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, San Francisco, California, a nationally renowned institution of higher learning.
Dr. Ariana’s education is unique in that she received specialized training from the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI Global), which means she can diagnose and treat issues involving an improper bite, poor oral posture, or a constricted airway. These include headaches, temporomandibular disorders (TMD), facial pain, orthodontic problems, and sleep problems. She has experienced first-hand how these type of oral issues can affect one’s life. Her younger sister battled obstructive sleep apnea for many years, before being diagnosed and treated for her condition.

• North American Association of Facial Orthotropics where she is a founding member and board member • Monterey Bay Dental Society • International Association of Physiologic Aesthetics • American Academy of Cra niofacial Pain • American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine • American Academy of Gnathologic Orthopedics • American Dental Association • California Dental Association
She is the treasurer of the North American Association of Facial Orthotropics, an organization that facilitates a philosophy towards Natural Growth Guidance of the face and jaws, to determine correct “oral posture.”

In 2014, she became the vice president of MBDS, the president-elect in 2015, and is currently (2016) the president of MBDS.

Dr. Max Ebrahimian
For more than 35 years, Dr. Max Ebrahimian’s philosophy has always been to help patients live healthy, pain-free lives while having the most beautiful smiles possible. To achieve this goal, Dr. Max has made neuromuscular dentistry a focus in his practice as he continues to learn about the latest information regarding dental topics and education.
How neuromuscular dentistry became the focus of his practice was a result of personal experience for the Ebrahimians. Dr. Max and his family experienced first hand, the devastating effects of untreated obstructive sleep apnea. Back in 2007, Dr. Max, his wife Tina, and Dr Ariana completed a course that inevitably changed the focus of his practice, as well as saving his daughter’s life. The course featured insight on how the jaw and facial structure impacts fundamental health and issues that relate to TMD, sleep apnea, and facial pain. For years, their youngest daughter suffered from constant fatigue and snored while sleeping. It was at this course that they learned the effects of obstructive sleep apnea, and how to test for it. Upon returning home, Dr. Max was able to apply his newfound knowledge and run tests to determine that his daughter did, in fact, suffer from obstructive sleep apnea. This discovery literally saved her life!
Dr. Max began his education by receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Santa Clara University in Santa Clara, California. He later went on to earn his Doctor of Dental Surgery from Georgetown University School of Dentistry in Washington, D.C. He is a fellow at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI Global) in Las Vegas, Nevada. LVI Global is a world-renowned learning institution for post-graduate studies for dentists.
