Dr. Alyssa Levin is thrilled to be part of the Desert Ridge community.

She is a proud, second generation orthodontist. Her father, Dr. Paul Levin, is a well-respected and accomplished clinician, who has practiced in Mississauga, Ontario for over 35 years. Although a native of Toronto, Canada herself, Dr. Levin decided to make Phoenix her home after her parents discovered the area on a ski trip gone awry.

Dr. Levin completed her undergraduate training with a Bachelor of Science in Physiology from the internationally acclaimed McGill University in Montreal, Canada, and followed with her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario. She then came state-side to pursue her Masters in Orthodontics from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Go Blue!

Dr. Levin is committed to the pursuit of excellence, both for herself and her patients, and she considers herself a lifelong student. Dr. Levin is the recipient of various awards and academic honors, and is a published author in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. Dr. Levin also belongs to numerous Professional Associations and Societies, both locally and nationally. She currently serves as Membership Chair for the most storied orthodontic study club in the country, the Arizona Orthodontic Study Group, and is Past-President of the Scottsdale/Paradise Valley Dental Study Club.

So passionate about education is she that Dr. Levin has been teaching the orthodontic residents at A.T. Still University in Mesa, Arizona since the Program’s inception in 2007, and is their former Clinic Director. She absolutely adores working with and helping to educate future orthodontists, but she loves nothing more than the opportunity to put a smile on someone’s face and change a life!

When she is not perfecting a smile, Dr. Levin can be found on one of Arizona’s many exhilarating hiking trails, on the dance floor, or dreaming about her next travel destination.
