Ana Ortiz, DDS
Dr. Ana Ortiz has been practicing orthodontics exclusively here in Arizona for the past 12 years and is a member of the American Association of Orthodontics, the American Dental Association® and the Arizona Dental Association.
Dr. Ana grew up in Chandler, Arizona, and attended Arizona State University (Go Devils!) before attending Dental school at UCLA. In an effort to experience more of dentistry and a completely different area of the country, Dr. Ana moved to the East Coast where she completed her orthodontic training at the University of Connecticut.
After several years away studying dentistry and orthodontics, Dr. Ana is happy to be back home in Arizona with her family. In her free time, Dr. Ana enjoys running, skiing, hiking and spending time in the mountains with her family.
Dr. Ana loves practicing orthodontics and enjoys seeing how beautiful smiles thrill her patients. The ability to create exceptional orthodontic outcomes and to develop lifelong relationships with her patients are things Dr. Ana feels very fortunate she can provide. She is dedicated to her patients and ensuring that their feelings and concerns are heard and that they are treated like family.
It is important to Dr. Ana that she treats her patients with the latest techniques in orthodontics. In an effort to keep up with the latest technologies, Dr. Ana attends continuing education courses regularly and meets locally with orthodontic study clubs to discuss treatment with her colleagues.
An Interesting fact about Dr. Ana: At the age of six, Dr. Ana started playing the violin and continued to play through college. The real highlight of her violin career was when she performed with the Arizona Opera and Ray Charles. Along the way, Dr. Ana composed music as well, but she has found that her true talent is in composing beautiful smiles!
