YOUR ASHLAND FAMILY ORTHODONTIST
Meet Dr. Keyan Botsford
What a privilege it is to work with so many wonderful patients and families! I feel incredibly grateful to be in a profession that I absolutely love.
There is nothing more rewarding than feeling like I am making a difference in the lives of those in my community.
Orthodontics is about so much more than achieving a great smile, although who can complain about that?
It’s what that smile can do—helping individuals build their confidence and self-esteem to excel in other aspects of their lives—that is so meaningful to me.
My goal as an orthodontist is to help my patients achieve beautifully aligned teeth, balanced facial esthetics, and a functional bite.
I do this through careful diagnosis and customized treatment planning. I love treating patients of all ages, including children, adults, and everyone in between.
Whether it’s high school graduation, your wedding, the birth of your grandchildren, or simply everyday life moments, my goal is to help get you to be able to show off your best smile possible. I’m passionate about building long-lasting relationships throughout treatment and beyond, and I look forward to the opportunity to serve you!

The Benefits of Orthodontic Care Across All Ages
Orthodontic treatment is a powerful tool that serves more than just cosmetic purposes; it plays a pivotal role in enhancing overall oral health. From correcting bite issues in children to improving self-confidence in adults, orthodontic care can have a life-changing impact at any age. Below, we delve into the specialized needs and advantages of orthodontic treatment for children, teens, and adults.
An Investment in Their Future
As a parent, your child's oral health is a top priority. Early orthodontic assessments can offer invaluable insights into the development of your child's teeth and jaws. Initiating treatment at a young age can preemptively tackle potential issues, laying the foundation for a lifetime of healthy smiles. The benefits of early intervention are manifold, including simpler treatments later on and a reduced need for tooth extractions or surgery.
Aligning Smiles Alongside Lifestyles
We understand that the teenage years are packed with activities, from school and sports to social engagements. That's why we offer a range of treatment options that can easily be integrated into your teen's busy lifestyle. Whether it's traditional braces or clear aligners, our treatments are designed to be as flexible as your schedule, ensuring that orthodontic care doesn't come in the way of other important aspects of your teen's life.
Because It's Never Too Late for a Beautiful Smile
The journey towards achieving a perfect smile doesn't come with an expiration date. With nearly 20% of orthodontic patients being adults, it's clear that it's never too late to improve your oral health and aesthetic appeal. Our varied and discreet treatment options make it convenient for adults to undergo orthodontic treatment without drawing unwanted attention.
