Dr. William Hentosz has recently passed away, leaving behind a legacy of excellence in orthodontics. Drs. Nehi Ogbevoen and Tarim Song are proud to honor his memory by continuing to provide the highest possible quality of orthodontic treatment in Alhambra, California, and the surrounding areas.

William B. Hentosz, DDS

A graduate of the University of Southern California School of Dentistry, Dr. Hentosz practiced orthodontics in the area beginning in 1987. Many orthodontists graduate from their specialty training without even practicing a day in general dentistry. Dr. Hentosz, on the other hand, practiced general dentistry for five years before earning his orthodontic specialty degree. This provided him with the greater experience and ability to design complex orthodontic treatment procedures, involving treatment from other dental specialists.

Dr. Hentosz had many years of experience as an Associate Clinical Professor of Orthodontics at U.S.C.’s Department of Orthodontics. Teaching provided him with the ability to stay on the cutting edge. With the latest procedures and techniques available, his patients received the highest level of care. Dr. Hentosz offerd lectures on subjects ranging from Juvenile Diabetes to Invisalign®. Dr. Hentosz served as a member of an elite group of orthodontists performing a clinical study on the new “SL Frictionless Bracket System”.

Dr. Hentosz was Board Certified by the National Dental Board and the California State Dental Board. He maintained memberships with numerous professional organizations, including the Academy of Dentistry International, the American Association of Orthodontists, the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists, the California State Society of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, and the San Gabriel Valley Dental Association. Dr. Hentosz was a member of the Pierre Fuchard Academy, an organization representing the top 2% of dentists in the world.

Dr. Hentosz was dedicated to providing his patients with the most advanced and comprehensive orthodontic treatment available. The new Self-Ligating Brackets offer benefits that are not available with the conventional braces used in the past.

As a certified Invisalign Provider, Dr. Hentosz was skilled to create beautiful smiles without the use of braces. With either treatment technique, Dr. Hentosz advocated the use of AcceleDent® to reduce overall treatment times. To learn more about the treatments we provide, please visit our Treatments page.
