Meet Dr.
Ponikvar

Dr. Ponikvar’s pursuit of excellence began with hard work and dedication. His ambition started by watching his father treat patients since 1973, then continued at Stanford University, the first of his five post-secondary degrees, and as a world-class athlete. This same passion fuels his desire to help patients develop into healthier, happier, and more confident people.

Welcome to Ponikvar Orthodontics


At Ponikvar Orthodontics, our treatment is not just overseen by Dr. Michael Ponikvar, but personally designed by him as well.  He will give you several options and go through the pros and cons of each one. Dr. Ponikvar does 100% of the planning for your orthodontic work, tailored for your concerns and needs, while keeping appointments on time, in the process of creating beautiful smiles.

Dr. Ponikvar takes a conservative stance on orthodontic treatment. We’re not here to sell you braces; we’re here to help you achieve the life-long, lasting, smile YOU want, on your terms. We believe this is the care and attention you deserve, and something we would like and expect from a healthcare provider if we were receiving treatment.

Since we specialize in braces at Ponikvar Orthodontics, we will give you the option of choosing between metal braces and of course, Invisalign® clear aligner treatment!

Get in touch soon for an in-depth consultation. No referral needed! We will take time to sit with you, answer all your questions, and provide you with the information you need to make the best treatment decisions for yourself and your family. We welcome you to our Belleville orthodontic office as a first step of creating a happier and healthier you.

My experience was amazing. All questions were answered and we were given a clear understanding of what to do. Everyone and the whole experience was jolly.

Dr. Ponikvar has done a great job and is easy to talk to, too. He understands my child’s needs and was able to fix a few mistakes she had. Thanks for great work!
