 Dr. Clifford Saper
Dr. Clifford Saper, La Mesa Orthodontist
Dr. Saper has been practicing, teaching and studying orthodontics for over 20 years. In addition to private and group practice he has served on the faculty of New York University and New York medical college and on staff as a surgical orthodontist treating cleft palate and other complex craniofacial patients.
 
As an orthodontic practitioner and educator Dr. Saper understands the importance of communication, not only with his patients and their parents, but also the rest of their dental team headed by their primary dentist.
 
Many colleagues and patients have commended him on his approachability and enthusiasm with his subject, Dr Saper’s goal is to make every consultation and treatment visit an enlightening and rewarding event.
 
A native of north San Diego County, Dr Saper graduated from UC San Diego and then the UCLA school of Dentistry. He went on to Study Orthodontics and Dento-facial Orthopedics at St Louis University and continued his training with additional specialized experience at the Charles R Drew Center in the treatment of complex surgical cases in conjunction with the University of Illinois Department of Oral Surgery.  These cases brought an appreciation of a team approach to patient treatment. 
 
One of Dr. Saper’s passions has always been inspiring others to reach their full potential.  He has consistently been involved in education. During the years following his orthodontic training he served as a program director of a health sciences training program and earned a doctorate in education while teaching orthodontics abroad with the health volunteers overseas, an organization sponsored by the American Dental Association.  He was cited by the American Dental Association for his volunteer teaching in Haiti.
