STAY CLEAR from this office. My daughter spent 2 1/2 years in braces and when Dr K said it was time to have them removed I said I wasn’t happy because her teeth were not aligned properly and he said, “oh well then, she will have to have her jaw broken!” Never once was this mentioned in any plan of care during the entire treatment! He also insisted my daughter do a five-star review of his office on her last visit while she was present in the office and physically prevented her from exiting a doorway. Needless to say, we had to have ALL of the orthodontic work re-done at a reputable orthodontist.

Orthodontic treatment didn't work. I had to get braces twice. My teeth still aren't straight. I paid out of pocket for upper and lower braces: he only ever put braces on my upper teeth, and only about half of his staff are polite. He's a very nice guy, but I paid thousands of dollars for years worth of treatment that didn't work.

The consultation was wonderful. After the second visit the orthodontist was very rude to myself and my child. The office is very unsanitary, the doctor doesn't wear a mask. They do not sterilize the mirrors that they stick in the next clients mouth. If I would have knew all of this before I signed a contract I would have went somewhere else. Beware!

PARENTS & PATIENTS BEWARE! Please be cautious of Karbassi Orthodontics. Our experience with this doctor was extremely negative. Dr. Karbassi is rude to the parents and mean to the children. We witnessed several parents being very upset for many reasons and children crying at the office. The office is highly unorganized and there is a severe lack of cleanliness. The billing system is untrustworthy, and the medical care is unsanitary, Dr. Karbassi does not wear medical gloves/masks for every patient. Our son’s braces were incorrectly put on causing extreme issues, we switched to a new orthodontist where the braces had to be completely removed and put back on and treatment started all over again after over a year of wearing them. Please do your research before choosing this doctor, there are a countless number of very negative and concerning reviews and complaints/grievances have been filed with the Ohio State Dental Board, Better Business Bureau and local Dental Societies.

We never received care under Dr. Karbassi, but I brought my daughter here for her first evaluation. He pushed to install an appliance bc that is what my daughter's insurance approved (and nothing else). But a second opinion at a more reputable provider revealed she did NOT need this. Dr. K pushed and pushed to get her in there for an appliance but would explain nothing! He had NO treatment plan for her. He only wanted to get braces on her to collect our $. My full review is on google. RUN away!

A terrible person! He was rude and condescending to my wife. They came up with a mystery bill after we fully paid off the braces and he refused to remove the braces until the bill was paid. I filed complaints with the BBB he did not respond to and also the Ohio Dental & Orthodonics boards. He refused to go to mediation holding my son hostage. Charged us $900 after because we complained. Teeth are still crooked.

I paid for 2 kids for 5 plus years. My son when all was said and done has 1\4" gaps in his smile on both sides of his mouth! My wife was told that was the finished product, he could close gaps but that would cause an under bite. This was never a problem before. My daughter was taken there for an under bite, her treatment is winding down and still have the same problem we took her there for to begin with. Now we are trying to figure out what to do from here. DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR! Very disappo
