Our son, age 11 is on the autism spectrum, and just started the orthodontic process 3 months ago. Dr. Vahab and his team are so wonderful with my son. Visits have been broken up into smaller bits so he will have time to adjust to each aspect of the braces (Herbst appliance, rods, brackets). Even though this means more visits, my son is not stressed at all, which is such a change from earlier dental work where he needed sedation! Plus, it gives my son time to ask questions. Dr. Vahab makes my son part of the decision process, he is one of the most patient and comforting providers I've encountered. One example was during the mold making - my son was not expecting the temporary choking feeling that can occur with the molding substance as it is inserted into the mouth, and we had 4 molds to get through! Dr. Vahab sat with him, calmly talked him through the process, and did brain puzzles with him while the assistant did the molds. When we left my son said he wasn't scared at all!

He is very professional yet personable & sensitive to your needs as his patient. My orthodontic treatment only lasted a year, but the results were amazing. I’m very pleased with my results & with Dr Vahab & his excellent staff. All were always courteous, respectful & professional. Never a long wait time either. He accepted Care Credit at the time, which was convenient for me. Highly recommend Dr Vahab!

Excellent experience! I’ve got a complicated case for braces and I may be the oldest person in the office. Dr Vahab is very calming and explains everything to my many questions. I’m thankful to be in the Gainsville office. Everyone is a joy to work with. I recommend this office to everyone I can!! It is the perfect dental office for children. Mine were sad they ‘out grew’ this wonderful place!! I didn’t know you could enjoy going to the dentist but you can when it’s Sporting Smiles. ??

Unlike other Orthodontic offices in that you are treated as if you are the only patient there. No "assembly line" treatment. Dr. V takes the time to make sure you're comfortable with what is happening during that visit and aware of how the treatment will progress in future. I always leave there feeling that my son has gotten quality care.

Can you imagine how thrilled I was when our Dentist mentioned that there was also an Orthodontist that worked in their office? No shuttling to a distance office location, located just minutes from our home and our son's school. BUT, more importantly, we found an talented Orthodonist in Dr. Vahab. We are 5 months into treatment and going very smoothly with consistent communication from Dr. Vahab. Can't wait to see the end result for our 12-year old!

I like him and I think he provides good orthodontic care. Billing and scheduling are a hassle at each and every visit. Maybe they're not as bad at his Gainesville office, but I'll most likely go somewhere else with my younger children. 12-24 months is a long time to put up with rude staff.
