Professional Background

Dr. Vahab will tell you that he LOVES being an orthodontist! The best part of his job is utilizing the latest technology to give kids, teens, and young adults gorgeous new smiles.

Dr. Vahab initially started a career in Plant Cell and Molecular Biology and left his PhD studies at Cornell University to obtain his dental degree at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. He then completed a three-year residency at the University of Maryland to specialize in orthodontics. During his residency Dr. Vahab also obtained a Masters of Science in Oral Biology.


Born in the suburbs of New York, he now lives in Washington, DC with his wife Lana, who is an attorney at State Department, his son Ansel, Pamuk the fuzzy dog they rescued from Turkey, and Latka the cat, who barged in one cold night and never left.

You may find Dr. Vahab and his family hiking, nature walking, or bike riding along the Potomac river. You may have also seen Dr. Vahab on the front page of the Washington Post a few years back when he was featured in an article for installing the very first ever Little Free Library book exchange for the District of Columbia!
