We want to introduce our Orthodontist, Dr. Vaibhav Gandhi. Originally born and raised in Ahmedabad, India, Dr. Gandhi travelled and lived in different cities throughout the journey shaping his career; he could not resist the positivity and lively culture, and finally decided to make Calgary home to raise his family.
Dr. Gandhi obtained his BDS (Dental Degree) and MDS in Orthodontics from Gujarat University, India. And this was the place where he met the love of his life, Dr. Farheen Malek, who also is a prosthodontist. He recently completed his additional specialized training in Orthodontics and received his second master’s degree from the University of Louisville, KY, USA (Go Cards!!!). He also served as a senior lecturer in dental school in India and a Clinical Instructor in the division of orthodontics at the University of Connecticut, USA. So far, he has published more than 32 articles in different orthodontic journals and presented his research on various national and international platforms.
Dr. Gandhi believes in evidence-based orthodontics and emphasizes customized treatment plans. The scope of orthodontics is not limited to teeth but covers teeth, jaws, and the face as a whole. Dr. Gandhi’s philosophy is to achieve a perfect balance between esthetics, function, and stability. He thinks communication, patient education, and transparency are very important right from the first visit to achieve treatment goals. Besides traditional orthodontic treatments, Dr. Gandhi’s areas of particular interest are Surgical Orthodontics, Invisalign therapy, Adult Orthodontics, Cleft Lip and Craniofacial Anomalies, and Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMD).
In his free time, Dr. Gandhi loves to explore new places, spend time in nature, and hike with his wife, Farheen. Very recently, he got into stargazing and astrophotography hobby. He also enjoys playing tennis and experimenting with cooking. Age is not a limiting factor for orthodontics. A confident smile is worth 1000 words, and Dr. Gandhi is honored and excited to meet you and create beautiful and confident smiles here at Symmetry Orthodontics.
