Meet Our doctors

Dr. Bhaven Sayania

BOARD CERTIFIED ORTHODONTIST

Dr. Bhaven “B” Sayania grew up on the “loveliest village on the plains,” Auburn, Alabama, where he attended Auburn University. He then moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to attend the prestigious University of Pennsylvania for dental school, where he not only graduated with honors but learned how to use chopsticks and became obsessed with his bicycle. After completing his orthodontic residency, Dr. Bhaven decided to return to his southern roots and relocate to the Charlotte area.

Outside of chasing the snaggletooth, Dr. Bhaven can also give consultations on sneakers and cold brew coffee, both for which he has an obsession.

Dr. Mallary Forrest

BOARD CERTIFIED ORTHODONTIST

After completing her Bachelor of Science in biology from the University of Florida, Dr. Mallary Forrest, DDS, MSc earned her dental degree from the University of Maryland, Baltimore in 2011.  While in dental school, Dr. Forrest was invited into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society and graduated in the top of her class.

Upon completion of her dental degree, Dr. Forrest served the Charlotte area as a general dentist for over 6 years.  While she enjoyed her time practicing general dentistry and gained invaluable experience, Dr. Forrest decided to hone her skills and specialize in the field of orthodontics.

Orthodontics was the natural choice for her as it encompasses all the aspects of dentistry she values the most, culminating lasting relationships with her patients while helping them realize their dream of a beautiful smile.  During her training at UNLV, Dr. Forrest earned an Orthodontic certificate and a Master of Science in oral biology while conducting extensive research in oral cancer.
