Orthodontic Experience

Dr. Kanani was born and raised in Vancouver.  He received a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc) degree in Physiology from McGill University and a Masters of Science (M.Sc) from the London School of Economics in England. He received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree (D.M.D.) and also completed his Masters in Education degree (MS.Ed) at the University of Pennsylvania.

In 2006, Dr. Kanani started his orthodontics career at Guildford Orthodontic Centre in Surrey; subsequently, in 2010, he founded Langley Orthodontics, serving the Langley and area community.  In 2009 he co-founded locations in Coquitlam and Maple Ridge which now go by myORTHODONTIST Coquitlam and myORTHODONTIST Maple Ridge.

Over the past almost 20 years, Dr. Kanani has treated many thousands of patients and well over 5,000 Invisalign patients throughout the Greater Vancouver and Lower Mainland of BC, helping them to achieve the smile of their dreams. He was recently recognized by the CEO of Align Technology, the parent company of Invisalign, for this achievement. 

His speciality is in supporting cases requiring complex orthodontics care, including braces, Invisalign, and airway orthodontics.  He serves as a mentor to other orthodontists as well as over 100 general dentists.
