Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Amanda H. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Let me start off by saying Dr. Vahid Babaeian and his team are absolutely incredible. I always wanted straight teeth and a beautiful smile when I was younger. Like most families of the time the expense of braces was just not an option. I started looking into braces as an adult and thought too expensive, too time consuming and just not for me. Let me tell you when I walked into Dr. Babaeian’s office he and his staff quickly eased all my concerns about getting braces. I started my Invisalign treatments March 2019 and I have just finished them this week. My teeth had a lot of over crowding and my cross bit was really bad. Needless to say after my Invisalign treatment my teeth are incredibly straight and no more cross bit. I am so happy with the outcome  The process was extremely easy and affordable. Dr. Babaeian and his staff always answered any questions that I had along the way. His office was very accommodating and extremely knowledgeable. If you are looking into brightening up your smile and want straight teeth you have to visit Dr. Babaeian and his team. They are truly amazing! Thank you for my beautiful smile!

Dr. B and his staff are the best! They are knowledgeable, quick and ready to help with anything you send their way. My older son just finished his treatment last month and we were so pleased with it that we brought our younger son in to start his treatment. Dr. B is always there to answer any questions or concerns you have.

These guys have changed the way I feel now. Before I was afraid to smile because of how messed up my teeth were, and now, I mean it’s gonna get some getting used to now because I’d never smile very often, but at least now I’m free to smile and to eat more of the things that I could never eat. It feels weird because I’ve been so used to the braces, but now I don’t have to worry about getting food in them and struggling to brush. The guys at Brace Connection are really nice and helpful. They treat you professionally and they care on how your treatment is going. They ask if there’s any discomfort and they take care of it. Bottom line is these guys are willing to help you have that smile that you want.

Brace Connection has a welcoming staff, everyone is always friendly and smiling.  The staff has great customer service and they care a great deal about their patients. They have fresh baked cookies all day for all the patients.  They also have monthly contest with great prizes. Dr. Babaeian takes the time to listen and answer all your questions and concerns you might have regarding your care.  As you wait to be seen your listening to great music.  The staff always makes sure you leave happy and with no pain or discomfort. The office hours are convenient for anyone’s work or school schedule.  I’ve had my braces off for about 3 months and I am very happy with my smile.  I definitely recommend the Brace Connection family to all my friends and family.   Thank you Dr B and your staff for my beautiful smile!

My family and I have been taken care of by Dr. Babaeian for over 5 years. He started with my son and did an amazing job! Over the years the office has gotten extremely busy, but they are definitely worth the wait. The office is very clean and all the ladies are very nice. Please do not hesitate to state any concerns you may have to Dr. Babaeian. Dr. B takes great pride in his work and wants you to be happy with your ortho results.

Dania J. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have 2 kids who have both got braces at Brace Connection. We have had excellent service every time. Appointments are easily scheduled and we have never had to wait, I wish all doctors offices would schedule appointments as efficiently. The office is very high tech and they have freshly baked cookies, which the kids love!I have recommended to several people and everyone has been very satisfied.  Dr. Babaeian and his staff are all very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Definitely the top orthodontic office in Downey!

Stephanie G. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


Everyone is so friendly and helpful. I love the fact that you feel like the staff is a family. And they basicly are. Plus they always keep you in mind and always make your experience amazing. Just as a little tip for those who get braces, take chapstick! You have no idea how much your lips will dry out. And another thing that I enjoy about brace connection is the sink where you can just brush your teeth before you get called up. In conclusion brace connection is the place to go. If you want something done amazing pick them.

At first we were skeptical about getting our daughter braces but after speaking with Dr. Babaeian and his staff, we came to the conclusion that we were making the right choice. From the beginning til it was time to remove her braces, all the visits were exceptional. Oh and nice job with the new office. I would recommend this office to everyone. This may not be the obvious choice but it should be your only choice. We thank you and our daughter thanks you.

Denise D. from Monterey Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just got my braces removed this morning and words cannot express how happy and grateful I am with Dr. B and his team.  I no longer feel embarrassed to smile.  It is extremely hard to encounter an office with such a high level of friendliness and professionalism, but that is exactly what you will find at Brace Connection.  They make sure all patients are seen in a timely manner and the office is always spotless clean.  Dr. B was the first ortho consultation I had after my dentist recommended me to get braces and after being in his office I knew it was the last.  It was extremely easy to make my decision to start on the spot just by seeing how they work and how comfortable they make you feel.  I would not have been able to find such amazing ladies and astonishing Doctor anywhere else.

Michelle H. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


There are not enough words to express the gratitude that I have for Dr. B and his entire staff here at Brace Connection. Professionalism, expertise, kindness, patience, compassion, and a personal investment in you, as an individual, are just a few comparable words that be used to describe my orthodontic service and experience with Brace Connection. Today is my first day without my braces and I can honestly say that my self-confidence is  improved, I have THE PERFECT SMILE, and many, many positive memories.  When you go and meet Dr. B. and his staff, your time and money spent there will be time and money spent wisely, but even more than that…….it will be an experience that one can only describe as…PRICELESS!!

My experience at Brace Connection had been wonderful. I have been to a total of 4 orthodontists ever since I was a kid. Dr. Babaeian is by far the best one out of all of these. He is completely involved in every part of the process and is very attentive. He remembers all of his patients and always asks how your day is going. His staff is amazing. The girls in the front always greet you with a smile and your name. The orthodontic assistants are very friendly. Two years coming to this office for Invisalign I have had the pleasure to have all of them assist me. What I like most about this office is that they are all a family. It is obvious that they love what they do and have fun, which is reflected in their patient care. This office regularly has active patient participation. Whether that be a contest or a reward system, you can tell that patients love coming here. More importantly my smile, I couldn’t be happier with it. Dr. Babaeian is a perfectionist (in a good way). After my estimated treatment was complete he was not 100% happy and we want back and did a refinement. He does an amazing job at making sure you are happy and that is awesome. I am now in my detainment stage and am looking forward to having a smile I am comfortable with. All thanks to Dr. B. and his staff.

Esmie M. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just completed my treatment here with Dr.B and I am so happy with my brand new smile! After going to many consultations and always being recommended at least 2 years with braces, Dr.B was able to complete my treatment with Invisalign in only 1 year and a half! My teeth were very misaligned and I had a lot of crowding but Dr. B was able to transform my smile. Dr.B and the girls are very professional and sweet! The office is beautiful and extremely clean. I couldn’t recommend a better orthodontist!

Megan D. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just finished my invisalign treatment and I am very happy with the results. I had braces when i was in high school but never wore my retainer so coming back to Dr. B was my first choice. Now that I am older i was very happy that i had the choice to get invisalign instead of regular metal braces. Dr. B is the most amazing ortho, he listens carefully to your questions and concerns and always does what he can to satisfy your needs! The staff here is amazing! All the girls are always so nice and helpful, Cindy and Soco are a few of my faves. All my appointments were always quick and I never had to wait long to be seen. I highly recommend coming here for treatment. i have already referred so many friends and they are all happy with their treatment so far !

Michelle R. from South Gate, CA (Source: Yelp)


The experience I have had here is outstanding! My mom, two cousins, sister and I have all had our ortho work done here and it has been amazing. The staff and doctor do all they can to make sure you have a gorgeous smile. I love coming here, I have been a patience since I was 10, and I’m 18 now. I highly recommend you get your braces here, you won’t regret it. I have recommended a lot of friends and they have all loved it here as well. They will get you in your braces and out as soon as they can with the proper care and time it takes. I wouldn’t have gone anywhere else! Thank you brace connection for everything! You guys are great always so inviting to come in with the littlest of problem! *insert brace-less smile here* P.s they have yummy cookies.

Dr. Babaeian and his staff are friendly and efficient. I highly recommend anyone thinking of getting braces to give brace connection a change, I promise you won’t regret it. The staff is careful & gentle, I have had no bad experiences with the time I’ve been coming. So give brace connection a visit!

Anisa N. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was in braces for 12 years (last 3 of which with Dr. B), and I just completed my treatment a couple months ago. I had a terrible overbite my whole life and my 1st orthodontist tried to camouflage it, and I needed jaw surgery after 9 years in braces. After getting recommended to Dr. B, I saw what a detail oriented professional he is –wish I could’ve found Brace Connection sooner. They have the most friendly team and hard working ladies. 10/10 recommend them to anyone considering perfecting their smile. Thanks to Dr. B I finally have my perfect smile after getting my first set of braces at age 7.

Carlos Arguello (Source: Google)


What can I say? This is the place to go for great results. Dr Babaeian took care of all my concerns and gave me the smile I’ve always wanted. I thought my teeth looked pretty good but now they look even better. I decided to go with ceramic braces (clear) because they move teeth faster and more efficiently than clear aligners (Invisalign). I had a big wedding day coming up and I needed results fast. No one even noticed I was in braces till I showed them. As an adult that’s huge! Staff is super friendly and Dr Babaeian is great and easy to work with. He answered all my questions and concerns throughout treatment and delivered my smile just in time for my wedding day. He’s an orthodontist so he is trained to move teeth correctly and he is board certified (unlike general dentists…there is a huge difference). If you want great results go with Dr B. He also put me on an easy payment plan that worked for my budget. Thanks Dr Babaeian!

Brace Connection is an awesome place to come if you are looking to get Braces. My daughter had a wonderful experience coming here. My son will be coming here soon and he is excited too. I would recommend this to everyone! Dr. B and his Team are wonderful. From the beginning to the end, I have never had an issue with anything. I would highly recommend this place to everyone. Thank you Dr. B and your Staff you guys are truly special!

Aime R. from Norwalk, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am really excited that I have finally found an awesome Orthodontist for my children. Prior to meeting Dr. B my daughter was with another orthodontist, which I hated, they had terrible service, but once I found Dr. B and his team I immediately fell in love with the work, professionalism and how well they treated my daughter. I would definitely recommend him to other friends and family. I am extremely happy to see that he cares for his patients. My daughter loved having her BRACES and loved coming to her appointments. My son cannot wait to come here next! My daughter now has a beautiful smile and she is extremely happy with how she looks and feels about herself. This place is AWESOME!!!! Thanks you DR.B and his TEAM!

Huss A. from Bell Gardens, CA (Source: Yelp)


Where do I start ? The best ortho doctor out there very professional , smart and amazing at what he does. I love this place my teeth where riding each other until I went to see Dr.B I went to many places to get my teeth done either they would mess up or they would always change doctors and start all over. The staff at Dr. B’s office are amazing it might be a little pricey but worth every penny this review was supposed to be up the moment he fixed my teeth it’s been 2 years and I recommend everyone to visit Dr. B and get there teeth done at his place you will not regret it.

Patty V. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


My son finish his treatment yeah!!!!!!!!!  He looks great, and everything is thanks to the amazing “Dr. B and Team”. We are SO very please for all the dedication and professionalism from every single person. Do not think twice to go visit and meet. Dr. B and Team, your kid or yourself not only will look amazing after treatment but you will love to share your oiwn experience. Proffesionalism, dedication, respect, good advice, good fair price and more is what Dr. B and Team will give you, that’s what  I received since day one. Try it and you will say ” Yeah you are right… they are great” THANKS AGAIN DR. B and TEAM.

I have been a patient of Dr.Vahid Babaeian for many years now and I have never had any complaints. he has a very friendly staff that always greets you with a smile. He is very professional, very friendly, and he is what should be most important with all people in his profession, he is sanitary. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a great and a straight smile.

Beronica M. from Huntington Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Want to thank Dr. V. Babaeian for giving my son an amazing smile. He couldn’t stop smiling yesterday once his braces were taken off. I highly recommend Dr. Babaeian to anyone that is looking for an amazing orthodontist. The services are highly quality, no hassle with waiting to see the Dr, availability on appointments are great, staff are very friendly, kind, professional, attire very appropriate and always matching (love it), environment very clean and welcoming. In addition, their office hours work very well for working parents and students having very early appointments to late appointments. Oh my let me tell you about the freshly baked cookies Yummmm! Overall this place is FANTABULOUS you will not regret visiting this place. Thank you to all the staff you all ROCK!!

Larecia D. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


My daughter began going to Dr. Babaeian’s office when his office was new to Downey. We lived in Downey and it was only two blocks away from her high school. The location of the office and convenience were two reasons I decided to start treatment with Brace Connection.  My daughter’s braces were just removed last month and wow…all of those years of treatment were worth it.  Her smile is stunning. I started treatment 20 months ago and had my braces removed yesterday. I was close to tears at the results. I’m 41 and never thought I would be proud of my teeth. I have a great smile but I was always very insecure about my teeth. My younger daughter started treatment with Brace Connection about a month ago.  My son has moved out of state but when he returns, I plan to use Brace Connection for him too. By the way, we moved out of Downey in 2013, so the  location now isn’t convenient but I have made the drive willingly because I trust Dr. Babaeian and his staff.  Dr. Babaeian is a perfectionist which earns high regard with me because it shows his dedication to his job.  His office is immaculate and he has all of the latest technology. Further, his office staff is always friendly and smiling! I don’t know what he puts in the water there but they appear happy and are helpful at all times.  I will continue to recommend anyone who asks, to Dr. Babaeian for orthodontic treatment. Thank you Dr. B.

Patricia S. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am so pleased with the entire experience here at this office. From the very beginning, the visits, follow ups, cancellations, re schedules, promptness, their care, experience, the whole environment is just amazing. Their staff is so knowledgeable, super caring, very friendly. They are the Best. Now for Dr. V, he is not only on top of things and taking care of his busy schedule but he is honest, respectful, courteous and simply the Best. I do recommend this office. They are very professional and you will be very happy and pleased with their amazing job. Thanks so so much for these 23 months of excellent service guys!!! We will miss you.

Jimmy R. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is such an amazing place!! Wonderful, beautiful, excellent staff with beautiful personalities that make you feel comfortable. Dr. B is an orthodontist God!!, can make any smile into a beautiful smile. I felt well taken care of during my treatments, it’s bitter sweet that my braces are off today but also I’m glad now that I can smile with confidence. I have a niece currently in treatment and she loves this place as much as I!! Appointment hours are excellent and they get you in and out for those that have a busy schedule. This is the go to place to become a brace face haha, you won’t regret it one bit, a professional place.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. They are always quick to help me with any questions or problems I may be having with my braces. Dr. Babaeian is great and really knows what he’s doing. I usually don’t like going anywhere where someone has to work with my teeth, but Dr. Babaeian and his staff actually manage to make it much more pleasant than most dentists can ever dream of doing.

Patty Lechuga (Source: Google)


My experience with Brace Connection has been nothing less than professional. The receptionists are always friendly and welcoming. Within minutes of checking in for my appointment, I am sitting in my chair. My technician always seems to be ready and prepared for me upon my arrival. Dr. Babaeian takes that time to walk you through the entire process and makes sure you understand and are comfortable with his advice/recommendations. I love their business hours and that they are willing to accomodate one’s busy schedule. Overall, I strongly recommend Dr. B’s office for all of your orthodontist needs.

Diana B. from Bell, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love love love the staff at Brace Connection. When I first had my braces put on I was a bit scared and they made me feel really comfortable and welcomed. They’re really careful and make sure you’re not in any discomfort. Dr.Babaeian is really open to any questions or concerns you have and answers them at the best of his ability. I wouldnt trade my Orthodontist for any another. If you’re thinking about getting braces here is the place to come.

V. R. from Compton, CA (Source: Yelp)


End of treatment for me and hubby. Yay! Staff was always friendly, office is very clean and Dr. Babaeian always makes sure you are happy with your braces treatment.  I am happy I found Dr. Babaeian and office. My kids will be coming here for future treatment if needed. *make sure you come alone others wise the whole family is will have braces!!! I came for my husband and we both end up with braces! :). You will not go wrong with visiting them!!! + text notification and emails were great to keep up with my apts

Monica R. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have had such a wonderful time at Dr. B’s office. He and his staff are always so kind and gentle and always explain things in a way that is easy for me to understand. I have JUST gotten my braces off this morning and I couldn’t wait to let everyone know about this amazing place. I am so happy with the results of my treatment. Everyone from the front desk staff to Dr. B and his assistants are amazing! You know it is a great place when you are happy talking to the person that handles your bill! My mom and I have been coming here for over two years, and we both are happy to keep coming back. I recommend Dr. B to any and everyone, no matter your fears or past experiences (or lack thereof :)) THANKS, BRACE CONNECTION!

Vivien Hernandez (Source: Google)


Awesome service! Everyone is friendly and nice. They know what they are doing unlike other places were they just want to get money out of you. I highly recommend everyone to go to brace connection. Totally worth your money for. I’m so glad I went to brace connection, my teeth look absolutely perfect!

Korina A. from Santa Paula, CA (Source: Yelp)


2 years flew way too fast. I wish I had my before pics to show you all how much my smile improved! Service & quality was top of the line. I never waited more than 5 mins in the waiting room. Half way through my treatment I moved 2 hours away & Dr. B & his team were always able to accommodated me. He was worth the drive & I would recommend everyone looking for an orthodontist. {BONUS to anyone with children: they have a PlayStation & Xbox for the kids to play while you (or your child) are in treatment}.

Carlos P. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just finished my two year orthodontic treatment with Dr. B in Downey.  I was very impressed by his commitment to address and meet my treatment goals.  He listened as i spoke about past orthodontic experiences and clearly demonstrated a level of professionalism above the rest.  Dr. B was respectful and displayed optimal levels of interpersonal communication that  was warm, welcoming, and made me feel right at home.  HIs staff, which are all friendly, super  courteous, and most importantly, very skilled in what they do, are a reflection of his dedication and adherence to the commitment he has made to improve the well-being of his clients.  In addition to the high quality of care and professionalism, Dr. B appeared very knowledgeable and skilled.  This was evidenced by his utilization of cutting edge equipment and techniques, along with his use of latest best practice standards in the field of dentistry.  I am confident that my experience at Dr. B’s  resonates with all of the patients he has worked with, and that he will continue to excel in his field to better serve those who come for services.
