Friendly staff who really like their jobs and care for their patients. A fun atmosphere (relatively of course) because everyone is in a good mood and want to make sure you are well taken care of. Putting patients first is why they are 5 stars, smart professional staff is why they will stay 5 stars. They are the experts in Invisalign and will take great care of you. Thank you Walnut Central Orthodontics.

From the time I walked in the door everyone was friendly and I loved that COVID policies were strictly enforced which made me feel safer. The entire staff was friendly, braces plan was affordable and procedure was quick and efficient! My son and I both have braces from this facility! I will highly recommend!

It was my first time visiting an Orthodontist, I was kinda nervous at first, but as soon as I walked in there I knew I had came to a good place. The office is so nice and clean, the staff is super friendly. I felt so comfortable, and so did my kids. They have several XBox Ones for the kids to play with and that was perfect for my kid. When we left my son was like ” mom I wanna come here for now on ” my response was ” me to “! I recommend this place 100%

I went to Walnut Central after a friend of mine told me where she was taking her son AND also looking at the reviews, seeing the positive reviews for this practice and seeing that Dr. Kanabar. Dr. Kanobar and her team are awesome. My youngest child with braces was first and then my oldest wanted braces too and we choose Dr. Kanobar since we know she will be well taken care off. Friendly atmosphere for sure.

Before starting treatment here, I had looked up a couple of places to go. I was leaning towards Walnut Central Orthodontics, but wanted to make my decision after going to their free consultation. Now it’s been several months since I started my Invisalign treatment here and I’m very glad I went with this location. I have seen both Dr. Kanabar and Dr. Choi whom I think are very professional at their work while also super courteous. The rest of their staff is also very polite and makes sure you are comfortable during your visits. I only had one issue in the beginning of my treatment and they were able to correct it within a reasonable amount of time, and I have had no problems since; only improvement with my teeth. I would definitely recommend them for any of your orthodontist needs. Can’t wait to finish up my treatment and see my final results. Thanks Walnut Central!

5 stars are seriously not enough. Dr Kanabar is Awesome. I did traditional braces as an adult and I was so happy with my teeth at the end of treatment. I had a concern regarding a tooth shifting more than it should have so I emailed the office on Sunday morning. I was expecting a call the next business day but that wasn’t the case. Dr Kanabar called me personally an hour after I sent the email and I was seen the very next day. Dr Kanabar knows how to make her patients feel like a priority. Her staff is amazing and extremely helpfuI would recommend this office to anyone wanting 5 star treatment.

Dr Kanabar is the best orthodontist!  She is very thorough and caring.  I thought going through braces and expanders was going to be very tough on my daughter.  But she breezed through it, largely in part due to Dr Kanabar and the wonderful staff at Walnut Central Orthodontics.  They made my daughter feel comfortable and at ease from the minute we started the process.  We’ve worked with several different assistants and each one so far has been great!  I highly recommend this office to anyone seeking orthodontics!

Dr. Kanabar really went above and beyond to get my son back on track with his Invisalign after he lost his tray and had thrown out the previous trays. The first time my son went in, everyone at Walnut Hill Orthodontics really made both my son and I feel very comfortable and were very thorough with my son’s X-rays. On our most recent visit, I had a few questions about our new insurance company’s coverage, which was explained fully and happily. I would be more than happy to recommend this practice to anyone.

Very friendly staff, professional but made me feel comfortable enough to be myself. I could easily reschedule if I needed to. Never had a long wait. They listened to me ramble about my concerns and put me at ease. Worked with me to get my teeth pretty with two rounds of Invisalign. Just overall really great place and would highly recommend to my loved ones.

Jay W. from Dallas, TX (Source: Yelp)


Wow! Dr. Kanabar and team are great! I did my research with braces vs invisalign to have my front teeth corrected. I saw that Dr. Kanabar’s reviews were good and after meeting with them I can see why. It is a nice, well organized, technology filled, wonderfully staffed office. I felt the price was fair and the work impeccable. I’ve now been going to her for a year and will soon be finishing treatment. Although I am looking forward to finishing with straight and perfect teeth I will miss the office and the amazing energy they have. Thanks again Dr. Kanabar! Great team!

Brian J. from Dallas, TX (Source: Yelp)


When i walked through the Doors of Walnut Central Orthodontics I instantly knew that i would have my braces done with Dr. Kanabar! It is such a blessing to have found a great place like Walnut Central, the staff is super friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is welcoming and beautiful. Give Dr. Kanabar a try you will not regret it! trust me I like my orthodontist so much that i’ve written more than one review! 🙂

Great service every visit! The entire staff is very courteous .. always willing to answer every question I have… Always engaging in fun conversation, because really who loves braces lol.. THEY DO!!!!!!! They make it very easy… lastly, very flexible I often have to change my appts and I never hear frustration, I never hear about fees they are always willing to help!!

Olana R. from Richardson, TX (Source: Yelp)


Walnut Central Orthodontics is a warm, comfortable, family atmosphere. They remember your name, and greet you when you walk through the door. I have braces now and the results are unmatched. Dr. Kanabar is the nicest, and the best orthodontist. They have a mastermind for prices in Beej. He is understanding with peoples problems and is sympathetic of struggles that have yet to come. Their resume of work is as good as it gets. They give people what they ask and don’t disappoint. I’ve never had a place impact me so much. I say to anyone looking for high quality people and results, go to Walnut Central Orthodontics and see for yourself.

Sarah C. from Dallas, TX (Source: Yelp)


Found Walnut Central Ortho on Yelp and made an appointment when I saw their discount call to action. I’ve been talking about Invisalign for a minute now because my teeth have shifted but not enough to tell. Making an appointment was super easy and when I got there everyone was very very friendly. They even gave me an electric toothbrush for being a new patient! They walked me through step by step the process and suggested Invisalign for 7-10 months or I could get away with getting a new retainer. I felt like prices were very reasonable! Highly recommend.

Neepa P. from Dallas, TX (Source: Yelp)


I came to Walnut Central after seeing the positive reviews for this practice and seeing that Dr. Kanabar is an elite provider for Invisalign….and I am not disappointed! Dr. Kanabar and her staff are all very warm and friendly. Any questions that I may have are always answered thoroughly and I felt very good about going forward with Invisalign after the initial consult. I am almost done with Invisalign and I have to say that it was a great experience and I would definitely recommend this practice to get it done. Walnut Central also offers a Groupon for Invisalign that can be used in conjunction to your insurance so I would definitely check that out. Only downside, and it’s not a huge one for me, is that the patient area is an open layout. They do have a private room that you can ask for, but other than that everyone is out in the open which could potentially feel a little uncomfortable.

I loved working with Dr. Kanabar and her team for my invisilgn. I went to several different orthodontics and they all refused to take my case. Dr. Kanabar was the only one who agreed and did such a great job! I had to do a few revisions to my treatment to get everything perfect, but my teeth look great now!

Lindsey D. from Dallas, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr. K and the whole staff are awesome! I had braces as a kid however my teeth shifted as an adult. I wanted to have a perfect smile for my wedding and they made it happen! I was given multiple options and plans and decided to go with traditional braces. Although having the “dreaded adult braces” was at times uncomfortable and embarrassing, Walnut Central Ortho made it as easy as it could be. I stuck to my treatment plan and was able to get them off in time for whitening and pictures! Thanks Dr. K!

What an awesome place. Had an issue with my braces, they were poking my gums. I set up an appointment came in and it took them less than 15 minutes I was all done. Oh yeah, I almost forgot I’m not even her patient. I’m from Florida, my orthodontist called them to take care of the issue for me. There’s tons of cheap places to do your braces, but when you go to reputable company’s they will always have a great network of Orthodontist all over America. So now you know….. when you go too her and get your braces done in Dallas you can come down to Miami knowing that if something happens she has a great network down here.

Dr. Kanabar is, by far, one of the most professional and caring doctors I have met. The welcome I was given by this office was great. Dr. Kanabar gives her undivided attention to make sure that I am satisfied and my goals are met. I actually enjoy every visit as the staff are so relaxed and fun to be around. I am very happy with my decision in choosing her office and I recommend Dr. Kanabar for all ages.

Anne D. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I first wore braces from 1969-1971. Back then, they pulled four permanent teeth and the monthly appointments were very painful. While I had a retainer, I was never told I needed to wear it the rest of my life. Through the years my teeth moved a lot, and I was unhappy with how they looked. So, in my late 50’s, I finally decided to look into adult braces. (I opted for braces rather than Invisalign as braces better fit my lifestyle.) I talked to 3 orthodontists and decided Dr. Kanabar would be the best. The whole experience from start to finish was great. Dr. Kanabar and her ortho assistants are not only professional, kind and gentle, they are all knowledgeable. I can’t recall ever waiting more than 5 minutes in the waiting room. It is very obvious that Dr. Kanabar and her assistants have not only a good working relationship, but also a good personal relationship. I had my last appointment yesterday, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. So, for you adults hesitant to go through orthodontics for the first or second time, just do it. You won’t regret working with Dr. Kanabar and her staff. (The only negative is the parking situation. It can be hard to find a parking space.)

Dr. Kanabar and her staff are so humble and friendly. They are so efficient and really care about their patients. Dr. Kanabar is a true Angel, she granted my daughters wish for braces and really has put a smile on her face. Not only did she help boost her self-esteem, she took the fear out of getting braces put on because she is so personable and genuinely cares about how the patients feels. I would recommend her to anyone! Thank you Walnut Central Orthodontics!!!!

Dr. Kanabar and her staff are absolutely AMAZING. Show truly cares about your smile and makes sure every tweak is done perfectly. Her assistants are very welcoming with friendly smiles and great attitudes! Highly would recommend Walnut Central Orthodontics to anyone and their family. Thank you Dr. Kanabar and staff for making my time and smile worth it!

Dr. Kanebar and the entire staff have been so very attentive to my correction care and have been delightful to collaborate with during my entire prescription. The entire staff is knowledgeable, caring, skilled, pleasant, and efficient in delivering the best care in the North Dallas area. I can honestly say I will keep them as my orthodontic care provider from now on. Thank you so much for helping me maintain my beautiful smile.

Great staff! Laura helped me start the whole process, to understand about the payments, insurance and everything about it. The doctor is so kind and confident, she makes sure that you understand everything about your treatment, you will feel that everything is going to be alright and that you are in the best hands. Her assistants are very patient and kind. I totally recommend this place. I love them. Thanks for helping me to have a best beautiful smile. Can’t wait to see the results when I finish my invisalign treatment.

Pinny S. from Dallas, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kanabar and staff are caring and wonderful.  They are quite knowledgeable in their field of practice.  They strive to achieve the best treatment possible for you.  I would highly recommend Dr. Kanabar and staff to anyone who wishes to straighten his/her teeth.  The only place I have been recommending all friends and families to

Me Y. from Grand Prairie, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kanabar is so sweet & sincere! She takes time & care with each patient; a rare find in docs of today! I found a groupon for invisilign services for my daughter and I’m so glad I purchased!! Their prices are excellent, especially when you compare the quality of service received. Dr. Kanabar’s accomplishments are superior!! her staff is extremely friendly & her assistants are so professional. Ronnie assisted with my daughter’s first retainer & he’s so thorough in explaining the entire thing! I recommend checking out her credentials! Bring your kid, bring yourself for the best orthodontics in the DFW area!!! A++

Janice M. from Dallas, TX (Source: Yelp)


Walnut Central Orthodontics is great. The quality of people is very evident in the level of service and the quality their work. I had Invisalign and was amazed how quickly it worked. They are so flexible on scheduling that they obviously understand their clients and the reality of their lives.I would highly recommend Walnut Central Orthodontics.


Jane H. from Dallas, TX (Source: Yelp)


I am completely confident in the work Dr. Kanabar and her staff members do. My orthodontic treatment plan requires several steps and coordination between Dr. Kanabar, my dentist and my periodontist. When I began the treatment process I thought it was going to be tough on me as a patient to facilitate communication among the three doctors and to keep track of next steps in my plan, but Dr. Kanabar has been instrumental in ensuring timely and effective communication occurs so that I am fully taken care of as a patient. She has helped make the process effortless on my part and I enjoy working with her. All I have to do is show up and Dr. Kanabar takes care of the rest! It is evident that she cares about her patients. Dr. Kanabar goes the extra step for her patients, does excellent work and is a pleasure to be around. Everyone at Walnut Central Orthodontics should be applauded for excellent and friendly service.

I could not imagine a better Orthodontist than Dr. K! She is attentive and answers my many questions with patience and detail. She has built an amazing team at Walnut Central Ortho as well. From the moment you walk in you feel like family. I love all the techs here but especially Jessica. She is always full of smiles and conversation. I think they have competitive pricing and they were able to work out payment arrangements with me. Their communication between each other and with me is what i love most. I work in a field that requires excellent customer service so when i am treated with this level of customer service i like to share. They send text and emails to confirm and remind you of appointments as well as when your payment is coming due. Their website is easy to navigate and has only the essentials such as payment history, pay off amount, etc. Look no further, you have found YOUR Orthodontist here at Walnut Central!

The team here is very accomodating to your schedule…always happy and supportive to help. The personnel in the office are all highly competent and very helpful. Dr K was friendly, informative, and confident…she took the time to explain everything along with her recommendations and why. Everyone in that office looks happy!

I learned about this place from Groupon. Years ago, they had a groupon for Invisalign. I was nervous because I assumed any place giving out Invisalign vouchers can’t be good. I got the voucher and made my way to Walnut Orthodontics. BEST-DECISION-EVER. Dr. Kanabar is great! And she knows how to pick a dream team. Her staff members are polite and extremely gentle. Everyone is always smiling and so happy. A great environment to be in, especially when it comes to the one thing most people hate – going to the dentist.

Yaqub B. from Sachse, TX (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Kanabar since Jan 2014 and just finished my braces treatment today. I am so so so happy with the treatment and how my teeth look now. Not only was the the staff amazing, but Dr. Kanabar genuinely cares for each patient, is very personable, and works hard to meet all of your needs. I recommend Dr. Kanabar and staff to anyone interested in either braces or Invisalign. Thank you Walnut Central Orthodontics!!!!

I got my braces about a year and a half ago, and I am loving it. The staff is very friendly and Dr. Kanabar is awesome! I had a short period of time where I didn’t come in for 5 months or so because of financial problems, and when I was ready to resume, they welcome me in and started working with me right away. Never a problem with this place. LOVE LOVE LOVE!! I highly recommend this place.

Dr Kannabar is so wonderful with my children. She makes them feel comfortable and takes the time to discuss the options with our family. She’s aware of the developmental challenges for children at various ages and always shows sensitivity to that. We absolutely love her! Furthermore she has a wonderful staff who are knowledgeable and patient. We highly recommend this office.

Nicole M. from Dallas, TX (Source: Yelp)


I am so impressed with how nice the staff is here. I got a groupon for invisalign and it’s scary to start messing with your teeth at age 30, particularly when they aren’t “that bad” but Dr. Kanabar, Laura and all the dental technicians are so kind and patient discussing the process and working with you to make you happy. I planned to start my invisalign before my honeymoon to have them looking nice but literally while they were putting them on a freaked out and asked if I could wait until after. Dr. Kanabar was so gracious and told me not to worry, I wasn’t the only person to feel this way and that would be fine. I don’t know many doctors who are so generous when you kind of wasted their time (though unintentionally). I look forward to coming back in a month and later updating my review with my excellent results. I highly recommend D. Kanabar and her team!
