Dr. Pegah Kamrani

Dr. Pegah Kamrani is a skilled orthodontist who brings with her a deep passion for healthy smiles, which began in her own childhood. Growing up with an underbite, she experienced firsthand the transformative power of orthodontic care. Her positive journey with her orthodontist corrected her smile and inspired her to pursue a career where she could make a similar impact on others.

Dr. Kamrani attended Columbia University with a degree in neuroscience and competed as a Division I athlete in cross country and track. She studied at the University of North Carolina Adams School of Dentistry, where she received her DDS. Later she completed her orthodontic residency at Ohio State University, where she earned her orthodontic certificate and a master’s degree. Dr. Kamrani is skilled in advanced orthodontic treatments, including early treatment, braces, and clear aligners. Every day, she strives to provide personalized and effective care that reflects her high qualifications and previous experience as a patient.

Outside the office, Dr. Kamrani is an avid runner, training for marathons and competing alongside the Columbus Running Company Elite Team. She loves spending her free time with friends and family (she is one of four sisters!) and cheering for the Carolina Tar Heels and Ohio State Buckeyes. She looks forward to becoming an integral part of the Columbus community, transforming smiles, and changing lives.
