Dr. Vladimir Tabakman is proud to be among the top orthodontists in the area, and within his profession as a whole. While he is a consummate professional who is confident in his abilities, he can appreciate how difficult it is to place your health in the hands of another, no matter how qualified. It is understandable that you might be curious about what makes him such an excellent choice.
Dr. Tabakman began his journey in orthodontics at the University of Houston. It was there that he earned his Bachelor of Science in Biology, laying the foundation for the rest of his education. He then enrolled at the University of Texas at San Antonio, ultimately earning his Doctor of Dental Surgery.
After earning his doctorate, it was time to complete his two-year residency, which he did at the University of Detroit Mercy in Michigan. He also earned his Master of Orthodontics from the Univeristy of Detroit Mercy at this time. Throughout his studies, he was consistently a Dean’s List scholar and ultimately graduated with the highest honors and was the proud recipient of the Dental Alumni Association Award for Outstanding Academic Achievement.
Since graduating, he has not stepped back from education. He is a big believer in the importance of life-long learning for us all—and for medical professionals, in particular. He continues to attend conferences, take classes, and publishes his own research in scientific journals, such as the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. His practice is informed by the latest research and incorporates the latest technology in order to ensure the absolute best results for patients.
Dr. Tabakman has had the honor of being voted amongst the top orthodontists by H Magazine every year since 2007. Dr. Tabakman is as an award-winning Invisalign provider for his break-through orthodontic treatments with Invisalign.

Dr. Tabakman has called Houston home since 1990, and he has come to truly love his community. Because he cares for his fellow residents and the city they share, he works hard to give back to the community. He visits local schools to help them understand the importance of dental care and make it more accessible for them. He and his practice also offer complementary clinics for student athletes to fit them with custom mouthguards and promote sports safety. In addition, he provides scholarships to local schools and supports local sports teams.
Outside of his work and his service, he enjoys spending time with his wife, daughter and son, traveling, playing sports, and just enjoying life.
