About Us

The Artists Behind the Name

The Sarver Orthodontics Team, led by Orthodontist Dr. David Sarver, is known throughout the world for advancing both the art and science of orthodontics. The office is in Vestavia Hills just off Highway 31, on Vestavia Parkway – directly across from Pizitz Middle School. In fact, Pizitz Middle School kids can check themselves out at school, walk across to our office for their appointments, and then return to school for parent-free appointments – super convenient!

The Hands That Make A Sarver Smile

There are many elements that have to come together to create a Sarver Smile. That’s where the team comes in. Some are dedicated to scheduling, logistics and making sure we’re as welcoming as we can be, others to the clinical assisting that happens alongside Dr. Sarver. Still others spend their time behind the scenes, customizing orthodontic appliances and working in our lab.

One of the great things about honing our practice for over three generations is the longevity of the team. The average time spent on the team is 11 years across all team members with some going back over 25 years. They are the primary reason people agree that being a member of the Sarver Orthodontics patient family is like are the primary reason people agree that being a member of the Sarver Orthodontics patient family is like being a member of our extended family.
