Dr. Shefferman's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Shefferman "I am very fortunate to have been rated as the "#1 Orthodontist" in Washington, DC by Consumers Checkbook Magazine, and for the past 22 years, I have been voted by my peers as one of the "Top Orthodontists" in the entire Washington, DC area by Washingtonian Magazine. As an orthodontist, my goal is to provide my patients with exceptional orthodontic treatment in the most caring, innovative, and comfortable environment possible. One thing that really sets us apart from other practices is that I spend a lot of one-on-one time with my patients. I enjoy developing relationships with them and learning about their varied backgrounds. I am committed to providing every patient with an individualized treatment plan and most technologically advanced treatment available. Having an enjoyable experience in our office is just as important as achieving a beautiful, comfortable, and healthy smile. Education and Continuing Education Bachelor of Science Degree – Washington University, St. Louis Doctorate of Dental Surgery – University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey Certificate in Orthodontics – University of Maryland Orthodontic Faculty – University of Maryland Dental School I am very active in continuing my education through orthodontic and dental meetings and dental study groups. I take more than 80 hours of continuing education each year, five times the annual requirements so that I can provide the most up-to-date clinical methods to my patients. I have also had special training in the area of TMJ disorders, and am one of the top 100 Invisalign® providers in the country. I have been practicing in the Washington, DC, area since 1990. I lecture frequently to orthodontic groups and dental societies, and serve as a consultant for dental continuing education study groups.
