The best choice in clear orthodontics!

As the “#1 Orthodontist” in Washington, DC by Consumers Checkbook Magazine, and a “Top Orthodontist” in the entire Washington DC Metro area, as voted by peers in Washingtonian Magazine, Dr. Shefferman is proud to be the number-one orthodontist referred to by dentists for complex problems. He also treats more dentists’ families and children than any other office in the area.

Not many dentists or orthodontists can claim to be Invisalign® experts and Diamond Providers. Dr. Shefferman has personally treated and cared for more than 3500 Invisalign patients. That is ten times more experience than your typical individual Invisalign Provider. As a consultant for many dentists in the DC area, Dr. Shefferman’s expertise and guidance have helped improve the quality of Invisalign treatment throughout the entire dental community. At Shefferman Orthodontics, we are also proud to be the “go-to” office for achieving great Invisalign results with even the most complex orthodontic problems.

Why Choose a Board-Certified Orthodontist?

As a board-certified orthodontist, Dr. Shefferman volunteered to undergo a rigorous set of written and clinical examinations—a process that can take up to ten years—by his peers on the basis of his extensive knowledge and skills. Becoming board certified signifies Dr. Shefferman’s pursuit of continued proficiency and excellence in orthodontics.

What Makes Us Unique

Our excellence in Invisalign orthodontics has allowed us to reach across the country and around the world. Every year the number of "out of town" patients has grown. We are very fortunate to be able to coordinate appointments with many of our patients' interstate and international travel plans. Dr. Shefferman has actively treated patients who reside in more than 45 different states and countries, ranging from New York to Dubai to Tokyo and many places in between.

No more uncomfortable impressions! Our iTero® digital scanner gives us a quick and easy series of photographs of your teeth that are instantly converted to a digital image. These digital images are then used to make your fully customized treatment plan consisting of Invisalign trays or other orthodontic appliances.

Dr. Shefferman takes more than 80 hours of continuing education each year (six times the annual requirements) so that he can provide the most up-to-date clinical methods.

Our close work with the leading experts in cosmetic dentistry and other specialty practices enables us to provide you with the most comprehensive care available. We believe that technical excellence and good communication are both required to create the best orthodontic result.

Maintaining an efficient, comfortable, and technically advanced office requires teamwork and organization. As part of these office policies, our sterilization procedures adhere to the highest standards as established by OSHA and the American Dental Association.

We offer several financing options, including Citi Health Card, in-house financing options, and a five-percent discount for payment in full up front.

Whether you have come to our Washington DC orthodontic office referred by another patient or by your dentist, you'll find that our staff is as warm and caring as any you are likely to meet. We pride ourselves in taking the time to explain our diagnosis and recommendations for your individual treatment plan, as well as communicate each procedure as we progress with your treatment.
