About Us


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.

“My mission and purpose is to play a role in enabling others to be able to chase and achieve their dreams with confidence by building the smile of their dreams. It is extremely rewarding to be able to interact with so many unique people and watch their transformations as their smiles change,” Dr. Shefferman

Our Expertise. Your Smile

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. 

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 has 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.


Clear Aligners

Invisalign® and other similar treatment options are clear aligner systems that use custom-made plastic aligners to gradually move your teeth to their proper positions. These aligners are designed through computer simulation to ensure optimal results. Because clear aligner therapy is a nearly invisible way to straighten your teeth, it is a very popular treatment among adults and other patients who would like a more discreet treatment option.

Traditional Metal Braces

This is the most common type of braces. Metal braces are made of high-grade stainless steel, and thanks to advances in technology and materials, metal braces are now smaller, more comfortable, and more attractive than ever before.

Ceramic (Clear) Braces

Ceramic braces are made of a translucent material that is virtually clear. This makes them popular among our patients who are interested in maintaining a more natural-looking aesthetic during treatment, especially adults.

What Our Patients Say

Karen B

I had an outstanding experience as an adult getting my teeth adjusted and have been so pleased with my new smile. And recently I got an implant and had the pleasure of returning to Dr. Shefferman and his team. I was again treated with the same warmth and professionalism as before. This time I needed a new retainer because of a new implant. They got me in immediately and were so careful about the fitting. The visits are so much fun I wish I could stop by every month as when I was in treatment. The care is first rate! The office is super friendly and supportive, a wonderful experience in every way.

Gregory K

Absolutely adore Shefferman. I went there as an adult to deal with my underbite and he worked with my medical team throughout the process. Made the whole experience great. I recommend him to anyone considering braces and will likely take my own kids to him. His office is also convenient to get to downtown, almost always some street parking in the area.
