Becoming board certified signifies Dr. Shefferman’s pursuit of continued proficiency and excellence in orthodontics.

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.
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.
