Expert Training

Our team has mastered the art of orthodontics through extensive education, training, and with the goal of providing superior patient care to you and your family.

Dr. Michael Tilghman graduated second in his dental school class at the University of Maryland and received many academic honors and distinctions with his Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S). After completing a three-year orthodontic residency at UMD, Dr. Tilghman received a Master of Science degree in Oral Biology with a concentration in Craniofacial Growth & Development.

As for our orthodontic team, we all share a passion for helping patients that brings us together and pushes us to provide the best while always striving to improve. We commit ourselves to continue education, learning, and exploring new treatment methods and orthodontic technology to ensure that our patients always get the latest and greatest care possible.
