Expert Training

Our team has mastered the art of orthodontics through extensive education, training, and patient experience to provide high-quality care to 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.

Dr. Carrie Schwartz received her Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S) with distinction from the University of Minnesota. She completed a three-year orthodontic residency at the University of Tennessee, earning her Master of Science degree in Orthodontics. Additionally, Dr. Schwartz is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics.

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.

Personal Service

At Tilghman Orthodontics, we want to treat our patients like family. Our supportive Salisbury and Berlinteams work passionately with you to reach your smile goals.

You'll always get honest treatment plans from Dr. Tilghman and Dr. Schwartz and an explanation for those treatments. We're dedicated to the quality of your treatment, so you can always call us with any questions or comments.

Your orthodontist will review your photos and X-rays to find the best way to treat your needs. Then you'll choose the braces you want—traditional metal, clear ceramic, or clear aligners.

Our goal at Tilghman Orthodontics is not just to give you the smile of your dreams, but you deserve a practice that provides excellent customer service throughout your treatment.

From your first phone call to your first visit to the day your braces come off, your experience is important to us as a team.

Comprehensive Treatments

We work with patients of all ages and offer various orthodontic treatment options, so everything you need to get your new smile in one place. We create personalized treatment plans for you to maximize comfort and efficiency, transforming your new smile quickly and painlessly.

Our treatment methods include (but aren’t limited to):

  • Traditional metal braces
  • Clear ceramic braces
  • Invisalign
  • Lingual braces

We'll give you a full consultation and examination at your first free appointment to determine which treatment method best meets your needs and smile goals.

Flexible Payments

At Tilghman Orthodontics, you'll enjoy flexible appointment times, treatment options, and payment options!

We accept more Maryland insurance plans than the average orthodontic office because your greatest smile should be as affordable as possible. You can have us check your benefits before you arrive and give you a complete financial breakdown immediately.

After determining your insurance coverage and filing it for you, we'll develop a monthly payment plan that fits your family's budget.

We offer in-office, no-interest, and pick-a-payment options to extend monthly payments and reduce down payments. You can even get a discount on your whole treatment cost if you pay in full on the front end.

Modern Techniques

Dr. Tilghman, Dr. Schwartz, and their team stay up-to-date on the latest orthodontic treatments and technology. Tilghman Orthodontics is your go-to office in Salisbury and Berlin for modern orthodontic treatment.

We offer aesthetic options like ceramic braces and Invisalign for faster and more efficient tooth movement and treatment times. Thanks to new 3D technology, goopy impressions are becoming obsolete daily while our digital treatments become more effective.

From our two-way texting communication option to our iTero digital scanner to reduce those outdated, goopy impressions, we want to always make our treatment current with the most advanced and practical improvements for your care.
