About the Doctor

Thank you for taking the time to come visit our website and learn more about our practice! I have been practicing as an orthodontist in Northern Virginia since 2005. People always ask why I chose to become an orthodontist. Pure and simple, I love to make people smile. My team and I strive each day to make sure everybody who enters our office, leaves with a smile. We know getting braces can be a challenging experience, but our goal is to make sure the entire process is as easy as possible. From the 6 year old who cannot wait to get braces to the 75 year old that has been waiting a lifetime to smile, my team and I am here to make sure your smile lasts a lifetime!

My philosophy is that education is a process we engage in our entire lives. At Elhady Orthodontics, we stay on the cutting edge by attending continuing education seminars for all team members which allows us to offer you the best services and latest techniques. We have invested in becoming proficient in cutting edge technologies like Invisalign and Invisalign teen to maximize your treatment comfort and experience. I also like stay on the newest research and techniques in the field of adult orthodontics by taking courses at the Dawson Academy and at Spear Education. Please visit the treatment section to learn about some of these treatment options.

I have also had the privilege of going through the rigorous testing process by the American Board of Orthodontics to become board certified, an honor held only by a small percentage of orthodontists. Click here to look over some of these treatments.

I enjoy volunteering at the MOM project and Just Give Kids a Smile each year. To stay current on the latest developments in dentistry, I like to be involved with the Northern Virginia Dental Society as well the Northern Virginia Orthodontic Study Club.


On a personal level, I am married to my amazing wife, Merehan, and we have two sons, Zakariah and Zain. We live in Clifton, close to both the Burke and Fairfax practice. In my spare time, things that make me smile are trying to keep up with the boys, playing basketball, and running.
