Capitol Orthodontics, PC

1800 K St NW #1100, Washington, DC 20006

I love being an orthodontist!Over the past 15-plus years in practice, I have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people from all over the world. It has always been my focus to make each patient feel like they are part of my family when they come in for an treatment, and I work hard to give my patients the complete attention they deserve.

My dental and orthodontic education at the University of Pennsylvania under the mentorship of the late Dr. Robert Vanarsdall, a world-renowned orthodontist and periodontist, has prepared me to treat the most complex multi-disciplinary cases with confidence and success.

  • Dr. Schwartz is one of only a few Board Certified Orthodontists in Washington, DC and Rockville, MD. He is especially proud of this achievement as it is very difficult to achieve. Most people falsly believe that all orthodontists are Board Certified and that is entirely false. Most are not!
  • By regularly participating in continuing education, I am able to stay current on the latest technology and orthodontic treatments. My patients deserve the best, and continuing education allows me to provide them with more options and better results.

    I am truly blessed to live and work in such a wonderful community. I enjoy getting to know my patients and their families, and it is always such an honor to know that I have made a difference in so many of my patientslives. I couldnt ask for a better job or for better people to share their smiles with me.

    On a personal level, I love spending time with my wife Jennifer, three children, Justin, Madelyn, and Brandon, and my Wheaten Terrier, Bella. I enjoy playing tennis, golfing, hiking, skiing, and cycling.I root for the Wizards, Redskins, and New York Yankees!
