Dr. Michael S. Blackwood has been specializing in orthodontics since 1994. He is a third-generation orthodontist in the practice began by his grandfather and his father Thomas. He began his higher education by studying at Washington & Lee University in Lexington, Va., graduating with a bachelors degree in chemistry. He then went on to Medical College of Virginia/Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Va., and earned his doctorate of dental surgery degree. Finally, Dr. Blackwood attended University of Detroit Mercy where he earned his specialty degree in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics and a master of science.

Dr. Blackwood grew up in Potomac, Md., where he and his wife, Heidi, raised two sons. When not in the office he enjoys hiking and camping with his family. For many years he has coached middle school soccer and lacrosse.

Dr. Blackwood says, I truly enjoy practicing orthodontics and creating beautiful smiles. Every time I see my patients, I am pleased to know that I am helping them achieve the ideal smile they have always wanted. The best thing about being an orthodontist is building personal relationships with each patient. I meet such talented and gifted young adolescents, fascinating and remarkable adults, and wonderful families. At the end of treatment, it is amazing to see how a transformation in an individuals smile has such a positive change in that persons overall attitude and confidence.

We love Georgetown orthodontics! Dr Blackwood, Heidi and their team are amazing. I have never experienced this level of customer service from a medical practice. Just today, he offered to see my son on a weekend to fix a broken wire. Can't recommend them highly enough!

I was charged $7,000 for Invisalign, which is not what I needed. My goal was to reverse the bad orthodontic work previously done in high school (that guy pulled 4 perfectly healthy, permanent teeth to "make room in my mouth" instead of expanding). I was hoping Georgetown Orthodontics would reverse this but unfortunately they made my problem worse. I am now at Miami Designer Smiles, and in the process of reversing everything. Do your research and shop around before you commit to someone for this stuff.

You will be very hard pressed to find a better orthodontist than Dr Blackwood. His skill level is unmatched. He and and his whole staff are first class professionals. They treat you as if you are their only patient. The Invisalign has been exactly as Dr. Blackwood said it would be. I'm thrilled with the results.

Absolutely LOVE Georgetown Orthodontics! Professional, knowledgeable and incredibly personable. Dr. Blackwood takes his time with each client, answering questions and ensuring you feel included in your plan care. He is also fantastic at working with children; ensuring they feel safe and heard. Additionally, Mrs. Blackwood made our initial visit smooth. She ensured I had all the information I needed and has been very responsive. 10/10 would recommend.

Dr. Blackwood at Georgetown Orthodontics is the best! He is super patient, good natured and, most important, helped my kids with some tricky teeth issues.

Dr Blackwood and his team are a delight to work with. They are sincere, professional and always ready to fix a loose wire or ease discomfort from orthodontics. An added plus is that they are a small, family-run business offering a special personal touch. I highly recommend them!

Dr. Blackwood is a caring doctor who took plenty of time answering my questions and suggesting a treatment program that would best suit me. I would highly recommend this practice for this reason and it's convenient location.

They charged me $7,000 for INVISALIGN, and did the complete opposite of what needed to be done which was to reverse the bad orthodontic work I had done in high school. Instead, they made my smile worse. I am now in the right place in Miami, and in the process of reversing two poor orthodontic jobs. I needed a FAGGA device, braces and implants, and all they gave me was Invisalign. Do your research before you let someone mess with your face! Yes, correcting your teeth messes with the entire structure of your face. Choose wisely.

Since I was a kid, I've always hated my smile. I didn't like my crowded teeth and often got frustrated because of the way my teeth looked. When I walked into Dr. Oliver's office 2 years ago, I knew instantly that this office was loving and was encouraged by Dr. Oliver's positive feedback on my smile and the treatment that she had to get my teeth straightened. 2 years later I am out of my braces and sad that I won't have regular appointments, which were always a time to spend time with my ortho family. Thank you, Dr.Oliver, Ms. Bernie and the rest of the team for showing me love and patience during my treatment. I will miss all of you. Love you. I recommend everyone visit Dr. Oliver's office for all of you Ortho needs. She is the real deal and a great professional .

Had problems with them because of insurance issues. They overcharged me and I was annoyed because it took them 2 months to rectify the issue. This was the fault of the office manager. Other than that, Dr Oliver is great
