At Tilghman Orthodontics, what we love is helping our patients achieve beautiful and healthy smiles, and we do what we love everyday by providing you and your family with the best orthodontic care available. When you choose Tilghman Orthodontics, we want you to feel confident that you and your family are in the best hands when it comes to their orthodontic treatment, so we’ve included more information about us and what sets us apart from the competition below. 

An Experienced Team That Loves Creating New Smiles

To provide high quality care, we need a team that has mastered the art of orthodontics through extensive education, training, and patient experience, and that’s exactly what  we have here at Tilghman Orthodontics. 

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). Additionally completing a three-year Orthodontic Residency at UMD, he 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 staff, we all share the passion for helping patients just like Drs. Tilghman and Schwartz do, which brings us together and keeps pushing us to provide the best while always looking to do better. That’s why we also commit ourselves to continued education, learning and exploring new treatment methods and orthodontic technology in order to ensure that our patients are always getting the latest and greatest care possible.

Comprehensive Orthodontic Treatment

We work with patients of all ages and offer a variety of orthodontic treatment options, putting everything you need for that new smile all in one place. We create personalized treatment plans for every one of our patients, which maximizes comfort and efficiency to get you your new smile quickly and painlessly.  Our treatment methods include (but aren’t limited to):

At your first appointment with us, we’ll conduct an initial consultation and examination to determine which treatment method best meets your needs.

Comfortable, Convenient & State-Of-The-Art Offices

We believe that quality orthodontic care should never be out of reach, which is why we have two convenient office locations in both Salisbury and Berlin, MD. We carefully designed our offices to be welcoming and comfortable, so you feel like you’re right at home the moment you walk through our doors.
