Early Evaluation

The American Association of Orthodontists and Dr. Lee recommend children have their first orthodontic evaluation at age 7. Early evaluations ensure that treatment is started at the right stage and predict the greatest result.

Adolescent Treatment

We offer a variety of orthodontic treatments for adolescents and teens, specifically designed to treat physically developing smiles. We believe a confident smile leads to a bright future! Treatments include metal braces, clear braces, and Invisalign Teen.

Adult Treatment

 A confident smile improves professional appearance, social interactions, and overall oral health. We offer metal braces, clear braces, and Invisalign treatments specifically designed for physically mature smiles. You are never too old to have a new smile!


The retention phase lasts for a minimum of 12 months. Your final orthodontic result depends on your retainers, so follow through with the hard work you’ve put in so far.


Invisalign® invisible braces straighten your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It’s virtually undetectable.

ITero Scanner

 iTero scans eliminate the need for gooey, uncomfortable impressions, and patients can see a personalized time-lapse video of exactly what their confident smile will look like at the conclusion of treatment!

What Our Patients Say

See what our patients have to say about us!


Dr. Lee and his staff are the best! Everyone is professional and friendly and our appointments are always on time. I was really impressed with how they made sure that both of my children (teens) fully understood the process for straightening their teeth and now my kids actually look forward to their regular visits and color change! I highly recommend Dr. Lee and Loudoun Orthodontics.

Cheryl  Doty


I just completed 12 months of Invisalign treatment and couldn’t be happier with Dr. Lee and the entire staff. Everyone was always very courteous and the Dr. never made you wait to be seen. Explained everything and the results were better than expected. Always filed my insurance claims for me and payments were easy to set up or take care of in a number of different ways. Highly recommended!

James M.


Being in my 40’s, I was a bit apprehensive about getting braces; however, I found the overall experience with Dr. Lee to be very pleasant. His staff is very nice, their client management top notch (e.g. no waits, effective insurance processing, and so forth), and his office state of the art. I’m about half way through, but I can see that the results will be great. Highly recommend Dr. Lee.


Frequently Asked Questions

Does my family dentist need to refer me for an orthodontic consultation or evaluation?

No, it’s not necessary. Many of our patients are referred by their family dentist, yet many other patients take the initiative to schedule an examination themselves.

I have a broken bracket or poking wire. What should I do?

Call the office and make them aware of the situation, but don’t worry: most issues can be taken care of at home until you are able to be seen at the office. For a poking wire, use a pencil eraser and “tuck” the wire away from the gum or cheek, and cover with wax. A clean pair of nail clippers can also be used to “clip” the wire close to the bracket. Then cover with wax. If a bracket comes loose from the tooth or wire, KEEP IT! Call the office so that additional time may be added to your next appointment to reattach the bracket.

At what age should I schedule an appointment for an orthodontic screening?

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends an orthodontic screening at age 7. By this age, several permanent teeth in most children have erupted, allowing us to effectively evaluate your orthodontic condition. Some orthodontic corrections (expansion and jaw development) are most effective at earlier ages.

Can my general dentist provide orthodontic treatment? What about DYI or Club orthodontics?

While a dentist is permitted to perform orthodontic treatment, like Invisalign, they have not had the extensive training in tooth movement that an orthodontic specialist has had. An orthodontist completes four years of dental school AND and additional 2-3 years of specialty training in tooth movement and orthodontics. An orthodontic specialist will closely monitor the progress of your treatment with regular appointments and can quickly address any problems or issues that may arise vs. DYI and Club orthodontics. Severe oral damage and tooth loss can occur with improperly monitored tooth movement.
