Ashburn Pediatric Dental Center

Here at Ashburn Pediatric Dental Center, along with pediatric dental treatment, we also offer orthodontic treatment provided by Dr. Joseph S. Errera! Orthodontic treatment is available to patients of all ages. In accordance with the American Association of Orthodontists, we recommend that children have their first orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7. With early evaluation and diagnosis, children can achieve optimal orthodontic results. Early treatment provides a range of benefits and often means that a patient can avoid surgery or other serious complications. There is, of course, no age limit for orthodontic treatment as both children and adolescents benefit from orthodontics.

Dr. Joe, as his patients affectionately call him, grew up in Lake Ridge, Virginia. He attended the University of Virginia where he received a bachelor’s degree in biology. He went on to receive his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the Medical College of Virginia. Dr. Joe then moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida where he completed his orthodontic residency at Nova Southeastern University and received a Certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. He was eager to return to Virginia and has been practicing orthodontics in the area since 2004.

Dr. Joe is a Board Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, indicating his life-long pursuit of excellence in orthodontic care. He is a member of many professional organizations, including:
