Meet Our Doctor

I feel very fortunate to have found a profession as rewarding as the field of Orthodontics! For over ten years, I have enjoyed creating custom, beautiful smiles for our family of patients all over the Northern Virginia area. You can even find some of our loyal patients across the country and abroad! Getting to know all of our patients and their families is immensely rewarding, and I have enjoyed creating lasting friendships with many families. We consider all of our patients to be a part of the Tisseront Orthodontics family!

Orthodontics can change a person's life by boosting confidence and self-esteem. I see evidence of this every day and it truly is a fulfilling experience for our whole team. A great smile is one of the first things people notice, and when we see patients who can't stop showing off their new smiles, it lets us know we have done our job!


After attending the University of Paris VII School of Dentistry in Paris, France for both my undergraduate education and my Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree, I continued on to the prestigious Orthodontic Program at Oregon Health Sciences University’s School of Dentistry in Portland, Oregon. During this three year comprehensive Orthodontic Graduate Program, I earned my Master of Science Degree in Orthodontics.
I participate in regular continuing education to keep abreast of the latest techniques in orthodontics available today. My bio-mechanics background coupled with my passion for orthodontics is a winning combination for all of my patients. Participating in classes and seminars ensures that I stay current with all of the latest trends in orthodontics to pass on to my patients!


My experience includes 15 years of private Orthodontic practice in and around Reston. I specialize in both Children and Adult Orthodontics. My Team is experienced in all types of orthodontic treatments, including invisible forms such as Invisalign, Clear Ceramic braces on both top and bottom, and the latest Custom Lingual (behind your teeth) braces. As a world leader in the technology of Custom Lingual (behind your teeth) braces, I am proud to be the largest provider in the U.S. My background also includes Wilckodontics, Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs) and all the latest technological advances that make sense for my patients.

It is very important for me to evaluate every patient as a whole, including facial features, profile and what is most important to the patient. Each and every patient is different, which translates to thousands of custom treatment plans delivered over the years. I am so lucky I quite literally love what I do.

Both myself and my team are committed to attending regular continuing education courses to help stay abreast of the latest techniques in Orthodontics. Whatever your personal Orthodontic needs may be for you or your family, I pledge to deliver an exceptional, high quality treatment with outstanding customer service. Come see the difference we can make in your Orthodontic experience!

Office Life

Our goal as a practice is to be the very best part of each patient's day. When a patient walks through our door, the fun begins! We have contests, fun prizes, and an Annual Patient Pool Party. Our team members all have a genuine love for what they do, and each plays a special role to help make our patients feel right at home. From our Front Desk Coordinator to our Clinical Patient Managers, my team is dedicated to providing you exceptional, state-of-the art patient care.

As an office, we are strongly committed to supporting the community in which we live. Each year, we enjoy visiting local elementary schools to teach students the importance of excellent dental health along with our mascot, Freddy Flossasaurus! Our Annual Halloween Candy Buy-Back Event benefits Children's National Medical Center in DC as well as our Troops abroad, and proves to be a very popular event within the community.

Outside the Office

A native of Paris, France, I have been living in the Reston area since 1998 with my lovely wife and Office Manager, Astrid, and our two sons, Arthur and Alex. As a family, we love to swim in the Reston pools, ride bikes, play tennis, and we all enjoy traveling back to France to see family.

I've been working at Tisseront Orthodontics for six years! I love my job because I help people have a beautiful, healthy smile. Outside of work I like to spend time with my two daughters and my family.

As a clinical assistant to Dr. Tisseront, I help our patients achieve their beautiful smiles. I love everything about my job - the professionalism of our office, and getting to know our patients and helping them every day. Not many people can say that they enjoy coming to work everyday, but I do!
