February 2, 2021


Dr. Sahira Kortam has a unique orthodontic practice. 

Ashburn Orthodontics’ tagline is “It’s all about your smile.” Dr. Kortam delivers on that promise by providing high quality care coupled with deep patient connections. That means the latest in orthodontic technology but also strong relationships with each and every patient. The proof is in the 300 five-star Google reviews she’s received over the past few years.

Dr. Kortam is also unique in that she has created a team of strong women to support her. From the front desk to the treatment coordination, Ashburn Orthodontics is fueled by smart, driven female professionals. Under Dr. Kortam’s direction these women excel at providing above-and-beyond patient care, endless in-office fun, surprises, engaging activities and events (even COVID-safe ones nowadays). 

While she maintains a bustling orthodontic practice, Dr. Kortam and her husband are also raising their four children, a son… and triplets(!!!) Needless to say, she’s busy on all fronts but manages to keep everything running smoothly due to her high level of organization, attention to detail and caring approach.
