Demonstrating longstanding commitment to dental health and orthodontic excellence, Dr. Justin Hughes has completed rigorous training and follows the legacy of his family in superior dental and orthodontic care.
Having received his bachelor's degree from Wake Forest University (Go Deacs!), his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree from Virginia Commonwealth University (Go Rams!), and his Master's in Orthodontics from the University of Iowa (Go Hawks!) he has had outstanding academic preparation (even remaining committed to his school colors of Black and Gold throughout his training!).
In addition, Dr. Justin also completed a one-year dental residency at St. Barnabas Hospital in New York City prior to beginning his orthodontic residency in Iowa.
Dr. Justin Hughes is a diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. While all orthodontists have to be licensed and complete residency, less than 30% of all Orthodontists are board certified.
Dr. Justin was recently published in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics (AJODO) and is a Key Opinion Leader and national speaker for 3M Oral Care.
Continuing the tradition of his dedicated family, Dr. Justin is a 3rd generation orthodontist and 4th generation dentist. He is grateful and proud to join his father in carrying on the legacy of Hughes Orthodontics: creating beautiful smiles and providing excellent care to patients in Alexandria since 1958.
