Meet Dr. Harold Fleming
Dr. Fleming is proud to welcome you and your family to our practice. He looks forward to getting to know you and sharing in your life-changing orthodontic adventure. Passionate about his work as an orthodontist, Dr. Fleming truly enjoys helping others look and feel their very best.
Dr. Fleming completed his Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry at the University of Richmond in Richmond, Virginia in 1978, and completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the Medical College of Virginia, also in Richmond, Virginia in 1982. In 1985 Dr. Fleming completed his Master of Science degree, specializing in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics at the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center in Memphis. Dr. Fleming routinely attends continuing education courses to help bring our patients up-to-date, current orthodontic care and techniques.
Featured by "Washingtonian Magazine" in 2006 as one of the Top Dentists in the Washington, DC area, Dr. Fleming has also been awarded as one of "America's Top Dentists" for his expertise in orthodontics by the Consumers' Research Council of America each successive year since 2000. Dr. Fleming is currently a member of the American Association of Orthodontics, American Dental Association, Northern Virginia Orthodontic Study Club (serving as the president in 1992), Virginia Association of Orthodontists and Southern Association of Orthodontists.
Dr. Fleming has been practicing orthodontics in Falls Church since 1985 and in Herndon since 1994. In addition to providing orthodontic care with braces, Dr. Fleming is a certified Invisalign Premier provider. Dr. Fleming has special interests in non-extraction therapy, early interceptive orthodontic therapy, Invisalign therapy, and surgical-orthodontic treatment. Dr. Fleming's philosophy is: "We treat people of all ages - kids, teens, adults, and even seniors. However, we like to encourage everyone to start their kids early in treatment so that we can help them grow and develop to have the best possible facial esthetics as well as an excellent smile. Orthodontics is a win/win for everybody! I especially enjoy seeing the self-confidence of our patients increase as they become excited about their new smiles."
Dr. Fleming is a native of Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada but has lived in Northern Virginia since 1961. He enjoys traveling, rock climbing, ice climbing, alpine climbing and mountaineering, hiking, mountain-biking, back-country skiing, alpine skiing, photography, and training at the gym.
