Dr. Nitika Mittal, DDS Orthodontist
Dr. Nitika Mittal loves helping to give her patients a beautiful smile. She is passionate about orthodontics because she not only enjoys the challenges of straightening teeth and correcting jaw alignment, she also feels privileged and honored in helping people develop the confidence and self-esteem that comes along with having a great smile.
Dr. Mittal is a Board eligible orthodontist. After spending four years at the University of Virginia, she received her DDS degree from Virginia Commonwealth University, School of Dentistry. Afterwards, she moved to the Midwest to complete a residency in Orthodontics at Indiana University School of Dentistry, where she earned a Masters degree in Dentistry and a Certificate in Orthodontics. Dr. Mittal is glad to be back in her home state, where she is now able to serve the patients in her community.
Dr. Mittal is grateful to have had the opportunity to volunteer her dental services at several Mission of Mercy projects in under-served areas of Virginia. She is active in maintaining continuing education by participating with the American Association of Orthodontics, the Southern Association of Orthodontists, the Northern Virginia Orthodontic Study Club, the American Dental Association, the Virginia Dental Association, and the Northern Virginia Dental Society.
Dr. Mittal is a proud Virginian! She was born and raised in the DC metropolitan area, and continues to live there with her husband. Outside of practicing orthodontics, she spends her time working out, traveling, watching sports & new movies, trying different restaurants, and making lots of memories with her family.
