About Northern Virginia Orthodontics

At Northern Virginia Orthodontics & Northern Virginia Orthodontics Center for Invisalign®, we truly love what we do. Our hip, energetic staff members have enthusiasm that is contagious. Our doctors are the best in the area and truly care about those they treat. Our patients can feel that from their initial phone call to the completion of treatment. It’s no surprise we’ve been recognized as a Washingtonian Top Orthodontist, as well as one of the Washingtonian’s “50 Great Places to Work.”

We are open every day during the week, and certain days have longer evening hours to fit even the busiest schedule. Drs. Casagrande and Nelson and our experienced and knowledgeable staff look forward to meeting you and your family, and getting you started on the road to a remarkable smile.


Dr. Casagrande is highly trained in the latest orthodontic techniques and treatments for pediatric, adolescent, and adult patients. These include: Invisalign®, Invisalign Teen®, and self-ligating Damon® bracket systems, which can all reduce treatment time and increase patient comfort. He is the top Invisalign Super Elite Provider in Loudoun County and the only single-location Super Elite Provider in all of Northern Virginia. He has treated more Invisalign patients than any other practice in Northern Virginia. This distinction puts Dr. Casagrande among the top 1% of Invisalign providers nationwide. Invisalign has chosen him as one of their national speakers. As a member of the VCU Craniofacial/Facial Reconstruction Team, he has had extensive experience with complex cases that require orthognathic jaw surgery.

Dr. Casagrande has been highlighted as one of the best in orthodontics by several local publications. Washingtonian Magazine and Northern Virginia Magazine have both repeatedly recognized him as one of the DC area’s Top Orthodontists. Dr. Casagrande is thrilled to have been named the Official Orthodontist of the Washington Capitals, Washington Wizards and Washington Mystics. Incisal Edge Magazine named him a leading provider nationally by honoring him as one of their Top 40 Under 40. He is also proud to have been listed by Washington Parent Magazine as one of their mom-recommended “Favorite Docs.”


A Northern Virginia native, Dr. Casagrande attended Sunrise Valley Elementary School and South Lakes High School in Reston, Virginia. After graduating from James Madison University, he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, magna cum laude, from the Medical College of Virginia (MCV).

In addition to his dental degree, Dr. Casagrande also earned Master of Science and orthodontics degrees from the Medical College of Virginia. During his studies at MCV, Dr. Casagrande received grants from Pfizer for work on his master’s thesis.
