Meet Dr. Phil Philbin, an Orthodontist on Kent Island

Sponsored Editorial provided by Philbin & Reinheimer Orthodontists.

When people are comfortable with their smiles, they project confidence. I love watching our patients go from self-conscious to being extremely sure of themselves. Sometimes orthodontic treatment can be life changing, and that is why I love what I do!

I completed my undergraduate education at Dickinson College in 1981. After graduating with honors, I attended the University of Maryland Dental School of Surgery, where I was selected for membership in several honorary societies and graduated with honors in 1986. Immediately following dental school, I was accepted for one of three positions for the University of Maryland Postgraduate program, where I graduated once again with honors.

I received the University of Maryland Postgraduate Orthodontic Program’s Award of Excellence; the program’s highest honor! Upon graduation, I have continued my commitment to education and excellence. In 1998, I passed the American Board of Orthodontics’ board certification program and became a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics as well as a member of the American Association College of Diplomates. This certification is optional, and it is a very difficult and very time-consuming accomplishment that takes many years. It is the Association of Orthodontists’ highest level of achievement. Only a small percentage of orthodontists ever achieve this certification.

I believe that education and the pursuit of excellence is a lifelong endeavor. I continue to train internationally under the top professionals in the field of dentistry and orthodontics.PhilPhilbin
Locally, I am an active member of the Maryland State Association of Orthodontics, the Maryland State Dental Society, the Anne Arundel Dental Society, the Annapolis Dental Study Club, the Annapolis Master’s Study Club, and the Advance Orthodontic Group (AOG).

My patients are also my neighbors, my children’s classmates, even local dentists! Orthodontics is treatment that occurs over several months, sometimes even years. This allows us to watch our patients go through life experiences that range from a middle school growth spurt to having Senior photos taken with killer smiles!

Our team is comprised of doctors, clinical assistants and office administrators. There is a high level of professionalism in all areas. There is also consistent positive energy! Our goal is to make your treatment a rewarding and positive experience. After 22 years of practicing orthodontics, we still just want to have fun! We keep the office stocked with the latest movies, so that as you recline in the dental chair, you can relax and watch a movie. And we do away with that sleepy dental office music! With some censorship, we play top 40 hits in our practice. It’s a rockin’ good time!

Philbin and Reinheimer Orthodontics is located at 101 St. Claire Place, Suite 104 in Stevensville and 802 Bestgate Road, Suite B in Annapolis. Contact us for more information: 410-263-5600 or www.marylandbraces.com.
