He received both his orthodontic specialty training and his MS degree in Oral Biology from Baylor University in 1992.

Dr. Wiger is recognized and appreciated for his excellence in orthodontics as well as the gentle and compassionate care of his patients. He has been named over and over again as one of the area's top orthodontists by Washingtonian Magazine, Northern Virginia Magazine, Family Magazine and Virginia Living Magazine.

Over the last 23 years, he has started and completed thousands of orthodontic cases with dazzling results.

He has also served as an orthodontic advisor to the Greater Loudoun Study Club, a consortium of dental professionals committed to providing excellent dental care in Northern Virginia.

In May of 2016, Dr. Wiger sold Wiger Orthodontics to spend more time with his family and to focus on direct patient care rather than running a large orthodontic practice. As a testimony to Dr. Wiger's reputation and work ethic most of his staff members had been with him for over a decade, some as long as 17 years. He came to Kingstowne Orthodontics in October of 2016 and we are very fortunate to have such an esteemed and recognized orthodontist to treat our patients.

Dr. Wiger replaces our former popular and talented orthodontist, Dr. Frances Hamman. After 11 years as our sole orthodontist, she moved back home to Ohio to help care for her ailing father. Dr. Hamman worked closely with Dr. Wiger in transition, to assure that he was familiar with all of her individual patients and the specifics of their cases.

Most offices require you to visit one office for the surgical placement of the implant and another office to place the crown on the implant once it has healed. Dr. Lee's training and expertise enable him to perform both of the procedures right here, in most cases, without the need for an outside referral. Dr. Lee is also proficient in bone grafting, extractions, periodontal surgery, root canals and removable dentures as well as cosmetic dentistry and crowns.

Impressively, Dr. Lee was awarded this title after only three years of practice, whereas most dentists never attain this goal, or if they do, it is after many more years of practice. Dr. Lee is also listed in the "Guide to America's Top Dentists."
