DR. BRITTANY SWIDERSKI

Dr. Brittany Swiderski received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology and Psychology at Stony Brook University, and her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine in Buffalo, New York. She attended University of Detroit Mercy School of Dental Medicine for her Master of Science and Certificate in Orthodontics. Dr. Swiderski’s orthodontic training included a focus on the airway dimensions and growth. She spent two years completing data collection on the height, width, and depth of the upper airway and evaluated the changes during treatment and growth of orthodontic patients which she presented as her master’s thesis upon graduation. During her dental education, Dr. Swiderski received the American Association of Orthodontics Award, Edwin C Jauch Award, and the Lindsey O. Kesling Award which recognized orthodontic residents who have devoted their extracurricular time to humanitarian and volunteer efforts.  She has travelled both nationally and internationally providing dental care to underserved communities such as those in Buffalo, Memphis, Senegal and in the Dominican Republic. Dr. Swiderski is an active member of the American Association of Orthodontics, and the American Dental Association, and is Board certified by the American Board of Orthodontics.
 
After experiencing braces twice, once as a child and once as an adult, Dr. Swiderski is familiar with both the struggles and successes of orthodontic treatment and wants to help everyone achieve the smile they’ve dreamed of.   “My favorite part of orthodontics is solving the puzzle,” she tells us. “Everyone’s case is unique, depending on their dentition, skeletal relationship, airway and many other components. It's essential to take all those parts and design a treatment plan and a timeline that leads to success for each individual.”Outside of orthodontics, Dr. Swiderski can be found playing ice hockey, making Tik-Toks with friends and family, or exploring Arkansas behind the lens of her camera.

After spending much of her life on the East Coast, Dr. Swiderski decided to escape the snowstorms and short summers for a new adventure. The first time she visited Northwest Arkansas, she saw the green trees, met the friendliest people and felt she had found home. Northwest Arkansas is not where she’s from, but she strongly feels like it’s where she’s meant to be. Dr. Swiderski is looking for guidance on the best parts of NWA, so be sure to share your tips for her to explore her new home!
