Dr Sandra Selnick

Dr Sandra Selnick

Dr. Sandra Selnick is dedicated to staying on the cutting edge of innovative orthodontic treatment to provide the best possible treatment results for her patients. Dr. Selnick takes pride in “creating beautiful smiles for all ages” using the latest advancements in orthodontic technology.

As the daughter of a pediatric dentist and a pediatrician, Dr. Selnick was bound to work as a medical professional too! She graduated with a Bachelor of Science (BS) from the University of Miami before earning her doctoral degree in dentistry (DDS) from the University of Maryland where she graduated with special recognition from the American Association of Orthodontists. After completing a hospital-based General Practice Residency with the VA Medical Center in Baltimore, Dr. Selnick's interest in orthodontics led her back to the University of Maryland for three years of specialty training resulting in a Certificate in Orthodontics. She concurrently pursued her research in orthodontic computer analysis, earning a Master (MS) in Oral Biology.

Before joining the OX Orthodontix team, Dr. Selnick was in private practice and worked as a staff orthodontist at Children's Hospital at Washington Hospital Center. Now she is a wonderful addition to the team of orthodontists at OX and has been a leader in using Invisalign to treat most of the patients that come to our offices.

Dr. Selnick is also dedicated to giving back to her community and her strong ties in the Howard County area are a source of pride in Dr. Selnick's professional and private life. When she is not in the office, Dr. Selnick is active in her two children's school activities and cheers them on in swimming competitions throughout the state.

Outside of the office, Dr. Derakhshan enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, exploring the outdoors, and watching a romantic comedy movie every once in a while.

Dr Ross Aronson

Dr Ross Aronson

Please welcome Dr. Ross Aronson to OX OrthodontiX!

Dr. A wants to give you more reasons to smile. He is obsessed with orthodontic excellence and is passionate about the patient ‘experience’.

Dr. A graduated #1 in his class with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at Columbia University. He pursued his Orthodontic Specialty training at the University of North Carolina, which is one of the nation’s most prestigious orthodontic residencies, earning his Master of Science Degree at the same time. He is a member of the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honor Society, was honored with the American Academy of Oral Medicine Award, and the American Association of Oral Biologists Award. Dr. A is an active inventor and has earned two patents in the dental/orthodontic fields, with a third patent pending. Yes, he is super smart.

“The combination of cutting-edge technology, a dedicated focus on every patient’s comfort, and a positive attitude is what drew me to OX OrthodontiX,” says Dr. Aronson. “The team and community here are second to none, and I am thrilled to be a part of it!”

When Dr. Aronson is not thinking about ways to make people happier and their teeth healthier, he is likely focusing on either fitness or nutrition; so, be prepared to run into him and his wife at the Columbia Association Gym or in Whole Foods: two of their favorite spots in Howard County! In fact, Dr. Aronson worked as a personal trainer during his years as an undergraduate student and taught himself how to cook as a teen. If it’s on Food Network, he’s either seen it or tried it! We can’t wait for summer to see what he cooks up with Dr. Selnick’s veggies from her garden!
