Dr. Gregory Sanford

D.M.D., M.Sc. D., P.C.

Dr. Sanford received his D.M.D. with high honors from the University of Pennsylvania and his Certificate in Orthodontics and Master’s Degree in Science from Boston University's School of Dental Medicine. He is Board certified by the American Board of Orthodontics. Before opening his office in Wilton Center in 1987, he was a partner at a highly-esteemed New York City practice in Midtown for over 10 years. He was also on staff at New York Hospital/Cornell Medical Center where he treated complex skeletal cases that often required orthognathic surgery.

Dr. Sanford treats children of all ages and prefers a conservative, non-extraction approach to treatment whenever possible. A large percentage of his practice are adults who suffer from overcrowding. Most adult patients are treated using miniature lingual brackets (attached to the back of the teeth) over a 6-9 month expedited treatment time.

When not creating beautiful smiles, he enjoys spending time with his wife and blended family of eight children, 3 cats, and one golden retriever. He loves traveling and tasting the food around the world and considers himself a classic car enthusiast. You'd be surprised to learn he can play the guitar and sing too. He loves to show his support to non-profit organizations (especially those who support our youth) and frequently volunteers for a Pura Vida, a local non-profit that supports children who are orphaned and malnourished. Teeth aren't his only specialty - Dr. S is a master chef as well! Patients adore Dr. Sanford and appreciate the time he spends in his kitchen creating signature "Celebration Cakes" for them when braces are removed or treatment is completed.

Dr. Gregory W. Sanford is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. He is an active member of the American Association of Orthodontists and the New England Society of Orthodontics. Dr. Sanford was named as one of Connecticut's Top Orthodontists in Connecticut Magazine in 2018.

What is a Board Certified Orthodontist?

An orthodontist is a dentist who has not only completed a graduate program in dentistry to receive their DDS or DMD (Doctor of Dental Surgery or Doctor of Dental Medicine), but has also gone through a competitive residency at a CODA-accredited orthodontic program for an additional 2-3 years to be trained specifically in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics.

ABO Board Certification is a voluntary credential that represents an orthodontist’s personal and public commitment to the standards of specialty practice and lifelong learning. The ABO Certification process requires the completion of peer-developed, externally validated written and clinical examinations.  A Board Certified Orthodontist has reached this distinct level of achievement that goes beyond state required licensure, includes additional education and ongoing assessment, and indicates that an orthodontic specialist is upholding the standards of the credential.

Board Certification is confirmation of an orthodontist’s personal commitment to providing lifelong quality patient care. The American Board of Orthodontics is the only orthodontic specialty board recognized by the American Dental Association and in affiliation with the American Association of Orthodontists
