Dr. Wirant completed his orthodontic residency at the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine in 1998. While establishing his own orthodontic practice in Royersford, PA, Dr. Wirant worked at several multi-doctor practices in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

He has most recently completed extensive courses on Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics, TADs (temporary anchorage devices), and 3-D X-ray imaging.
Dr. Wirant is one of the few Diplomates of the American Board of Orthodontics in the area. This means that Dr. Wirant is board certified, which testifies to his pursuit of continued proficiency and excellence. He is also a member of the Pennsylvania State Dental Society, the American Dental Association, the Mid-Eastern Society of Orthodontists, and the American Association of Orthodontists. He has been practicing orthodontics in his Royersford office since 2000.
Presently, Dr. Wirant resides in Oaks, Pennsylvania, with his wife and four children.
To become an orthodontist takes a minimum of 10 years. There is undergrad (BS in Chemistry for Dr. Wirant, 4 years), dental school (4 years), and then an orthodontic residency program (now 3 or 4 years).
After that, an orthodontist can become board certified by passing a written exam and presenting cases the orthodontist has completed to the American Board of Orthodontics. This is just one more credential that lets you know how seriously Dr. Wirant takes his profession.
