Professional Bio


Hello, I’m Stephen Tigani. I have lived in Bethesda, MD for my entire life. Being a lifelong member of the Washington community I have been involved in everything you can imagine. I coached soccer and basketball for 20 years, I have attended Church of The Little Flower since I was a kid, and I served on a number of boards and councils.  

I have been married to my beautiful bride for 27 years and we have four children whom we are incredibly proud of. My oldest daughter is Dr. Elise Tigani who is also part of the practice and I am very excited to work alongside her. The other three children are all doing great things of their own as well. My son is currently in medical school at Georgetown University, my second daughter just graduated with her Masters degree in Engineering, and my youngest daughter is currently studying psychology at Loyola University Chicago.

I have always been committed to providing patients with the best possible orthodontic care in the Washington area. After 25 years in practice, I have found that orthodontics is truly both an art and a science. Many things have changed in that time but I am always excited to explore advances in technology and offer the newest treatments to our patients. Every child, teen, and adult is different and each one deserves the time and attention it takes to give them a healthy, happy smile that lasts a lifetime.
