Dr. Sherwin


Dr. Ted Sherwin has practiced general dentistry in Orange, Virginia since 1985. His goal is to treat each of his

patients with kindness, respect, and a gentle touch.  He is known for his treatment of patients in need of complete

restorative procedures such as partial and full mouth restorations with emphasis on cosmetic implants and function

that are in tune with the mouth and it's neuromuscular system.

Dr. Sherwin graduated from VCU School of Dentistry and received additional education at the Pankey Institute,

studying under the world-renowned lecturer and author, Dr. Pete Dawson.

Prestigiously honored by his peers:

  •     Fellow Of The American College of Dentists

  •     Fellow Of The Pierre Fuchard Academy
  •     Fellow Of The Virginia Dental Association

Dr. Sherwin is a proud member of the ADA and currently serves a three year term as the Treasurer of the American Dental Association.

His strong desire to elicit change at every level, pushes him to ensure that access to care, financial responsibility and nation wide

involvement, is front and center. This position, although multifaceted, enables him to really focus on the future of dentistry

and how to secure forthcoming, projected scenarios in light of an unpreceded pandemic.

Dr. Sherwin's previous experience in the Virginia Dental Association includes the Association's outreach programs to

help the underserved, and many leadership positions.  In 2013-2014, he served as President of the Virginia Dental

Association, and has also previously served as State Chair of Rules and Regulations, Annual Meeting, Budget and

Finance, and was elected to two terms as President of the Shenandoah Valley Dental Association.

He has also served a four year term as Secretary-Treasurer of the VDA.  Nationally, Dr. Sherwin was also on several

Trustee Finance committees, as well as the Strategic Planning Committee for the American Dental Association.

While serving as President of the Virginia Academy of Dentistry, Dr. Sherwin credits his fellow board members for

Virginia being awarded it's first "Constituent of the Year" award, along with four other awards.  With the

encouragement from the Virginia Academy, he was elected to serve as AGD Regional Director, Chair of Regional

Directors, and national Trustee and Chair of Future's Committee.  In addition to Trustee, he has served nationally as

Chair and Co-author of the AGD's "White Paper on Access to Care" where his extensive experience of service to the

underprivileged in rural Virginia helped to better understand the issues and barriers for dental care in locations that

treat numbers of children and adults alike in need of dental treatment.

Dr. Sherwin's pursuit of excellence and treatment of his patients is well known, as is his commitment to helping those

in need.  Over the last thirty years, he has treated thousands of children in his community through the "Smiles for

Children" program.  He, his staff, and family have continued their mission work participating in Mission of

Mercy projects in South West Virginia.  Additionally, he has served his community through Rotary, the Library Board,

and the School Board.

Dr. Sherwin's other passions are his family ~ Suzanne, wife of 33 years, his son, Dean, and niece

Helen, who all work at the office (a true family practice!); reading, travel; and photography.  Dr. Sherwin's travel

photography has been displayed on thirteen national professional journals, the front page of the ADA News, and in

numerous publications associated with nearby Montpelier, home of James and Dolly Madison.  He and his son, Dean,

are both Master Level SCUBA divers and love the excitement and adventure of life underwater almost as much as his

chosen profession!
