Dr. Michael Sawaf graduated from Boston University where he remains a member of the Boston University Dental Alumni Association. He practiced general dentistry for 8 years as a former Naval Officer in the Dental Corps. From 2001-2004, he served as an assistant director of the general practice residency program at The Naval Medical Center San Diego. From there he went on to complete his orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics residency at Jacksonville University where he received a Certificate of Advanced Studies in Orthodontics.

Dr. Sawaf enjoys staying on the cutting edge of orthodontics and believes in precision orthodontic care from the first consultation to the final results. His goal is to not only straighten teeth, but to make someone’s smile a perfect complement to their overall facial appearance.
When not practicing dentistry, he enjoys running, swimming, coaching YMCA youth league and plays golf when the opportunity arises.
