Meet Our Doctor

Dr. Emike Aliu
of Elite Orthodontics

” I absolutely love what I do.”

As part of my job, I meet a variety of people and help put smiles on their faces. I particularly love seeing the progression from the start of treatment to the end.

The joy patients express in being able to smile bigger and wider every day as corrections are being made is contagious. I’m extremely honored to have the opportunity to provide such a service.

The relationships I build with patients and their families during the course of treatment usually lasts a lifetime. Providing treatment for one member of the family usually opens the door to other family members and friends. I always look forward to strengthening such relationships by meeting more people and their families. We at Elite Orthodontics strive in promoting such Positivity and growth.

I attended the University of Illinois for both my undergraduate and Dental education. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology for my undergraduate education, and obtained my Doctorate of Dental Surgery while still in Chicago. I completed my two-year Orthodontic training at Howard University in the Nation’s capital. I have been in a private practice exclusively practicing Orthodontics.

I worked as an Orthodontist in a private group practice prior to opening Elite Orthodontics. I was fortunate enough to be able to provide treatment for patients from varied demographic backgrounds. I stay up to date on current treatment modalities and technologies. Being on the forefront in technological advancement in my profession helps me provide patients with the most up to date treatment options especially in a world were more esthetic treatment options are in-demand. I usually spend a great deal of time attending various continuing educational learning opportunities.

I love to spend time with my family, friends and my dog Ruby, a cocker spaniel-poodle mix. As an adult transplant to the Washington, DC area, I spend time navigating and exploring the hidden treasures of the area. Museums, monuments, statutes, you name it. If you can take a picture of it, I probably have a picture in front of it! I also love to travel, and try new cuisines. If it’s a meal in some culture, I don’t mind trying it. I’m pretty partial to pastries.
