Dr. Mark and Dr. Erik Higginbottom are Phi Beta Kappa graduates of Syracuse University and Western Maryland College, respectively, both majoring in Biology. After Dr. Mark Higginbottom received his dental degree at the University of Pennsylvania and Dr. Erik Higginbottom received his education at the University of Maryland, they both attended University of Maryland Dental School for their post-graduate training in Orthodontics. During that portion of their education, they became well trained in the treatment of all types of malocclusions, including patients with cleft lips/cleft palates, patients requiring oral surgery to correct their jaw malalignments, and patients requiring treatment in conjunction with other dental specialists (periodontists, endodontists, prosthodontists, and oral surgeons). Those years of education have formed an extensive base for the services they now provide. Both doctors have returned to their alma mater to help teach orthodontics to the pre-doctoral students along with the post-graduate residents completing their training in orthodontics. With over 40 years of combined clinical experience, both doctors are well versed in traditional orthodontics, the Damon System, clear aligner therapy (Invisalign), clear braces, the Herbst appliance, and many others.


Continuing education is a high priority to both Dr. Mark and Dr. Erik Higginbottom. They participate in continuing education as a way of offering the best, most effective treatments to their patients and staying up-to-date with current orthodontic products and techniques. They routinely participate in study clubs and attend conferences across the nation.

The team at Higginbottom Orthodontics feels that involvement in their community is essential. They support church activities, coach sports teams, participate in community theater, as well as assist the youth of their community in activities such as 4-H. With both doctors growing up in Easton, MD, they feel that being an orthodontist is a great way to give back to the community that has given them so much over the years.

At Higginbottom Orthodontics, personal interactions with patients are endearing to watch, and their team strives to make each visit special. You will find their interest in their patients, their devotion to patient needs, and their wonderful rapport with them all amazing. The team at Higginbottom Orthodontics will go out of their way to support their patients. Dr. Mark and Dr. Erik Higginbottom’s people skills and their approach to each patient are impressive! They love working with all of their patients and watching as their smiles and confidence transform with each treatment they receive.
