Meet Dr. Nancy Ward

nancy_ward_ddsDentistry is the best career in the world. It enables me to help my patients improve their overall health and gives me the skills to help those in need. I love seeing how happy my patients are when they realize that a trip to the dentist doesn’t have to be a stressful experience. The past 30 years have been amazing and I hope to serve the people in my community with the best dental care possible for many more years to come.


The education I received has given me a strong foundation to build a practice based on trust and honesty. I graduated from the University of Maryland with my Bachelor of Science degree in 1977 and continued on to the University of Maryland Baltimore College of Dental Surgery where I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery.

Continuing Education

The field of dentistry is constantly changing, and I continue my education through numerous seminars and courses in all disciplines of dentistry. I have earned a Mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry and have gained the status of Premier Provider for Invisalign. By staying involved in the greater dental community, I am able to share what I have learned over the past 30 years with dentists from all over the world!

Family Life

I am a native of Baltimore and currently reside in Sherwood Forest. I love spending time with my family, my husband, Denny, our daughters, Devon and Lucy, our son, Jedediah, and our family dog, Palmer. When I’m not in the office I enjoy playing golf and tennis and boating.

Our family has been coming to this dental and orthodontic office for many years. We always appreciate the pleasant staff and cheery atmosphere. All of the dentists are gentle, kind, and professional. We could not be more grateful for the care we have received and highly recommend this practice.

Many Thanks, Tracy D.
