Meet Dr. Tanya Glidden

Tanya Glidden, DMD, MS

I love what I do, and I look forward to coming to work each and every day. I enjoy being able to help my patients attain beautiful, healthy smiles that will last the rest of their lives. At the end of treatment, my patients love to smile, and I can’t imagine anything better than that!

Education and Continuing Education

In order to become an orthodontist, I attended the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine, where I attained my DMD. I then graduated from the Medical College of Virginia with my Master’s Degree and Orthodontic Certificate.

Because orthodontics is continually changing with new technology and methods, I know how important continuing education is to providing the highest quality treatments for my patients. As a part of my continuing studies, I am a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, the Maine Dental Association, The York County Dental Society and the Northeastern Society of Orthodontists.   I am currently president of the York County Dental Society.

Professional Dedication

I am able to use my education, knowledge and skills to help each patient attain a smile that is beautiful and healthy. Every person is different, and each treatment I provide is unique. This makes my job both challenging and incredibly rewarding.

As their smiles change, I can see my patients become more self-confident and happier. I love making personal connections with each person who comes to visit, and they all become part of the Atlantic Orthodontic family. After more than ten years in practice, I have been lucky enough to make some wonderful friendships with people in our community.

I am proud of what I do, and happy to say our patients have a good time here! Kids love our “orthobucks” rewards program, and adult patients appreciate our kind and gentle nature. Whole families often come in for treatment, and though everyone has a different experience, I can see how much they enjoy coming to see us!

Family Life

I grew up in Andover, MA, and have lived in Kennebunk since 2001. I love being part of such a wonderful community! I have three sons named Kai, Berk and Graem, my husband and I enjoy spending time outdoors with them.  I love snowboarding, skiing, running, practicing yoga and participating in triathlons. I also love to sail vintage sailboats around coastal Maine! I care about our community, and regularly volunteer at a community dental clinic in Biddeford.
