Patient Feature of the Month: Meet Rmaah Memon, 19 years old
At a very young age Rmaah has entered a world of medicine. Learning from her family and finding what her passion is- she set sail to Missouri, Kansas to pursue a medical degree. Giving our readers an advice worth following!
AO: Rmaah, please share with us where you go to school and what your day is like?
Rmaah: I attend medical school at the University of Missouri Kansas City. I have classes from the afternoon until late evening. Work life balance is a bit tough, but during the weekend I try to study as much as I can and hang out with friends in the city.
AO: Why did you pursue medical school? Are you planning on being a doctor?
Rmaah: I've always wanted to help people. I come from an extensive background, one of my brothers is a doctor, the other one is an attorney and my father has his Ph.D. I've always liked science and felt that I wanted to help people. I even took different classes, such as politics, but I believe it's "my calling"
AO: What about medical school do you love or dislike?
Rmaah: My school consists of a 6-year program where they combine a bachelor's degree with medical school and they do not require MCAT scores. This saves time, because you get to be finished earlier by combining the two.
AO: How has your Invisalign treatment been and your experience been with us?
Rmaah: Invisalign went well, it got a bit harder in college but easier with time and routine. I like that it's better than braces. I feel Dr. Kortam has a friendly personality and really cares for her patients.
AO: Any word of wisdom you could give our readers?
Rmaah: An advice I can give to people is "whatever your dream is...whatever your passion is- work hard and you'll get there"
We wish Rmaah a successful semester and many more to come. We hope she will practice in the area and care for our loved ones and our community. Best of luck!!!
March continued with Dental Hygiene Month and Dr. Kortam visited more schools to discuss the importance of dental hygiene.
Trailside Middle School
In 2014 we sponsored Trailside Middle School's student t-shirts and the kids were so thrilled to have their logo proudly displayed. When we returned for Dental Hygiene Month, they welcomed us with great big smiles.
Keeping the excitement going!
We decided to give a quick and short quiz after the presentation at Trailside and one lucky winner got an iPad mini as a prize. Pictured on the right is VP Mr. Hanselman, Principal Mrs. Beichler, iPad winner Mackenzie, Dr. Kortam, and Nima. Congrats, Mackenzie- we hope you enjoy!
Celebrating our patients!
It was Charlie's birthday in February and like we always do, we pick a random birthday boy/girl and we celebrate in whichever way we can. We decided to surprise Charlie at Virginia Academy. Individual wrapped cupcakes with Charlie's face! We had a great time!
We love our community and will do our best to always support it. So when Mr. Kaylor of Stone Hill contacted our office to sponsor their scrimmage with a raffle item we were thrilled to do so. Our donation raised enough funds to purchase a practice field! Good luck Stone Hill Robotics Team, we wish you lots of success!
Our office contest is still going on. Go to our facebook page at www.facebook.com/ashburnorthodontics to find out how to win. We also have it listed on our instagram, follow us @ashburnorthodontics. Happy Spring!

February was National Children's Dental Health Month and Dr. Kortam was very busy visiting schools in our community to teach kids about dental hygiene and the importance of it. We were welcomed with warmth and great big smiles and had a great time with every school.
Loudoun Coop School Visit
We loved returning to Loudoun Coop School and seeing the kids remembering Dr. Kortam! She was welcomed with beautiful small smiles. The students were curious to learn more information and were very intrigued by the dinosaur that Dr. Kortam uses to teach kids about brushing and flossing.
Providence Academy- So Cheerful!
Pictured below is Dr. Kortam at Providence Academy in Leesburg, VA. Providence students
from KG to 8th grade, were full of energy and were gracious hosts. They asked lots of great questions and we were happy to be part of their learning day.
Harper Park Middle School
At Harper Park Middle School, Dr. Kortam presented to 6th & 8th graders. Many of them knew the importance of dental hygiene, but it is always a great reminder to discuss the correct ways to brush and floss.
Special Day At Creighton's Corner
Big Crowd at Discovery!
Patient Feature of the Month: Meet Ingrid Roberts, age 13
While there are many traits that make Ingrid a typical teenager who likes to shop with her sister and hang out at the beach, she is also managing a budding musical career with her family. We are so proud of her early success and pretty sure you'll enjoy learning about her band, Queens Over Kings, in the article below. Make sure you check out their website also - queensoverkingsband.com.
AO - Fill us in on all this talk of you and your band performing live in front of large audiences and possibly securing record deals in the future.
Ingrid - It's pretty cool and very exciting. Yeah, our band is receiving a lot of attention regionally. We play summer festivals and weddings all up and down the east coast and are planning to play for beach parties sponsored through Carnival Cruises in Cozumel and the Grand Caymans in October. We also have an opportunity to travel to Hollywood and meet with Chrysalis and Disney Records to audition for a potential record deal.
AO - How fun is that - Congratulations! What instruments do you specifically play?
Ingrid - I play keyboards, drums, clarinet, and lead vocals on some songs.
AO - Tell us more about the band. How did you get started?
Ingrid - The band name is Queens Over Kings and we formed in 2009. I am in the band with my four siblings and we range in ages from 11-25.
AO - What kind of music do you all play? Any favs you like most to perform?
Ingrid - We play covers of The Beatles and No Doubt and several others. We also write our own original music! I really like to play re-imagined Disney favorites.
AO - Ok, so when you aren't leading the life of a young pop star, what are you doing? What are your favorite subjects at school? Any thought to what career, other than music, you'd like to pursue?
Ingrid - I go to Farmwell Station Middle and I really like math. I am also a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. And I think I'd like to be a forensic pathologist as a career. But music will always be important to me. And a long term goal linked to that would be to get a record deal. Maybe in 2015!
AO - The last question that I ask everyone is what you like most about Ashburn Orthodontics?
Ingrid - I love how special I am treated here. I love that I can pick different colors for my bands each visit. And I love the happy and upbeat atmosphere in the office.
We would like to wish Ingrid, the entire Roberts family and band a busy and fantastic summer, with all the touring. And we'll be following the band for that record deal on the horizon. We hope that when Ingrid is accepting her Grammy award, she remembers her friends at Ashburn Orthodontics!
