Bart Weis, D.D.S.

Dr.Weis_31July2015.jpgI love building relationships with patients and their families and am passionate about creating confidence and joy in our patient’s lives by creating healthy, beautiful smiles for a lifetime.

Education and Experience

I earned my Bachelor of Science degree and a Masters in Business Administration from James Madison University and my Doctor of Dental Surgery from the Medical College of Virginia and have practiced orthodontics exclusively in Charlottesville since 1996.

In addition to earning my specialty degree as an orthodontist, I am a board-certified Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, an honor held by only one-third of orthodontists in the U.S. I am also a member of the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honorary Dental Society, the American Association of Orthodontics, and the American Dental Association.

I served as President of the Charlottesville/Albemarle Dental Society, President of the Medical College of Virginia Orthodontic Foundation and on the Board of Directors of the Charlottesville Community Children’s Dental Center.

Outside the office

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three sons, traveling and exploring distant places, cheering on the UVA Hoos including at the National Championship and Final Four games in 2019, playing golf, surfing, paddleboarding and fishing.

Nancy Stranix, D.D.S.

Doctor Stranix
I absolutely love orthodontics and getting to know the people behind the smiles! It’s wonderful to have the opportunity to build relationships with our patients and their families and watch as their smiles transform over time. I love my job because it allows me to improve the health and confidence of our patients.

Education and Experience

I earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia (go Hoos!) and graduated with honors before attending dental school at Virginia Commonwealth University, graduating at the top of my class. After dental school, I completed an additional three years of specialized training in orthodontics at Montefiore Medical Center in New York, where I learned the most advanced techniques for treating both children and adults.

Before moving to Charlottesville, I practiced orthodontics in New York City and Philadelphia while my husband, JT, completed his residency in reconstructive plastic surgery. In addition to obtaining my specialty license in orthodontics, I am a board certified Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, an accomplishment attained by only about 1/3 of orthodontists in the US. In order to give the highest quality of care to our patients, I regularly attend continuing education courses to stay up to date on the latest advances in orthodontics. I am a member of the Omicron Kappa Upsilon dental honor society and the American Association of Orthodontists.

Outside the office

My husband, JT, and I met at UVA and are thrilled to be back in Charlottesville with our sweet daughter, Blair. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, cheering on our Virginia Cavaliers, and taking walks with our daughter. I love living in Charlottesville and enjoying all the restaurants, music, and fun outdoor activities it has to offer.

I look forward to helping you on your journey towards a confident, beautiful smile!
