Meet Dr. Damon Szymanowski

Sacramento Orthodontist

A Jesuit High School graduate, Dr. Damon Szymanowski earned a degree in integrative biology from the University of California, Berkeley. During this time, he spent most of his free time in the swimming pool as a four-year Letterman on the Division I Men’s swim team.

Upon graduation in 1998, Dr. Damon Szymanowski happily set his sights east to Boston, Massachusetts where he attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine.

He knew right away that orthodontics was the best match for him! He actively participated in Smile Squad, educating elementary school students on the importance of oral health.

Taking a special interest in human anatomy, he was asked to become a gross anatomy tutor for the students in the dental program. In his four years at Tufts University, Dr. Damon Szymanowski met many life-long friends and colleagues, including a very special friend—his wife Alison.


After completing dental school in 2003, Dr. Damon Szymanowski was accepted to the University of Pennsylvania for his two-year postgraduate training in orthodontics.

At this illustrious Ivy league university, Dr. Damon Szymanowski was most fortunate to learn orthodontics under the guidance of Dr. Robert “Slick” Vanarsdale, a well-respected leader in orthodontics and periodontics worldwide. (This is the man who wrote the book on orthodontics!)

Since completing his orthodontic training in 2005, Dr. Damon Szymanowski has had the opportunity to practice with several outstanding orthodontists, including Dr. Martin Van Vliet in New York and Dr. Peter Worth in Roseville.

Your Sacramento Smile Expert

Dr. Damon Szymanowski was happy to return to his roots, to his hometown of Sacramento in 2006.

The Szymanowski name has been well known within the local dental community for more than 40 years. Dr. Szymanowski’s father, Cas, first opened his periodontic practice in 1970, and Dr. Szymanowski’s brother, Jonathan, joined the practice in 2001.

Practicing alongside his father and brother, Dr. Damon Szymanowski has been able to offer a “multi-disciplinary” approach to orthodontics, allowing for unparalleled orthodontic results.
