Dr. Amanda Romsa, the owner of District Orthodontics, grew up in Wisconsin and practiced in Chicago before moving to Washington, DC. She has now been a proud Capitol Hill resident since 2013 and is honored to provide excellent care for members of her community. She also wants to support her neighborhood. For every patient who starts treatment, District Orthodontics will provide the local nonprofit Little Lights with a backpack filled with school supplies to give to an up-and-coming student in our neighborhood.

Dr. Romsa graduated from the University of Wisconsin (Go Badgers!) with a B.S. in Biochemistry. Her undergraduate achievements earned her the Dean’s Merit Scholarship to attend the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. Upon graduating from dental school, Dr. Romsa was inducted into the prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society, which is for students who have demonstrated exemplary traits of professional character and academic excellence. After dental school, Dr. Romsa continued her education at the University of Minnesota Orthodontic Residency Program. During her specialty training, she gained significant experience in treating craniofacial anomalies and surgical patients.

Dr. Romsa is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, the Middle Atlantic Society of Orthodontists, and the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce. For fun, Dr. Romsa enjoys singing in the Capitol Hill Chorale, cycling, traveling, cleaning up her neighborhood with the Capitol Hill Clean Up Crew, and spending time with her husband and son.


Did You Know?

Dr. Romsa loves cycling! While studying at UPenn and UMinn, she raced with the cycling teams. She has also ridden across the country (from Portsmouth, NH to Vancouver, BC) to raise money and awareness for affordable housing with Bike and Build.

Best Day of Her Life

The best day of her life, aside from her wedding day and when her son was born (on Christmas, by the way!), was when she finally decided to start her own practice. Today, she continues to be very excited and looks forward to making a positive impact on her community.

Community Involvement

We love Dr. Romsa. She is such a nice and friendly doctor! Very professional and caring. My daughter had very crooked teeth that made her feel very insecure about smiling. But that changed as soon as Dr. Romsa put her braces on. Her teeth got straight very fast, which brought a lot of happiness to my child. For that, I’m so grateful.
