  • From the time I made my first appointment with the Sherrards, braces installed, post checkup and then to present day, I felt like I was treated with the upmost respect and integrity. I felt as if I was part of their family. We had many laughs through the process and the staff is totally amazing. I recommend the Sherrard’s constantly! Thank you for the great transformation!

Meet The Doctors

With over 35 years of combined experience as orthodontic specialists in Saint John, Dr. Fraser and Dr. John are both proud to be “FROM NB…FOR NB”! This father and son team spent their earliest years in Miramichi, NB and during their training they have lived in and visited multiple cities across Canada and  the United States.  For both of our orthodontists however, there is no place like home!  The choice to come back to Saint John was made easy by the Maritime hospitality that is unique to our beautiful region (and in particular the friendliness of Saint Johners)!

Meet the team

“In all my years, this is by far the best overall group of people I’ve ever worked with. It is great working with people who are all competent, kind and caring”. (Dr. Fraser Sherrard, June 2015). We strive to make your orthodontic treatment a comfortable and enjoyable experience! From your complimentary consultation until the day you get your new smile, you’ll be able to get to know the people we are honoured to call our Sherrard team.

Treatment Coordinator/Certified Dental Assistant

“Use your brain!” Haha. This is one of the best pieces of advice I got since becoming a DA in 2012. Although it was funny at the time, it actually inspired me to join the Sherrard team in 2014. I enjoy the challenges of an ortho office and love meeting new people every day. I’m a mother of a beautiful daughter and love spending time with my family, friends and Netflix.

Lori Clark-Sealy
Laboratory Technician

I like to remind Dr. Fraser that I’ve been here almost as long as him! I graduated from N.S.I.T. and joined Dr. Sherrard in 1994. You might not see me as often because I’m busy making custom retainers, colorful orthodontic appliances, and more in the lab (also known as CBC radio central!). I enjoy spending time with my husband, daughter and two very entertaining dogs.

Office Receptionist

I was born in Belgium and moved to Canada when I was 7 years old. I have a “Big Italian” family and happy to say that I have a second family here at Sherrard Orthodontics. I attended Business Community College and have been part of the Sherrard team since 2001. Mother of 3 boys and 2 grandkids, and in my spare time I…wait, what’s spare time??? Haha.

Financial Coordinator

A little secret about me….I have been granted the super power of making your dreams a reality. It’s my job to make sure any suggested treatment works with your budget. I’m a mom of three amazing kids, and my friends and family know me as the Budget Queen, so I know that at the end of the day every penny counts!

Certified Dental Assistant

GO HABS GO! I love working in the clinic and making patients feel at home (unless you are a Bruins or Maple Leafs fan!). Haha. I’ve been with the Sherrard team since 2001 and when I’m not at the office (which is rare!), I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and two dogs. I love hiking, and camping…oh did I mention I’m a HABS fan!?

Certified Dental Assistant

I joined the Sherrard team in 2014, and in my first year I successfully replaced myself with my twin sister during an entire morning meeting (April Fools!). I love working in the clinic and enjoy working with so many great people. When I’m not at work, my spare time is usually spent with friends and family or shopping for things I don’t need.

Treatment Coordinator/Certified Dental Assistant

I have been a certified DA since 2005 and joined the Sherrards in 2011. You will most likely see me at your first visit to the office! Even though you may not be able to see me every time you visit, you will probably always be able to hear me! Lol. In my spare time you will find me as a modern day Mary Poppins!


Drs. John and Fraser Sherrard were both certified in 2006 to provide Invisalign…a clear alternative to braces. They have since earned the official designation of VIP: DIAMOND Status– Invisalign’s highest ranking available and as of 2018 are the Maritimes #1 ranked Invisalign providers.

Not only is Sherrard Orthodontics ranked in the top 1% of practices in North America by Invisalign, they are now the FIRST and ONLY Orthodontic team in the MARITIMES to achieve the brand new, even higher status of VIP: DIAMOND – Invisalign’s highest ranking possible for 2018.

This is mainly due to advancements in Invisalign technologies that have allowed us to be able to treat increasingly complex cases (while still providing you with the quality results you expect from a ‘Sherrard smile’). Since nearly everyone at our office who is a candidate for braces is also a candidate for Invisalign, you have more choices to help you be confident in your smile. Sherrard Orthodontics does not ‘upcharge’ for Invisalign, so braces and Invisalign cost the same at our office.


The Invisalign® System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign® aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign® is right for you. After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign® uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions in a sequence of finely calibrated aligners — as few as 12 or as many as 48. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually — week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you’ll be smiling like you never have before!
There are no metal brackets or wires to tighten. The clear aligners are virtually invisible to other people so no one will notice you are wearing the aligners. The aligners are also removable, which means you can eat what you want, brush your teeth with ease and floss with no problems. With the complete, virtual treatment plan, you can see the anticipated results before even starting your treatment. Since you have a series of aligners instead of metal wires and brackets, you actually need to go to our office less often to get adjustments.
Using modern 3-D imaging technology, a custom set of aligners is made for you. Every two weeks, you switch to new aligners. As you switch aligners, your teeth gradually and comfortably shift, resulting in a beautiful smile. Our doctors will have you come by the office every six weeks to confirm the progress of your treatment. On average, you will be in treatment for 9 – 15 months and wear 18 – 30 different aligners. However, actual treatment times will depend on your particular case.


At Sherrard Orthodontics, we are known for our TRULY flexible and affordable payment plans. We strongly believe that finances should not be a barrier to receiving orthodontic care. Our 0% in house financing along with zero down payment and low monthly payments options, allow us to customize a plan for almost any budget. In addition, we offer fee reductions for multiple family members and paid in full arrangements, and also direct bill your insurance for you.

Why do we do all of this? TO MAKE IT WORK FOR YOU!
