meet dr britney welchelDr. Britney Welchel, DMD, M.S.

Considered one of the country’s top leaders in the field of orthodontics, Dr. Britney Welchel is more than just a crafter of beautiful smiles. She is a published author, international award-winning researcher, dedicated speaker, and most of all a proud wife and mother. Providing exceptional service and clinical expertise to her patients is of utmost importance.

Dr. Welchel began her dental journey after a sports accident in high school left her with two avulsed teeth. As a teenager fresh out of braces herself, she fell in love with orthodontics after being exposed to the intricacies of the profession. Today, after years of education, collaboration with others in her field, and continued learning, Dr. Welchel is at the forefront of orthodontic technology and techniques.

The Milo Hellman, an honor given to only one orthodontist annually by the American Association of Orthodontists, was awarded to Dr. Welchel for her innovative research on corticotomies, which provided new and significant material of value to the art and science of orthodontics. The corticotomy procedure is a means of accelerating orthodontic tooth movement; Dr. Welchel specifically studied bone grafting used during the technique and presented her research at the American Association of Orthodontists annual session.

Dr. Welchel was also recently presented the “Making a Difference” accolade by her orthodontic piers for her outstanding dedication and commitment to orthodontic excellence, devotion to clinical care, research, and scholarship, thus setting high standards for others to live up to. To Dr. Welchel, this is the utmost honor as it demonstrates her continued passion to better her patients, her community, and her profession.


Dr. Welchel is a proud alumnus of Furman University. She graduated number one in her dental school class at the Medical University of South Carolina, then went on to complete a three-year residency in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics at Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry, where she was awarded the best-treated case in her class. To this day, Dr. Welchel continues to teach the orthodontic residents at Baylor. As a board-certified orthodontist, Dr. Welchel has achieved a status that only one in three orthodontists nationwide has accomplished. She and her team at Burrow and Welchel Orthodontics have been voted “Best in Charlotte” for years for their dedication to orthodontic excellence.
