Dr. Britney Welchel
Considered one of the country’s top leaders in the field of orthodontics, I am more than just a crafter of beautiful smiles. I am a published author, an internationally award-winning researcher, a dedicated speaker, and most of all a proud wife and mother. Providing exceptional service and clinical expertise to our patients is of utmost importance.
I began my dental journey after a sports accident in high school left me with two avulsed teeth. As a teenager fresh out of braces myself, I fell in love with orthodontics after being exposed to the intricacies of the profession. Today, after years of education, collaboration with others in the field, and continued learning, I am at the forefront of orthodontic technology and techniques.
I was awarded the Milo Hellman, an honor given to only one orthodontist annually by the American Association of Orthodontists, for my 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; I specifically studied bone grafting used during the technique and presented my research at the American Association of Orthodontists annual session.
I was also recently presented the “Making a Difference” accolade by my orthodontic peers for my 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 me, this is the utmost honor as it demonstrates my continued passion to better our patients, our community, and our profession.
I am a proud alumnus of Furman University. I graduated number one in my 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 I was awarded the best-treated case in my class. To this day, I continue to teach the orthodontic residents at Baylor. As a board-certified orthodontist, I have achieved a status that only one in three orthodontists nationwide has accomplished. Our team at Burrow, Welchel & Culp Orthodontics has been voted “Best in Charlotte” for years for our dedication to orthodontic excellence.
