Dr. Brandon Comella grew up in Webster, NY and graduated from R.L. Thomas Webster High. After high school, he entered the US Air Force for a four-year tour which took him from Texas to South Korea and then Mississippi. It was there he developed his passion for dentistry while working as a dental lab technician for the Air Force Dentists. He also ventured into flying and obtained his pilot’s license.
After an amazing tour in the Air Force, he transferred into RIT’s Department of Mechanical Engineering knowing this degree is a perfect for an Orthodontist. There he completed a Bachelor and Masters of Science degree in mechanical engineering while continuing to work as a dental lab technician for Roy Epstein Dental Lab in Webster.
He subsequently studied dentistry and continued his PhD in Engineering at the State University of New York in Buffalo. In 2001, he graduated from the dental program and started his career in orthodontics.
Since then he has spent time at Rochester Institute of Technology mentoring senior engineering students with developing a solution to a defined orthodontic engineering problem.
Due to his background in orthodontics and engineering he is currently a Key Opinion Leader for 3M. He has extensive background in the use of 'Behind the Teeth" braces called Incognito by 3M Unitek. He teaches orthodontists all over the country on Incognito and how to use this most cutting edge system in the world.
Locally he also lectures on Current Concepts in Diagnosis and Treatment Planning, where he demonstrates what can be done using the most advanced technological systems available. If you would like to learn more about his lecture topics and times, click the Lecture heading to the left. All 3-D CAD models, photos and radiographs are from his large collection of patient treatment records.
In his spare time he enjoys playing the piano, flying, mountain biking, scuba diving, travel, dinner and laughs with friends, and playing with his dog Trevor!

My brother Robert and I standing aboard the USS Wisconsin. This is the Naval battleship my father served on when he was in the Navy. This ship is now docked and out of comission at Norfolk, VA. Was kind of emotional for me to stand where he did then.
