Meet Dr. Brandon Comella
I fell in love with the art and science of orthodontics when I was in the Air Force and saw patients develop this totally new confidence and attitude towards life.
Get to Know Dr. Comella
Dr. Comella opened his own private practice in 2005. Since then, Comella Orthodontics has grown to be one of the top orthodontic practices in the country. When you meet Dr. Comella, you will instantly see not only his passion for orthodontics, but also his commitment to creating an incredible patient experience.
US Air Force
Dr. Comella is a native Rochesterian and graduated from RL Thomas Webster High School. After high school, he entered the US Air Force for a four-year tour which took him to Texas, South Korea, and Mississippi. It was in the Air Force that he started his path in dentistry through his training and work as a dental lab technician. At this time, he also learned to fly aircraft and earned his pilot’s license.
Following his tour in the US Air Force, Dr. Comella earned his Bachelor and Master of Science degrees from Rochester Institute of Technology’s College of Engineering. While surprising to some, Dr. Comella believes his education in the field of mechanical engineering laid the perfect foundation for entering the field of dentistry. He then completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery and specialized degree in orthodontics from the State University of New York at Buffalo.
Assisting him in the office is Trevor, Dr. Comella’s dog. Trevor is a 12 year-old Shiba Inu that regularly comes to the office. Make sure to say hi to Trevor when you stop in — he will probably be sleeping on the floor!
Living His Best Life
In his spare time, Dr. Comella is an extensive traveler and avid adventure-seeker. He loves scuba diving, amateur car racing, skiing, flying airplanes, and he also plays the piano. You should definitely check out the Youtube channel to see all the office pranks, too!
Behind-the-Teeth Expert Program
Orthodontists from around the country travel to Rochester to attend this specialized two-day course which includes a lecture on Day 1 and a hands-on, in-office experience on Day 2. This course is a fantastic way for Dr. Comella to further share his experience and expertise.
Driven by the demands of esthetics, a relatively new style of braces is being brought to light — rather, hidden — by orthodontist and mechanical engineer, Dr. Brandon Comella. Dr. Comella is an expert on lingual braces, placed behind teeth to give patients a better smile without the look of traditional braces.
Democrat & Chronicle (July 2014)
Dr. Brandon Comella has created the only formal lingual braces training program available in North America. With the newly developed Harmony Expert Program, orthodontists can attend a two-day training class in Rochester to be educated on a highly specialized option known as lingual braces.
