Meet the Team

Book an Appointment

Our team is what makes this office so great! Without them, it’s just a building. With them, it’s so much more.

Only the Best

Dr. Brandon Comella personally selects each new team member at Comella Orthodontics. The most important thing he looks for is how well they are able to connect with other people. How friendly they are with every patient that sits in our chair. This team believes in the values and passion that started this business, and that’s why you’ll only find the best at Comella Orthodontics!

There may be other practices that can deliver the same results that we can deliver, but they can’t deliver them in the way that we’re going to deliver.

We want you to feel great about your treatment. We want you to look forward to coming in each visit, and we want you to be so happy with your treatment that you tell all your friends and family about it!

Clinical Assistant/RDH

Why do you love your job?
I just love watching the transformation of each patient throughout their treatment. Seeing the confidence in their smile when they have the braces taken off is one of the most rewarding feelings.

Weirdest fear:
Blue cheese. I get made fun of all the time for this one!

Jamie Painting-Naumann

Director of Operations

Favorite movie:
I love all sports movies, but my all-time favorite is Love and Basketball.

I grew up playing basketball, and I’m in the 1,000 points scored club — and hold the record of most rebounds at 600. I went to college on a partial basketball scholarship to a division 2 school, Mansfield University.

Dr. Comella

What do you love about your job?
I love being an orthodontist, but I don't want to just fix teeth. I want to make patients feel like they had an absolute blast during all points of treatment. It’s very fulfilling to me when a patient says this is the best part of their day — or when they recommend our office to a friend because they said it's so much fun. And I want you to feel that every time you sit in our chair at Comella Orthodontics.

Dr. Restrepo

What’s your favorite movie?
My all-time favorite movie is Coco by Pixar Animation Studios. I love how this movie is about family traditions, how they honor their ancestry and history is passed on from generation to generation keeping families together forever.

What inspires you?
I am inspired by random acts of kindness. Imagine how much better this world would be if every single person would do one random of act of kindness every day.

This has been the best experience so far. Dr. Comella and his staff are very friendly and explain everything very well. If I know anyone who needs orthodontics, I'll be sure to send them here. Thank you so much for the amazing work you do!

Best orthodontist out there! Dr. Comella did an amazing job on my teeth. I am so happy with the results!! They use the latest technology there including a 3D render of the finished product, so that my retainers were ready for me on the day I came in to get the braces off. Dr. C is confident and good at what he does, which makes you feel at ease throughout the whole process. Would recommend him to anyone!

This Is Why We’re Different!

You deserve a smile that you're proud to show off — even while you’re still in treatment. We provide completely aesthetic treatment options, including clear braces, behind-the-teeth braces, and Invisalign.
