Why Choose Us


Creating a healthy beautiful smile takes thoughtful consideration and time, not to mention years of specialized training and commitment to the highest standards of practice. Dr. Zell is an engineer, a dentist and a certified orthodontist with a master’s degree in orthodontics from the University of North Carolina, one of the top residency programs in the world. Dr. Zell is passionate about her work and committed to excellence in all aspects of patient care.

Individualized Care

At Zell Orthodontics, we recognize that every patient is unique and work closely with you to tailor a treatment plan that fits your specific needs and personal goals. We utilize modern and innovative systems that provide custom solutions for children, adolescents and adults. By offering a full range of treatments, from traditional braces to Invisalign, functional orthopedic appliances and corrective jaw surgery when needed, we are confident we can help you achieve the beautiful, healthy smile you desire.

Honest Trustworthy Treatment

Our practice is well known for conservative treatment and respected for our integrity, prescribing only what is needed to achieve the very best results. We believe in open and honest communication, keeping time in braces to a minimum. We design treatments that fit the needs of each patient; therefore, if your child has no current need for orthodontic intervention, we will monitor development until the time is right. Some of Dr. Zell’s most valued accomplishments involve simple early interventions that prevent the need for later, more involved treatment.

Modern & Innovative

We utilize modern technology and innovative systems to provide custom orthodontic solutions for every patient. The new iTero digital intraoral scanner allows us to replace traditional dental impressions with highly accurate digital images and “virtual” models. We use the Sirona Orthophos Digital X-ray unit, a premium and sophisticated machine which provides the highest quality x-rays with the lowest possible exposure.

Financial Options

At Zell Orthodontics, we offer complimentary consultations. This will give you the opportunity to meet our team, receive an initial exam, find out if treatment is needed and what options will deliver the most effective results. To make a beautiful smile as accessible and affordable as possible, we offer interest-free payment plans with flexible schedules. We work directly with you to help ensure you and your family receive quality orthodontic treatment that fits your budget.

Respect & Relationships

We are honored when you select Zell Orthodontics and therefore strive to deliver an outstanding experience and clinical excellence. We value your time and have designed our approach to be patient-centered — placing the patient first and foremost, not over booking appointments, and always being respectful of you, your time and our relationship. Many of our patients “grow up” in our office during their most formative years. We want that experience to be positive and worthwhile. The highest compliment we receive is when patients recommend us to take care of their family and friends.
