Dr. Teresa K. Brigance, DMD, MS, took her initial steps toward becoming a trusted orthodontist in Melbourne, FL by earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology at the University of Florida and then completing her education at the College of Dentistry in the same university. She earned both her degrees as a graduate of the university’s Honors Program, even finishing as the valedictorian of her class at the College of Dentistry.
She later practiced general dentistry in the U.S. Army. After serving her country, she sought to further her education at the University of Florida by completing the post-doctoral program of the College of Dentistry, as well as earning a Master of Science degree in dental education.
She finally established her own private practice in Melbourne, FL in 1996. Since then, Dr. Brigance and her team of professionals have successfully helped over hundreds of adults and children in Brevard County meet their orthodontic needs.
Dr. Brigance and her staff are highly regarded for being very professional when providing orthodontic services. If a person is a new patient, the doctor meticulously reviews his dental and medical history and conducts a very thorough orthodontic examination before any type of treatment is recommended or applied.
The doctor is also known for providing a very relaxing environment for her patients, seeing to it that they are as comfortable as possible during procedures. She makes sure to be very accommodating by encouraging patients beforehand to never hesitate to ask questions when discussing their orthodontic needs, concerns, and expectations.
Her practice presently offers the professional application of different teeth straightening appliances such as traditional metal braces and the very discreet Invisalign braces. As Dr. Brigance continues to further her dental expertise by continually learning about the latest practices and procedures in the dental field, she also makes it a point to offer the newest orthodontic applications as they become available.
She remains steadfast in her pursuit of the highest quality orthodontics possible by being certified and actively involved with highly regarded organizations such as the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, and the Brevard County Dental Society.
The quality of her work as an orthodontist has reached beyond her practice’s Melbourne location, as fully satisfied patients continue to trust her services, coming from areas such as Suntree, Viera, Palm Bay, and other areas in Florida.
