New Orthodontist Joins Hess Ortho

It is with sadness that Hess Orthodontics announces that colleague Dr. VanLandschoot will be departing the practice to pursue other opportunities. His contributions to the practice and the patients are greatly appreciated, and he is wished the very best of luck in his future endeavors. Hess Ortho is pleased, however, to announce that Dr. Hess will be back in the office to see patients on a full-time basis.

Additionally, the practice welcomes Dr. Chelsea Brockway, DDS, MS, who is joining Hess Orthodontics. She was born and raised in St. Petersburg. She attributes her interest in orthodontics to the feelings of confidence and pride she felt after getting her braces off at the age of 15, which sparked her desire to help others find their own inner confidence through their smiles.

Her first job in high school was as a sterilization technician for her own orthodontist in St. Pete, and she never looked back, going on to earn her DDS from Columbia University’s dental program and receiving her MS in Dental Sciences from the University of Florida.

Dr. Brockway is a licensed Invisalign provider and is certified in Botox and Dermal Fillers. She believes that one of the best ways to enrich her own life is by giving part of herself to someone in great need, and she is passionate about serving others in her free time through volunteering at free dental clinics, offering care on dental mission trips, and providing care for patients with special needs at All Children’s Hospital. 
Dr. Brockway’s big heart, exceptional talents, and unparalleled dedication to the patients she serves make her an incredible asset to our Hess Orthodontics team.

Hess Orthodontics is located at 11970 Boyette Rd. in Riverview. For more information or to make an appointment, call 645-4377 or visit www.hessorthodontics.com.
