Meet our Doctors

Brianne C. DeSantis, D.M.D., M.S.

Dr. DeSantis grew up in Merritt Island, Florida where she met her husband, Jason.  She graduated with honors from The University of Florida (go Gators!) and attended Nova Southeastern School of Dental Medicine, receiving her Doctorate of Medical Dentistry degree. She pursued her orthodontic specialty training at the University of Minnesota where she was awarded a Master of Science degree for her research involving growth prediction of adolescent patients using an adrenal androgen, DHEA.

Dr. DeSantis is an active member in the American Association of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association, and the Volusia-Flagler Dental Society. She is also a member of the Vanguard Society, an organization dedicated to the advancement of the art and science of orthodontics through scientific and clinical research.

Personally, Dr. DeSantis enjoys boating, jogging, tennis and most of all chasing after her two sons, Zorin and Finn!
