Dr. Salzer is a graduate of Duke University with a Bachelor of Science in psychology and a certificate in Neuroscience, and New York University College of Dentistry, where she received her dental degree and post graduate certificate in Orthodontics. There she was the recipient of six academic and scholarship awards, a member of the Deans List, OKU Academic Fraternity, and dual Honors Programs in orthodontics and pedodontics.
Dr. Salzer was chosen to be a featured national speaker for Invisalign orthodontic products, has trained and certified hundreds of dentists and orthodontists in Invisalign training seminars and was voted a favorite speaker by Align Technology. She is a requested lecturer at NYC College of Dentistry as well as many other state wide programs in various topics in orthodontics.
For over 10 years, Dr. Salzer was a national spokesperson and Advisory Board Member for Proctor and Gamble’s Crest Toothpaste products and has worked closely with Crest to educate children and adults on oral hygiene and all aspects of dentistry. She worked as their expert consultant on many products, appearing in national commercials, working with celebrities and pioneering programs to empower patients.
Motivated by a desire to merge health with aesthetics and break out of the traditional orthodontic “cookie cutter” paradigm, Dr. Salzer began a continuing educational journey which led her to become an expert in ways to optimize facial form, symmetry, posture, breathing and positive growth in conjunction with a beautiful, full, wide, straight smile. This connection has enhanced our understanding and approach to treating TMJ problems, as well as issues with clenching, grinding, headaches, neck pain, and sleep issues such as snoring and sleep apnea. She utilizes many appliances to achieve these goals, including aligners, fixed functional appliances, ALF, Biobloc Orthotropics, and other removable appliances.
Dr. Salzer holds several patents, including Bracedlets (a fun-stretchy-jewelry brand that uses real orthodontic products) and a breathing pillow that helps the outcome of patients with Coronavirus and other respiratory difficulties.
She and Dr.Lemchen are the top 1% of Diamond Invisalign Providers.
