Dr. Iacobelli, founder of Orthodontic Specialists, graduated first in his class of 151 students from the University of Michigan Dental School in 1981, where he was awarded numerous certificates for outstanding performance in dental anatomy and clinical children’s dentistry. He then went on to complete his specialty residency and received his master’s degree in orthodontics from the University of Detroit Mercy in 1983.
Over the past 35 years, Dr. Iacobelli has researched and developed uniquely efficient and precise techniques for achieving rapid, quality orthodontic results. He has become well known for developing these concepts and has taught them to many practitioners at the Michigan Dental Association annual state sessions, at the University of Detroit, and through his continuing education classes for all levels of dental professionals held throughout the area and abroad.
These optimally-timed, non-extraction treatment approaches have produced aesthetically pleasing smiles, stable results and relatively short treatment times. In addition, Dr. Iacobelli’s holistic orthodontic approach helps the body grow passively by promoting natural growth as opposed to extraction and growth forces. We do not start your child’s treatement until the most optimal age. Both patients and referring doctors have been so pleased, that Orthodontic Specialists has become one of the largest practices in Michigan, treating over 25,000 patients to date.
Dr. Iacobelli’s role is to make sure all patients are treated according to these techniques. He spends most of his time diagnosing and seeing patients, as well as teaching the quality standards he has developed to the staff and doctors of Orthodontic Specialists.
