Meet our Doctors
Joseph Comizio DDS MBA
Part medicine, part engineering, and part artistry, making a change in a person’s life through the magic of orthodontics has always been my passion professionally and continues to give me great satisfaction. My goal is to provide patients with the best orthodontic treatment in an office that makes the experience as enjoyable as possible for everyone.
I feel privileged to help each of my patients, and appreciate that they have chosen me as their orthodontist. Visualizing each patient’s orthodontic treatment from start to finish, it is fulfilling to see their confidence grow as they see a healthier and more attractive smile develop. Utilizing the latest technology for moving teeth, as well as for interactive practice management and efficient office operations, makes each day at our office the best it can be.
With our younger patients, it’s exciting to see them grow into their new smile right in front of our eyes, and how it helps make them confident young adults in pursuing their life goals. It is also very rewarding to see our adult patients as they journey through an orthodontic makeover that leaves them looking younger and feeling better about themselves.

In the Community
“I have always felt privileged with the support and encouragement of my parents at an early age, and blessed from God to have the opportunity for my career and my life. I feel equally blessed to be able to share that with others, and it makes me feel good to do it. Comizio Orthodontics is proud and fortunate to have contributed more than $100,000 over the years to charitable and volunteer causes and organizations.”
