Dr. Chelsea Brockway was born and raised in St. Petersburg, FL. When she got her braces off herself, she realized how significant it was to have a smile that makes you feel confident and proud. This interest led to Dr. Brockway’s first job at the age of 15 as a sterilization technician for her own orthodontist. She was thrilled to learn what some of the intricacies of an orthodontic practice entailed: the opportunity to connect with patients regularly, watch children grow, and make a positive and dramatic impact on their development. She knew then that orthodontics was the path she desired and was determined to attend dental school.
Dr. Brockway was accepted into Columbia University's College of Dental Medicine after completing her undergrad at University of Florida. Columbia’s dental school is located in Washington Heights, a neighborhood where the majority of the population is of Dominican descent and Spanish is commonly spoken on the streets. The culture was familiar and comforting to her as she is Hispanic-American herself. Dr. Brockway’s mother is from Honduras, and her father grew up in New England. After dental school, Dr. Brockway then completed specialty training in orthodontics for three years back at the University of Florida.
In her free time, Dr. Brockway enjoys yoga, jogging, jet-skiing, playing tennis, traveling, painting, going to the beach, and spending time with friends and family. Her professional affiliations include the American Dental Association, American Association of Orthodontics, Florida Association of Orthodontists, Southern Association of Orthodontists, and the Florida Dental Association.
