About Christel Hummert

Dr. Christel A. Hummert always enjoys watching patients see their healthy new smile for the first time. “When a patient reacts with pure amazement, it never gets old!” Dr. Hummert says.

In practice for 14 years, she provides both adults and children with personalized attention and care.

As a board-certified orthodontist, Dr. Hummert creates the most effective and clinically appropriate treatment plan for each patient. She offers a variety of orthodontic options, including clear braces, Incognito™ Hidden Braces, Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen, as well as interceptive treatment when indicated. At her modern and paperless office, she uses the latest technology, including digital radiographs and the most current iTero® digital scanner, which eliminates the need for impressions. With a lifelong love of learning, Dr. Hummert regularly exceeds the annual requirements for continuing education courses to stay current with the best treatment techniques.

“Success is knowing that I am helping patients improve their quality of life by giving them beautiful and healthy smiles,” Dr. Hummert says. “Beautiful straight teeth and a good bite are healthier and easier to clean, and provide a priceless boost in self-confidence.”

Perhaps the greatest indication of Dr. Hummert’s high level of care is that many referring dental colleagues trust her to provide treatment for themselves and for their own children. She graduated from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and earned her orthodontic specialty certificate from Columbia University. She also participates in the American Association of Orthodontists’ Donated Orthodontic Services program, through which she donates care to patients in need.
