Award-Winning Treatment Backed By A Lifetime Guarantee

Dr. Emily Willett

I am excited to create beautiful smiles while encouraging a fun, positive environment for our patients! Providing high-quality orthodontic care to you and your family in a comfortable, open environment is a true privilege. I strive to empower our patients on their smile journey to achieve a result they truly love!

Originally from Ormond Beach, FL, I set my sights on a career in dentistry following my own orthodontic treatment. My orthodontist made quite the impression…creating a beautiful smile and inspiring a lifelong passion and career in orthodontics!

Presently, I am energized to push the profession forward by engaging in continuing education courses, exploring new orthodontic technology, and completing novel research. My recent findings contribute to a better understanding of surgical outcomes in patients affected by craniofacial conditions, specifically the Pierre Robin Sequence.


In my residency training at the highly-regarded University of Washington, I had the opportunity to treat patients of all ages with a variety of dental concerns and needs including early interceptive treatment, orthognathic surgery, and interdisciplinary care. I enjoy the collaborative nature of dentistry and look forward to working alongside other dental professionals to design a treatment plan best suited to your needs. My compassionate and kind nature will help you to feel right at home at Burrow Welchel & Culp Orthodontics.

Joining my family as a third-generation Wildcat, I attended the University of Kentucky where I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration in Management. I continued my education at UK for dental training and was honored for my academic achievement with induction into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon dental honor society. I served as a tutor to my peers and was awarded for my mastery in the understanding of dental pathology. I completed a three-year orthodontic residency at the University of Washington, known for educating some of the greatest minds in contemporary orthodontics.

I have successfully completed the board certification process through the American Board of Orthodontics, thus receiving designation as both a board-certified orthodontist.
