Five stars to the team at Belmont Orthodontics! We’re very pleased with the care, attention and kindness shown by every employee there. My daughter looks forward to her appointments -she can tell they care and treat her with respect too -it’s not just a conversation between adults! You’ll feel confident and enjoy your experience here.

I just finished my treatment at Belmont Orthodontics and they are such a great group! Friendly and accommodating front desk staff and Dr. Melilta is very talented. Overall they were great and were very accommodating during the pandemic. Plus you get a gift at the end of treatment 🙂 This group goes above and beyond- and still puts patients / customers first. Highly recommend.

Braces:  The unattractive connection that binds you literally to metal for the awkward years.  Going to Belmont Orthodontics was something that my sister and I did growing up.  Everything about this place is great.  Dr. Melita is wonderful and her staff is professional and kind.  If you need some braces, check them out!

If you are looking for an orthodontist, Belmont Orthodontics is the best place to go. Dr. Melita is the most amazing orthodontist I have ever had. She is extremely knowledgeable and professional while delivering great care to her patients. Along with Dr. melita, the entire staff at Belmont orthodontics is incredible. They give great care and improved my teeth so much. Before I went to Belmont Orthodontics, my teeth looked terrible. I had several underbites and my teeth were out of line. Now, I have a straight smile and I love it. I love going to Belmont Orthodontics and would highly recommend it.

I am very happy with my experience here at Belmont Orthodontics. Dr. Melita and her staff are excellent, highly skilled and very friendly. I had a very severe case of overcrowding that required multiple extractions and turbos to fix the bite. But, only in a matter of 24 months, she completely transformed my smile. I am very happy with my results. I highly recommend Belmont Orthodontics for any orthodontic care.

S E. from Medford, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Melita and her entire staff are very knowledgeable, professional and welcoming. They have always taken the time to thoroughly answer any questions or concerns about treatment over the years. Dr. Melita is very involved in community programs that are helpful to people in need. It has been a pleasure visiting Belmont Orthodontics over the years and I highly recommend them. Their office is spacious, modern and very clean.

I have two kids who see Dr. Melita. Both of them started pretty young and I was worried that they might be scared by the experience, but all the staff doing the orthodontic work were kind and calming and worked so well with them. The whole team is great–from the front office to xrays and everything in between! Dr. Melita is also really committed to giving back to the community and is always doing exciting charitable activities that she can get patients involved with like the Holloween candy buy-back. My kids are counting the days until they get their bag of popcorn when the braces come off :0D Me and the kids have had nothing but positive experiences at Belmont Orthodotics and I recommend Dr. Melita and the team without any reservations.

I just finished my treatment and had an amazing experience! I am 30 and had Invisalign (also had braces as a teenager) and have extremely sensitive teeth and the staff and Dr. Melita were extremely accommodating. It was so easy and painless! The prices/timeline were both much better than other businesses I was quoted so overall I highly recommend going to Dr. Melita for an amazing experience and great staff to work with!

Dr. Melita and her team are highly professional and skilled. I’m very pleased with their treatment for both of my children over the course of four years. I cannot thank them enough for the beautiful smiles my children now have! The transformations were incredible. I highly recommend Dr. Melita and her team if you’re looking for a practice for orthodontic care.

Marielle R. from Arlington, MA (Source: Yelp)


I would highly recommend Belmont Orthodontics. The staff is friendly, helpful and professional. Dr. Melita is extremely competent, kind and thorough. My daughter is currently being treated here, and when my son’s mouth is ready, he will go as well. Thanks to Dr. Melita and Belmont Orthodontics!

M A. from Belmont, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Melita has been our family orthodontist for over ten years. Two of our three children have completed their treatment her. They both have very different personalities and had very different treatments. Both now have very beautiful smiles and are thrilled. This summer our son will begin his treatment here and I have complete confidence that his final outcome will be just as fantastic. Dr.Melita is obviously a phenomenal clinician and that was my first reason for going here.However, the staff she has is equally stellar and are a big part of the successful outcome. Elaine who is the office manager is wonderful and her warmth and professionalism is reflected in the waiting room. I can’t say enough about Dr.Melita and her wonderful practice. I recommend Belmont Orthodontics 100%!

The team at Belmont Orthodontics is amazing. I took my 8 year old there for a consult and cannot wait to bring her back as a formal patient. They are professionally, friendly, and know exactly how to speak to and handle parents as well as kids (nervous ones too). Cannot speak highly enough of the entire team

Qi W. from Belmont, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Melita and the team are awesome! As an adult, I was hesitated at first and unsure of whether I should start to wear braces. Now after 15 months invisalign treatment, I am amazed at how good my teeth look like. I am very satisfied with the treatment as many people saying ” you have beautiful smiles”. I would say It is one of the greatest decision I’ve made in the past few years. I highly recommend Dr. Melita to anyone who is considering orthodontics. I feel very comfortable in the whole treatment process. People are nice and friendly here and the price is reasonable!

Colleen N. from Groton, MA (Source: Yelp)


I would highly recommend Dr. Melita to any adult needing traditional orthodontics or invisalign. I work full time and she and her staff were always willing to schedule my appointments early in the morning or over lunch. The office is very modern and comfortable. There is a Keurig and free WiFi while you wait (I very rarely had to wait though). She stays involved in the community and usually hosts an ice cream social at the office on opening day of the Sox season. If you’re thinking about Invisalign, think about seeing Dr. Melita. I am so happy with my smile 🙂

As my first yelp review ever, I wanted to pay homage to one of the most professional, innovative, and caring businesses I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Dr. Melita and her team are truly some of my most favorite people! I’m a thirty-something year old woman who after consulting with a few other orthodontists in the area, met with Dr. Melita and immediately knew I wanted to work with her. I had a complicated case which involved tooth extractions, braces, more tooth extractions and a tooth implant, all on a very precise timeline. All the afore mentioned procedures had to be performed because I was getting married and needed that “perfect smile” for my big day! Dr. Melita and her team worked seamlessly with my oral surgeons and general dentist to make this happen in the very specific timeline I needed… even if it meant someone coming into the office when the office was technically “closed.” I liken the process to a beautifully choreographed dance that was perfectly executed by all who were involved… Belmont Orthodontics is worth every penny! The treatment area is newly renovated and very organized. I never felt out of place as an adult obtaining orthodontic treatment here. My treatment was always prompt, personalized and very thorough. I truly can not thank Belmont Orthodontics enough! I ended up with a gorgeous smile, a new-found confidence, and picture perfect teeth for my wedding! (And the rest of my life!) My future children, who will most likely be blessed with my crooked/extra teeth genes, will absolutely have the pleasure of coming here some day!

After interviewing several orthodontists, we were easily SOLD on Dr. Melitta and her Belmont Orthodontics practice!  From day 1 to the “Big Beautiful Smile” day when my braces were removed, Dr. Melitta and her entire staff made having braces an easy and pleasant experience.  They are not only professional, but very friendly, kind and sincere.  I would strongly recommend them – they’re the BEST around!

Christina V. from Watertown, MA (Source: Yelp)


I had a wonderful experience here. It was 10+ years ago but it doesn’t sound like anything has changed. Dr. Melita and her staff were always so nice and truly cared about me not only as a patient but as a person. They really made what could have been a horrible experience the best it could be. I am so thankful my parents invested in my smile and I get compliments on it often. I know I should wear my retainer more often and will probably be back soon to check on that!

We have had three kids all see Dr. Melita with amazing results! She and her entire staff are warm, welcoming and incredibly talented at what they do. They are inclusive in the decision process and explain everything in detail. They are upfront about costs and there are never hidden fees. I highly recommend Dr. Melita and everyone at Belmont Orthodontics for the perfect smile and a welcoming atmosphere.

Dr. Melita and her whole team are simply amazing! My son just got his braces off and his smile is better than ever! Dr. Melita was so helpful during covid when one of my son’s brackets broke loose, she FaceTimed us and assured us it would not cause any problem with his treatment. My two other sons are still being treated by Dr. Melita and I would 100% recommend her to anyone!

Gayatri P. from Arlington, MA (Source: Yelp)


My family and I are big fans of Dr. Melita and the Belmont Orthodontics staff. Dr. Melita is experienced, professional and warm with a great ability to explain procedures in layman’s terms. Her staff are always friendly and a joy to interact with. My son never complains about an appointment and tells me he’s a fan of the chapsticks they sometimes give away, as well as the candy buy back program they do after Halloween. I heard about Dr. Melita through friends who had a very positive experience with her and her office and I feel exactly the same way.

Susan M. from Belmont, MA (Source: Yelp)


I’m so happy with my experience at Belmont Orthodontics.  First and foremost Dr. Melita is a top notch orthodontist. She came up with a treatment plan and it was carried out just as she had anticipated (this was for both my child and myself).  She and her wonderful office staff have the perfect balance of professionalism and warmth & caring.  I highly recommend!

E S. from South Waltham, MA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Dr. Melita and her staff. I am in my 30’s and felt not comfortable wearing braces; plus, I was relocated from AZ to MA after putting on my braces for 6 months. Today I got my braces taken off and my teeth looks far better than I imagined! During the whole process, Dr. Melita showed me each key steps, risk/benefits, she did her due diligence on my past history, evaluated potential risks, informed me all the move- forward plan. The initial doubts and uncomfortness disappeared and I am so lucky I chose work with Dr. Melita during the past 14 months- her staff are very friendly, patient, responsive. I am very grateful! I noticed that Dr. Melita is also supporting communication education and school activities. I highly recommend Dr. Melita and her staff- your journey with Dr. Melita will be much more comfortable and bear great result (smile) at the end.

We are very happy with both the results of our son’s orthodontic treatment and also with the whole experience. Dr. Melita and all her staff are so competent, responsive, and kind. Their safety protocols made us feel safe and we are grateful that our son’s treatment has been able to continue without any delay. Also, everything was explained to my son very clearly and they motivated him to do his own part to make the treatment successful. Dr. Melita’s team also went above and beyond to work with the pediatric dentist to schedule coordinated cleanings. We are grateful to Dr. Melita and all the team at Belmont Orthodontics!

My daughter just finished her treatment and we had a wonderful experience at Belmont Orthodontics. Safe and welcoming space following the COVID protocols. Accommodating to our scheduling needs. Excellent patient care and follow ups. My daughter has a beautiful smile and we are very happy thanks to Dr. Melita and her team.

Daniel B. from Lake Mary, Orlando, FL (Source: Yelp)


Could not have been happier.  I did this late in my life (was 63 years old when I started the treatment) and it was a fantastic experience.  I did the Invisaligns which were incredible.  Dr. Melita (Carolyn) is incredible at what she does and her staff supports her in an impeccable way.  I could not have been any happier with the results.

Colleen L. from Arlington, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Melita and her staff are the best! On top of making my daughter’s smile just right, they were so accommodating with scheduling appointments. The staff is extremely friendly and nurturing, they even sent my daughter flowers after an major sports injury. I highly recommend Dr Melita, you won’t find a practice in the area more dedicated to serving you and giving the best care possible!

Trish D. from Waltham, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Melita and her staff are by far the best in the business. As a 30+ year old woman, I was quite reluctant to dive into the world of orthodontia. But after consultation with my dentist, and with Dr. Melita, I realized that correcting my teeth wasn’t just about a nice smile, it was about my overall oral health. I had quite a complicated case, which involved multiple tooth extractions, pulling a tooth down, and several small procedures to help close the large gaps created by the extractions. The whole process took just under 3 years, during which time I got pregnant and had my third child, which meant my treatment had to be slightly tailored to accommodate pregnancy. Dr. Melita’s office worked with my dentist’s office and they made things so easy by helping to schedule dental cleanings around appointments and removing my wires before my cleanings to make it easier for the dental hygienist (and me!). Dr. Melita collaborated so well with my dentist, Dr. Toyias, which just made everything so much easier. I couldn’t be happier with the results, and I am so glad I chose to go to Dr. Melita. I knew right away that I wanted her to fix my teeth, and couldn’t imagine anyone doing a better job or providing better care than Dr. Melita. She would check in on me after some of the procedures I had just to make sure i doing OK, and she even removed my top braces for my sister’s wedding (for 4 days) so that I could smile big and bright without having to worry about the braces. Dr. Melita is a genuine person and cared about me not just as a patient, but as a person. I would recommend her and her practice to anyone that is in need of orthodontic care. Should my children need braces, I will absolutely be bringing them to Dr. Melita!

Joanna R. from Cambridge, MA (Source: Yelp)


Not knowing for sure if Invisalign treatment would be possible for me as an older adult, Dr. Melita and her staff couldn’t have been more competent and professional in reassuring me that treatment was possible.  In under a year I have a new beautiful smile!  And I cannot emphasize enough how nice the entire team is.  Each office visit was so pleasant.  Never had to wait – everyone is so personable.  Dr. Melita really is an expert orthodontist plus one of the nicest people I’ve met.

It has been 20+ years since I’d been a patient at Dr. Melita’s office. It was reassuring and pleasant to be back as a patient. I thoroughly enjoy the staffs’ professionalism and friendliness. It was very easy to pick up where I left off. I highly recommend Belmont Orthodontics. My husband and son have been patients here too and are also quite pleased with this practice.

Dr. Carolyn Melita is the doctor I entrust with care of my two children’s orthodontic work. Each had unique needs. One had major structural work, in tandem with a surgeon she recommended to perform major orthognathic surgery – a seven-year journey to a beautiful and transformative smile. And finally, my youngest, who only required minor bite correction, which took less than 2 years for a charming smile with pearly white, straight teeth. No matter the issues, Dr. Melita has a plan that is both financially manageable, while keeping my children positively engaged in the process and committed to following through with each stage of corrective intervention.

Anastasia A. from Arlington, MA (Source: Yelp)


I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. After taking x-rays and photos, Dr. Melita herself carefully measured the gaps between my teeth and assessed their relative position. Then she proceeded to educate me on the specifics of my teeth placement, size, and bite. Her assessment was actually that no orthodontic treatment was necessary. It was so clear that her intentions were to provide the best care possible for my situation, even if it meant losing a sale. After the appointment, she even followed up with a personal email recounting her findings. I will definitely be returning to this office for future guidance and care!

Peter C. from Burlington, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Melita and her staff took such good care of our daughter. She now has a beautiful smile. It was quite a transformation. From the very beginning and throughout my daughter’s treatment, Dr. Melita patiently explained to us the process and listened to our concerns. It’s a good feeling to have your daughter in the hands of someone you trust. I highly recommend her if your kids need orthodontic treatment.

My son just completed treatment and we are so pleased. The experience was top notch all around. Dr. Melita really cares about her patients and presents all the best options. My son was able to have Invisalign and I felt good going with them knowing Dr. Melita has years of experience and expertise to make sure everything was moving into place properly. We are so grateful to have Belmont Orthodontics in our community. Smiles all around!

Orthodontics- it’s not just for kids! Maybe you are like me. Your braces came off years ago, but your teeth have drifted since then. Or maybe you always wanted to improve your smile, but never got around to it. Dr. Melita understands adult concerns. The Invisalign treatment allows you to make the changes that you want without the hassle of unsightly old fashioned braces. I am so pleased with my results and only wish that I had done it sooner! I would recommend Dr. Melita and her cordial staff to all.

Salih M. from Cambridge, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Melita and her staff are great! Prior to my treatment, I have visited many orthodontists in the general Boston-Cambridge area to see what different dentists thought about how to approach my treatment. Although many of them had similar ideas and expectations, Dr. Melita was the only one who combined those into a transparent plan and explained all the details with realistic expectations of what I will be going through during and after the treatment. My specific treatment consisted of a year-long invisalign procedure, which they made easy to go through. I knew from the beginning what the end result would look like. Invisalign took some time to get used to at first, but it was easy to keep wearing them especially after I got accustomed to speaking with the aligners and removing them before eating. Most people won’t even notice you have them on, which can be a plus every now and then. I honestly believe choosing Belmont Orthodontics was worth the hour-long commute every few weeks since they provided what I thought was the best possible service and treatment. I would highly recommend it to anyone considering orthodontic treatment.
