MEET DR. MANZELLA

EDUCATION

Dr. Manzella grew up in Fredonia, NY. Following high school, he studied Biology at SUNY Geneseo, where he met his wife, Noelle– a West Seneca native. Due to his academic success, he was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa National Honor Society. Following undergraduate school, Dr. M. spent four years at the SUNY at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine where he obtained his dental training and graduated Summa Cum Laude. He stayed at UB to complete his specialty training in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics and was awarded the William W. Feagans Clinical Postgraduate Scholarship. These extra three years of specialty training allows Dr. Manzella to call himself an orthodontist (Fun Fact: Only 6{29d905e5100f316c4cad8569917af5c3ef82a75b1dd78e8c7090c5db89ad3bd3} of dentists are orthodontists). Throughout his professional career, Dr. M. has published numerous articles in prominent dental and orthodontic journals (see link below). 

OUTSIDE THE OFFICE

First of all, Dr. Manzella is a family man. He has an amazing wife, Noelle, a beautiful daughter, Penelope, (with another baby on the way- stay tuned!) and two bossy rescue dogs, Zelda and Leif Erikson. He’s not your typical doctor. It would not be unusual for Dr. M. to show up to the office with a tear in his dress shirt because he was doing some electric work or demo-ing his kitchen. He runs marathons, makes wine, volunteers for the Paws for Love therapy dog program, plays tennis, and loves the Buffalo Bills!

MEET DR. RAND

EDUCATION

Dr. Rand obtained her Bachelor of Arts from Canisius College and received her dental training at the SUNY at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. Following dental school, she stayed an additional three years at the SUNY at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine to complete her orthodontic specialty training. She has devoted her life to the orthodontic profession and truly believes that orthodontic treatment can change lives. Over the 20 years of practicing orthodontics, she has seen countless patients blossom and grow throughout their time with her. She is grateful to be part of a profession that can create beautiful smiles and actually help lead people to live happier lives. Dr. Rand is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists and the American Dental Association. Each year, she pursues many hours of continuing education in order to stay abreast of the current trends in orthodontics. Dr. Rand is also a Clinical Assistant Professor at the SUNY at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine where she teaches orthodontic residents during their specialty training.

OUTSIDE THE OFFICE

Dr. Rand is a Buffalo native who now calls West Seneca her home. When she is not caring for her patients, you’ll most often find her spending time with her husband, kids, and dogs.

ZELDA

ZELDA

Assistant to the Office Manager

Zelda is an SPCA certified therapy dog through the Paws for Love Program. She shows up to work whenever she wants. She is allergic to most foods and doggie treats, so please don’t try to feed her, although she may try to trick you into giving her something!  We love her so much and that is why she is the inspiration behind our logo!

ASHLEY

ASHLEY

Clinical Assistant/Supplies Coordinator

Ashley began working at Manzella and Rand Orthodontics in 2018. She moved to Buffalo a few years ago from Syracuse to continue her education in dental assisting. She completed the dental assisting program at ECC and became certified in 2018. One of her favorite things about working in orthodontics is seeing the transformations that take place throughout treatment. Outside of work, Ashley loves spending time with friends and family, traveling, and of course, shopping!

Brittany

Brittany

Clinical Assistant/Social Media Coordinator

As a young child, Brittany had issues with dental anxiety. As an adult, she has learned to conquer those fears. This gives Brittany an advantage when helping patients get through their treatment. She is always happy to spend the time explaining to our patients what she’s doing while she works with them in the clinic. With a background in nursing, she’s passionate about taking care of patients and making them feel comfortable and informed in new situations. When she’s not putting smiles on our patient’s faces, she enjoys spending quality time with her loved ones and her cat, Kitty.
