Dr. Michaela McCormick grew up in Delaware County with her three brothers and her parents (Dr. Joe McCormick had his first orthodontic practice 3 blocks from their home). After high school she went to Middlebury College in Vermont where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in both Biology and Psychology. After graduation she traveled the US and Canada, working and studying for three years, learning to speak French and gathering the science pre-requisites needed to apply to dental school. In 2005 she graduated from Temple Dental School, where she was on the Admissions Committee, Yearbook Committee and the Honor Board. She was on the Dean’s list 9 semesters for outstanding academic achievement and was chosen to receive the Bresler Award where one graduating senior who has a special gift in working with children is honored. Following graduation she worked with Dr. Robert Vanarsdall, a dual specialist in both Orthodontics and Periodontics. This singular year with Dr. Vanarsdall, a true maverick in the field of orthodontics authoring innumerable text books and research papers and speaking all over the world, gave her an invaluable depth of knowledge into difficult cases, surgical cases, periodontal issues and true orthopedic treatment. She graduated from University of Pennsylvania Orthodontic Residency in 2008 and went right into practice here in Chester County.
Dr. Michaela has owned McCormick Orthodontics since 2011. She wouldn’t want to work in any other place in the world! She LOVES children and finds enormous joy in chatting with them at each visit and watching them grow. She believes in a balance of preventative and proactive orthodontic approaches and believes every parent and patient deserves a thorough explanation of the issues at hand and the recommended treatment plan. At the exam, she has two distinct rules: #1: There are no sneak attacks; we get to chat about and examine any and all instruments and procedures. Rule #1 helps build the patient’s confidence and trust throughout treatment. Rule #2: Please ask questions! Dr. Michaela firmly believes the more she knows about each patient, the better she can guide treatment and motivate each patient. Without knowing each patient she is just treating the teeth...she wants to treat more holistically.
Dr. Michaela is married to a hockey loving French Canadian named Francois Gravel...who goes by Frank. They have two awesome kids, Henri and Beatrice. When Dr. Michaela has some free time she spends it with her kids, reading, wrestling and playing in the creek next to their house. She is a ravenous reader, loves food and can’t wait to camp and travel more as her kids get older.
Dr. Sonal Dave is an outstanding orthodontist dedicated to creating beautiful smiles and enhancing facial beauty. She practices with compassion and sensitivity to each patient’s needs. She truly enjoys being able to make a positive impact on patients’ lives and looks forward to building relationships with her patients and their families during their orthodontic journey. Dr. Dave had braces as a teenager and had an amazing life changing experience and her goal is to recreate this experience for each of her patients.
Dr. Dave's hard work and extensive educational background has provided her with specialized knowledge and advanced training to deliver the best services and results to her patients. She began her education at Unionville High School in our neighboring town Kennett Square, PA.
She earned her Bachelor's degree in Science and a minor in Religious Studies from Penn State University along with several honors and awards. After college, Dr. Dave worked and traveled on a back-packing trip to South East Asia and Japan. Upon her return, she pursued her dental degree from the prestigious Ivy-league school, University of Pennsylvania, and graduated summa cum laude. During her studies there, she was also able to fulfill her love of travel. Dr. Dave was granted an externship to Fuji where she worked as a dentist treating an underserved population. After graduation she completed a general practice residency program at Christiana Care Hospital in Wilmington, Delaware. Upon completion of her residency, Dr. Dave had the privilege to return to University of Pennsylvania for her post-doctoral specialized orthodontic training.
Dr. Sonal Dave also understands the importance of continually learning and keeping current in the field of orthodontics. She strives to learn about the most modern advances and techniques by attending continuing education classes and conferences regularly. She is also a member of the American Association of Orthodontics, American Dental Association, and the Pennsylvania Dental Association.
Dr. Dave is a native to the area and couldn’t be more happy to currently reside in Avondale, PA. She comes from a very close nit and extensive family that mostly reside in the neighboring towns as well. She has two beautiful children, Senai and Simryn, and enjoys her spare time with them. When she is not spending time with her family and friends, she loves being outdoors hiking, running, and working out. Lastly, as you already know, one of her true passions is traveling, learning, and experiencing different cultures.
