Meet Our Doctor

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.

Meet Our Staff

I have been a member of the McOrtho team since the summer of 2008. Currently I am the Office Manager, but I've worn many hats in the office! When I started with the practice, I worked in lab and sterilization. Then I took on a role in Marketing and Community Education, working very closely with the local schools. I also did Treatment Coordinating before moving into my current role.
I enjoy working at McCormick Orthodontics because I work with amazing doctors, a fun team and an amazing patient base. Every day is different and it keeps my job exciting!
Outside of the office I enjoy spending time with my husband, Jeff, who I met in middle school. We have two children, Sadie and Calvin, that keep us busy! We enjoy spending our time together going to concerts, sporting events and traveling anywhere we have the opportunity to go!

I am the Clinical Supervisor and I have been with McCormick Orthodontics since 2004.
I absolutely love what I do. To see the beginning and end results and smiles when patients are finished is amazing and rewarding!
I grew up here in the Oxford area and so did my husband, Jeff. We have three children, which have all completed treatment at McCormick's. My son, Louie, is a Marine, my oldest daughter, Dali, is a Nurse and my youngest, Jekelle, is in high school. I’m also soon to be a grandma(aka Gigi) of 3.
I love to travel whenever I can, but I love to be home too because I love spending time with my family. I also love gardening and according to my coworkers, I make a pretty mean salsa!

I've enjoyed working at McCormick's since the fall of 1992. I started out as a receptionist and now I am the Financial Coordinator.

I have been employed with the practice since March 1986. I guess you can tell I love my job, and working with the doctors, the staff and our wonderful families.
Two generations of my family, my three children and four of my grandchildren have had orthodontic treatment here at the office. It was an investment of a lifetime and one I would never regret.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband, 3 grown children and 5 grandchildren. I enjoy road trips with my husband, Phil, on our motorcycle and riding in the classic cars, reading, baking & cooking and spending time with my family. I also enjoy visiting Tennessee and Virginia, where most of my immediate family resides. My bucket list consists of a trip back to Ireland one day.
Its always a joy to see multiple generations of family's in the office.
I currently work part time at the office with hopes of more traveling in my future.
I know 2020 has been a rough year but we have just welcomed our first great grand baby to our family. Jase Weston arrived 10/28/2020 at 8 lbs 4 oz.
My grand daughter and her husband are stationed at Camp LeJeune In Jacksonville NC.
