Meet Our Doctors

Danny Weiss, DDS, MS

headshot of orthodontist doctor danny weissI love what I do! Even after years in this profession, there is nothing I find more satisfying than seeing the transformation that comes to a person when their treatment is completed, and they smile at themselves in the mirror that very first time. Just knowing that I contributed to giving them the healthiest and most beautiful smile they can have! How can you not love that? We even have patients who stop by our office years after their treatment is completed, just to give us an update on how their life is going!

Not only am I a native Memphian, but also received both my Doctorate of Dental Surgery and master’s in orthodontics right here at the University of Tennessee. Even with my degrees, I still believe it’s important to stay current and on the cutting edge of the newest ideas and the latest technology that is available for our patients, and I feel strongly about reaching out to the community. I’m particularly proud to be an active participant in Smiles for Life, dentistry’s most successful charity campaign.

My wife Saralyn and I are both very active in our community and keep busy with our many grandchildren, but when I’m able, I do enjoy sneaking away for a round or two of golf or to cheer on one of our area’s many sports teams: football, basketball, baseball, whatever ... I love them all!

Don’t take my word for it! Read about us, check out our website, then come on in and let us get to know you! We are here, after all, to make YOU smile!!

Brenton Glassell, DDS, MDS

I’m Dr. Brenton Glassell, but it’s easier just to call me Dr. G. I grew up here in Tennessee. After completing my undergraduate work at the University of Arkansas, I came back to Memphis to attend dental school at the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry. I graduated with high honors and was privileged to be inducted into the prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon Society and the Dean Odontological Society. I also received the Dean’s Leadership Award, which is one of the highest honors given to a graduating dental student.

I completed my orthodontic training at the University of Tennessee Department of Orthodontics. After my residency, I completed my Board Certification and became a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. It was a lot of hard work, but it's a designation that only about 30% of practicing orthodontists in the United States have achieved. It was well worth it!

I try to always stay on the cutting edge of orthodontic technology and regularly attend continuing education classes so I can be “up to the minute” on anything that will help give my patients the best smiles possible! Dr. Weiss and I specialize in Invisalign, clear aesthetic braces, and accelerated orthodontics. I have extensive experience with interceptive orthodontic treatments to correct teeth and habits in young children from my time spent working in a pediatric dental practice. Giving quality, individualized care to every patient that comes to our office is my passion. I love seeing people smile about their smiles!

When I’m not at the office, I love spending time with my wife, Gail, and my three beautiful daughters Ella, Graycen, and Kensington. I enjoy all that Memphis has to offer, from plays at the Orpheum to cheering on the Grizzlies. I also enjoy golfing, hunting, fishing, exercising, and cheering on everything Razorback!

Now, it’s YOUR turn! Come on in so we can get to know YOU better!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Simon Chanin, DDS, MDS

Hey y’all, I’m Dr. Chanin! I am a native of Memphis and a graduate of White Station High School. I studied Spanish and music at Tulane University in New Orleans before coming back home to Memphis for my dental degree at the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry.  After completing my orthodontic residency in Portland, Oregon, I moved back to Memphis once more, and it feels great to be home!

Like Dr. G and Dr. Weiss, I completed my Board Certification and became a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics.  Attaining this designation took multiple years of studying and preparation, but through the process, I learned how to provide the best possible orthodontic care to our patients.

Coming from a pediatric dental practice, I have enjoyed helping children of all ages to correct their bites, eliminate habits, and feel proud of their smiles. I also enjoy working in conjunction with dentists from other specialties to help adult patients with more complex dental needs to achieve the best possible results for their oral health and their smiles. The most important thing to me is the relationships I form with patients and their families, and I look forward to meeting you to help you achieve all your smile goals!

When I’m not working with patients, I can be found spending time with my wife, Lydia, and our two dogs, Olive and Lottie. I am an avid fan of music, an amateur piano player, a bit of a sneaker head, a world-ranked Rubik’s cube solver, a new Pickleball player, and an explorer of every delicious bite of food that can be found in Memphis - but most of all, I’m a people person who can’t wait to meet you! So come by and see us!
