Meet Dr. Morgan Zwickel


Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, Dr. Zwickel moved to Lexington, KY to attend the University of Kentucky and later the LECOM School of Dental Medicine in Bradenton, Florida. While in dental school, Dr. Zwickel met her husband, Dr. Joe Zwickel, a fellow dentist. Dr. Zwickel then was selected into the highly competitive Masters Program in Orthodontics at the Seton Hill University Center for Orthodontics in Greensburg, PA. As a fourth generation oral healthcare provider Dr. Morgan Zwickel is carrying on her family’s dental legacy. She is most inspired by her grandfather and father, both dentists, to help people achieve healthy, beautiful smiles.

Dr. Morgan M. Zwickel is one of the only orthodontic specialists in the Destin-Fort Walton Beach area to achieve Board Certification from the American Board of Orthodontics. In order to achieve such a distinguished designation, the doctor must have completed a 3 year orthodontic residency post dental school graduation and pass rigorous testing by the American Board of Orthodontics. As one of the premier orthodontic providers, you and your family can be assured to receive the highest quality of orthodontic care.
