Meet Dr. Leo

Your North Carolina Orthodontist

Hi folks! My name is Dr. Leonardo “Leo” Koerich, and I am one of the doctors at Koerich Orthodontics. I grew up in the southern part of Brazil, in a city called Florianópolis with a large, very close family all living pretty close by. I never would have thought that I would be the one in my family to leave the country and end up in North Carolina, but life takes us on some unexpected journeys sometimes, especially when you meet a special person!.

Meet Dr. Leo: Father

Husband and Father

After graduating, from the orthodontic program, I moved to Charlotte, got married to Lindsey, and then shortly after, completed the second round of dental school at Virginia Commonwealth University. I currently work as a general dentist with my practice limited to orthodontics. I am a strong believer that patient care starts by listening and understanding people’s concerns and desires, and my goals are to connect with people and to deliver a beautiful smile. When I am not in the office, you can find me teaching my kids how to play soccer, eating at the Brazilian bakery, and hanging out with my family.

I completed my first dental degree at Federal University of Santa Catarina, which is in Florianopolis, Brazil. After graduating, I was invited to complete a one-year Post-Doc Fellowship at the Department of Orthodontics at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, where I also met my wife, Lindsey. Upon completion, I received a full scholarship for residency in Orthodontics at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, the first and most respected orthodontic residency in the country.

Meet Dr. Lindsey: Mother

Wife and Mother

I am proud of being down to earth, approachable, and patient. I value being able to provide excellent treatment outcomes and a genuinely friendly and caring experience for the families we treat. Being treated like a fellow human being is really what it’s all about, isn’t it? Being an orthodontist is the best job ever! I love the challenges we face, I love being around all of our fun patients, and I love to keep learning and honing my craft. In fact, every year I spend a lot of weekends going to continuing education courses to stay ahead of the curve and to be able to continue providing the best and most up-to-date care to you. I am so looking forward to meeting you and giving you and your children an uplifting and positive braces (or Invisalign®) experience!

Teacher, Speaker, Author, and Host

After getting into my dream school for orthodontic residency, I moved back to Chapel Hill to complete my three-year Master’s degree in orthodontics at UNC-Chapel Hill. Through my life’s experiences, I have had the chance to interact with all kinds of people from different walks of life, but how I treat people really goes back to my roots. Where I am from, southern hospitality and being kind to one another is a way of life.
