Dr. Darryl S. Zeleniak, D.M.D., M.S.D.

Dr. Zeleniak has been practicing orthodontics in Augusta since 1988 and has been at 132 State Street since 1991. His goal is to give you the most beautiful, full smile he can while avoiding extraction whenever possible. Since orthodontics is a cheerful, non-invasive profession Dr. “Zee” makes patient visits pleasant and fun. See below for more information about his credentials, affiliations and more. Before he became an orthodontist Doctor Zee was a Naval Flight Officer in P-3 aircraft (think Officer and a Gentleman). He served 6 years on active duty and retired as a Navy Commander after 14 more years of service as a Naval Reservist and Commanding Officer of a unit at NAS Brunswick. Doctor Zee is well-known for his Christmas Light and Music Spectacle that runs from Black Friday to New Year”s Eve. The beautiful classic New England Federal Style building that is his office is festooned with thousands of multi-colored lights that flash in timed sequences to popular Christmas Carols and Contemporary Christmas Pop Songs. The music is transmitted over a radio station as well as played thru outdoor speakers.
