Dr. Ryan Pendleton is turning his childhood dream into a reality: opening a state-of-the-art office to provide high-quality orthodontics at a reasonable price. He wants to bring back the idea of "Mom-&-Pop" in a world where corporations are taking over and changing the narrative of the personal experience. He loves his job, he enjoys spending time with people, and he is excited to bring his skills to the city of Leander which he now calls home.





Dr. Ryan Pendleton, DDS, grew up in Northridge California and wanted to be an orthodontist since he was 10 years old. He completed his bachelor's of science degree in Sports Medicine with high honors at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. He then attended the University of California, Los Angeles, for his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree, graduating in 2004. Finally, he entered a residency program after dental school to earn his certificate in Orthodontics from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. He has been in private practice as an orthodontist since 2007. Read More...

Dr. Pendleton has a terrific approach treating orthodontic issues. His ability to understand patient desires and concerns was noteworthy. From start to finish, he communicated progress goals effectively while being flexible in accommodating my appointment dates. Not only am I tremendously pleased with the end result, I had a memorable experience along the way. As with Dr. Pendleton, the assistants go above and beyond to ensure you are comfortable while in the chair, with frequent check in’s for “thumb’s up”. In addition to tracking with your progress, they also remember details in conversation to make it feel like a true family experience. Any dental work can be stressful. However, due to Pendleton’s clear communication, fair cost analysis/pricing structure, and flexibility with appointments, I HIGHLY recommend seeking their assistance with your orthodontic needs. With a focus on dental health and cosmetic appearance, their end result is flawless!!

My son loves that orthodontist. He is so friendly and very patient with my son. The orthodontist decided not to go to our dentist office in Southwest Austin to do orthodontics since he started his new office in Leander. My son didn't want to transfer to a different office so we had to drive to his new office from Leander. I would recommend Pendleton Orthodontics.

Dr. Pendleton is very thorough and did an amazing job. I just got my braces off and I’m so happy. I’m very pleased with the professionalism and his ability to help me to understand the process. Well done Dr. Pendleton! I’m all smiles!

My daughter is in traditional braces and I am in Invisalign. Everything has been exceptional with our experiences at Pendleton orthodontics. Dr. Ryan is very thorough and easy to talk to and Chelsea is very professional, knowledgeable and quick to respond with any questions. Thank you for a great experience!

I've had nothing but good experiences with Dr. Pendleton an have been seeing him for Invisalign for two years now. He's always super nice and caters to his patients - doesn't try to push extra procedures or services. Would recommend if you're in the Leander area and looking for an orthodontist!

I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Pendleton. My daughter moved here last year, and Ryan took over from an Orthodontist that really did not know what he was doing. Ryan was able to assess the situation, and fix the issues within the year. He also connected very well with my daughter, and given the trauma that she went through with the last Ortho, looked forward to each appointment.Thanks Dr. Pendleton

Had never been to an orthodontic office before and I have to say I was very very pleased with the amount of care and attention I and my kids received today. A very professional office and a family atmosphere. Even with my little one acting like it was her home they never floundered or got upset at the situation and that means more to me than anything at an office. All the girls were so kind and thoughtful and Dr Pendelton had the best bedside manner. He took great care of my kids and I’m very glad to call him our doctor. Braces are definitely expensive, but that was not their first concern and I’m very appreciative of that. Their first priority was my children. Thank you Dr Pendleton and staff for a wonderful visit. We look forward to coming back.

Dr. Pendelton and all his staff are extremely friendly and professional. I couldn't be happier with my experience so far with my invisalign treatment. I would highly recommend them for both adults and children. I'm super excited about my continued care with such a competent practice!! I believe Dr. Pendelton takes great pride in producing great results.

Dr. Ryan, as he is known by his patients, is absolutely awesome! And, he has top-notch staff to assist. Friendly, capable, and professional. I was so happy to hear Dr. Ryan opened his own office in Leander, it is a testament to his abilities and care for patients that he would have his own practice..and it's beautiful! I've been seeing Dr. Ryan for my Invisalign - I wish I had a "before" pic of my teeth to show what miracles he has accomplished. He is caring, honest, and completely committed to making my teeth the best and straightest they can be! I cannot recommend him more highly! Worth every penny! Whether its braces or invisalign are looking for. Dr. Ryan Pendleton is your guy! I live in southwest Austin ...and happily make the drive to Leander to his beautiful new office!

Dr Pendleton is awesome! My daughter Ally is so happy with her treatment. I am so impressed with their customer service and professionalism with every step of the process! Chelsea in the office is so accommodating. I had to cancel an afternoon appointment, and they offered to come in early to get Ally in before school! She feels special every time she walks in the office! Love them!!

Professional and friendly. I came in for the consultation but I decided to get the braces done from them because what the doctor explain to me makes more sense than where I went to for consultation :)

I can not say enough good things about dr Ryan. I have been in dentistry for 18 years and he’s one of the best doctors I have ever worked with. He also did my braces and my teeth look amazing. You can’t go wrong with Pendleton orthodontics, you are in the right place with a doctor that cares and knows his stuff!

Dr Pendleton is a very experienced and compassionate Orthodontist. In my time working alongside him I have come to know him as someone who is willing to take the proper time to evaluate and treat his patients. His patients remember his keen eye to detail and welcoming presence. Highly recommend him as a top expert in his field.

Dr. Pendleton and his staff are amazing! The free consult was informative and I felt well educated when I left. The small details of their patients name on a welcome sign outside, the clean, home-like waiting room, and the treasure box at the end of the appointment had my girls loving the visit! Chelsea is a wonderful assistant and office manager. I love that she has braces too so she can talk with my girls about her experience. Kathy was awesome talking to my daughter while she prepped my daughter for her braces and assisted Dr. Pendleton. I absolutely recommend this ortho office!

I am a women in my 60's who recently lost a bottom front tooth. My Periodontist wanted to do an implant, but I wasn't sure. After consulting with Dr. Pendleton, I realized that what he said made perfect sense; I needed to fix the underlying problem, which was a bad bite. Without bite realignment, I would continue to have the same issue that caused the tooth to come out in the first place. So here I am 9 months later, almost halfway through treatment with bands & wires. I thought I would look ridiculous with all that mouth metal in middle age, but instead have been told I look 'youthful'..... I'll take that! Thank you Dr. Pendleton!!
