He has been in private practice as an orthodontist since July of 2007. Over the last decade, he has practiced in various settings with different practitioners and worked with many treatment modalities to develop a special set of skills to treat his patients. He routinely attends continuing education courses and diligently stays up to date in the field of orthodontics to maintain the highest standard of care for all of his patients. At Pendleton Orthodontics, the team can assist with many orthodontic concerns such as bite problems, tooth alignment issues, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders and sleep apnea. Dr. Pendleton offers many dental solutions that include braces, Invisalign®, surgical orthodontics, retainers, TADS, and other orthodontic devices.
