Following his undergraduate degree, he attended the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) for his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree and graduated in 2004.

He also enjoys playing the drums, disc golf, tennis, and watching live music and NFL football. To make an appointment with Dr. Pendleton, call the office in Leander, Texas, or request your visit online today.
Invisalign is incredibly popular with patients and orthodontists in Leander and is the top alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets and bands, the Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth gradually.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and customized to fit snugly over your teeth. To keep your teeth moving in the direction you want, you’ll need to switch your invisible trays out for the next one in the series every one to two weeks, as directed by Dr. Pendleton.
The Invisalign system can only work if you follow the guidelines from Dr. Pendleton. You should wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day during treatment. If you neglect to wear the aligners as directed, it can impede the results and add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is most efficient when correcting many common orthodontic issues, but it may not be right for more severe issues. A free consultation with Dr. Pendleton at Pendleton Orthodontics in Leander will allow us to determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
Braces with Pendleton Orthodontics in Leander are an excellent choice for correcting complex tooth issues. Braces can sometimes work faster to align teeth and close gaps than other treatments, reducing your overall treatment time.
Braces don’t require some of the more complex technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, meaning Leander braces are a cost-effective orthodontic option.
Traditional metal braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools at Pendleton Orthodontics. They’re made of metal or ceramic brackets affixed to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics.
These brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply the gentle pressure that will gradually move the teeth into the positions we want them to be in as long as you have regular adjustments with Dr. Pendleton.
