What Sets Us Apart

Welcome to Wentz Orthodontics, where you are greeted and treated like family. Our team is guided by the dynamic leadership of Dr. Ed Wentz. He has been creating smiles in an atmosphere that is easy for parents and fun for kids for over 38 years. We want our patients to live life smiling!

Our love of orthodontics began with our father, Dr. Clarence Wentz. He was an orthodontist and the US Army’s consultant to the Surgeon General. As young children, we had the benefit of growing up experiencing the joy our dad received by caring for the orthodontic needs of his patients. We were his patients as well and enjoyed the transformation of our smiles.

About us

Ed Wentz_4

Dr. Ed Wentz

I am thankful for having the opportunity to grow up in a family where I was able to watch my dad enjoy the profession of orthodontics. His passion for orthodontics was contagious, and the transformation orthodontics had on my friends was amazing. It was so rewarding that my brother, sister, and I all chose to follow in his footsteps. For us, our work is truly a family tradition.

Dr. Brandon Tivis

Wentz Orthodontics is blessed to have Dr. Brandon Tivis. He is one of our homegrown smiles. Dr. Tivis was a patient of Dr. Wentz. Dr. Tivis was born and raised in Lubbock. He is a graduate of Trinity Christian High School and attended Texas A&M. He completed his orthodontic education at St. Louis University’s Orthodontic School. Dr. Tivis also completed a cleft lip and palate fellowship. Dr. Tivis is married to Allyssa and they have a precious baby girl, Emerson.

He was Valedictorian of his orthodontic residency program at St. Louis University Center for Advanced Dental Education.

What Sets Us Apart

For some people, life is compartmentalized into neat, little boxes; one for work, one for faith, one for family, and so on. For us work is a natural extension of our families’ lives, our faith in God and a pretty good measure of fun. We approach everything we do with one goal in mind - to make a positive difference in people's lives and to honor God in the process. We have been blessed with a great team that shares our single-minded goal, and we couldn’t be more thankful!

The overall dental health of each patient is our primary concern. We enjoy a comprehensive approach to care by working closely with each patient's family dentist as well as other specialists when treatment calls for interdisciplinary care. We will work together to remove the barriers that are preventing you from having the smile you deserve. You will be presented with different treatment options specifically tailored to your needs and sensitivities. You are in control of your options and we will help guide you to make the choice that is best for you.
