About us

About Our Practice

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 32 years. We want our patients to live life smiling!

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.

About Our Doctors

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.

Our Incredible Team

The Wentz family is committed to providing patients with high-quality orthodontic care in a fun-filled family environment. In fact, our assistants were among the first in the state of Texas to be certified as orthodontic assistants, many of who have been practicing orthodontics for over 32 years. We are committed to continually educate our team members so we can provide the latest and most up to date orthodontic therapy. We consider our team the best because that is what our patients deserve.
