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. Ed Wentz attended Wheaton College where he earned his Bachelor Degree in Biology. He continued his education at Indiana University earning his Doctor of Dental Surgery credentials and then onto the orthodontic residency program at Louisiana State University for his specialty training in orthodontics. 

Dr. Wentz is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics and past President of the Texas Association of Orthodontics. He is also a member of the American Dental Association, American Association of Orthodontists, Southwestern Society of Orthodontists, American College of Dentists, Texas Dental Association, past president of the LSU Orthodontic Alumni Association, past director of Southwestern Society of Orthodontists and was past president of the South Plains District Dental Society.

In his spare time he loves to be with his family. Dr. Lisa Wentz blessed him by becoming his wife in 1986 and they have four fantastic kids – Garrett, Parker, Tucker and Breklyn. He also enjoys hunting, fishing, running, waterskiing and snow skiing.
