You've got questions. Pitner Orthodontics has the answer.

Are you looking for a great orthodontist for your child or for yourself in the Columbia and Chapin area? Or maybe you just want to learn more about more about braces, Invisalign, and completely hidden lingual braces. Either way you have come to the right place!


Pitner Orthodontics is recognized as the premier orthodontic practice in the Midlands of South Carolina. Why?

1) Two orthodontists, Dr. Leslie Pitner and Dr. Katie Bullwinkel, who have unique backgrounds in psychology so they understand why you want a great smile for yourself or your child and know how to deliver that smile with a great experience.

2) Technology that no other practice in Columbia SC offers. This includes impression free digital scanners and 3-D planning of your smile before you start. This technology makes your treatment more comfortable and faster!

3) More options for treatment – whether you are looking for traditional braces for your child or more discreet options such as Invisalign or completely hidden braces, we have the ideal option for you. Dr. Pitner has treated more patients with hidden lingual braces (attached to the back of your teeth) that anyone in South Carolina and is often an expert lecturer on the treatment.

If you need more proof, all the beautiful smiles and happy faces you see on our site are patients of Pitner Orthodontics! Check out our testimonials to see how excited our patients are.

Meet Dr. Leslie Pitner

I love creating beautiful smiles and I feel privileged to serve my patients and be a small part of their lives! I take pride in caring for each patient to the best of my ability. It is my purpose every day to pass on my enthusiasm and commitment to each patient and family that is a part of our practice.

Unlike other orthodontists, I have an unique educational background in art and psychology so I understand exactly how to create the most beautiful smile for each patient and the huge role a smile plays in how other see us and how we feel about ourselves. You could say that making people smile is in my DNA as I am very proud to continue the practice begun by my father, Dr. John Pitner, over 40 years ago.
