You've got questions. Pitner Orthodontics has your answers.

Looking for a GREAT orthodontist for you or your child in the Columbia and Chapin area?

Want to learn more about orthodontic options such as braces, Invisalign, and ‘behind-the-teeth’ hidden braces?  


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

1) Two orthodontists, Dr. Leslie Pitner and Dr. Katie Bullwinkel, with unique backgrounds in psychology so they understand the transformation inside and out that comes with getting a beautiful smile.

2) The latest in orthodontic technology. Forget goopy impressions and long treatment times.  We have impression-free digital scanners and 3-D treatment planning tools that make your treatment more comfortable and …of course…FASTER!

3) More options for treatment.  Whether you are looking for traditional braces for your child or more discreet options for yourself, we will find the most ideal option for you. Dr. Pitner has treated more patients with ‘behind-the-teeth’ lingual braces that anyone in SC and lectures around the country on the treatment!

4) We are the experts in orthodontics for adults. Dr. Pitner wrote the book on treating adults – Improve Your Smile, Transform Your Life:  A Guide to Orthodontics for Adults.  We also have an office exclusively for adults – the only office of its kind in South Carolina.

4) 100% Smile Guarantee.  We absolutely guarantee that you will have a great experience at Pitner Orthodontics and that you will LOVE your smile!  Click to learn more.

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.

Connect with Pitner Orthodontics Today!

Makes the orthodontist a great place to come to by making you feel welcome. Everyone treats you like themselves. The appointments are always on time because this office is organized. When I walk in there is always someone there to greet you with a smile. You can sign yourself in easily and they never make you wait. I would recommend this to anyone who needs braces. At the end of your visit you get a nice and sweet treat. While the parents are waiting they can have coffee or tea. This office is right on schedule no matter what.
