The Pitner Orthodontics Team

Dr. Leslie Pitner has put together the top team in orthodontics in the Carolinas! Every person at Pitner Orthodontics has a passion for helping you to achieve your best smile while enjoying a great time in our office. From the day you first open the door to our practice to the day your treatment is complete, you will be greeted as a friend and spend time with a team of people dedicated to making your day better. From making your appointments to tracking down all of your insurance benefits, our office staff is focused on making the process as smooth and convenient as possible. Our clinical staff has over 50 years of experience (and no – we aren’t that old!). We take pride in making every visit easy and fun.

Our Team

Brittany Litteral

Orthodontic Assistant

I have been with Pitner Orthodontics as an assistant since 2012. I was here in 2011, for a short internship, and absolutely loved it! I live in Lexington with my husband, Elliott and our daughter Paisley and a Maltipoo, Callie; and our Lab named Tank.

Cheri McClardy

Appointment Coordinator

I am the Front Desk Coordinator and I have been with Pitner Orthodontics since March 2017.  This is my first job in the dental field and I love it!

I grew up in Bethune, a small town in SC. I graduated from USC with a degree in Spanish. I have a  daughter named Chandler.  I love Gamecock football and my free time is spent with my daughter and shopping.

What makes us unique at Pitner Orthodontics is that we’re all female practice. We take pride in giving our patients the best experience possible in a professional, yet fun environment.

Courtney Rauch

Orthodontic Assistant

I have been an orthodontic assistant at Pitner Orthodontics since 2005. I had braces with Dr. John Pitner as a teenager and always wanted to be a part of helping people achieve beautiful smiles. I grew up and still live in Chapin with my husband, Karl; daughter, Riley Rae; and a son Reid. We have two Boykin Spaniels, Jasmine and Daisy who we love dearly. I enjoy spending time with my family and being outdoors. On the weekends, you may find us hunting or fishing.

Gail Branham

Office Manager and Insurance Coordinator

I am Gail and I am the Office Manager and Insurance Coordinator.  I have been a part of the Pitner team for six years  I have one son Jason and a granddad Ferguson. My free time is spent getting together with friends and family and I enjoy going out on the lake. What makes Pitner Orthodontics unique is that we offer our patients every option in orthodontics along with the latest technology.  But it isn’t just the technology – we care about our patients and consider each of them family.

JoAnn Uhl

Treatment Coordinator

I have worked at Pitner Orthodontics for 11 years.  I am the Treatment Coordinator, so at your first visit,  you will see me along with Dr. Pitner. I love being able to meet new patients everyday. I pride myself in making sure you or your child are leaving our office with a full knowledge of your treatment plan.

In my free time, I teach dance and Zumba classes at our local YMCA. I also love to work in my yard. But my favorite thing to do is spend time with my family. I have 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and my husband Bill of 35 years.  I orginally grew up in Oregon, but South Carolina has been my home for more than 30 years.

I think what sets us apart at Pitner Orthodontics is our love for working with people and the love of what we do here – creating new and beautiful smiles.

Kat Barr

Orthodontic Assistant

I’m Kat, and I have been a part of Pitner Orthodontics since 2006. My family and I moved here from Arkansas and took an “extended vacation” back to Arkansas in 2010. We are back in South Carolina and it is our home! I have been an orthodontic assistant since 2000.

I am married to Matt and have two children, Kelsey and Matthew. We also have two dogs and a bearded dragon. I love spending time with my family, cooking, baking, working out, and going to church.

I love having the opportunity to be a part of such a life-changing experience.  I am proud of the advanced technology we offer to make treatment faster and more comfortable, and I enjoy being a part of an all female practice.
