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

You know you want a better smile for yourself or your child, yet you may have concerns that are causing you to hesitate. Maybe you are worried about how long the process will take and how you can fit it into your busy life. Or maybe a fear of discomfort is holding you back. Or it’s possible you just don’t want anyone to see that you are straightening your teeth. At Pitner Orthodontics, we have answers to all of these questions and more. Whether you are concerned about speed, appearance, comfort —  anything at all — our job is to help you get to your best smile as easily and confidently as possible.


Pitner Orthodontics is the choice for thousands of families in the Midlands of South Carolina. Why?

1) We help you get a better smile faster! How?  We have invested in the latest technology such as intraoral scanners (no goopy impressions here!), Suresmile, Invisalign, and AcceleDent so that Dr. Leslie Pitner can design your smile with precision and deliver your result faster than ever possible before.  No other office in the Columbia area offers these premium treatments so that you can be done with braces or Invisalign 4-6 months faster.

2) We offer you the most advanced options for treatment including Invisalign and Suresmile. Dr. Pitner specializes in Invisalign treatment for teens and adults.  Learn more about how Invisalign can make straightening you or your child’s teeth easier than you ever imagined.  Dr. Pitner has also treated more patients with ‘behind-the-teeth’ invisible braces than anyone in South Carolina. 

3) Dr. Leslie Pitner is a recognized expert in orthodontics and wrote the book on treating adults – Improve Your Smile, Transform Your Life:  A Guide to Orthodontics for Adults.  Pitner Orthodontics also has an office exclusively dedicated to adults – Pitner Downtown – the only office of its kind in the entire Southeastern United States.

4) Do you wonder how much it will hurt?  AcceleDent solves that problem through gentle vibrations that ease discomfort and activate the cells in your bone, also enabling your teeth to move more quickly.  AcceleDent can be added to any treatment including braces and Invisalign.

5) 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.
