McKenna Orthodontics, located at 1839 West Morris Boulevard next to Hamblen Pediatrics in Morristown, has provided orthodontic treatment for children and adults in the Lakeway Area for 18 years.

McKenna Orthodontics was voted “Best Dentist” in the 2020 Citizen Tribune People’s Choice of Hamblen County Awards.

The practice uses braces or clear aligners to align the teeth and reveal the beautiful smile the patient has been looking for. Braces offered include Damon Braces, Clear Connect and Clear Braces.

The Spark Clear Aligner System is made of a lightweight, nearly invisible material that is custom fit for your teeth.

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends the initial orthodontic evaluation should occur at the first sign of orthodontic problems or no later than age 7.

At this age, orthodontic treatment is usually not necessary, but a simple exam can anticipate the best time to begin treatment.

Everyone can benefit from orthodontic treatment.

Adults account for about 20% of orthodontic patients today.

No matter the stage of life, you can benefit from visiting the orthodontist.

Dr. Mark McKenna wanted to become an orthodontist because he was inspired by his father and his passion for helping patients achieve their best smile.

McKenna graduated from the University of Tennessee with a degree in biology before completing four additional years of dental school in Memphis.

His specialty training in orthodontics was completed at Vanderbilt University. McKenna continues his education by attending orthodontic conferences to keep updated on advances in technology and orthodontic techniques.

While always striving to provide the highest quality orthodontic treatment, McKenna Orthodontics prides themselves on the friendly atmosphere in their office, putting patients at ease and treating them like family.

The practice is open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Call 423-581-2000, check out mckennasmiles.com online or McKenna Orthodontics on Facebook.
