Dr. Jake Ellender and the staff at Ellender Orthodontics make it our top priority to provide you with personalized service that exceeds your expectations. Our goal is not only to make sure that you achieve the smile of your dreams, but also that you leave our office confident that you have received the best possible patient care.

At Ellender Orthodontics, we focus on five factors of care: expert training, personalized service, comfortable treatment, flexible payments and modern techniques.

Expert Training:

Dr. Jake Ellender has been practicing as a specialist in orthodontics alongside his father since December of 2021. Growing up, Dr. Jake had a keen interest in his father's work and decided to follow in his father and grandfather's footsteps and pursue a career in the field of dentistry.
Dr. Jake completed his undergraduate studies at Louisiana State University in 2015. Graduating in the top 5% of his class, Dr. Jake earned his Doctoral of Dental Surgery degree from the LSU School of Dentistry in 2019. He went on to earn his Master of Science and Certificate of Orthodontic Specialists from the University of Oklahoma in 2021.

Personalized Service:

From the moment you contact our office to your final retainer check appointment, your experience at Ellender Orthodontics is about customer satisfaction. Dr. Ellender will review your records, photos, X-rays and models to determine the best method of treatment for your individual needs. You will then choose the type of braces you want depending on the suggested course of treatment: traditional metal, clear, Invisalign or Invisalign Teen.

Comfortable Treatments:

Today's orthodontic treatment is much more comfortable than it used to be, due to In-Ovation System Braces and shape-memory NiTi wires. In-Ovation system braces softly guide teeth into alignment which places no pressure on the teeth. Using the same technology utilized by NASA, NiTi wires exert a continuous force against the teeth to move them in the right direction, eliminating the need for wire tightening. The combination of In-Ovation braces and NiTi wires reduces a patient's overall time in braces and much of the pain. At Ellender Orthodontics we pride ourselves on making the process of straightening your teeth as comfortable as possible.

Flexible Payments:

We offer flexible appointment scheduling, flexible treatment options and we also offer flexible payment options. During your complimentary consultation our staff will discuss with you the cost of your treatment and available payment plan options so that you can make the best choice for you and your family. We will work with you to create a payment plan that fits your budget, and you will know what to expect before beginning treatment.

Modern Techniques:

Dr. Ellender continues to stay up-to-date on the newest techniques and treatments available through the numerous courses and seminars that he regularly attends. This knowledge enables him to offer the best quality orthodontic care to every patient of any age. Dr. Ellender uses the latest in In-Ovation self-ligating braces in clear and metal, Invisalign and Invisalign Teen.
