At your next (or first) visit with Whitehead Orthodontics, take a look around. You’ll notice something very special. You’ll see your neighbors chatting it up over a cup of coffee, your friends enjoying a WO cone, your teammates reliving Friday night’s game, your family sharing a hug, and your community leaders discussing the next big event. There’s no secret sauce, or magic, it’s just how we live. Dr. Whitehead and our elite team of professionals love what we do. We are committed to providing the highest quality orthodontic treatment in a professional, caring, and fun environment, but also an environment where patients are the top priority, and where getting braces is often the first step in changing lives.

Over and over, our patients tell us that they feel like visiting with Whitehead Orthodontics is like coming home to their second family. We gush, because we feel it, too! We want to know our patients by name, not a number, and we celebrate with them. We want each visit to be the best part of their day, because it’s so often the best part of ours!

From your first phone call, until your big smile reveal, we want you to leave us thinking, “WO! That was amazing!” Our smiles are Smiles Made Exceptional.

Our Reviews

Dr Whitehead and staff are awesome. Our daugther has had her braces since August 2018 and the transformation of her teeth and smile have evolved before our eyes. Dr. Whitehead is very knowledgeable and we trust his plan for Elizabeth. The staff is very caring and we know we are in good hands with them. I highly recommend Dr Whitehead for your orthodontic needs.

I have 4 daughters who have required braces. Two of them (twins) have used Dr. Whitehead and we have had a couple of issues. First of all, Dr. Whitehead’s office made a couple of errors recording my payments properly, requiring me to do a fair amount of work providing proof of payment and following up. Further, my dentist recommended that I call Dr. Whitehead about some molars that had not come in for each of my twins which may nor may not require additional work. I have made 2 phone calls over the last 3-4 weeks to Dr. Whitehead and have yet to receive a return phone call. Whether the molars will be an issue in the future or not, time will tell, but apparently Dr. Whitehead does not seem to want to discuss it. Meanwhile, there are other options in Lexington for orthodontics (namely, Dr. Hines) and given the better experience we’ve had with the other orthadontist over Dr. Whiitehead, I would not recommend using Dr. Whitehead.

At my very first consult I was so embarrassed having to get braces as an adult. Dr. Whitehead and his team made my experience so pleasant and made me feel so at ease with my journey. It doesn’t matter how old you are, everyone deserves a beautiful smile. I couldn’t have chosen a better practice for my care. Thank you so much Dr. Whitehead and staff! My children aren’t ready for braces yet but when the time is right, I wouldn’t take them anywhere else.

Lexington is so lucky to have an Orthodontist of Dr. Whitehead’s caliber. He did an amazing job — getting an excellent result in exactly the time predicted! And he has one of the nicest staffs anywhere! A superb experience — I recommend him highly.

My experience as an adult with braces was a breeze with Dr. Whitehead and team! I had braces in the 80’s as a teen, having no idea back then that my teeth could change over the decades to a point that I would want/need to straighten them once again. Braces and retainers are completely different today, much improved and more comfortable from my first experience as a NC teen. Dr. Whitehead was excellent from our first consult in explaining the process. Appointments were smooth, quick, and always timely to accommodate my busy schedule. Very comfortable office environment and friendly staff! Both of our teens are also in braces treatment here and doing well. My braces are now off, and with the permanent bottom retainer he placed and comfortable clear retainer I wear nightly, my teeth will not move again! I love the results and so happy I did this! I highly recommend Whitehead Orthodontics as your place of choice, you will not be disappointed! Kelly Blose

Whitehead Orthodontics has been good to our family! Not only is it a great practice with knowledgeable, skilled staff, they have excellent customer service. The business side of the office has women who are also very personable and accommodating. The waiting area is comfortable and appointments run efficiently and quickly. Aside from his skills as a great Orthodontist, Dr. Whitehead, himself, is very friendly and genuine. Our oldest got his braces here and when it was time for our next child to get braces, we didn’t think to go anywhere else.
