We’ve Changed Our Name!

McLendon Orthodontics is now Due West Orthodontics by McLendon and Smith. This name change will allow us to present ourselves as a practice that encompasses both Dr. Smith and Dr. McLendon; and will help strengthen and carry our brand into the future.

Why are we different?

What if you and your child genuinely knew you were loved and cared for deeply by every person at your orthodontic office? You see, our practice isn't really just about braces (although our patients tell us we're really good at what we do!)...And after all, there are hundreds, if not thousands of orthodontists in the North Atlanta area who can do what we do…But what makes us different, is our approach!!

So why choose us? Simply put, our practice is more than braces and smiles. It's about heart. It's about love, trust, and confidence. We exist to be a welcomed addition to your child and teen's life, and you'll feel it from the minute you walk in our office. Welcome to Due West Orthodontics with Locations in Marietta, and Powder Springs.
