Meet Tyler Prentice, DMD, MS: Doctor

Your Chattanooga Orthodontist

Choosing the right orthodontist for your family is an important decision. At Scenic City Orthodontics, we want you to feel confident that your smile is in the very best of hands. Dr. Tyler Prentice graduated at the top of his dental school class at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He then completed his three years of additional training at UAB to become an orthodontist.

Dr. Prentice is a board-certified orthodontist, a designation that only 30% of orthodontists carry, and he is a Platinum Provider for Invisalign. These accreditations signify Dr. Prentice's commitment to continuing his education to stay at the forefront of this ever-evolving industry.

Dr. Prentice grew up in Canada, just outside of Toronto, Ontario. He and his wife, Stacey, have three children, Ben, Katie Beth and Will, and one dog, Holly Peanut Butter. In his off time, Dr. Prentice can be found cheering on his kids' sports fields, on the trails training for a triathlon or surfing and fishing at the lake.

  • This is hands down the best and most professional staff i think i have ever experienced in my life. Dr. Prentice is absolutely great and the best orthodontist in the city, most likely one of the best in the country. My Invisalign treatments were perfect and fast. This is the only place i would go if i were anybody looking for orthodontic care. When you go please say hi to bridget for me, she is at the front desk! She is a major sweetheart and give her a big hug!!!!!!!!!!!

    Best orthodontic office around! The people are incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and fun. Dr. Prentice is very professional in his field. The office is equipped with all the latest technology to make treatment super smooth and effective. I had a great time with the cutting edge technology of Invisalign braces here. Highly recommended!

  • 5 star ratingDr. Prentice & his team are the best! If you need to consult with an orthodontist in Chattanooga, look no further! He is tops in his field and is thorough as well as conservative. We were there again today straightening up a 'rogue' lower tooth! He truly cares about each person he treats, whether children or adults. His staff is always warm and welcoming, they are excellent at remembering all the details about my daughter. He is always doing fun, interactive things throughout his office and on various social medias. Go see these people, you will definitely be thanking me! Very cool place to get 'straightened out'!

    Seven out of five stars for Scenic City Ortho! Dr. Prentice and his lovely staff are THE absolute best. Are you an adult like me wanting Invisalign treatment? Perhaps your almost-perfect kiddos need braces? You'll always be treated like family here, and your concerns will be addressed with the utmost care and professionalism.

    Appointment times are honored with little wait time; every technician is always on point; and Dr. P is the coolest orthodontist in town! This top-notch SCO crew operates to near perfection, so why would you want anyone else taking care of that beautiful smile? Fix your smile, fix your life.

    Best ortho place ever!! I had gone to 3 different orthodontists in Cleveland and none compares to scenic city. Other places I would have to wait half a year just to get an appointment for them to look at my case. I’m so thankful I came here! They attended me right a away with amazing customer service! Not to mention they have someone who speaks Spanish if you need it :) I was so happy with my visit everything was done in one day, And i left with my braces on.

  • 5 star ratingCouldn't be happier with the level of care and treatment planning from the entire staff at Scenic City. Dr Prentice is the kindest orthodontist you could ask for! Both myself and my daughter are undergoing treatment (with braces) and highly recommend this practice for all your straight-teeth needs!

    If you consider going somewhere else for orthodontic treatment, you are making a huge mistake.

    Dr. Prentice and his entire staff have been nothing but awesome to our son since our very first visit and we would not hesitate to recommend his practice to anyone.

    Amazed once again! Dr. Prentice saves the day - once again! My daughter's permanent lower retainer broke, resulting in a shift in her teeth. We called & got in right away. He is so great with her, as is the entire staff! Thank you so much, Dr. T, for making the 'fix' as painless & quick as possible. I recommend Scenic City Ortho for all orthodontic needs - he offers a no charge consult too, so call today!
