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.

    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!

  • 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'!

  • 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!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’ve always envisioned a better smile for myself, but never as amazing and beautiful as the smile I have now after going to Scenic City Ortho! Kristi and Dr. Prentice have always been amazing and communicative, and working with them my entire journey toward a great smile was phenomenal! Thank you so much! 20 stars! Well deserved!

  • 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.

  • Dr. Prentice is the best Orthodontist with the best staff. He’s extremely informative regarding age appropriate treatment plans and next steps and does not recommend unnecessary procedures. My daughter feels he is trustworthy and loves his fun and friendly personality. She said he’s strict, but not too strict :-). Also, Vivianne, the Treatment Coordinator is an absolute gem. She has a reassuring, cheerful demeanor and makes sure you understand the process and is always sure to answer any questions.

    In summary, Dr. Prentice is knowledgeable, professional and great with children. He is also fun and firm when it comes to dental health and habits. He takes into account the whole child, including social factors, when developing their treatment plan. We also appreciate the time and dedication Dr. Prentice and his staff put into giving back to our local schools and organizations that his patients are a part of.

    To say SCO is such a great place would be an understatement! Each staff member is extremely thorough from start to finish with every appointment. And did I mention friendly?! It feels like you’re being welcomed into one of your closest friend’s home with open arms as soon as you step foot through the front door. They have the best of the best in technology and equipment as well as experience and knowledge in their field. Extremely professional and such a fun place! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to improve their smile.

Anytime I am running late or need to change my appointment they are always so sweet and helpful and they always have smiles on their faces. I would not recommend anywhere else except science city orthodontics for treatment because they truly go above and beyond each and everyday!

    As soon as you walk in you are greeted with a warm smile from the front desk! You are made to feel extremely comfortable each time you visit. The staff are amazing. You are definitely not a number to Dr. Prentice and his staff. You walk away knowing he thought of the best option for YOU! What will make your smile the biggest and brightest!

    I had braces as a teenager but as I got older, I noticed my teeth had shifted and it was affecting my self confidence when I smiled, so I went to see Dr. Prentice and he corrected the teeth that shifted with Invisalign, the greatest thing ever!

    I am forever grateful for my boost of confidence given back to me from everyone involved!

    I was referred to SCO because their great pricing after shopping around town. They won my business from my first consultation being comfortable, informative and honestly just fun. It was relaxed but professional.

    As my Invisalign process began I felt like the staff was using the newest technology and I always felt ‘in the know’ with the timeline once it got into full swing. Throughout my visits, I began to feel like a part of a big family which may seem strange for an Orthodontist but everyone there is sincerely nice and it goes a long way.

    As the process concluded and when I’ve had follow ups, they’ve taken great care of me. I always know I’m getting a great deal. They do incredible work, go check Dr. Prentice and the team out! 😬💥😁

They have the sweetest, most upbeat staff, they are always on time and they know how to work with middle school boys. I’ve been so blown away that I think I’m jumping in next so I too can have a great smile.

  • 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.
