Dr. James TenBrook

Dr. James TenBrook has been practicing for nearly three decades. As a Harvard-trained orthodontist, “Dr. T” has treated over 20,000 patients in South Jersey.

Identifying an opportunity to move teeth more quickly and naturally, TenBrook developed and patented his own revolutionary TenBrook T1 and T-Clear Self-Ligating Braces treatment system, which dramatically reduces patients’ actual time in braces while providing more comfort during the process of tooth alignment.

“I only give my patients the best, because I want them to have the best results. I take great care and pride in my work, and my process, and will continue to develop new ways to improve the speed and comfort to create a patient’s best smile.” – Dr. James TenBrook, DMD

He received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Biology from Gettysburg College in Gettysburg, PA, and then proceeded to the Medical University of South Carolina, in Charleston.
