Meet Dr. James TenBrook

Dr. James TenBrook is a Harvard trained orthodontist who has been practicing for over two decades and has treated over 20,000 patients in South Jersey. He developed the revolutionary TenBrook T1 and T-Clear Self-Ligating Braces system, which dramatically reduces patients’ actual time in braces and provides more comfort during the process of tooth alignment.

Dr. TenBrook received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Biology from Gettysburg College in Gettysburg, PA. He then proceeded to the Medical University of SC in Charleston, where he earned his Doctorate of Dental Medicine. Afterwards, Dr. TenBrook trained at Emory University where he performed his internship in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Finally, he went on to Harvard University, where he earned his Masters of Medical Sciences and Orthodontic Degree from the Harvard Medical School and Forsyth Dental Center, respectively.

Dr. TenBrook returned to his roots in Southern New Jersey, realizing his dream of bringing high quality orthodontic treatment at an affordable cost to many families. He currently owns and operates eleven offices in New Jersey as well as TenBrook Practice Management Services, which focuses on high efficiency treatment in a private orthodontic practice setting.

Dr. TenBrook is active in many areas of his orthodontic profession. He has been a guest speaker, both nationally and internationally, from Palm Springs, CA to Pretoria, South Africa, where he lectured on treatment efficiencies and practice management solutions. Dr. TenBrook is an active member of the American Dental Association, American Association of Orthodontists, and the Harvard Society for the Advancement of Orthodontics.
