Meet Dr. Hendrix
Dedicated. Determined. Disciplined.
I am proud to provide a dental practice specializing exclusively in orthodontics for children and adults in my hometown area of Chester County. It has been rewarding to perfect smiles, build lasting relationships, and give back to the community.
A respected dental faculty member once commented that I had “found my calling” when I decided to pursue orthodontics. This specialty conveniently allows me to use both my mind and hands in an innovative and productive manner. It is gratifying to see how a new smile can transform one’s personality and confidence.
I graduated from Wake Forest University in North Carolina with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business. Four years later, I graduated with a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from the University of Maryland School of Dentistry.
I earned a joint Master of Science (MS) degree and Certificate in Orthodontics after completing a three year program at the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry.
I am an active member in the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, the Pennsylvania Dental Association, and the Pennsylvania Orthodontic Association. I am proud to be recognized as a “Top Orthodontist” as voted by my peers.
Beyond the Practice
I have been married to Parker McLean Hendrix for 22 years, and we are the proud parents of two children, David and Kate. When I am not in the office, I am an avid runner and enjoy all outside activities, especially those associated with water.
“My daughter, Dana, got her braces on about 18 months ago. When we first went to visit Hendrix Orthodontics (because they had come so highly recommended!), we sat down with the staff to discuss payment options. Having recently lost my job, I knew it would be a challenge to make the monthly payments, so I explained my situation to the staff, and they were “Wonderful” about it and really accommodated my specific ability to pay. Each visit, the office staff was friendly, courteous, and exceptionally accommodating in everything. Several times I had to change appointment times and/or dates because of Dana’s school activities, and they never gave me a hard time about it. They go out of their way to accommodate personal schedules for families. Today…Dana got her braces off and she looks absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! Dr. Hendrix did such an outstanding job with her teeth, treating her like she was the only patient each time she came in. He really does treat his patients like they’re important, not just another number! I would (and already have!) recommend Hendrix Orthodontics to everyone and anyone who asks me about it! How often is it that you actually enjoy visiting a doctor’s office??!! This is one office that makes every visit pleasant and enjoyable because of the outstanding staff ‘and’ Dr. Hendrix! Thank you all for a wonderful experience!”
“What a fabulous experience… Everyone is amazingly knowledgeable and most importantly FUN! I now have the most wonderful smile…& Dr. Hendrix’s attention to detail was truly top notch! I grew up in many dentist & orthodontists offices…and have truly never had such an enjoyable experience. You couldn’t pick a better team!”
“From day one to the last appointment the staff at Hendrix Orthodontics has been extremely caring, honest, and precise about the treatment plan, program cost, and care provided. Kind and friendly service at every appointment with clean inviting offices. Staff that is always happy and helpful to discuss the progress, schedule appointments and process claims efficiently. Dr. Hendrix was always available to discuss the treatment steps and expectations. Hendrix Orthodontics has provided our daughter with an incredible smile and beautifully straight teeth. Hendrix came recommended to us from friends and we in turn highly recommend this provider for orthodontics care.”
“We want to thank you for the amazing job you have done on both of our boys’ teeth. Nickolas & Alexander were seen by you guys years apart from each other, with Alex being your recent graduate. Based on technology changes and differences with their needs, the process was quite different for the two of them, but the end result was the same. They both have amazing teeth and you guys were kind along the way and never made us wait long for a single appointment. As we told you guys on our last day, we don’t have any more kids of our own to bring to you, but we will always refer anyone that does need an orthodontics practice to you guys, with high praise. Thank you!!!!”
“If you are looking for an orthodontist in the Exton area, Dr. Leiss is the one for you! I cannot say enough about this office. The office is very clean and has sea life pictures on the wall, which has a very calming affect. In addition, because Dr. Leiss has a mild nature, he always makes my daughter feel very comfortable. From the beginning he not only explains his plan to provide the best outcome but also listens to his patients as well. He has the BEST staff! They are extremely welcoming, very professional and accomodating! What more could you ask for?” Thank you, Leiss Orthodontics!”
