Meet Kendra Manning, DDS, MS

Dr. Kendra C. Pratt Manning is one of only a handful of Board-Certified orthodontists in The Woodlands. She is a local graduate of Magnolia High School where she was valedictorian and cheerleader and ran track. She is proud to be serving the community in which she grew up.


Dr. Manning was inducted into two prestigious dental societies upon graduation—Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society and Alpha Omega—which honors less than one percent of dental students nationwide. She also received the Awards for Excellence in Basic Science and Excellence in Clinical Dentistry.

Dr. Manning continued her excellence in education at the University of Texas Dental Branch at Houston, where she was the Chief Resident her first year and worked hard to author a published article in the American Dental Journal while earning her Master of Science degree in Orthodontics.

She scored in the top two percent in the nation on her written exam for Board Certification. She shortly thereafter began her path to full diplomat status through the American Board of Orthodontics. Her clinical exam utilized patients she treated in her private practice in The Woodlands.

Understanding the Role of an Orthodontist

While dentists provide general dental care, orthodontists are specialists who have undergone additional training specifically focused on correcting misalignments of the teeth and jaws. This specialized training makes orthodontists highly skilled in diagnosing, preventing, and treating dental and facial irregularities.

Seeing an orthodontist for teeth straightening is advantageous because they are experts in this field, using a variety of techniques and tools to straighten teeth, correct misaligned jaw structure, and improve the overall function of your mouth. By focusing exclusively on orthodontics, they can offer more advanced and effective treatments, ensuring that you receive the best possible outcome.

The Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontic treatment offers extensive benefits that go beyond just aesthetics:

Physical Health Benefits

Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean, which reduces the risk of periodontal disease and cavities. Orthodontic care also helps in distributing oral forces adequately, which can decrease the risk of tooth wear and tear and improve jaw alignment, potentially reducing symptoms of TMJ disorders.

Mental and Emotional Benefits

A straight smile can significantly boost your self-confidence and self-esteem. Orthodontic treatment can transform the way you view yourself and interact with others, often leading to a more positive outlook and increased happiness.

Social Benefits

Aesthetically pleasing smiles are often associated with attractiveness and social acceptance. People with beautiful smiles are perceived as more approachable and successful, which can enhance both personal and professional relationships.

Professional Advantages

In the competitive world of business, a confident smile can make a lasting impression. A well-aligned smile can convey confidence and professionalism, potentially influencing career opportunities and advancements.
