Meet Dr. Prettyman:
Dr. Prettyman was born and raised in Charleston, West Virginia. He graduated Valedictorian in high school, and then attended West Virginia University for undergraduate and dental school, where he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree and graduated at the top of his class with Highest Honors. Following dental school, Dr. Prettyman was accepted into the prestigious orthodontic residency at Virginia Commonwealth University/Medical College of Virginia, in which he earned his Orthodontic Certificate and Masters of Science Degree.
Following residency, Dr. Prettyman and his wonderful wife, Stephanie, moved to the great Queen City and were blessed with two amazing children (Jackson and Reagan). During his spare time, Dr. Prettyman enjoys golfing, boating/skiing, basketball, and watching movies. He is also very musically inclined and can play the guitar, saxophone, and piano. During football season, the whole family loves cheering on their WVU Mountaineers and Pittsburgh Steelers (even though the Carolina Panthers are growing on them).
Professionally, Dr. Prettyman has been involved with several research projects and has been published in orthodontic literature. He has given presentations at National and Regional Dental and Orthodontic meetings and even had the privilege of presenting topics at the University of Messina in Italy.
Dr. Prettyman loves caring for his patients and strives to give them the most beautiful smile possible to instill the self-confidence they need to shape a successful future. He devotes much of his time to communicating with his patients and their family and developing valuable relationships with them along the way. He loves having fun at the office and will ensure that you do as well.
