Three Leaf – Your Trusted Orthodontist In SouthPark

Three Leaf Orthodontics offers a wide range of orthodontic treatments, including:

Prevention And Early Interceptive Treatments

We perform orthodontic screenings on kids as young as 7 years old. 

Orthodontic screening for children beginning at age 7 is one of the most effective ways to prevent complex issues with the alignment or spacing of teeth and jaws. Treatment may not be needed immediately, but preventive screening visits allow Dr. Markey and our team to monitor your child’s teeth as they develop, ensuring early detection if issues do arise.

Common orthodontic concerns that can be addressed by early interceptive treatment include:

  •     Crowding: teeth are crooked and overlap due to lack of space to develop
  •     Underbite: bottom teeth rest in front of top teeth
  •     Overbite: top teeth rest too far in front of bottom teeth, and cover the bottom teeth more
  •     Cross bite: top and bottom teeth do not align
  •     Open bite: front teeth do not touch when teeth are closed
  •     Gapped teeth: large, uneven spaces occur between teeth
  •     Protruding teeth: one or more teeth are angled outward


Braces are the most common form of orthodontic treatment. They are highly effective at correcting a wide range of orthodontic issues. Traditional braces involve the use of metal or tooth colored, ceramic brackets that are placed on your teeth with adhesive and connected by wire. With modern advancements, braces are less invasive, are more comfortable, and frequently require fewer visits than in the past.


Looking for Invisalign in South Charlotte? We offer this award-winning clear aligner treatment at affordable prices! Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen® use a series of clear, removable aligners that are worn securely over your teeth. Since the custom-made Invisalign® aligners are clear, they are designed to allow patients of any age to receive orthodontic treatment discreetly.

Surgical Orthodontics

For severe cases, Dr. Markey may recommend orthognathic surgery. We’ll team up with your dentist and oral surgeon to come up with a plan that works best for your unique situation.

Orthodontist in Waxhaw and South Charlotte

“Just wow! We're so glad we found Dr. Shane! Being new to the South Charlotte area, we did some research to find an orthodontist in Waxhaw that had extensive experience but also great bedside manner. They were super low pressure about our decision, and their flexible payment plans are very affordable. Bottom line is that we didn't even want to "shop" elsewhere after our first visit. Thanks so much, Dr. Shane! Keep up the great work serving Waxhaw.“
