Meet Dr. C:
Dr Clendenen has been committed to serving the people of northeast Oklahoma since 2010 and states as his mission statement: “My goal is to be a living example of hard work, discipline, and dedication; to be the epitome of patience, giving my best, and going the extra mile; to teach my children, as I was taught by my father, how to laugh at myself, how to enjoy life, and how to help others enjoy life with the heart of a servant.”
Dr. Clendenen was born and raised in Los Alamos, NM where his father, H. Leon Clendenen, was the hometown orthodontist. Llon came to Oklahoma to attend Oklahoma Christian University, graduating in 2003 with a BS in Mechanical Engineering. While at OC he met his wonderful wife Lori of Tulsa, OK. and became impressed with northeast Oklahoma’s Green Country, people and culture.
Llon obtained his DDS degree from the University of Missouri-Kansas City graduating in the top of his class, and was then accepted into a two year residency in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. During his residency he also obtained a Master of Science in Oral Biology, completing a thesis on cone beam computed tomography and digital radiography (nerd alert!).
