Right in the heart of the Weddington, Marvin Ridge, and Cuthbertson school cluster is an orthodontist whose impressive qualifications are matched only by his own caring demeanor and passion for his work.

Dr. Shane Markey opened Three Leaf Orthodontics, a state of the art orthodontic office, in January of this year at the corner of Providence Rd. and Newtown and is a wonderful option for anyone living in the Waxhaw, Weddington and Wesley Chapel areas. The new purpose-built office provides the facilities needed to offer the latest orthodontic treatment techniques and Dr. Markey’s commitment to continuing education ensures that patients receive the most up-to-date contemporary orthodontic care.

Further ensuring that Dr. Markey is on the beat of current practice are the associations of which he is a part. Some of these associations are:

  • American Association of Orthodontics
  • Southern Association of Orthodontics
  • North Carolina Association of Orthodontists
  • American Dental Association
  • North Carolina Dental Society
  • Southern Dental Society
  • Omicron Kappa Upsilon, National Dental Honor Society
  • Faculty of Dental Surgery, Royal College of Surgeons, London, England

With long term services like those offered in the field of orthodontics, especially when it comes to braces, it is important to choose an orthodontist that is well-qualified. It is equally as important to choose an orthodontist that will make you and your child comfortable. Dr. Markey is exactly that and his location, right in the middle of our community, makes the numerous return visits that come with a set of braces a little easier and he can even have your child back in school on the day of their visit, but you might not want to tell them that.

Dr. Markey is a sponsor of the Marvin Ridge choir, band, athletic booster and theatre as well as the Waxhaw Farmers’ Market, Weddington Middle School’s Baskets Food and Fun and he presented the career of the orthodontist at Weddington Middle School’s Career Day. Dr. Markey also provides oral health and nutrition classes at Cuthbertson Middle School, Waxhaw Elementary and Marvin Ridge Middle School.

Dr. Markey sources any possible tools, utilities and products from the Waxhaw, Weddington and Wesley Chapel community; so when it is time for you or your child to have orthodontic care, support your local community by choosing Three Leaf Orthodontics.
