Kurt Whittet, DMD, MS  Orthodontist

KW

After working 8 years as an electrical engineer, Dr Whittet attended Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine and graduated in 1999. He then went on to complete a postgraduate program in orthodontics and to receive an M.S. degree in dentistry from the University of Alabama School of Dentistry. Dr Whittet enjoys orthodontics because it gives him the opportunity to use a combination of both science and art to improve the appearance of a person’s smile.

Prior to joining the team at Maple Shade, Dr Whittet practiced as an orthodontist for 10 years in Chicago and Wisconsin. Dr Whittet is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists and the Illinois Society of Orthodontists. He enjoys sports, movies, going to the gym, and spending time with friends and family.
