Since 1983, Dr. Ray McLendon and the team at Clear Choice Orthodontic Associates have helped over 25,000 patients in the Houston area transform their happy and healthy smiles. Clear Choice Orthodontic Associates has treated cover models, TV stars, world-class athletes – and even family members of local dentists! Dr. McLendon has also been recognized as a world leader in Invisalign and has consulted with the Wall Street Journal and local news media regarding his orthodontic expertise. No matter what your condition may be, we have likely helped a similar patient in our years of experience. We are happy to show you before and after pictures to provide examples of our exceptional results.
If this is your or your loved one’s first time seeing the orthodontists at Clear Choice Orthodontic Associates, then we thank you for giving us the chance to provide you with quality orthodontic care. As a new patient at our Houston area offices, we invite you to enjoy our Dr. McLendon Smile Analysis package, using the unique McLendon Method. This package includes an office tour, a complete exam with x-rays, and a comprehensive consultation with one of our expert orthodontists (a $250 value, yours FREE!)
Your exam and consultation will also utilize the McLendon Method of facial analysis. What makes the McLendon Method different from other orthodontists’ analyses? At Clear Choice Orthodontic Associates, we know you want a wide, beautiful smile, so we conduct a comprehensive, individualized analysis for each patient, not a standard cookie-cutter assessment. We examine your individual facial structure to ensure your smile will be centered – not too high or too low – and we provide a treatment methodology tailored specifically for you or your loved one.
Orthodontist Dr. Ray McLendon and his team at Clear Choice Orthodontic Associates are thankful for families who entrust us with their orthodontic care. To help show our gratitude, we offer a 10% family discount to all additional family members needing treatment. In fact, we’ll work with your family to make sure you have customized, flexible payment options depending on your family size and your need. Simply ask us about our Family Discount and we’ll take care of the rest!
Additionally, we are one of the few practices in the greater Houston area that accepts the insurance of First Responders and Teachers. Although it costs Clear Choice more, we want to share our appreciation for the sacrifices you make for our community.
Every orthodontics office has its own structure for fees; different doctors may charge differently for various procedures, particularly for retainers and post-braces examinations. At Clear Choice Orthodontic Associates, we are proud to offer the Straight for Life program! Beyond providing TWO sets of retainers in your overall fees from the moment you start treatment, we also:
The Straight for Life program is contingent upon yearly exams, but there are no hidden fees or charges and no extra charge for your two sets of retainers. You trust us with your teeth, and we take that responsibility very seriously. By eliminating unexpected costs, Clear Choice Orthodontic Associates in the greater Houston area is a name you can rely on – for life!

Many dental and doctor offices want you to fit into their schedules. Their limited hours coincide with the typical school or work day, making it difficult to schedule an appointment without disrupting your entire day. You will find the opposite to be the case at Clear Choice Orthodontic Associates. Our founder Dr. McLendon’s parents were both teachers, and he was raised to appreciate the importance of a consistent education. This is why we strive to offer flexible appointment availability to help ensure that your children never miss school – and that you don’t have to miss any work!
To help make your life easier and your appointment time meaningful, we have adapted our hours to include appointment availability as early as 7:30am and as late as 6:00pm. We even have Saturday appointments! To schedule a convenient appointment today, contact us at 281.587.4900 or click here.

When it comes to orthodontic procedures, cost can be a major concern. At Clear Choice Orthodontic Associates, we try to help with that concern by processing most types of insurance. We are also one of the few practices in the greater Houston area that accepts First Responder and Teacher insurance.
If you don’t have insurance, or if your insurance won’t cover all of your treatment, we work with several companies, including CareCredit, to offer you a variety of affordable monthly payment options. We also offer in-house 0% financing for treatment. Our primary concern is ensuring you and your family receive the best orthodontic care available when you need it, without having to worry about the cost.
