Meet Dr. Clay Lisenby

Combining Science and Art to Create Beautiful Smiles

As an orthodontist, I believe that creating and strengthening relationships is the key to success. I enjoy listening to my patients, sharing in their daily lives, and learning of their dreams. I genuinely care about each person and want them to have the greatest success in their personal and professional lives. Having a beautiful smile, and the confidence that comes along with it, goes a long way toward happiness and success in this world.

My staff and I strive to have great communication with patients and parents, starting with their complimentary consultation. We want to understand their goals and any concerns they might have. This allows me to find the care path that’s right for each person’s specific needs and means the best experience and results for my patients.

My Staff

Each staff member brings something unique to the table when it comes to patient care. They’re talented, experienced, and personable. Each person is amazing at what she does and I’m proud of the work we do. We work hard, every day, and have a great time changing people’s lives for a lifetime!

Education and Continuing Education

  • Bachelor of Science in biology – Georgia College and State University
  • Doctorate of Dental Surgery – Emory University
  • Post Doctorate Certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthodontics- University of Pennsylvania
  • Co-Leader of Spear Study Club

Continuing education is an integral part of my practice. I enjoy completing more than twice the annual number of hours required by the Georgia Board of Dentistry, the American Dental Association, and the American Association of Orthodontists.

Keeping current on the newest technology and techniques enables me to provide patients with the best care and results. It also helps me educate patients in the most effective ways to care for their finished new smiles.

Personal Life

I grew up here in Macon. Outside of work, time with my wife Lea and two daughters, Caroline and Elizabeth, is important to me. So, too, is time with my best friend — my dog Nick — and cat Benni.

I love the outdoors and spend a lot of my free hours enjoying it, especially hunting and fishing.
