Dr. Canaan B. Tyner was born in Glens Falls, NY and graduated from Saratoga Central Catholic High School. He obtained his Bachelor of Science in Sports Medicine at Pepperdine University and his dental degree at the University of Buffalo, School of Dental Medicine. He then continued his education at Montefiore Medical Center where he received his certificate of specialty training from the Department of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics.
In addition to traditional orthodontics, his education included extensive training in clear aligner therapy, adult orthodontic treatment, and orthodontics in combination with orthognathic surgery.

He is excited to use this knowledge and to continue to explore the latest in technology in order to offer our patients the most comfortable and efficient orthodontic treatment
