Dr. Tatum's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Tatum "Dr. AnnaKate Tatum has been providing quality orthodontic treatment to her patients for almost 5 years. She is proud to offer custom treatment plans to all of her patients. She sets her focus on a good bite as well as a beautiful smile. Dr. Tatum and her staff study patient facial esthetics to make sure that the finished product is not only straight teeth, but it is a beautiful smile with a healthy relationship to the jaw and fits the face correctly! Originally from Harrison, AR, Dr. Tatum loves being able to create beautiful smiles in the community in which she grew up. In her free time, Dr. Tatum enjoys going to the lake, watching sports (especially Razorback football) and spending time with her husband, Jason, and daughter Berkley, 3. The Tatums welcomed a baby brother, Britton, in February 2016."
