Dr. Sam Pulitzer at Pulitzer Orthodontics in Kingsport, TN

Meet Dr. Sam Pulitzer

Dr. Sam’s energy is palpable as he greets his patients with a fist bump and a warm hello. It is important to him to share the details of orthodontic decision-making with his patients and their parents for a true team approach. He leaves no stone unturned to achieve the healthiest and best orthodontic results. A team sports enthusiast, he enjoys following his favorite teams, the LSU Tigers and the New Orleans Saints, but will talk about your favorite team too. Outside of work and family time, Dr. Sam enjoys a competitive game of pickleball or soccer and having a good laugh with his teammates!

Sam also enjoys sharing with others his passion for orthodontics by teaching. He offers multiple lectures annually to dentists, hygienists, and dental assistants. We are so grateful to have a doctor who builds an inviting atmosphere in our office and strives to provide the best orthodontic journey possible!
