Dr. Brandon M. Wainwright
Dr. Brandon Wainwright was born and raised in the Quad Cities and attended Riverdale schools in Port Byron, Illinois. As a means to help afford college, he served in the National Guard for 6 years.

Dr. Wainwright enjoys charitable orthodontic work for many organized care programs.
Dr. Wainwright envisioned himself working as an orthodontist at a very young age and persistently pursued his goal. Before leaving for dental school, he looked at a map of the Quad Cities and decided that when he came back to this area, he would like to open an orthodontic practice at the base of the I-80 bridge on the Iowa side of the Mississippi River. In the fall of 2010, he and his pediatric dental partners, Dr.’s Chris and Matt Cannon, opened Riverview Dental Specialists in that very location.
In his free time, Dr. Wainwright enjoys home remodeling, automotive and motorcycle hobbies, fishing, shooting, biking, and of course, spending time with his wife and children. One of his more rewarding extra-curricular activities is coaching wrestling for pre-high school kids.
We recognize that all of our patients are unique, and deserve to receive dental and orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs.
