Dr. Derek Hou, DMD, MSD

CERTIFIED SPECIALIST IN ORTHODONTICS

During my time in practice, I’ve seen hundreds of hours spent in the waiting room and thousands more hours of missed school, work, social obligations, sports games, and more, as patients rearrange their lives to fit into an office’s busy schedule. I wanted to create a new kind of orthodontic office where the opposite is true: we fit our treatment into our patients’ lives, letting them enjoy all of life’s big moments without any interruption. We believe in prioritizing our patient’s smile and our patient’s time.
