The Hanis & Stevenson Orthodontics team has been providing comprehensive orthodontics care for 50 years, serving patients of all ages in the Katy, Fulshear, Fort Bend and West Houston communities. Dr. Hal Stevenson officially retired at the end of 2020, allowing Dr. Shad Hanis the opportunity to add a new partner to the team. As a result, the clinic is gradually transitioning to its new name of HANIS ORTHODONTICS.
Introducing Dr. Bailey Proft
The Hanis Orthodontics family is thrilled to welcome Dr. Bailey Proft. She was the obvious choice and perfect complement to Dr. Hanis’ practice, sharing his same values, kindheartedness, and exceptional credentials.
An east coast native, Dr. Proft graduated from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester with a degree in biological psychology. She moved to Chicago, teaching fourth grade with Teach for America – an organization that brings quality education to underrepresented communities. She then attended UCONN for her Doctorate of Dental Medicine. Her orthodontic residency was completed at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, where she also earned her Orthodontic Certificate and Master of Science in dentistry.
“I’m extremely honored to be a member of this team and look forward to providing the same level of care that Dr. Hanis has given to the Katy community for years,” Dr. Proft says. She loves traveling, cycling, and Blue Bell Ice Cream, claiming mint chocolate chip as her favorite. “We are thrilled to have her join our practice and can’t wait for you to meet her,” Dr. Hanis says. “Together, we will continue to lead the way in orthodontic solutions using state-of-the-art technology and our patient-focused philosophy.”
What Patients Love About Hanis Orthodontics
Hanis Orthodontics considers each patient an important, and valued member of their family. Third and even fourth generations of families keep returning as patients, and a reason why they have been voted Best Orthodontist in Katy numerous times. You’ll feel right at home the moment you arrive for your appointment. The friendly and accommodating team sets the tone for a relaxed visit in a comfortable environment. Patients appreciate both orthodontists’ warm, caring demeanor and professional approach backed by years of specialized experience. Inviting amenities for both kids and adults include video games and a coffee/hot chocolate bar. The zero percent, in-house financing is an added bonus, enabling orthodontic treatment to be affordable and stress-free.
Invisalign Clear Aligners
Innovative technology and state-of-the-art equipment allows the team to be at the forefront of orthodontic care for both children and adults. Dr. Hanis knows Invisalign clear aligners are more than just a tool to straighten teeth and improve smiles. “Invisalign is a multifaceted technique used to correct even the most complicated issues in orthodontics,” he explains. “It provides patients with healthier mouths and improved function for genuinely happy smiles.” Patients love the convenience Invisalign offers as well as the impressive results.
Top 1% Diamond+ Invisalign Provider
Hanis Orthodontics is proud to be a Top 1% Diamond+ Invisalign Provider, the highest status possible. This status and training affords Drs. Hanis and Proft the ability to treat complex issues with outstanding outcomes. Dr. Hanis has successfully treated more than 2,000 patients with clear aligners and is considered a top Invisalign expert in the Houston area. They also offer Smile Express, a 6 month doctor overseen, at-home Invisalign treatment for adults.
Involvement in the Katy area is an integral part of Hanis Orthodontics. They enjoy supporting the community through Katy ISD schools by providing safety patrol vests for area elementary schools and by sponsoring high school dance teams and sports teams. Additionally, their participation in
local health fairs personally connects them with people
