When Dr. Liana Medina opened her state-of-the-art orthodontic practice in Katy last year, it took her no time at all to stand out as one of the area’s premier orthodontists. She is considered a “Super Doc” by patients and parents who happily refer friends and family to her. Just as important, her skill and commitment to excellence in dentistry are second-to-none. After earning a Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.), followed by years of post-doctorate training in orthodontics, Dr. Medina became board certified by the American Board of Orthodontics—an accomplishment achieved by less than 50 percent of orthodontists.
“It’s rewarding to see the significant impact a straight smile has on our patients’ lives,” Dr. Medina says. “Your smile is your calling card. It has a positive effect on your self-confidence and can even help your career. Straight teeth also help you maintain good oral health, which is tied to your overall health.”
Extraordinary Orthodontic Care from an Expert
Dr. Medina’s office is an upbeat place where both kids and adults feel at home. She and her talented team also strive to give their patients a high level of personalized attention. Having joined a large dental office before becoming a sole practitioner, Dr. Medina applies what she learned from this experience to her practice.
“We have a friendly, experienced, tightly knit staff, who want our patients to feel welcome and to know we appreciate them as much as I do,” Dr. Medina says. “I like to spend one-on-one time with my patients. We talk about their concerns, I answer questions, and we discuss their progress.”
To her knowledge, Dr. Medina is the only female orthodontist in Katy. Patients benefit from the gentle, female touch and deeply compassionate care she brings to orthodontics. She also takes pride in staying up-to-date on the latest advances and offers several treatment options so she can create a treatment plan customized for the unique needs of each individual.
Meet Dr. Liana Medina
Undergoing orthodontic treatment as a child motivated Dr. Medina to become an orthodontist. She earned a bachelor’s degree in general sciences and a doctorate in dental medicine from the University of Puerto Rico. She continued with post-graduate education at the University of Texas, earning a Certificate in Orthodontics and masters in dentistry in 2008. Dr. Medina is board certified, holds the title of Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, and is a member of numerous professional associations. Outside of the office, Dr. Medina enjoys jogging, watching movies, exercising, and interior design. She and her husband, Jose Manuel “Manny” Aponte, and their two miniature schnauzers, Tango and Gucci, reside in Katy.
