Nearly all kids reach an awkward phase—that time in life when their feet seem too big for their bodies, their skin starts breaking out, their voices crack and tears erupt without warning. They can also suffer from permanent teeth that seem to come in at odds with their gum lines. As parents, you can’t do much to control growth spurts and hormones, but you can help your kids get smiles they can be proud of. Stephen Chen, D.D.S., loves to make a positive change in his patients’ lives. “We’re able to facilitate a physical change in a child that will last a lifetime,” he said. “When a kid comes in who’s getting teased at school because of his teeth, it feels great to be able to make a difference for him.”

While you might have seen your orthodontist as a middle or high school student, orthodontists today recommend scheduling your child’s first visit when he or she is seven years old. “There are a few issues we can treat early that you can’t fix at age 12 or 13,” said Dr. Chen, a Diplomate of The American Board of Orthodontics. “The hardest conversation I ever have with parents is to tell them certain treatment options aren’t viable because they’ve waited too long. You can never come in too early. We might tell you to wait a year or two and come back, but there’s no harm in that.”

As a board-certified orthodontist, Dr. Chen spent four years in dental school followed by three years of additional schooling to obtain his master’s degree in orthodontics. His board-certification comes after being evaluated in his specialty and presenting cases before his colleagues. “Board-certification means I’m staying at the top of my field and measuring myself against my peers,” said Dr. Chen. “Many orthodontists are not board-certified.”

Dr. Chen is also a Premier Preferred Provider of Invisalign and Invisalign Teen, making his office a popular place for every family member. “Invisalign is the most popular form for adult correction in my office,” he said. He also offers the popular Damon “bracket-less braces” and lingual braces that are placed on the interior side of the teeth.

Congratulations to Dr. Stephen Chen for being voted LIVING magazine Reader’s Choice for Best Orthodontist in CyFair. 

As a fairly new practice, Texas Orthodontic Specialists utilizes the latest technology and treatment protocols, resulting in a more comfortable experience in a shorter treatment time. It all begins with a complimentary consultation, where “I determine what they have going on and discuss options to fix it,” said Dr. Chen. “Then we come up with a preliminary treatment plan, explore insurance coverage and offer finance options.”

Both of Liz Reeder’s children have been patients of Dr. Chen’s. “One of the most fantastic aspects about Dr. Chen is his talent and meticulous attention to every detail,” Liz said. “He is so good at working with my schedule, and he takes us in as soon as we arrive and gets the job done fast. He always goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable and make sure that you understand what he is doing. He is highly-experienced, friendly and very enthusiastic. If you’re looking for an amazing orthodontist, look no further than Dr. Chen. I’m certain my children will have beautiful smiles! We are so thankful to work with him.”

To keep kids excited about upcoming appointments, Dr. Chen’s office hosts ongoing contests and activities where patients can win concert tickets, iPods and more. “Our ultimate goal is providing exceptional care to our patients and their families,” said Dr. Chen. “We live that every day in our practice.”
