Brace yourself for an exciting atmosphere where patients are celebrated and appreciated. Step inside the office of Smile Doctors Braces by Forrest Orthodontics and you’ll see why patients of all ages love coming to see this amazing team. Pillars of the community for more than 20 years, Dr. Forrest, Dr. Winkelmann, Dr. Panos, and their all-star team of orthodontic professionals are in the smile-making business. So much more than straightening teeth, “It’s all about giving our patients the confidence to live the life they want with a smile they can’t wait to share”, says Dr. Forrest. Smile Doctors offers a modern facility that features inviting, family-friendly spaces with state-of-the-art technologies.  They make getting braces and follow-up appointments a super-fun experience! One big, happy “family,” Dr. Forrest’s team welcomes you with joyful, contagious smiles every time.

An Office Designed to Boost Your Smile to the Next Level

The orthodontic industry is constantly evolving, with new technologies and treatment options.  Dr. Forrest and the entire Smile Doctors family are committed to investing in continuing education courses in order to stay abreast of the research and development in techniques, technology, and materials.  Numerous continuing education courses focused on orthodontic technological advances allow Dr. Forrest and his team to treat even the most challenging cases in patients of all ages. The office features the latest in technology, the iTero Scanner, which provides 3D impressions and a computerized outcome simulation, helping patients visualize how their teeth may look after treatment.

The Smile Doctors team feels it’s important for you to choose the treatment that is best suited for your lifestyle, whether it’s Invisalign or the Damon self-ligating braces. Not all clear aligners are created equal, so the team utilizes the most innovative Invisalign aligner system, providing patients with a precise, predictable treatment. Because finances are never allowed to get in the way of having a beautiful smile, Smile Doctors graciously offers zero percent in-house financing to accommodate any budget.    

Celebrating is What We Do!

Whether it’s celebrating braces going on or braces coming off, there’s always a reason to be excited!  On any given day, the entire Smile Doctors team enjoys acknowledging their patients’ awesomeness and achievements. From making the cheer squad to being promoted up the ladder of success, they take pride in loving on their patients first and straightening their teeth second. If you’ve noticed their eye-catching t-shirts worn around town, there’s a reason; their famous t-shirt contest gives patients the opportunity to win a private, VIP movie party for themselves and 11 of their friends in the office’s dazzling movie theater. “Having the opportunity to connect with our patients, their families, and friends in a fun, cool, and relaxed environment is what is most important to us,” says Dr. Forrest. The parents can relax in the “living room,” catching up with one another over a warm cup of coffee while the kids hang out, play video games, and enjoy a movie in a theater all to themselves.

Connecting with the Katy Community

Both Dr. Forrest and Dr. Winkelmann have been honored to care for second and now third generations of patients. “The years of dedication from my awesome team have been a huge part of my success,” Dr. Forrest says. “I have been blessed with the best.” A Katy resident for 20 years, he admits that moving to Katy years ago was a blessing. “I have had the privilege of raising my three daughters in a community where friends truly feel like family and traditions are cornerstones of our culture.” Dr. Panos agrees; the people of Katy and the surrounding areas have welcomed him with open arms. Originally from Greece, Dr. Panos, who cares for the patients at the Katy Kingsland location, and his wife, Jessica are excited to be a part of this growing community. He learns something new about becoming a Texan every day. 

Smile Doctors Braces by Forrest Orthodontics offers an unmatched level of service for patients of all ages interested in a healthy and beautiful smile. The initial comprehensive consultation is complimentary and in most cases, treatment can begin the same day.
