Dr. Shao's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Shao "There is nothing like the feeling of changing someone’s life through braces and various orthodontic techniques. The smiles I can create for my patients have such a significant impact on their lives and are truly rewarding to see. As an orthodontist, I feel very blessed and privileged to be part of that positive change. Orthodontics is not only a science, it’s also an art. I love witnessing how each person comes in with varying degrees of malocclusion, yet each has the same goal: a healthy, beautiful smile. It’s my responsibility to use my skills and knowledge to make that happen, and develop a treatment path that’s right for them. What’s best of all, at least for me, is that I use my knowledge to create smiles for people I care about. My patients are fascinating individuals, and I love getting to know them on a personal level, building relationships as their treatment progresses. I enjoy hearing their stories and learning about their interests and families. It is an honor to provide care for such wonderful people and to help them attain great oral health and a beautiful smile while we become friends. Education and Continuing Education My Doctorate of Dental Surgery and Master of Science degrees were both awarded at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. The education I received in these programs was top-notch. The last dental ranking of US News & World Report ranked UTHSCSA as #1 dental school in the nation. Oral healthcare, and especially orthodontics, is an ever-changing field, with new technologies, materials, and treatment methodologies constantly being developed. It’s essential that I stay on the leading edge of knowledge in order to provide my patients with the best care available, so I attend multiple meetings, conferences, and lectures throughout the year, including those offered by the American Association of Orthodontists and the American Dental Association. I am also a Board-Certified orthodontist by the American Board of Orthodontics. Personal Life I was born and raised in Texas, and now call The Woodlands my home. I love going to the movies, traveling the globe when I have the chance, and being an avid foodie. I am also quite adventurous; I enjoy ziplining, swimming in a shark cage, and snorkeling with sea turtles when I’m on vacation. At home, I’m active in our community. I volunteer with programs that offer free and low-cost dental care to underserved communities. I’ve also been part of the Habitat for Humanity program since 2007.
