Dr. Heather Brown is a graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi. She received her Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree from Meharry Medical College and received her specialist certificate in Orthodontics at Howard University where she graduated as Valedictorian of her class.
Considered one of Houston’s leading orthodontists, Dr. Heather Brown has outstanding community achievements that have not gone unrecognized. She was recently featured by the Houstonia Magazine as one of 10 Houston Women “Making It Happen” and a Top Dentist of 2018. She is a past recipient of the 100 Black Men Phenomenal Woman of The Year Award and has been named one of the 25 Most Beautiful Houstonians by HTexas Magazine. Dr. Brown received the Houston Citizens Chamber of Commerce 2012 Pinnacle Award and has been lauded as one of The Top 30 Most Influential Women of Houston.
Her exceptional clinical skills have landed her in the top 1% of Invisalign Practitioners in the United States as an Invisalign Elite Provider.
Dr. Brown is not your typical orthodontist. Aside from all of her awards, she is a wife, a mother, a business owner, a multi-faceted woman with a heart for helping others. She states her crowning achievement was when she founded and established the Houston Chapter of the Smile For A Lifetime Foundation, a national non-profit charitable organization that provides free orthodontic services to disadvantaged children. To date the chapter has donated over $250,000 in services since it’s inception in 2012. After Hurricane Harvey devastated Houston in 2017, Dr. Brown and her staff worked tirelessly to launch a t-shirt and cap campaign to raise funds for families whose homes had been destroyed. And while Brown has done much to give back to the community, she has a strong passion to mentoring students. In an effort to help guide high school and college students in their career choices, Dr. Brown offers an annual summer internship program in her office. With no model to build on, Dr. Brown created, from scratch, a structured hands-on program where she mentors students interested in pursuing a career in dentistry.
