The Space City Orthodontics tagline
is “We Make Houston Smile,” and Dr. Vijay Bhagia is known to his patients and
throughout the city as the “Smile Doctor”— not without reason. Since 2001,
Dr. Bhagia, a board certified orthodontist, has crafted more than 15,000
smiles in the greater Houston area. Now that number will include many more in
Cypress, where Space City Orthodontics has opened its new office at Lakeland
Village Center.

“We have developed a modern office in a fun,
welcoming environment in the heart of Bridgeland,” said Dr. Bhagia, “and we have
a team that cares deeply about the community. Volunteering at the schools and
other community events is at the core of best practices for our entire

Space City Orthodontics

With thousands of happy patients who have
been treated like family and more than 22 years of experience, Dr. Bhagia’s
proficiency and expertise is unmatched in the area. From the first visit,
your needs and concerns are valued, and a treatment plan is tailored to
develop your unique smile.

“I really enjoy getting to know patients
individually,” said Dr. Bhagia, “to understand their humanity as well as
their insecurities, so I can give them a smile that will restore their
confidence. My job as an orthodontist is not only aesthetic; it is to help
preserve teeth. Straight teeth are much easier to clean and maintain. My goal
is to get your teeth in the best spot for functionality so you can keep them
all your life. There is nothing better than eating with your own teeth even
in your old age.”

Dr. Bhagia’s patients receive all this
excellence at an affordable price. The office is in-network with PPO
insurances, and they offer zero interest in-house financing. As well, fees
are all inclusive, which means there is no extra charge if you encounter
broken brackets or retainers.

Space City Orthodontics is a big proponent of
dental technology. When it’s time for X-rays, patients enjoy the precision of
the 3D cone beam CT, where patients and parents can see what’s happening to
their teeth on a big screen and get the assurance of a highly precise

“We also use 3D scanners to gain digital
models of our patients’ teeth,” explained Dr. Bhagia. “This way we don’t have
to deal with those outdated, uncomfortable, and gooey dental impressions

Each braces patient at Space City Orthodontics
is initially diagnosed with digital custom braces. First, your teeth are
scanned, so that your individual smile can be perfectly designed. Using AI,
Dr. Bhagia will place the braces virtually, allowing him to treat your teeth
in the quickest and most convenient way with the most predictable outcomes
and fewest visits.

Smile improvement is regulated with the use
of weekly virtual monitoring, called Dental monitoring, an app that utilizes
AI to identify how things are progressing. Via the app, patient and doctor
receive weekly updates and can communicate with each other. Patients can book
or modify appointments via the app — a convenience that saves everyone time
and energy.

Dr. Bhagia is in the top 1% of Invisalign
providers worldwide, and Space City Orthodontics patients have the option of
Invisalign over traditional braces at no additional charge.

“I have been using Invisalign in my practice
for 22 years,” said Dr. Bhagia, “and I’ve treated over 6,000 Invisalign cases
to date, so I’m experienced in treating all complexities. I am an Invisalign
Diamond Plus provider, the highest rank achievable. For the past seven years,
I’ve been privileged to be a part of the Invisalign Global Faculty where I’ve
taught Invisalign treatment to other doctors and dental students from
everywhere in the world.”

Dr. Bhagia additionally served as director of
the board for the Texas Association of Orthodontists (TAO).

Patients at Space City Orthodontics have the
option of availing their Lifetime Retainer Assurance program as protection
for the investment in their smile.

Aside from being an expert orthodontist, Dr.
Bhagia is a family man. His greatest joy is being a husband, father, son, and
brother. He can often be found cheering his son playing tennis or hitting
golf balls with his daughter. And he wants you to get to know him as the
Smile Doctor and a family friend.

“We have thousands of satisfied patients as
well as parents that can attest to the care and professionalism of our
staff,” said Dr. Bhagia. “So much so that a very significant percentage of
our referrals come from past patients. We are very fortunate to have received
that kind of love, and we look forward to earning the same kind of affection
from the Cypress community.”
