Meet the Doctors
We are board certified specialists in pediatric dentist and orthodontics. This experience ensures that your child receives the best quality care delivered in a positive and child-friendly environment. As parents ourselves, we love kids and understand what they need to feel comfortable in a dental office.
Dr. Julie Longoria attended Texas Tech University where she graduated Summa Cum Laude with a BS in Biology and a minor in Spanish. After college, Dr. Longoria studied dentistry at Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, Texas. She received her D.D.S. degree in 2008. Upon completion of her D.D.S., she continued her education at UTDB-Houston, specializing in Pediatrics. In 2010, Dr. Longoria completed a Master of Science in Dentistry, and Certificate in Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. Longoria is a diplomate in the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
Dr. Longoria is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, Houston Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, and Greater Houston Dental Society. She also volunteers at The University of Texas School of Dentistry, teaching in the pediatric dentistry department.
In her free time Dr. Longoria enjoys spending time with her husband, reading, traveling, trying new restaurants around town, and training for half-marathons (well let’s be honest she doesn’t love running, but she does love eating, therefore she must do something!)
Dr. Chen graduated valedictorian from the University of Texas School of Dentistry. After dental school, he furthered his education receiving his Certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics and Masters of Science in Dentistry. Dr. Chen served as the chief resident during his entire residency. He also was one of the youngest orthodontists to receive the highest certification in orthodontics from the American Board of Orthodontics. Dr. Chen is also clinical assistant professor in orthodontics at the University of Texas School of Dentistry.
Dr. Chen believes your smile is your calling card and is the most potent weapon one possesses. “A person’s smile has the strength to forge bonds, break ice, and calm storms. I want our patients to use their smile constantly. I believe the power of who you are is displayed when you smile.”
Throughout his career, Dr. Chen has become involved in many professional Orthodontic and Dental Organizations. He is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, the Southwest Society of Orthodontists, the Texas Orthodontic Association, the American Dental Association, the Texas Dental Association and the Greater Houston Dental Society.
In his free time, Dr. Chen enjoys playing golf, hunting, fishing, and spending time with his wife and family.
