Orthodontist in Houston, Tomball, & Spring

Meet Dr. Jim Watson

“The biggest joy in our practice is developing a relationship with entire families, getting to know them, and becoming their family orthodontist.” — Dr. Watson



Dr. Watson’s philosophy is making sure each and every one of his patients is satisfied with their care. To that end, he believes visiting the orthodontist should be a fun and engaging experience that educates patients at the same time.

“Why shouldn’t it be fun to visit the orthodontist?” Dr. Watson says. “Our patients are the backbone of our practice. We do everything we can to make each visit enjoyable, no matter the patient’s age.”

Indeed, Dr. Watson’s excellent chairside manner often results in the parents of children he treats becoming patients themselves. And most new patients find their way to his office by word-of-mouth.

Education & Experience

Dr. Watson began his journey to becoming an orthodontist during his years at Brigham Young University, earning a Bachelor of Science degree. He went on to attend the prestigious Marquette University, obtaining a Doctorate in Dental Surgery (DDS) after years of hard work.

In order to improve his skills as an orthodontist, Dr. Watson spent one year in a hospital residency at The Queen’s Medical Center in Hawaii.

In addition, Dr. Watson became a selectee for a highly competitive post-doctoral orthodontic specialty training program at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine in Philadelphia.

Furthermore, Dr. Watson has a license to practice in four states, including Texas, California, Illinois, and Wisconsin.

Memberships & Affiliations

Dr. Watson’s already impressive resume also includes membership in many dentistry and orthodontic organizations.

The American Association of Orthodontics, American Dental Association, Greater Houston Dental Society, Texas Dental Association, Southwestern Society of Orthodontists, and World Association of Orthodontics all count Dr. Watson as one of their own.

Outside of the Office,
In the Community

Dr. Watson takes pride in balancing his work with family and community needs. As the father of three children, Dr. Watson dedicates himself to spending as much time with his family as possible and making the world a better place for them and others.

That’s why Dr. Watson, who is also fluent in Spanish, spent time in Puerto Rico as a missionary for two years. Dr. Watson also serves as Cub Scout Master for Boy Scout Troop #332 and volunteers as a disc jockey at area schools and swim team events.

Dr. Watson enjoys working with and helping children so they can follow their dreams.

Your Orthodontic Celebrity

Dr. Watson treated professional NBA player Justin Jackson, who currently plays with the Sacramento Kings organization. Furthermore, Dr. Watson was instrumental in providing Miss Magnolia contestant Kylie Harsch with a winning smile.

Dr. Watson is also something of a celebrity himself, having made appearances on Discovery Channel, TLC, Nick, HGTV, and ABC Family. But you don’t have to be a celebrity to receive top-notch treatment from Dr. Watson.

Not only does he treat the occasional famous face, but he also treats his ordinary patients as if they are stars, too!
