Dr. Amin Movahhedian

I love the way orthodontics combines physics and dentistry to create a unique science that is dynamic and flexible in nature. It makes it a specialty that is perfectly suited to me. The connections that I make with my patients while we work toward beautiful smiles are rewarding. I meet so many fascinating individuals and learn from each of them. They tell me about their lives, their experiences, and their dreams; and in doing so they allow me to become a part of their lives. I am honored by their friendships and that they feel comfortable enough to call me Dr. Amin.



Being an Ivy League graduate, I learned to master my knowledge through teaching. I regularly provide continuing education courses for my colleagues in dental fields. I educate them in orthodontic diagnosis & treatment planning, smile analysis, multidisciplinary approach to cosmetic dentistry, principles of occlusion, TMJ and skeletal discrepancies.

Personal Life

I was born in Vicksburg, MS. I live in Houston now and love being here. I enjoy being active, especially biking. In fact, I have biked almost all of the major trails in the Houston metro area. I am also a healthy eater and have developed many great-tasting recipes. My favorite books are Made to Stick by Chip & Dan Heath, Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely, and Influence by Robert Cialdini. I like Christian Bale and Charlize Theron's movies. My all-time favorite movies are Usual Suspects, Dark Knight, Green Mile and Dumb and Dumber.
