Dr. Tanya Saour has practiced Dentistry and Orthodontics since 2009, when she completed her Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Detroit Mercy, in Michigan. She pursued postgraduate education and received both a master’s degree, and certificate in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics from the University of Detroit Mercy in 2011.
Dr. Saour was introduced to the benefits of orthodontic treatment from a young age, when she was exposed to cleft lip and palate registries and the need for access to healthcare for children through the UNICEF foundation.
In addition to the reward of helping her community through the practice of orthodontics, it is also a combination of her greatest passions: art and science. Dr Saour practices orthodontics with care and compassion. She enjoys working together with patients to create beautiful and healthy smiles, with quality treatment in a fun and open atmosphere, and she has the privilege to develop friendships with her patients and their families.
Orthodontics is a constantly evolving field in which Dr. Saour is excited to stay up to date. As an active member of the American Association of Orthodontists, Southwestern Association of Orthodontists, and International Association of Dentists, she stays on the cutting edge of research and information to provide better diagnosis and treatment options to her patients.
Dr. Saour values the education she can provide to her patients and community, and loves to pass on her knowledge of the profession through mentorship, as well as in her role as a clinical assistant professor at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center, School of Dentistry, in Houston.
She is a member of several distinguished honor societies: Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society, Alpha Sigma Nu Jesuit Honor Society, and the Golden Key International Honour Society. She has received several awards and distinctions, including the American Association of Orthodontists Award for exceptional interest in Orthodontics in 2009, and more recently, was included in the Leading Physicians of the World in 2017.
Dr Saour was born in Houston and grew up across several countries around the world: from down under in Australia, to far north in Canada. It’s no wonder that she has a love for travel and exploring new cultures and cuisines. She enjoys staying active, especially with tennis and swimming, and finds relaxation with oil painting, and watching movies like “The Sound of Music.”
