Justin Lai, DDS
As a native Houstonian, Justin Lai, DDS is excited to serve his hometown, the Memorial Area and Energy Corridor. Dr. Lai attended J Frank Dobie High School and studied Chemical Engineering at Rice University before receiving his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio Dental School.

Dr. Lai is a strong advocate of continuing education to stay ahead of the curve and has taken over double the minimum number of required hours. Dr. Lai is also a proud member of the ADA, TDA, GHDS, and IALD. Dr. Lai is an Eagle Scout and gives back to the community whenever he can. When he isn’t in the office, Dr. Lai spends his time outdoors where he enjoys playing golf and tennis.
