What You Might Not Know About Dr. G.

Dr. Jorge Gutierrez, known in the office as Dr. G., has practiced orthodontics in the Houston and Katy area since 1986. A graduate of the UT Health School of Dentistry, he has years of experience in both Invisalign Orthodontics as well as traditional braces for both children and adults. While he is passionate about his work, he focuses on a different passion outside of the office: triathlons.

Dr. G. has been a nationally ranked triathlete for the past 10 years and has been racing for about 15. In that time, he primarily focused on sprint distance events and has claimed both first, second, and third place titles multiple times in his age group. These accomplishments have taken him to the state championship several times, and he has qualified for the national sprint championship 10 times.

In 2017, Dr. G. shifted his focus from sprint distance to “long course” triathlon races. More specifically, he set his sights on completing his first Ironman in the Cozumel Ironman race. An Ironman consists of a 2.4 mile ocean swim, a 112 mile bike ride, and a full 26.2 mile marathon. However, his training was stunted when he and his training partners were hit by a car during a bike training session. The accident occurred 90 days before race day, and Dr. G. had to forfeit the Cozumel Ironman race. After two separate surgeries and many physical recovery challenges, Dr. G. decided he wanted to try again.

On March 5th, 2019, 18 months after the accident, Dr. G. registered for the Ironman Florida in Panama City Beach, Florida. He continued his training and kept his sights on his goal. On November 3rd, 2019, Dr. G.’s dream of being an Ironman came true. Not only did he finish, but he placed 5th in his age group with a time of 11 hours, 54 minutes and nearly qualified for the World Championship Ironman in Kona, Hawaii.

Dr. G. attributes his success to the overwhelming support of his wife and children. Of the experience, he remarked, “I could have never made that comeback after the accident without the love and support of my wife and without my faith in the Lord and His plans for my life.”

Retainers are for L I F E , as long as you want to keep your teeth straight and your bite sitting properly.

Retainer wear is crucial to the longevity of your orthodontic treatment results!

🔹 wear retainers everyday
🔹 wear them full time or night time only (depending what Dr. G informs you)
🔹 wear retainers on vacation
🔹 wear retainers after you get married
🔹 wear retainers at your friends house

& IF they break, get lose, or eaten by the dog - call us right away! We are more than happy to get you a new retainer made so that you don’t have to go through orthodontic treatment again.

Wondering what to expect at your first orthodontic appointment? Here it is!

You'll be introduced by our team at the front desk. The ladies will get you checked in and make sure your paperwork is complete.

Then Carmen (pictured left) will come introduce herself and get you (or your child) to take initial records.

After that, Amy or Nessa (pictured middle and right) will introduce themselves and bring you into one of our Treatment Coordinating offices.

Here, the doctor will provide an assessment of your teeth and bite and talk to you and the treatment coordinator about the treatment plan.

You'll have a chance to ask questions during this time!

Our treatment coordinator will wrap up your appointment by presenting estimated treatment fees and answering any final questions.

If you'd like, we can go ahead and get you scheduled then before you leave!

Have any additional questions? We're always here to help! (281) 392-0888.
