Meet Dr. Robert S. Muirhead
Orthodontics allows me to contribute to people’s well-being, by improving their appearance, self-esteem, and oral health. I appreciate the uniqueness of each patient’s situation and the challenges that presents as I design the treatment approach that’s right for the person.
I have chosen to remain a solo orthodontic practice, and dedicated to providing the most advanced treatment in a caring and comfortable setting. I personally see and direct every patient’s treatment and keep them and their parents informed of the progress we’re making.
My goal, and that of my team, is to provide the best orthodontic experience and deliver the best smile possible to each patient.
I was raised in Temple and earned my Bachelor of Arts at Texas Tech University. I moved to Houston to attend dental school at the University of Texas Health Science Center. There I completed my Doctorate of Dental Surgery and my Master of Science in orthodontics.
I have specialized in orthodontics since 1980. After completing my master’s, I’ve sought continuing education opportunities, and complete many courses each year. This keeps me up to date on new advances and treatment options, so my patients receive the most modern orthodontic care available.
I maintain active memberships in several prestigious oral healthcare organizations. This gives me access to the latest research, as well as the opportunity to learn from leaders in the discipline. I am a member of the:
- American Board of Orthodontics, Diplomate
- American Association of Orthodontists
- American Dental Association
- Texas Dental Association
- Greater Houston Dental Society
I have been honored for inclusion on the Super Dentist list as published in Texas Monthly magazine since its inception. In addition, I have been selected as one of Houston’s Top Dentists in H Texas magazine.
My wonderful wife and I married in 1988. We reside in Magnolia with five dogs and two cats, and have a daughter who currently lives in San Antonio. My wife and I enjoy traveling, hunting, bowling, gardening, and NASCAR.

We are lifetime members and lifetime committeemen of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. We are also members of the Silver Spurs as a result of our contributions that benefit the education of our youth.
I am also a contributor to and supporter of many school programs and various other charities and events. I believe our youth are our future and, because of all I have been blessed to receive and accomplish, I am uniquely situated to influence lives and improve the quality of life for many people.
