Dr. Bob’s practice philosophy is simple. He believes in the golden rule: “Treat others as you would have them treat you”.  The dental advice he gives you will be the same advice he would give his own family member. Dr. Bob taught from coast to coast and internationally on innovative root canal techniques and has been practicing for over 30 years. Dr. Bob sees patients in Pasadena, Willowbrook, and now River Oaks!

Dr. B enjoys working on cosmetic cases, loves working with kids, and even feels she has a knack for it! She has a 2 year old son named Neil, so maybe that is where her knack comes from!

She earned her Bachelors in Biology with a minor in Business at UT Dallas then graduated from Texas A&M College of Dentistry in Dallas. Dr. Louie’s favorite thing about walking into the Pasadena office everyday is helping her patients regain confidence in their smiles by tapping into her artistic side to create something beautiful, functional, and comfortable. Outside of caring for her patients, Dr. Louie enjoys cooking with her husband, Terry, and playing with their goofy labradoodle, Walter. She also loves coffee shops, antiques, trying new restaurants, playing tennis, and traveling. So far, her two favorite adventures have been their honeymoon to Thailand and a mission trip to provide dental care to the sweet people of Jamaica. The Louie family’s biggest adventure, however, has been welcoming their first child, Tatiana Paige, into the world in January 2022. Congrats to the Louie family!
