Why Orthodontics?

Dr. Hime loves meeting and getting to know so many people from all over Austin. He loves seeing his patients many years after their treatment is complete.

He’s even gone to many weddings of former patients and heard how their new spouses were initially attracted to them because of their smiles!


Dr. Hime is a native of San Antonio. He graduated from Texas A&M University with an undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering before graduating from the UT Dental Branch in Houston in 1986.

He then went to the University of Louisville School of Dentistry in 1988, earning a Master of Science degree in Oral Biology and a certificate in Orthodontics.
