Life and Philosophy

Originally from Vancouver, WA, Dr. Hooty Alayan, DDS, has been in private practice at Great Oaks Dentistry in Round Rock, Texas since 2004.

He believes in providing excellent care to his patients and making them feel like part of the family.

He also understands the universal desire for a beautiful smile, and has focused his post-doctorate training, in part, on cosmetic dentistry. Beyond that, he has sought to better his education and his understanding of neuromuscular dentistry, to ensure that his patients receive the best care for TMD/TMJ.
