With different methods of treatment, we are constantly challenging each other to stay up to date on modern orthodontic practices and innovative ways of treatment. This is why you can rest assured you are in perfect hands here!

Dr. Lisa Stokes - Orthodontists in Sherman & Bonham TX

Meet Dr. Lisa Stokes

I was born with a cleft lip and palate and absolutely hated the way I looked, as well as how my teeth looked. However, when my teeth were fixed, it made everything I had been through worth it. I want to use my gifts and talents to help others who may not like their smile. I want to change lives and love and care for others well.

I started my own orthodontic journey with Dr. Bill Robinson, who actually owned this practice before Dr. Lisa Stokes and then she finished my orthodontic treatment. It’s really amazing to be able to come full circle and join the same practice and have that opportunity to serve the community that helped me become the person I am.
