Dr. Fabia Younus, DDS, MS

“Your smile is your best accessory!” Dr. Younus believes that notion so firmly that she spent 8 years in training, after dental school, to be able to treat her patients in the best possible ways. She grew up amongst a family of dentists, which strengthened her passion for the field. Dr. Younus is a dual specialist in Periodontics and Orthodontics, an achievement by only a handful of dentists.

After completing her general dentistry residency at the University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston(trained under exceptional dentists, including Dr. Vaughan himself), she pursued a Masters in Periodontics at Saint Louis University and a Masters in Orthodontics at the prestigious Columbia University in New York. She spent a great deal of her time treating complex cases that required a multi-disciplinary approach, along with leading some ground-breaking, multi-specialty research with internationally renowned periodontic, orthodontic, prosthodontic and endodontic professors at all institutions.

Dr. Younus, along with her husband, moved back to Houston to be able to raise their one-year-old son surrounded by the southern hospitality of Houstonians. Her husband is a physician-scientist and, as a family, they are always yearning to explore, learn and apply the newest innovations in their respective professions. When not in the office, you would find Dr. Younus surrounded by colleagues and friends, either learning the latest advances in dentistry or coordinating treatment of her patients.

Dr. Younus has gone one step further to validate her knowledge and proficiency of Periodontics and Implantology. She is a diplomate of the American Board of Periodontics, an accolade only achieved by about 30 percent of periodontists. She is also actively involved in a number of professional and charity organizations. She is a soccer fan and foodie (by marriage) and is currently working on truly converting herself into a Texans fan.
