When Dr. Srishti Mehta, owner of local Indigo Orthodontics, relocated to Fort Bend County, she had no idea how much she would love this community. Dr. Mehta says, “We moved here when my husband, Dr. Shubham Pant, accepted a clinical research opportunity at MD Anderson Cancer Center. I love the weather and the diversity. The people here are warm and welcoming, true southern hospitality.”
In her 16 years of experience, Dr. Mehta has helped more than 20,000 patients with their smiles. Indigo Orthodontics is a Living Magazine “Best Orthodontist in Fort Bend County” award winner. “My aim is to give every patient a unique experience,” explains Dr. Mehta. “I design a smile for the individual. I have fun braces options for kids and unique aesthetic solutions for adults, including Invisalign and InBrace (braces that go on the inside of the teeth).” Indigo Orthodontics is a Diamond Top 1% in the nation Invisalign provider. While many offices offer Invisalign and you can even find aligners online, Dr. Mehta recommends only trusting your smile with an expert in orthodontics and aligner treatment. “It’s much like giving a crayon to a 4-year-old and a 20-year-old. While the child can use the crayon, the adult comes up with much better results.”
Dr. Mehta recommends that all children have their first orthodontic checkup by age seven. “Waiting for all permanent teeth to come in is a common myth. There are some skeletal and growth issues that we can treat more efficiently and better when we catch them early. This is also an opportunity to evaluate a child’s airway and any breathing issues. We evaluate the airway, snoring, mouth breathing, and any sleep disordered breathing issues. Our 3D imaging uses minimal radiation to deliver vast amounts of information about a child’s teeth, jaws, and airway. We focus on identifying airway issues and collaborating with pediatric dentists, ENTs, and oral surgeons to promote better airway health. This results in better focus for the child to learn and grow.”
Indigo Orthodontics is an all-digital practice (no impressions). It is in network with several insurances. “I believe a beautiful smile should be an affordable luxury. We transfer the insurance savings to our patients. Our financing options put orthodontic care in everyone’s reach.”
Dr. Mehta is a Fort Bend Education Foundation board member. Her children, Anya and Shreya, attend FBISD schools. “I believe in our school district. They do amazing things for our kids!” She also gives back as much as she can by sponsoring schools, swim teams, dance teams and more. In her spare time, Dr. Mehta enjoys cooking, trying new things, and spending time with her girls.
Since its inception in 2017, Indigo Orthodontics has grown from a team of three to 15. “Thank you for trusting us with your smile, your most valuable asset,” says Dr. Mehta. “I’m very blessed to live and practice in this community!”
