Natalie Willis, D.D.S., M.S.D.

Dr. Willis was raised in West Houston and is a graduate of nearby Stratford High School. Her father, Dr. Ron Gallerano, practiced orthodontics in our area for many years. He has been and continues to be a special mentor in her life and orthodontic education. Like Dr. Domann and Dr. Orfanos, Dr. Willis completed her dental and orthodontic training at the University of Texas School of Dentistry in the Texas Medical Center. Most recently, she completed the rigorous process of becoming certified by the American Board of Orthodontics, a standing only achieved by one in three orthodontists. Despite her Longhorn roots, she has been married to Texas A&M’s proudest graduate and biggest fan for almost 9 years. When she's not straightening teeth, she and her husband, Albert, love to travel, try new restaurants, and explore Houston with their daughter and their Rough Collie. While Dr. Willis especially loves the unique challenge of orthodontic treatment planning and the detail-oriented work of creating beautiful smiles, her favorite part of practicing orthodontics is getting to invest in the lives of her patients and their families. Dr. Natalie Gallerano Willis shares the same values that our office strives to embody and is excited to contribute to TACO's ongoing commitment to providing excellent orthodontic care in a warm and fun environment.
