Meet Dr. Alice Lam, DDS

Dr. Alice Lam graduated from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio School of Dentistry and has been practicing for nearly 25 years. She owns a relationship‐based practice that offers a whole-health approach to dental care in the West Houston area. Through her love for creating beautiful smiles, she stumbled upon the craniofacial pain world and found her purpose. She saw that so many people who lost their beautiful smile also came with a background of dental destruction, pain, and loss of vital health. From the love of her patients and her own personal journey with TMD and chronic pain, Dr. Lam relentlessly sought outside her discipline to find total body solutions. Today, she brings to her practice, a team of practitioners -- prominent master of Postural Restoration Physical Therapy, Mike Cantrell, MPT, PRC, movement specialist, James Guzman, CSCS, PRC, and a team of myofunctional therapists and nutritionists -- to provide a total body approach to restoring the body's symmetry, balance and help patients to gain optimal movement and function without pain.

In addition to maintaining her private practice, Dr. Lam is also an educator. She has been selected as Visiting Faculty and has served on the Board of Advisors at the world‐renown Pankey Institute in Key Biscayne, Florida, where dentists go for advanced dental training. She has also been an Adjunctive Professor at Boston University School of Dentistry and presented for many dental groups and study clubs around the country.

Dr. Lam maintains professional membership with the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Academy of Oral Systemic Health, American Academy of Physiological Medicine and Dentistry, The Synergy Academy for Craniofacial Development, Advanced Integration Academy, American Academy of Orofacial Pain, and the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine. She is proud to be an ardent supporter of the Houston community through the Houston Chapter of the March of Dimes, Abandoned Little Angels, Operation Smile, and H4OPE (Help 4 the Oppressed, Poor, and Encumbered). In her leisure time, Dr. Lam enjoys cooking, reading, swimming, traveling and outdoor activities with her twins, Bella and Xander.

Mike Cantrell, MPT, PRC
Postural Therapist

Mike graduated from the University of Georgia in 1981 with a Bachelor’s degree in Dietetics. After a period in the U.S. Army, he completed his Master’s degree in Physical Therapy from Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta in 1989. Mike was a member of the 2006 Postural Restoration class® thus earning the designation of Postural Restoration Certified (PRC). He has published numerous papers regarding Postural Restoration in an effort to help others more easily understand difficult concepts and has been a featured speaker at PRC national conferences for many years. As a professional movement and performance consultant with over 20 years experience working with a variety of patients and athletes in all manner of settings across the country and around the globe, Mike is also a partner and lead performance consultant with Applied Integration Consulting. His passion and work as a therapist and an educator has impacted patients and athletes across the US and throughout Europe, Australia and Asia.

Mike’s area of expertise centers on helping individuals with chronic pain and enhancing sport performance through integration of neuro-respiratory dynamics. Of particular interest is the emergence of his skill with orofacial management of PRI-based principles. This has led to specific programs coupling respiratory function with dental management of the cervical spine and ribcage. In 2019, Mike joined efforts with Dr. Alice Lam in Houston, Texas, and created The Align Center for Integrative Dental Postural Restoration®, where he assembled a collaborative team for a whole-body interdisciplinary approach involving both dentistry and Postural Restoration Physical therapy to manage the human form for pain reduction as well as optimal movement and functional performance.
