Dr. Byron Tam
Hi there! My name is Dr. Tam and I am the Orthodontist here at Southern Nevada Orthodontics.
I grew up in San Francisco, CA with my two incredible parents and awesome little brother. When I was younger, I was fortunate enough that my parents would take me to the dentist regularly for my routine dental appointments. Even though I had my fair share of cavities, Dr. Douglas Lee made it the best experience. During every visit I became more and more inspired by my childhood dentist and decided at a young age that I wanted to become a dentist myself one day. Dr. Lee always made it fun to visit the dentist, so I wanted to be just like him and do the same for my patients. I stayed focused on my dream, and after years of commitment and support from my family, I was able to achieve my biggest dream. I completed my orthodontic residence here locally at Roseman College, and received my Nevada Board of Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics license.
