Dr. Catharine Borders knows that a smile from a loved one, friend or complete stranger can brighten someone’s day. She chose to become an orthodontist to create beautiful smiles for her patients that will give them the confidence and self-esteem to smile and brighten the day of those around them. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry with a concentration in biochemistry from the University of Louisville. She graduated valedictorian from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry, where she received her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree. After dental school, she attended residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston School of Dentistry, receiving her certificate in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics and Master of Science in dentistry. Dr. Borders served as chief resident during her residency and currently serves as a part-time professor of orthodontics at UT-Houston dental school. Dr. Borders is a board-certified orthodontist.

Dr. Borders is involved in many professional orthodontic and dental organizations.

Dr. Borders is also a proud Delta Zeta alumna from the Beta Gamma Chapter at the University of Louisville.

As a native Kentuckian, Dr. Borders has a passion for thoroughbred horse racing, especially the Kentucky Derby. Talk to her about her favorite day of the year, the first Saturday in May, and she can give you tips on Derby hats or her picks of the ponies. She and her husband, Brandon, are diehard University of Kentucky basketball fans and will likely be wearing blue from November to April to cheer on the Wildcats!

Dr. Borders is also active in her church and community. Come rodeo season, look for Dr. Borders wearing her cowboy boots and hat while volunteering for the Parade Committee at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. She and her husband are members of Second Baptist Church.

Dr. Borders and Brandon welcomed their first daughter, Rhyan Elizabeth, on May 24, 2019. She is the love of their lives and keeps them really busy as she grows.

Dr. Borders and her family are so happy to call Texas their home and are excited to be involved in the Richmond community. As the saying goes: “I wasn’t born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could.”
