Having a shopping center nearby that has many of the services you need on a daily, weekly or even monthly basis is super convenient. Coming soon to Lakeland Village Center will be the addition of two new businesses, Space City Orthodontics and Foxfire Candle Works that will add to that convenience.

The first will be Space City Orthodontics with a soft opening planned for this December. Located at 10519 Fry Road, the practice will occupy 2,550 square-feet of space just behind CVS. Estimated to open in February 2024 will be Foxfire Candle Works. The 1,200 square-foot boutique will be located at 10611 Fry Rd, across from Woof Gang Bakery.

“A thoughtfully curated mix of dining, shopping, and professional services are among the characteristics that set Bridgeland apart as one of today’s most sough-after communities,” said Marissa Moreau, Senior Manager, Leasing for Howard Hughes. “Space City Orthodontics and Foxfire Candle Works are our two latest additions to Lakeland Village Center, and both share our commitment to exceptional customer service, with Foxfire Candle Works introducing a new, interactive fragrance studio to our selection of popular community-building experiences. We are excited to welcome these new amenities to Lakeland Village Center.”

Dr. Vijay Bhagia and Dr. Lina Aljoudeh will serve patients at the Lakeland Village Center location – the third Space City Orthodontics in the Houston area. The practice will offer high-tech diagnostic offerings and treatment solutions for kids, teens, and adults. Not only do they adopt the best technology for each patient’s needs, the team, which also includes board registered and certified clinicians, is dedicated to providing each patient with the highest customer service. Treatment options include traditional metal and clear ceramic braces options, Invisalign® clear aligners, at-home aligners, plus free smile growth guidance for kids ages 5-10.

On their website, Dr. Bhagia says he works to serve his patients by building self-esteem and self-confidence through a beautiful smile, and Dr. Lina, the preferred nickname used by her patients, always has her patients’ best interests in mind and truly believes her dedication to straightening teeth can improve lives. The many reviews on their website confirm their mission while also affirming their attention to impeccable customer service.

If you’ve been considering treatment to improve your smile, this may be your opportunity, as during the months of December and January, Space City Orthodontics will offer new-patient discounts. To schedule your complementary consultation, please visit their website: or call (281) 286-8945.

If you are seeking a fun, local experience, then you’ll want to explore the offerings at Foxfire Candle Works. It’s an interactive candle-making studio equipped to host celebratory moments including bridal and baby showers, bachelorette and birthday parties, as well as team building events. They also feature kids’ day, craft day, something for the guys, girls’ night out, and even an experience with your dog! The Houston-based, family-owned candle boutique and fragrance bar showcases more than 100 fragrances. You’ll recognize some familiar scents like blackberry, gardenia and clove, but perhaps not uncommon scents such as clothes line, wasabi and whipped cream. Foxfire Candle Works offers a unique fragrance experience where you can create your own appealing scents and mix them into soy candles and diffusers, as well as an assortment of home and body products. The Lakeland Village Center location will be their second in the Houston area.

Lakeland Village Center is the first of four planned village centers in Bridgeland, and there is so much more to come. In the heart of the community is Bridgeland Central®, the emerging 925-acre urban hub positioned to transform Bridgeland and the Northwest Houston region as the premier commercial district. Village Green at Bridgeland Central®, the first of many phases is now under construction will include the Greater Houston area’s first mass timber office building and the community’s first H-E-B grocery store, which is expected to open by the end of 2024.
