Best Dentist
In Texas

Here is a list of the best dentists in Texas, based on patient reviews, awards, and professional recognition: This list is not based on advertising or payment. Dentists cannot 'buy' their way onto my list.

These are dentists that I have become familiar with over the last 40 years, either by personal interaction, online, at Continuing Education courses, or by reputation.

They all have exceptional skills, and are experts in one or more fields. I would trust these dentists to work in my mouth without hesitation!

This list is not comprehensive, and I will be adding to it regularly.

With decades of tried-and-true experience in dentistry – not to mention a never-ending passion for the work – Tom keeps our patients smiling brightly with his energetic and animated personality. You'll likely hear him laughing or the sound of his fingers snapping from down the hall. His humble beginnings in dentistry came from a family connection; his oldest brother was a dentist while Tom was in grade school. Later during college, Tom would leave Chicago behind and spend the summers in Grand Prairie learning from his big brother what it meant to be a dentist. He got the opportunity to meet so many cool and wonderful people day in and day out – and the rest, as they say, is history.

Following his formal education, he served in the U.S. Navy Dental Corps for five years. As for clinical expertise, his path follows a winding road with lots of advanced training and accolades along the way. He is a voracious reader and a conscientious student of his profession, having extensively studied countless advanced services like laser therapy, Six Month Smiles, Snap On Smile, dental implants, and more.
