Meet the Team

Dental House started out as an idea that dental care doesn't always need to be delivered in an environment that is impersonal and frightening for the patient. Dental House wanted to provide an environment for patients that was both welcoming and personable. The State Thomas historic district in the heart of Uptown Dallas seemed the perfect location. Occupying a Victorian style home not only allowed us to offer convenience for our patients but also a unique welcoming environment. Your new neighborhood dental office was built to create a small town dental experience in the heart of one of the greatest cities in the world. It is a home where you can receive a lifetime of dental care.
