We are excited to offer a competitive approach to the growing trend of Corporate Dental offices where your dentist is an employee, where there is always a new dentist to replace the one who just left, and non-dentists are making business decisions. The Texas Dental Center difference is our Mission Statement: to provide Great care, quality work, and an enjoyable dental experience. Dr. Damon has instilled in our staff the concept of Patient First, Office Second. The number one quality we look for in our staff hires is that they care! We invite you to come try a caring experience, with acceptance of PPO dental insurance, and fair pricing with honest treatment plans.
