"Discover the Pankey Difference"

Our History

Cosmetic, Restorative, Implant, & Sedation Dentistry


I have lived and practiced Dentistry in Temple Texas since April 1971. I own and practice Dentistry in the Birdcreek Dental Center. I don't really want to bore you with a resume and a long list of accomplishments although I could if I wanted to. I graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in 1968. I practice General Dentistry and although I do all types of dentistry I practice with an emphasis on reconstructive dentistry (crowns and bridges) and TMJ. I am proud to have been a part of the first group of Dentists to complete the continuum at the prestigious Pankey Institute for Advanced Dental Education in 1973. I have also achieved F.A.G.D. (Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry) recognition from the academy of General Dentistry. I have always stressed Excellence and High Quality, not only in my profession but in all aspects of everything that I do.


I believe that the best way to provide quality and excellence is through Fee For Service Dentistry. For this reason I do not participate in Dental Maintenance Organizations because I feel that they prevent me from providing the best quality dentistry for my patients. We do accept all other forms of Dental Insurance. If personal high quality care is what you, need we invite you to join with us on a journey to achieve optimum oral health.
