Below, you can learn a little more about him ahead of your first appointment.
Why Did You Want to Become a Dentist?
Dr. Davis didn’t start out thinking dentistry would be his chosen profession. Growing up in Edmond, Oklahoma, he spent his youth singing, learning how to play various instruments, and performing in local orchestras and church groups. The double bass was his instrument of choice. He eventually took his love of music with him to college, where he earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Oklahoma and a master’s degree from the University of North Texas. After performing professionally in DFW for a few years with groups like the Fort Worth Symphony, he decided it was time for a change. He searched and found dentistry quite intriguing. After observing for many hours, he decided to become a dentist. He says it gives him a fulfilling creative outlet while allowing him to spend more time at home in the evening with his family.
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
Once he decided to become a dentist, Dr. Davis enrolled at the Texas A&M College of Dentistry. Since graduating, he has completed hundreds of hours of continuing education, primarily focusing on surgery, dental implants, and sedation dentistry. To date, he has attended prestigious institutions such as the Pikos Institute, Texas Implant Center, and the Spear Center. He is also certified to provide Invisalign and Six Month Smiles.
Outside of the Dental
Office, What Do You
Like to Do?
Dr. Davis says that the most important thing in his life is family, so most of his time away from work is dedicated to his wife Kristin (an orchestra director for Arlington ISD that he met while at OU), their young daughter, Aurelia, and their three dogs, Katara, Pike, and Peggy. Dr. Davis still performs and teaches as much as he can, but he also enjoys baking, golfing, and playing poker. He is an avid runner as well and even completed a marathon a few years ago.
