At General Dentistry Centers, we take pride in the difference we make in people’s lives. Each member of our dedicated staff is committed to making clients feel at ease while helping them restore, maintain and perfect their teeth. With GDC’s impeccable reputation, there is one man that has been at the forefront of our success and made a major impact to our development and growth. His name is Dr. Robert Kent, who retired in 2016 after a rewarding career spanning over four decades.
The Start of a Successful Career
Growing up in Garland, Texas, Dr. Kent always knew he wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. He earned his D.D.S. degree at the University of Texas Health Science Center in 1974. He was able to build his dental skills while serving in the United States Air Force. Outside of dentistry, he also picked up wildlife photography and fishing, but his love for making people smile was always a strong passion. He expanded his dentistry profession and became a part of several prestigious organizations:
- American Dental Association
- Texas Dental Association
- American Academy of Group Dental Practice
- Dentists Who Care
- Kiwanis International
- Edinburg Chamber of Commerce
Helping Those Around
Dr. Kent’s philosophy, “Giving the best care to patients through proper education and treatment planning”, is what made his career so successful. Throughout his time at GDC, he meticulously ensured that each client was cared for and treated properly. His caring and approachable nature impacted not only his clients, but those he worked with as well.
We want to take the time to congratulate this marvelous man for surpassing 41 years of dedication to his patients and hard work in perfecting their smiles. Although we are sad to see him go, we know that Dr. Kent will continue his passion of wildlife photography and fishing just as our GDC office will continue to strive for dental excellence.
As we say goodbye to one of our own, we welcome a new beginning at GDC with a newly-improved website. With a user-friendly interface, clients are able to navigate efficiently through the website, making our professional services easily accessible. Now you can have GDC at your fingertips with our mobile compatibility! This website mirrors the dedication and love we consistently put into our profession.
