Hello, my name is Dr. Darren Dickson, and from the time I was in high school, I knew I wanted to be a dentist.
What I enjoy most about dentistry is the ability to help people. One of the most gratifying things about being a dentist is when you see someone that is either in pain, or is simply not happy with some aesthetic aspect of themselves, and to have that special ability to be able to fix their pain, or change their overall perception of themselves for the better is an extremely powerful thing.
For me, being able to change someone’s self concept and give them a better outlook on life is, hands down, the most gratifying part of having built My Dentist in Plano.
I’m very proud to say, that I was born and raised right here in Plano, graduating from Plano Sr. High in 1987. I then went on to Texas A&M University (GO AGGIES!), then proceeded to Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas where I completed my DDS in 1998.
I’ve been practicing individualized dentistry in Plano for over 15 years. I’ve studied Dental Implantology at the University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio, and was a faculty member with the Center for Aesthetic and Restorative Dentistry for five years.
I’m members of numerous groups including:
- North Texas Dental Society
- American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
- Academy of General Dentistry
- Academy of Minimally Invasive Biomimetic Dentistry
Some of my greatest career accomplishments are serving as a state delegate for the Texas Dental Association. Co-chairing the “Give Kids a Smile” program that launched in 2003, where more than five million underserved children, to date, have been able to received free oral health services.
I also become a Fellow with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. And received recognition of my excellent work with patients, by being elected as one of “America’s Top Dentists” by the Consumer’s Research Council, and being voted Plano’s “Best Aesthetic Dentist” by Star Community Newspaper’s Reader Choice Awards.
With the help of my experienced team at My Dentist in Plano, I’m committed to giving my patients individualized care that’s tailored to each person’s needs.
I feel that by approaching dentistry with this individualized approach, our ability to communicate individual life-changing possibilities transform dentistry into something that is designed specifically for you!
I invite you to join our My Dentist in Plano family, by scheduling your next dental appointment with us today!
At My Dentist in Plano, you’ll find a dedicated team that can provide you with the individualized dentistry you deserve.
