    Xavier Walker, DDS

    General Dentist

    I attended dental school at UTHealth San Antonio School of Dentistry. Here I was able to attend one of the top schools in the nation for my dental education. Not only did I receive top of the line clinical training, but I learned that communication and understanding is key to fostering trust with all patients. I believe this trust will allow me to reach my ultimate goal, which is teaching all patients that their oral health is the first link in the chain to total body health. When beginning treatment on a new patient, I like to work together WITH the patient to determine which treatment is best for them.

    I enjoy spending my free time with family and friends, as well as, being a bad golfer. I hope to finally spend time exploring what I think is a great city in San Antonio. I look forward to meeting you and your loved ones, as we start or continue your path to great health.
