DFW Dental Team
DFW Dental Team is a dental practice based 100% on referrals from other pediatric and family dentists. We welcome children and special-needs patients of all ages who are not able to safely receive their dental treatment in a traditional dental office setting. We aim to deliver the highest quality care at the lowest cost, and strengthen the existing relationships between patients and their critically important primary care providers. We work with an exceptional group of healthcare professionals, and welcome each patient with the same care and attention we desire for our own family members.
