Teague has new dentist
Welcome Dr. Gustavo Gonzalez...
Dr. Gustavo Gonzalez
Dr. Gustavo Gonzalez-Nieto is the new dentist in Teague. After 36 years of caring for the people of Teague, Dr. Michael Cook is retiring and Dr. Gonzalez is slowly assuming the care of Dr. Cook?s patients. Dr. Cook will remain involved in the practice and will be consulting with Dr. Gonzalez.
Dr. Gonzalez is originally from Panama but was raised in the Oklahoma City area. Following high school he attended the University of Oklahoma and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1996. He moved to the Dallas-Fort Worth area after graduation and worked as a mechanical engineer for several years. Dr. Gonzalez decided to continue his education and pursue dentist training at Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas.
?Mechanical Engineering is a good background for dentistry,? said Dr. Gonzalez. He graduated in 2008 with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.
?I worked for a while in a clinic and decided that I needed to manage my own practice,? said Dr. Gonzalez. ?So I purchased a practice in Arlington, Texas.? Dr. Gonzalez still owns and sees patients in Gonzalez Dentistry in Arlington. He said, ?I was looking to open another dentistry office and when I spoke to Dr. Cook I knew that this was the right practice for me. I love Teague so far and have met some very nice people.?
Dr. Gonzalez lives in North Richland Hills just around the corner from his two children, Alexis, 18, and Teagan, 9. Alexis is a recent graduate of Birdville High School and Teagan attends school in North Richland Hills. Dr. Gonzalez spends as much time as possible with his children.
He is a member of the Texas Army National Guard as a Dental Corps Officer. He does Dental Readiness screening exams and for his annual training he provides dental services for low-income population in the Rio Grande Valley area.
He is a member of the American Dental Association since 2003, the Texas Dental Association, Fort Worth Dental District Society, the Academy of General Dentistry member since 2004 and the Fort Worth AGD.
Dr. Gonzalez does all procedures that are provided in most dental offices. He offers Preventive Dentistry; Extractions (simple and surgical); Periodontics (cleanings and non-surgical periodontal therapy); Crowns, Implants, Bridges; Tooth-Colored Fillings; Root Canal Treatment; Cosmetic Dentistry (Veneers, Porcelain, Crowns, Bonding); Immediate Dentures; Partial Dentures; Bleaching; Night Guards.
Dr. Gonzalez enjoys all aspects of dentistry for adults and is great with children. With Dr. Cook?s impending retirement we are so fortunate to have a dentist with honesty and integrity to take over. Dr. Gonzalez is dedicated to giving the best care possible.
