• About Us

  • At Gatesville Family Dental, we offer a range of dental services to help our patients achieve the smile they have always wanted. Whether you're missing a tooth, need a filling, want teeth whitening, or just need a regular cleaning; we have the tools and knowledge necessary to help you.

    Gatesville Family Dental has been in business for over 50 years and Dr. Betsy has been in practice for 10 years herself. Our office staff alone has over a century of combined experience in the field of dentistry. We work hard to provide a warm and welcoming environment for every patient. We find this adds an extra level of comfort for our patients. Our staff is devoted to our patients and will take the time to discuss your dental options one-on-one with you, and what would be best for your overall oral health.

    Gatesville Family Dental is inviting – a place where the entire family can be treated. Our staff is personable, and loves nothing more than helping our patients have a positive dental experience. To us a positive dental experience includes not only quality work, but contagious laughter and high spirits. All of this helped us to be named Business of the Year in 2008!
