About Your Dentist

Thomas R. Watkins, DDS

Dr. Tom Watkins, or Dr. Tom as he is commonly known, is originally from the small west Texas town of Levelland. It is there that he met his wife of 28+ years. Together they have two grown children, one grandson and a granddaughter on the way.

His personal motto, "Loving to live by living to love," is evident in all aspects of his life. Every year Dr. Tom travels along with a group of other caring individuals to Guatemala to provide dental care for those in need. He plans to continue doing so for many, many years to come. Dr. Tom enjoys active pastimes like mountain biking, hiking, and fishing (especially deep sea fishing), and some not-so-active pastimes like good 'ol backyard sit-under-the-tree visiting with friends and family. He is also an active member of his church and his serving spirit permeates his work.
