Meet Dr. Deborah Meadows
Deborah Meadows, DDS
My passion to help others is what sparked my interest in dentistry. I love my work, whether I’m fixing a tooth that has been causing discomfort, correcting a smile that someone has been hiding, or just doing a simple filling. Each patient has a different need, some very simple and others are more complicated, but it has always been my goal over the past 27 years to provide care tailored to each patient’s unique concerns. Teeth are about more than beautiful smiles; a person’s overall health and well-being is intrinsically related to their oral health.
Education and Continuing Education
- Undergraduate Degree – University of Oklahoma
- Doctorate of Dental Surgery – University of Texas Dental Branch-Houston Texas
I attend a variety of continuing education and strive to keep up with new procedures and materials. I have many opportunities to expand my knowledge and training though my affiliations with the Texas Dental Association and the American Dental Association. Being aware of the latest changes in dentistry allows me to offer more options to my patients, in addition to the fact that I simply love learning!
Outside the Office
I grew up right here in the Lake Highlands neighborhood of Dallas, TX, and have enjoyed living, working, and raising my family in this wonderful community. I am the proud mother of four children, three boys and a girl. My family is the highlight of my life, and spending time with them is my favorite thing to do. When I do have free time, however, I am active in my church and participate with my college sorority alumnae group.
In the Community
I have spent a lot of time in programs that educate on addiction. Having had a family member who struggled with addiction opened my eyes to the struggles the addict faces. Treating patients who are abusing alcohol or drugs can be very common in today’s society. Whether treating patients who have extensively damaged their teeth from drugs without shaming or judging them, or helping someone newly sober to manage their pain medication, my addiction education has been helpful to my profession.
