For more than a decade, Dr. Charles Dyer IV has treated gum disease, placed dental implants, and restored the smiles of thousands of patients in Cypress and surrounding areas. The award-winning periodontist and implantologist is trained in all aspects of advanced dental services, but specializes in dental implants, crown lengthening, bone grafting, oral biopsies, and all manner of extractions, including wisdom teeth and esthetic procedures to restore functionality to the mouth when teeth have been lost due to periodontal (gum) disease.
Now Dr. Dyer offers PRIMESCAN, an advanced dental technology that allows for the production of high-precision images of natural teeth and preparations; it also provides extremely accurate images of other materials like implants and soft tissue. “With this new scanning technology, a digital impression can be completed very quickly, allowing for an increase in quality and convenience,” he explains. “It also eliminates the need for multiple dental visits and traditional dental impressions for the patient without compromising the durability and natural look of the restoration for the referring doctor.”
While Dr. Dyer enjoys helping people work through their dental needs, he is also committed to contributing to his community through charitable work and donations to nonprofit organizations. “In order for a community to grow and be prosperous, the people in it need to be happy and healthy—physically, mentally, and emotionally. It continues to be our honor to serve and be of service to those in need.”
Dr. Dyer has improved the lives of more than 40,000 under-served children in the city since getting involved with the Houston Children’s Charity’s “Back2School” in 2013. “Children’s dental health plays a critical role in their overall health and well-being and requires attention starting at an early age and routinely throughout their lives,” says the father of three. This is not the first time Dr. Dyer has been involved in helping provide healthy, beautiful smiles to last a lifetime, though. In 2017, Dr. Dyer paired up with Cypress Dental Assisting School to share his office for an extended dental assisting program designed to provide more depth of knowledge and training to dental assistants than many dental assisting schools offer. “Having the power to improve the lives of others is a privilege, and by investing in the younger generation, we are investing in our future.”
Helping animals has been one of Dr. Dyer’s strongest passions since childhood, though, and it shines through his work with The Peter Emily International Veterinary Dental Foundation (PEIVDF). “My wife and I have always had a desire for helping animals and, several years ago, we discovered the foundation and began providing our skills working on exotic captive animals because of doors that were opened by our patients.” Recently, the specialist became the first elected president of the foundation. In his spare time, he travels across the country performing dental procedures on lions, tigers, primates, and bears in animal care facilities, zoos, and sanctuaries.
