Even at an early age, Dr. Bryce Gates aspired to make dentistry his future career. Hailing from a family of dentists afforded him the opportunity to glean knowledge and acquire hands-on experience years before attending dental school.
His dream of helping others achieve and maintain healthy, beautiful smiles has finally come to fruition. Dr. Gates is the proud owner of Custom Dental of McKinney, where specialty care in multiple aspects of dentistry can be found under one roof.
“My uncle is a dentist and is my inspiration,” Dr. Gates says. “I started working in his office as a dental assistant at age 17. That mentorship was a great, influential experience for me, and key to my approach and success in my practice today.”
You’ll be greeted by a welcoming, friendly staff dedicated to making your dental experience top priority. The team starts each morning in a huddle to discuss how they will conduct themselves that day both spiritually and professionally. They close with a prayer, setting the tone for the rest of the day.
The faith-based office environment reflects Dr. Gates’ own spiritual ideals. From the uplifting praise music to the team’s moral philosophy, the office’s distinctive atmosphere is a place of comfort and peace. The warm and appealing décor feels like home, putting you at ease for a relaxing dental experience.
“We concentrate on building solid, long-lasting relationships with patients,” Dr. Gates says. His approach to your treatment starts by actively listening to your needs and goals. Then, after a complete and thorough examination, he reviews and discusses the diagnosis to determine the best treatment options to consider for your particular situation.
The team’s attention is always focused on their patient’s total dental experience. “We care for our patients with compassion and integrity, always mindful of their comfort and well-being at every visit,” says Dr. Gates.
Specialized Training Under One Roof
Dr. Gates has assembled an impressive team of dentists specializing in different areas of dentistry. His equally impressive staff of dental assistants and hygienists are skilled at providing the same level of care and concern for patients that Dr. Gates and his associate dentists do.
Dr. Nigel Kasali has been a Custom Dental team member for several years. “Working with Dr. Gates has been a great experience and has helped me grow professionally,” he says.
Dr. Joel Skousen, Dr. George Jacob, and Dr. Mark Saffold round out the team of associate dentists. The cohesive group of professionals work together to deliver excellence in multiple dentistry fields including orthodontics, implantology, and laser gum therapy. The wide breadth of experience they have obtained in these specialized procedures sets Custom Dental apart as a unique leader in the industry.
Dr. Gates is proud to provide patients with the latest advancements in dental technology and treatment options, from cosmetic and restorative to surgical and root canal treatments.
“We invest in thousands of hours of orthodontic training in combination with surgical training,” he says. This added experience and knowledge gained from continued education proves advantageous to patients, knowing they can get most any treatment needed within a single office. No longer do they have to travel from one office to another for specialized services like dental implants and crowns. “Everything is crafted and completed here in our office,” Dr. Gates adds.
Dr. Gates graduated in the top of his class from the University of Central Oklahoma and the University of Texas School of Dentistry. In his leisure time, he enjoys traveling, exploring, and being with his family. He and his wife Brigid, a school nurse, have a two-year-old son, Alexander.
The Custom Dental team is excited to help you reach your optimal dental health. They invite you to call with questions or visit their website, where you’ll find photos of remarkable results and inspiring dental journeys.
