Meet Our Plano Dentist
Dr. Robert Weygandt
How I Got Started
My 30+ year career began with a powerful and challenging education. After earning my BA in Psychology from Baylor University in 1975, I went on to get a BS in Biology from the University of Texas at Dallas. Soon after, I started dental school at the Baylor College of Dentistry and eventually graduated in 1981. I’ve been practicing ever since, and I’ve loved every minute of it.
Of course, I believe in order to be the best caregiver possible, you can never stop educating yourself. I still do many hours of continuing education every year to stay on top of the latest trends and advancements in dentistry so I can bring them right to my patients. I’ve trained extensively in a number of dental disciplines, including restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, endodontics (root canals), dental implants, children’s dentistry, and interceptive orthodontics. I also maintain very active memberships in the American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, and the North Texas County Dental Society.
Why I Became a Dentist
With a degree in psychology and biology, what ultimately led me to become a dentist? To me, the answer is simple: I really enjoy being a major help for someone in need. Nothing is more satisfying than relieving someone’s pain, restoring a damaged tooth, or giving them a beautiful smile with a cosmetic treatment. To me, it’s always been about the patients, and that hasn’t changed since day one.
Outside of Dentistry
Away from the office, you’ll either find me spending time with my 3 grown children or playing golf. My 2 daughters and son are spread out all over the country these days, so any opportunity I have to see them, I tend to take it. When I do have the luxury of free time, you’ll find me on the green working on my handicap. The most exciting thing going on right now is that my middle daughter has a grandbaby that was born in September and we look forward to spending time with her!
