Dr. Guess' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Guess "Richard Guess has been in Wichita Falls since 3rd grade and is a graduate of Rider High. Being a Wichitan for 40 years, he has an understanding and value for our North Texas community. He attended the University of Texas, and truly bleeds orange. His dental school years were spent in San Antonio at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio--where he rented a house with three Aggies. Result? He has an appreciation for fans of all or our Texas schools. Rick moved back to Wichita Falls after graduation because he thought that Wichita Falls was a great community to serve and raise a future family. Dr. Guess is married to Tina Stroud, also from Wichita Falls. Tina's field of interest is dental hygiene and, as a graduate of MSU, worked as an RDH for many years. He has two step-children, Laura and Bryan, who are married and also live in town. They love living with Wichita Falls, and have fun attending local events such as Cajun Fest. They are very invested in our community. He is a current member of the board of directors at The Arts Council Wichita Falls Area, which runs the Kemp Center for the Arts and The Forum (which used to be The Women's Forum). He also served for six years as a member of the board of directors for the BBB of North Central Texas. Rick and Tina believe in shopping and eating local--and supporting all of our local small businesses in general. "

Dr. Guess Says:

We strive to satisfy every patient that entrusts us with their dental care. Dr. Guess is not finished with a treatment until the patient is happy with their result. This policy always takes communication between both parties. We have always been open to suggestion and feedback! Feedback helps us to learn how we can serve our patients more satisfactorily. Suggestions and feedback are MUCH more helpful in
