• Where are you from originally and how long have you lived in town?
    • I was born and raised in Kingwood (Bear Branch!) and lived here until I left for a decade for college and dental school in Dallas, then residency and my master’s degree in Chicago. While my family lives in Oakhurst, my parents still live in the same house I was born in.

 

  • Child(ren) and Age(s)?
    • David Asher “Dash” – 3 years
    • Sadie– 7 months

 

  • One thing people would be surprised to know about you…
    • I surprised myself and got the top national score when passing the comprehensive certification exam for the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
  • Anyone special you’d like to thank for helping you through parenthood?
    • My wife – my rock, my encourager, my funnier and better 2/3’s. Her patience astounds me and her creativity amazes me. Daily. And my parents – they survived parenting “strong willed” me, so they are a perfect source of advice to parent any type of child!

 

  • Favorite things to do with your kids?
    • Find out their favorite thing (that week) and let them beat me at it. Sadie is only 7 months and can nearly dance better than I can after my three-plus decades.

 

  • Are you involved in a business venture, a local organization, a creative endeavor, or in the corporate world? Please share!
    • I am the owner of Care for Kids Pediatric Dentistry. While I am a pediatric dentist and the official “boss”, my wife is the brains of the practice in creativity, branding, and social media for the practice. My staff are the heart and soul of the care we provide. We’re not “us” without all our team members!

  • How do you balance work and family?
    • I am still improving the art of balancing the two. I make sure that my wife and kids know I am available and will stop what I am doing to spend time with them when they ask. I regularly find myself awake and working at 3 am to make sure I have enough time for the rest of my priorities.
  • Best “Dad advice” you have received so far?
    • The best traits of a father are sacrifice, perseverance, and patience. How else will your son or daughter know how to treat their future families if you don’t model it daily for 20 years or so? Pursue your wife and children’s emotional and spiritual wellbeing as your primary focus so they always know their value.Any “Dad Advice” you would like to share with other dads?
      • Don’t give in to the temptation of comparing your strengths to other’s weaknesses – your spouse, kids, coworkers, and friends. “I do all these things and they never do those things…” It is never fair and only wounds a relationship. Instead, try comparing their strengths against your weaknesses for a fresh perspective. You might end up appreciating them more than you’d think…!

 

  • How has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?
    • To see the care we give to our patients warmly received and returned with abundance is humbling. We aim to treat every family like our family and each child like our own kid. I think the community appreciates the authenticity of how we practice and the support they’ve shown encourages us to continue to grow and improve our service to the Kingwood community and beyond.
