Dr. David J. Dyer was raised in what was once a rural Southlake, Texas. He recalls riding his horse as a boy along the pastures that lined 1709, now Southlake Blvd. He graduated from Carroll High School, and as he expanded his horizons – so did his hometown. Dr. Dyer attended Baylor University where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Economics with a pre-dental focus. It was at Baylor that he met his wife, Kate Dyer. They were married one week after graduation and held their reception at the Denton Country Club. It was from this time on that Argyle became the home base for the Dyers.
Dr. David Dyer joined the U.S. Navy as a commissioned officer after graduating from the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio (UTHSCSA) Dental School. He served as a general dentist for three years to the U.S. Marines stationed in 29 Palms, CA. He then was accepted into the orthodontic residency program at the University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston. Upon graduation from orthodontic residency, Dr. Dyer was stationed as an orthodontist serving Sailors, Marines, and their families in Okinawa, Japan. Following that overseas tour, he was assigned as the head orthodontic faculty at the Naval Medical Hospital in Portsmouth, Virginia. Dr. Dyer finished his career with the U.S. Navy as a Lieutenant Commander after 13 years of active duty service. The Dyers were greatly blessed by their time in the military. They gained valuable life experiences and met an uncountable number of patriots full of honor, courage, and commitment.
Dr. David J. Dyer was thrilled for the opportunity to buy his father’s orthodontic practice, Dr. James Dyer. Part of the reason Dr. David Dyer choose the profession of orthodontics was his respect and admiration for his father, Dr. Jim Dyer. Even from a young age, Dr. Dyer noticed that his dad loved his career and was able to maintain a great balance between his work, family, church, and community. The ability to be mentored by one’s father in a vocational field echoes back to ages of old. It is more rare in the modern era, but no less important and beneficial to all parties involved. Both Dr. Jim Dyer and Dr. David Dyer appreciate the significance of this lineage and the positive benefits it creates for patients. These two men share much in common, from their spiritual beliefs and general world view, to their orthodontic practice philosophy and passion to help their patients. A high standard of care, professionalism, and team work are all essential to the heart beat of this practice.
