Caring For More Than Your Smile
TD Family Dentistry is new to the Katy community, but not to caring for your smile. Dr. Tracy Petry, DDS and Dr. Dana Raspberry, DDS opened TD Family Dentistry in October of 2018. However, they each have been practicing dentistry for over 20 years.
Both Dr. Petry and Dr. Raspberry have unique stories of why they got into the business of caring for smiles. However, they are both deeply passionate about dentistry. For Dr. Petry, the reason behind wanting to become a dentist came at a young age. She said she had horrible teeth as a child, and therefore had braces at an early age.
“After I got my braces off, it really changed the way I felt about myself and gave me self-confidence,” Dr. Petry said. “I wanted to be able to do that for other people because I know what kind of impact it can make on your life.”
Unlike Dr. Petry, Dr. Raspberry didn’t discover his passion for dentistry until later in life. He was a practicing engineer for eight years before deciding he wanted a more fulfilling career. He personally did not have job satisfaction as an engineer. So, he started researching different careers and was led to dentistry.
“Once I got into dentistry and actually started practicing, I saw how it was changing people’s lives and making people feel better about themselves,” Dr. Raspberry said. “I felt like it was what I was called to do. So I have been practicing ever since and have loved every minute of it.”
At TD Family Dentistry, customers can expect friendly customer service and a personable visit. Both Dr. Petry and Dr. Raspberry care about their patients and see them as more than just an appointment.
“We love what we do,” Dr. Petry said. “We have a passion for dentistry. We are concerned about our patients overall health, not just fixing their teeth.”
It is important for their patients to feel at ease, calm and comfortable as soon as they walk through their doors. They recognize some patients have anxiety about visiting the dentist and want ease their fears through with their calm and welcoming atmosphere.
“We want people to feel comfortable and to not feel afraid,” Dr. Petry said. “We create a really caring environment so people feel very comfortable to come to the dentist.”
TD Family Dentistry offers everything from basic dental care and cleanings, to advance services like crowns, dentures, and dental implants, along with cosmetic dentistry like lumineers and veneers, teeth whitening and Invisalign. They look forward to serving the Katy community through these services and more for years to come.
“We are going to be here for a long time,” Dr. Raspberry said. “We have invested in our facilities to provide our clients with the latest technology to give them the greatest level of care possible.”
Dr. Petry and Dr. Raspberry would like to invite the Katy community to come to their open house on Saturday, February 23, 2018. They would love to meet you and give you a tour of the practice.
“We want to become part of the community,” Dr. Raspberry said. “We want to be interactive with the community, not just for their dental needs.”
While Dr. Petry and Dr. Raspberry are not from the Katy area, they have already experienced what a special community it is. They hope their business can add to what makes the Katy community special by running their small business with the same strong values of the Katy business community.
“We have enjoyed working with the patients we have had since we opened,” Dr. Petry said. “They have all been so friendly and very welcoming. We look forward to serving even more people in the Katy community.”
