Dr. Dyer graduated with a B.A. in biology from the University of Texas at Austin in 1984. He earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree from Baylor College of Dentistry (Dallas) in 1988. Much to his chagrin, this Longhorn has his D.D.S. degree from Texas A&M — the university took over Baylor College of Dentistry in the past decade. Dr. Dyer then attended the University of Texas Dental Branch in Houston where he earned a master’s in periodontics in 1991.
A Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology, Dr. Dyer has won several awards for his research on regeneration, which has been published in a variety of professional journals. His research on laser treatments led to the FDA approval of the use of lasers in specific periodontal treatments. He is a leader in the field of laser dentistry.
Dr. Dyer is a native of Lamesa, TX where he spent his youth playing tennis, taking piano lessons, and working on his grandparents’ cotton farm. After spending a lot of time in his father’s dental practice, Dr. Dyer decided at a young age that he wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps.
For more than 35 years, Dr. Dyer has been married to his college sweetheart, Jacque. They have two children together, a son and a daughter. They recently acquired a daughter-in-law and son-in-law. Dr. Dyer’s family is a source of pride and pleasure. Outside the office, he is an avid cyclist. He has scaled two major Colorado passes, ridden in the MS 150 (Houston to Austin) many times, and rides around the local area on Saturdays with his St. Arnold’s Brewery teammates. Dr. Dyer also enjoys bird hunting, gardening, and being active in his church, Christ United Methodist Church.
