Dr. Banks is a lifelong Texan, and central to her practice of dentistry is the principle of providing patients with the highest quality service in a conservative manner. She strongly believes in working together with patients to create comprehensive treatment plans that best fit their dental needs and long-term goals. Ultimately, she wants to give them the thoughtful type of care that she would offer to her own family members!
As for her education, Dr. Banks graduated from the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas with her Bachelor’s in Business Administration. She then pursued her Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. After working in private practice for some time and listening to the needs of her patients, she was inspired to pursue advanced dentistry, leading to her acceptance in a nationally recognized post-doctorate program. She completed the Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residency from the University of Texas Health Science Center at the top of her class. This program focused on a wide variety of advanced dental techniques, including implant dentistry, IV sedation, the removal of wisdom teeth, and care for patients with medical conditions.
