Dr. David A. Gonzalez really puts the “hero” in Heroes Dental.

Gentle, caring, and invested in the oral health of his patients, Dr. Gonzalez is simply a different kind of dentist. He knows that when families choose Heroes Dental, they are choosing quality, innovation, and personalized care. That’s why Dr. Gonzalez takes his time to ensure that you and your little heroes are being treated with the best dental care possible.

Patients rave about Dr. Gonzalez’s thoroughness and attention to detail. Rather than rushing through his exams and procedures, David takes the time to explain the entire process to patients so that they can feel as comfortable as possible. For Dr. Gonzalez, it’s the simple understanding that he is there to serve the patient’s needs that makes all the difference in the world.

David knows just how scary a trip to the dentist can be, so he makes sure every visitor is treated with the consideration that they deserve, from the moment they walk into his office until the moment they leave Heroes Dental, grinning from ear to ear.

Proud to be born and raised in the Rio Grande Valley, David knew early in life that he wanted a career where he could serve his community. That’s exactly why he dedicated himself to the field of dentistry. A graduate from Rio Grande City High School, David would go on to pursue his undergraduate degree at Texas A&M University and UT Austin College of Pharmacy before obtaining his Doctorate at UTHealth School of Dentistry in Houston in 1985.

Since then, Dr. Gonzalez has been passionately committed to delivering only the best in dental care for each and every patient he sees. And he has mastered his craft with over 32 years of experience. Practicing family dentistry in the McAllen metropolitan area, Dr. Gonzalez has sharpened his skills in all phases of adult dentistry and has even developed an amazing level of expertise in cosmetic dentistry.

Dr. Gonzalez works hard to provide each patient with comprehensive treatment. He believes in the value of preventative dentistry and does everything in his power to increase the longevity, health, and aesthetic value of his patient’s teeth.

When not defeating cavities and destroying plaque, Dr. Gonzalez enjoys spending time with his lovely wife, Yadira Tamez, who he has been married to since 1987. Together the couple have two children, David Jr. and Elyse.

David Jr. is a diesel mechanic and Elyse recently graduated from the South Texas College of Law. He is proud of his children’s accomplishments and hopes to remain a positive figure in the lives.

In his free time, Dr. Gonzalez continues to work diligently at his family ranch, managing his parents’ beef master cattle operation. David also enjoys cooking and has been known to prepare some unbelievably mean barbeque.
