I am sure that in just a few weeks, we will be longing for a cool breeze and a shower or two. Oh well, that’s Texas weather! This issue’s cover story is a special one about some special doctors. After a seven- day job interview while working with Dr. T. Bob Davis’ 43rd annual mission trip to San Raimundo, Guatemala, oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Bob McNeill and periodontist, Dr. Stephanie Briggs decided they were a good fit. With similar practice and patient care philoso- phy, the doctors have joined forces as part of The Dental Specialists group practice located in Garland.
