Is Education What the Doctor Ordered?


Is education just what the doctor ordered? That seems to be the case for Dr. Tim Gardner, D.D.S. of Conroe and Montgomery Comprehensive Dental Centers.

This year marks the 9th annual Timothy E. Gardner, D.D.S. Scholarship award. The $1000 scholarship is eligible to graduating high school seniors attending Conroe, Willis, and Montgomery High Schools, who are attending college in the fall of 2018. One senior from each school will receive the award at their high school’s senior awards night.

Dr. Gardner presented the scholarship award and checks to the following seniors: Viridiana Barrera, Conroe High School; Troy Richard, Montgomery High School; and Kylie Dobraski, Willis High School.

Applicants were required to complete an application which includes their GPA, class rank, extracurricular activities, volunteer hours, etc., as well as two short answer essay questions.

Hate the Waiting Game?


In today’s hustle and bustle, always-on-the-go lifestyles, it’s no surprise that people are always looking to get things done more quickly.

As corporate dental practices continue to pop up in the most convenient of places, it’s important that our patients (and potential patients!) understand just what sets us apart.

But don’t take our word for it; here’s what our patients who have visited corporate offices have to say:

·         “I scheduled an appointment for a cleaning, but waited almost two hours before I was even seated! The worst part? The same thing happened to my husband a few days later.”

·         “Every visit there’s a new doctor. I feel like treatment is always changing and I don’t even know the person digging around in my mouth.”

·         “When scheduling I’ve had to call repeatedly and leave messages. When they do answer or call back, their hours are so limited that it’s difficult to schedule. I don’t know what would happen in a true dental emergency!”

·         “The staff rarely make me feel like I’m more than a number. I imagine their turnover is high because it always seems like there’s someone new and not quite trained.”

·         “I just had a crown done a few months ago and it’s already giving me issues. I was told there’s nothing that they can do and the crown will need to be redone – at full price!”

Here’s how we’re different:

·         We value our patients’ time. We do not double book and rarely do patients even find themselves with time to take a seat in our reception area.

·         Dr. Gardner has proudly served Montgomery County for 27 years. He and Dr. Harris consider their patients extended family and enjoy hearing and learning about their personal lives. Continuity of treatment is incredibly important to both of them.

·         All patients are given the doctors’ personal cell phone numbers in the event of any emergency. In addition, our phones are answered 24/7 by a friendly team member, not an answering service. Call by 12 pm and you’ll be seen for a dental emergency the same day – guaranteed! We also proudly offer early morning and late afternoon appointments to accommodate even the most complicated of schedules.

·         We pride ourselves on our customer service. It is the goal of each team member to over deliver and make sure that our patients have an exceptional experience in our office. We don’t take hiring lightly – all of our team members are cross-trained to better serve you!

·         Our doctors stand behind their work. So much so that as long as patients maintain their regular cleanings, work is Waran’teeth’ed a minimum of five years

6th Annual Dentistry for Veterans


Montgomery Comprehensive Dental Center, armed with staff and volunteers, is out to change lives by offering free dentistry to the veterans of Montgomery County as they host the 6th Annual Dentistry for Veterans event.

The event will take place Saturday, November 11, 2017 at the office of Montgomery Comprehensive Dental Center, at 951 Lone Star Parkway in Montgomery. Prescreening is preferred and those who qualify are asked to call beginning Monday, October 2 to make a pre-screening reservation.

The event will treat those who have honorably served in the U.S. Armed Forces. There will be no cost to those who show proof of military service. Procedures include, but are not limited to, cleanings, exams, extractions and fillings.

“I hold our military in very high regard,” Dr. Tim Gardner, owner and dentist at Montgomery Comprehensive Dental Center said. “Without them we would not enjoy the freedoms we have today. This is just a small way to give back to a great cause.” 

In 2016, Dentistry for Veterans donated more than $103,000 worth of free dentistry. They hope to grow the event this year.

For more information please call 936-585-6656 or visit them online at 

Dental Assisting Program


Many of our patients and community members have asked about the dental assisting program housed in our Conroe location. We're sharing information regarding the school in case you know of someone who might be interested in attending.

Dr. Gardner opened Montgomery County Dental Assisting School in 2013 after becoming frustrated with technical schools offering dental assisting programs. He learned that students were paying about $6,000 for tuition and upon completion of the program had little to no clinical skills or experience.

Our course’s unique approach goes beyond book work, unlike the technical schools, and dives into clinical participation in an operating dental practice. This one-of-a-kind learning experience equips students with valuable skills and information they need tomake an immediate difference in the dental field.

Montgomery County Dental Assisting School’s mission is to properly train and educate students in the art of dental assisting. Students can expect to receive personalized teaching in a small class setting, hands-on experience with state-of-the-art equipment and understanding of dental terminology. With the added flexibility of classes held on Saturdays for just 10 weeks, many have the opportunity to continue working while training for a new career.

If you know someone interested in pursuing a dental assisting career, please send them our way. The next session is set to begin on Saturday, September 16, 2017.
