Image of: San Antonio cosmetic and family dentist, Dr. John Moore, DDS.Since Dr. John Moore’s undergraduate years, he has always excelled in his work and strives to be the best San Antonio dentist. He received his Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Texas in 1977 and then went on to receive a Doctorate degree from the University of Health Science Center San Antonio in 1981.

In dental school, Dr. Moore’s professors discovered he was a unique student because he went above and beyond the requirements. His final task as a senior was to work on 12 crowns and bridges. Dr. Moore went above the required amount and completed work on 65 dental crowns and bridges; a record that has yet to be broken.

Dr. John Moore, DDS, a San Antonio dentist using orthodontics, started as a research assistant and teaching assistant at the University of Colorado and University of Texas. He moved on to Clinical Instructor and the Assistant Professor of Dentistry at The University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio. Here, he taught dental anatomy, restorative dentistry and clinical dentistry for 10 years (1978-1989).

In addition to teaching, he has lectured both nationally and internationally (at UTHSC, TDA meetings and at The Mexican Academy of Prosthodontics). In dental school, Dr. Moore was a Senior Clinical Consultant and has delivered numerous dental continuing education courses at both the UTHSC Dental School and Texas Dental Association conventions. Dr. Moore has many certificates and awards in cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, occlusal rehabilitation, Invisalign, Lumineers, computerized dentistry, prosthodontics, dental laboratory technology and ceramics. He has been performing San Antonio cosmetic dentistry procedures for over 30 years.

In his work with San Antonio orthodontics, Dr. Moore has developed a groundbreaking method of combining San Antonio Invisalign invisible braces and porcelain veneers in a system to correct major jaw and tooth alignment problems.  He has successfully applied this method to treat patients that otherwise would have required years of metal braces and surgery to cut their jaws apart and realign them.

Beyond his achievements in dentistry, Dr. Moore and his wife, Carol, are active humanitarians who have received recognition from the Citizens Commission on Human Rights, National Humane Education Society and International Fund for Animal Welfare, just to name a few. Dr. Moore has also been a contributing member of Texas Dentists for Healthy Smiles, donating over $21,000.00 in dental care to underprivileged people of San Antonio since 2001.
