Rocco P. De Santis, DDS

Meet Dr. De Santis

I wanted to become a dentist from the time I was nine years old. I attended high school in El Paso and excelled in school and in community service. I was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout and was the young Texan of the month  during 1973. After graduating from Coronado High School I attended and graduated from Trinity University with high honors. I studied dentistry at the University of Texas Dental Branch in San Antonio and  graduated in 1981.

In January of 1982 I opened my dental practice in Kilgore and have been serving this community for 39 years as dentist, soccer coach , boy scout volunteer and church member. Shortly after arriving in Kilgore, I married my best friend , Dimi in May of 1982. We have  two boys, Peter and Ryan . So far we have one grandson, Rocco James and there  is one on the way.

My greatest interest these days is spending time with Dimi and my family . As time permits I enjoy racquetball, soccer, gardening, woodworking and honing my pizza cooking skills.

I love dentistry and the ability to change lives by improving peoples smiles. I hope to continue working in dentistry for many years to come.
