Finley & Runyan and Southwest Dental Care of Abilene merge to form Southwest Dental Group


ABILENE, TX / ACCESSWIRE / November 10, 2021 / Two respected Abilene dental practices, Finley & Runyan and Southwest Dental Care of Abilene, have joined forces to become Southwest Dental Group.

Southwest Dental Group opened its new office on Antilley Road in August 2021 in a newly constructed building with cutting edge technology.

“We believe that combining our practices under one roof will make things more convenient for patients,” said Dr. Richard Gore. “Because we can offer more services in one place, we refer fewer patients and are able to treat them in our office. “

The office offers a wide range of services including general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry (such as dental implants, crowns, veneers and teeth whitening), pediatric dentistry (including sealants), orthodontic treatments, oral surgery, periodontics (detection and treatment of gum disease). ) and the treatment of sleep apnea and TMJ / temporomandibular disease.

“By merging our practices, we are combining the expertise of four vendors, allowing us to consult with each other for better results,” said Dr Clayton Runyan.

The four practitioners of the Southwest Dental Group, three of whom are from Abilene, have over nine decades of combined dental experience and all share a strong commitment to community service.

In addition to his solid foundation in general dentistry, Dr. Runyan has particular expertise in dental implants. Dr. Finley is certified to treat patients with traditional orthodontic systems and Invisalign, which is a practical alternative to braces.

Dr. Gore emphasizes cosmetic restorations, as well as functional restorations that help patients chew more comfortably and relieve jaw pain. Dr. Chris Proctor is passionate about helping people overcome fear and anxiety about dental care by using new technology that makes treatment more comfortable.

“Although we have combined our practices and have a new name, our values ​​and quality of care have remained the same,” said Dr. Proctor. “We are focused on listening to patients and their oral health education in a friendly and welcoming environment.”
