Meet Dr. Sawyer
Dr Sawyer is a local native Texan, and pediatric dentist, from San Angelo.
"I love pediatric dentistry- and the kids I get to serve in the process. Not everyone gets to do exactly what they want for a career. I'm very blessed to have had the opprtunities I have, that have led me to where I am. I want to share my knowledge and skills with families in hopes that we can reduce children's dental decay and other dental health problems for our kids. Working with such diverse personalities in our field require a lot of flexibility and a lot of energy. But it pays off at the end of the day. I truly feel that I've been blessed in working with children. I know it is what I was meant to do."
Dr. Sawyer's motto is "We treat your kids as our own." He wants the parents of the San Angelo area to know how their children can receive the best pediatric dental care possible.
A Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD), he is a specialist who knows how to provide your kids "best care." The ABPD is the only certifying Board recognized by the American Dental Association for the specialty of pediatric dentistry.

Outside the Office
I grew up in Fort Stockton and Sanderson, Texas. I participated in a variety of sports and One Act Play. I graduated from Sanderson High School in 1986 and went to college at Angelo State University. After attending Dental School in San Antonio, I was in the Navy for 10 years and during that time had the opportunity to meet lots of wonderful people and travel to some very interesting places. I now live in San Angelo, returning out of choice. My wife Sandy and I love to support our daughters, Morgan and Kayli in all of the things that they participate in. We also love spending time together hanging out as a family, whether that be visiting them where they attend college, going to the movies, or vacationing together. We are also active members of our church. Things I enjoy are hunting with my dogs Smokey and Swagger, fishing, and playing raquetball. I also enjoy reading an watching sports-especially college football.
