Dr. Gene Gress


Dr. Gress is a native Texan. He received his BS degree from Texas A&M University and his DDS degree from Baylor College of Dentistry. He is currently working on two master’s degrees in Medical Nutrition and Sports Performance. Dr. Gress, his wife, and their cat recently moved to Virginia and live in the Smith Mountain Lake area. When the sun is shining, he and his wife take walks by the lake to look at all the gorgeous wildlife. While in Texas, Dr. Gress owned and operated several dental offices across the state.

He has enjoyed helping all his patients from six months to 95 years old. He has experience in most dental treatment areas and he is looking forward to incorporating a nutritional aspect into the practice.
