Dr. Howard Hunt, Jr., known to many of his patients as “Dr. Mister”, obtained his Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science, Magna Cum Laude from Texas A&M University. He then earned his Doctorate in Dental Surgery, Cum Laude at the University of Texas Dental School in San Antonio, which is the number one ranked dental program in the country. Upon graduation from dental school, Dr. Hunt began treating children on the White Mountain and San Carlos Apache Indian Reservations in Arizona in a mobile dental trailer – yes, a 26’ trailer hooked to the back of his truck was his dental office! This experience solidified Dr. Hunt’s respect and appreciation of pediatric dentistry. He then returned to San Antonio to complete a residency in Advanced Education General Dentistry at the University of Texas Health Science Center, followed by an additional two year residency in Pediatric Dentistry at the University of Texas Health Science Center, also a top ranked program, where he served as Chief Resident.
