Dr. Michael Harris joined the Killeen Dental Group in 2014, and became the owner and CEO in 2015. His favorite part of dentistry is helping his patients achieve their best smile, by showing them what is possible then guiding them through the process, step-by-step. Dr. Harris says, " Dentistry is
both an art and a science, so each patient must be treated as an individual." His compassionate approach and years of experience create a winning combination for the patients at Killeen Dental Group.
Dr. Harris graduated from Baylor College of Dentistry and completed a one-year General Practice Residency at Olin E Teague Veterans Center in Temple before opening his own practice in 1981. He lived and worked in Temple for thirty years, before moving to Killeen in 2014. He is a fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry, recognized for commitment to advanced and continuing education. He has a passion for teaching as well as learning, and has served as associate professor at the University of Texas Dental Branch, and interim director of the UT graduate residency program.
Dr. Harris specializes in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. He works closely with the area specialists in the advancing field of implant dentistry, including the innovative All-On-Four denture, an implant-supported denture that gives superior results for patients who need to replace all or many of their teeth. His advanced training in implant dentistry ensures the optimal result for his patients for whom implants are the right choice.
Dr. Harris grew up in the Houston area, and started college as a music major (trumpet) before deciding on science and dentistry as his career path. He earned a Bachelors of Science in Chemistry from Sam Houston State University, and was married to his wife Carol shortly afterward.
He and Carol have four married children, and love being grandparents to the growing number of grandchildren! Their favorite pastimes include grilling in the backyard, time with friends, and of course, family gatherings. He likes to sing, especially a cappella (His secret talent is singing "barbershop style", and he was in a barbershop quartet in high school and college.) He and Carol also enjoy teaching marriage and discipleship classes to young couples at Grace Bible Church.
