JOSEPH DYLAN EVERETT, DDS
Originally from further north in the Texas Panhandle, Dr. Everett was born in Amarillo to a great family of ranchers and farmers, and called the nearby town of Stratford, Texas his home. After graduating high school as salutatorian in his class, he attended McMurry University in Abilene, Texas, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry while participating on the football and track teams. It was during the summer breaks that, under Dr. Dennis Plunk’s mentorship in his general dentistry office in Dumas, Texas, Dr. Everett found his calling into the dental field.
Dr. Everett earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery at Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry. During his dental training he discovered his passion for surgical procedures and decided to pursue his specialty training in Periodontics. After completing a Master’s Degree in Oral Biology at Texas A&M University, Dr. Everett decided it was time to return to the Texas Panhandle.
He is married to his college sweetheart, Kelsey, a radiology technician. They are proud to call Lubbock their new home and hope to raise their daughter, Hadleigh, in the same West Texas traditions that he grew up in.
