Meet the Doctors

Dr Roger and Dr Nadene Tipton
 

Roger Tipton, D.D.S., M.S., P.A.

Dr. Roger Tipton is a specialist in dentistry for kids and those with special needs (a pediatric dentist) in Lubbock, TX. After receiving his dental degree at Baylor College of Dentistry, he continued his specialty training at Baylor, receiving his Master's degree with rotations at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital and Children's Medical Center in Dallas. For those French speaking West Texans, you will feel especially at ease with Dr. Roger since he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in French at Texas Tech University and also speaks French.  

Dr. Roger began practicing in 1994 and is one of the few Pediatric Dentists to have earned his Pediatric Dental Board Certification which is a voluntary effort in continuing education that requires personally treated case presentations for critical review by a panel of nationally respected peers.  

It is his goal to make your child's first dental experiences positive for a lifetime of good dental care! Your child may even forget he/she is at the dentist in our fun and positive atmosphere. Safety for your child during dental procedures is also of primary importance and concern to Dr. Roger. Dr. Roger maintains current training in Pediatric Advanced Life Support and utilizes the services of an anesthesiologist MD when extensive dental procedures are necessary. Monitors and equipment are on site that exceed the minimum standards required for safely administering sedation.

Dr. Roger is an active member in the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association and past president of the South Plains Dental Society and past Chairman for Children's Dental Health.
