Name of Practice:
Chris Ward, DDS
DDS, University of Oklahoma
Why He Was Nominated
Respected for his hand skills, well-trained staff and high-quality care; numerous local dentists come to Dr. Ward for their own dental work.
Dr. Ward, who got into the profession by accident while helping a friend with dental-school lab work, is dedicated to personal care. “Unfortunately, our profession has evolved into a factory model,” he says. “I make sure I see one patient at a time.”
Exciting New Trend
Implants. “It’s rewarding to give people a beautiful smile that they don’t have to take out and put by their bed at night,” says Dr. Ward, who does his own cosmetic wax-ups. “It gives me the ability to control more variables when I do them myself.”
Something People Don't Know
He’s color-blind, which is sometimes challenging but often “extremely helpful,” such as when he’s shade matching.
