Five Years Teaching Orthodontics

Robert Allen, Jennifer Rand and Me!

Five years! I have been traveling to Rockwall every month for over 5 years now! In 2013 Robert Allen gave me the opportunity to assist in teaching his 12 session class for the Academy of GP Orthodontics in Rockwall. It has been a tremendous experience. We’ve all heard the saying “watch one, do one, teach one”. Well, being involved in teaching this class has really helped me to understand Differential Straight Wire (Tip Edge) Orthodontics. I’ve also meet a lot of great people. Dr. Allen’s approach to orthodontics has taught me a lot.

Welcome Dr. Vo!

Drs. McCrea and Vo

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Victoria Vo will be joining our practice in 2018. We are all very excited about her addition. I first met Dr. Vo when she began her two-year residency program in General Practice Dentistry at UT Health School of Dentistry at Houston where I teach two Fridays a month. The Program is affiliated with Memorial Hermann Hospital and TIRR (The Texas Institute of Research and Rehabilitation). I had the opportunity to work with her all during that two year period and have gotten to know her well.

Mission Trip to Laredo

Dr. McCrea and Esme his Great Assistant in Laredo

I’d like to thank Dr. Erik Garcia for keeping after me until I agreed to go on a mission trip with the Medical Missionaries of Devine Mercy. It was a wonderful experience and a chance to give back a little. Every November a  group from St. Laurence Catholic Church in Sugar Land makes their annual trip to Laredo and in cooperation with San Luis Rey Church and Catholic Charities provides dental, vision and medical services for those in need in Laredo.

Two Years of Offering Dental Implants!

Dr. Mike McCracken and Dr. McCrea

This week marks the second anniversary of placing my very first dental implant. In November 2014 I went to Bessemer Alabama for a week of training at the Alabama Implant Education Institute. The course focused on protocols for safe, successful implant placement. While there, I had the opportunity to place multiple implants under the supervision of experienced doctors.
