Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
Dr. Langston was drawn to dentistry because he saw it would enable him to help a wide variety of people on a daily basis. With dental care, the results can often be immediate, dramatic, and lasting. And, due to the one-on-one nature of dentistry, Dr. Langston saw that it would allow him to form close relationships with each of his patients, which he says is extremely rewarding.
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
Dr. Langston attended Stephen F. Austin State University, and during his junior year, he was accepted by the Baylor College of Dentistry. After graduating in 1974, he began practicing and has lived in the Dallas area ever since. After spending five years in a traditional dental office, Dr. Langston became frustrated with the standard of orthodontic care. Treatment at that time involved the removal of teeth and the use of headgear. He began studying an orthopedic philosophy that originated in Europe, with treatment involving the expansion of the jaws and decompression of the jaw joints. His journey led him to research various treatments for chronic pain, including osteopathic and chiropractic manipulation, nutritional support, neural therapy, biocompatible dentistry, and craniosacral therapy at the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine. Today, Dr. Langston is a Distinguished Fellow of the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain as well as a Diplomate of the American Academy of Pain Management.
Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?
Dr. Langston has a daughter named Skyla, who is a hospice nurse, and she has an adorable daughter named Zoe. Dr. Langston likes to commune with nature, so he lives on three wooded acres and enjoys being around the wildlife in the area. When he can, he also likes to play golf.
