New Techniques, Old Fashioned Care!
In Houston, TX, General Dentist, Dr. Zeb F. Poindexter III proudly continues his father’s legacy of rendering quality dental care to patients of all ages.
In 1956, the father, Dr. Poindexter Jr. graduated from the University of Texas Dental Branch at Houston, making him the first African-American to graduate Dental School in the State of Texas. In 1970 he commissioned John Chase Sr., the first African-American graduate from The University of Texas School of Architecture to design what was then known as “The Sunnyside Clinic”. Today the building still stands at the corner of Edfield and Cullen Boulevard as a testament to the fortitude and character of both men.

I have finally found the perfect dentist for me and my family's dental needs!!! Dr. Pointdexter's office was a relaxed and professional environment. The knowledge of the entire staff made my experience a less tense one and alleviated several of my worries. I was unaware that he covered so many procedures. In the future, this will definately be the dentist to take care of all of my family's dental needs.- A google user
"SInce being introduced to porcelain veneers in high school I've wanted them. Dr. Poindexter, along with Barry Nyugen and Kester Burnette gave great pointers about choosing the shade of my teeth. Since the veneer's cementation, I've received nothing but astonished glares and compliments. My diet is much healthier due to chewing conditions that come along with veneer maintenance, which has subsequently boosted my overall vitality! The wait for the preliminary wax "try-in" model to return from the lab was less than three weeks, then 10 business days followed to deliver and seat the final fabrication. My smile and entire lifestyle has enhanced dramatically!!" - Blake Poindexter
