Commitment to Quality Care for All

2 competent and caring doctors to serve your dental needs.

About Dr. Damon:

Locally born and raised in Amarillo, Dr. Clark Damon is excited to provide dental services to residents of his hometown.

In a commitment to quality, Dr. Damon has completed a Residency Program at Michael E DeBakey Veterans Affairs Hospital in Houston, TX. This program is only open to 2 dentists per year, and only very few general dentists pursue a residency after dental school. This is what makes Dr. Damon stand out among his colleagues. At the VA, Dr. Damon learned complex surgical procedures, got the ability to give IV Sedation, provided dental care in the operating room, spent 6 weeks performing general anesthesia for OR patients, and spent several months in the Dental Oncology Department at MD Anderson.

Dr. Damon’s dental areas of focus are on Permanent Dental Implants – Teeth in a Day, a brand new concept called Trefoil from Nobel Biocare, and providing same-day single unit dental implants. In addition, Dr. Damon is highly advanced in his dental laboratory knowledge. He is the overseer of all full arch restorations that we make for our patients and is responsible for all CAD/CAM products produced by our offices. Dr. Damon understands the trust patients put in him and this is the aspect of the patient relationship that keeps Dr. Damon excited about every procedure. Dr. Damon stays up to date with all latest dental implant literature and new dental implant technology. A few of Dr. Damon’s most recent interests are the utilization of full arch zirconia prosthesis, utilization of a PEEK (Polyether Ether Ketone) framework for full arch restorations, and  Nobel Biocare’s new Trefoil concept.

About Dr. Blankenship:

Another top dentist, Dr. Kari Blankenship has been with the Texas Dental Center for almost 2 years. Our patients are comfortable in her care. Dr. Blankenship has a very similar mindset to Dr. Damon’s approach to dentistry. Together they work as a team providing the same level of care, compassion, and dental treatment to our dental patients. Dr. Blankenship also has completed a General Practice Residency program. Being residency trained has helped Dr. Blankenship provide a higher level of care to our patients with IV Sedation needs, Dental Implant needs, and Full Mouth Restorations.

 These experiences have given Dr. Damon and Dr. Blankenship an expanded skill set, and excellent surgical, and medical knowledge. So whether you are 85 years old with a complex medical history, or 20 years old needing wisdom teeth removed, feel confident in the hands of our doctors.

Treatment Options

Your treatment begins with a comprehensive exam allowing our doctors to create a custom plan to improve your oral health and achieve your goals. We provide a full range of care for you and your family’s needs:

Implant Placement: Most implant procedures are done in our office with Dr. Damon. We place implants for a variety of reasons. We can replace a single tooth or for a whole arch of teeth. We use Nobel Biocare implants exclusively. This is the top and premier implant manufacturer in the USA. Our Amarillo office places about 300 dental implants per year. For the other 2 offices, Dr. Damon owns, he places an additional 300 implants per year for each office as well. At close to 1000 implants per year, feel confident that you are receiving excellent care.

Cosmetic Treatments: If you are unhappy with the look of your smile, we provide porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, dental bonding and orthodontic referral.

General Treatments: We provide basic treatments like fillings, dental cleanings, periodontal care, extractions, and root canal therapy.

Denture Services: with an in-house lab we are able to have a quick turnaround for denture fabrication. What takes most offices 2 months, can take us a few weeks. With the in-house lab, we can easily make same day repairs and relines on dentures, partials.

GeriatricWe reserve an appointment or two per day for a patient residing in a local nursing home. The goal is to expand dental care to a patient population that finds it hard to go to the dentist. Our practice also caters to patients in nursing homes. Our office is fully accessible by van; we have treatment rooms where we can provide care in the wheelchair if patients cannot be transferred. We work closely with social workers at the Amarillo area nursing homes to provide much needed dental care.

Medical- For patients who are about to undergo radiation treatments, chemotherapy, or beginning ZOMETA® treatment we provide dental consultations to resolve any problems prior to starting these treatment modalities. There are major side effects of these treatments and they can be mitigated by a simple dental consult.
