Commitment to Quality Care for All
About Dr. Gordon Clark Damon
Locally born and raised in Amarillo, Dr. Gordon Clark Damon is excited to provide dental services to residents of his home town. Dr. Gordon Damon graduated from Amarillo High, obtained his bachelors in Biology with Chemistry minor from Baylor University, and obtained his DDS from the University of Texas Dental Branch - Houston.
In a commitment to quality, Dr. Gordon Clark 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 is married to Dr. Carla Damon, a pediatric dentist. Together, they have 2 children - Tripp and Isla, and 2 Golden Retriever Rescues - Leah and Peter. In his spare time, Dr. Damon enjoys spending time with his family, fly fishing, and enjoys a glass of red wine! Favorite travel spots: Punta Mita, Rosemary Beach, and Napa Valley.
