At Huntsville Family Dental, we are so proud to be led by Dr. Pressley. Not only is he an incredibly passionate and talented dentist, but he makes coming to work every day an enjoyable experience and adds so much to the office’s atmosphere. Dr. Pressley spends so much time pouring out to his patients and getting to know them, so we wanted to allow all of you to get to know him a little better.
Dr. Pressley was born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina, and loves his home state! He attended the University of South Carolina (go Gamecocks!) for undergrad, where he received a track and field scholarship. While at USC, he was a USA Jr. National Champion in the 400-meter run in addition to earning All-American honors. After his undergraduate studies were complete, Dr. Pressley obtained his dental education at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. While he was at MUSC, he developed a passion for dental missions and completed trips to Venezuela and the Dominican Republic. Both of these trips were eye-opening and rewarding, and he felt honored to provide dental care to those for whom it was not easily accessible. Through these experiences, he developed a passion for helping others through high-quality dental care.
Although he is a South Carolinan at heart, Dr. Pressley loves Texas and got here as fast as possible! His approach to dentistry involves giving everyone a positive experience and putting his patients’ desires and treatment goals before anything else. He can successfully manage to stay on top of his patients’ immediate dental needs while creating a comprehensive plan for their long-term oral health. He also strives to constantly improve his dental abilities through continuing education programs and clinical experience. His skills have been developed in pediatric dentistry, oral surgery, prosthodontics, restorative implant dentistry, endodontics, and cosmetic dentistry.
If you are a patient who struggles with dental anxiety, Dr. Pressley is the perfect provider for you! Not only does he have a calming presence and make his patients feel welcome and at ease, but he also is licensed to provide non-IV conscious sedation. This tool can benefit nervous patients and give them a more positive experience.
When he is not serving patients at Huntsville Family Dental, Dr. Pressley has many hobbies. First and foremost, he loves spending time with his wife, Erica, and their two children, Cullen and Cali. In addition to this, he enjoys fitness, salsa dancing, and keeping up with USC Gamecock football in the Fall.
