Orange, TX Dentist
Dr. Joshua Bear
Dr. Joshua Bear is a born and raised Texan. He values southern hospitality as well as family, and teamwork. Much of his values stem from his experience playing highschool and then later college football for Morningside College. After playing on Morningside’s Championship team he transferred to Texas Tech University to pursue further education to prepare him for Dental School. Dr. Bear decided to attend a dental mission trip in underserved communities in Mexico, which solidified his desire to provide care and dental education to his fellow Texans. Dr. Bear graduated from the University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston where he served on a dental van in the surrounding areas of Orange, TX and knew where he wanted to be. He takes pride in helping patients overcome their dental fear and trauma through in-depth dental education and always listening to his patient’s concerns. His #1 rule for the office is NO PAIN and he will do everything in his power to make sure you have a pleasant experience.
