The Stewart Center (formerly known as The Texas Center) was established in 2014. Co-founders, Dr. Hal Stewart and Dr. Craig Herre saw both young and established dentists who were frustrated with the current state of their practices. It was their desire to create a comprehensive course that would give doctors a logical, step by step approach to rehabilitating even the most broken-down dentition while prioritizing minimally invasive techniques and staying free of the limitations put on them by insurance companies.
Our goal at The Stewart Center is to provide an intimate learning setting for the dental professional who wants to:
- Profoundly impact their patients’ health in a significant way.
- The opportunity to practice in an insurance, third-party free environment.
- To learn state-of-the-art minimally invasive techniques.
- Acquire the confidence and ability to diagnose, treat, and restore failing dentitions in a systematic and predictable way, utilizing state-of-the-art minimally invasive techniques.
