Dr. Jesse James Gonzalez

General Dentist

Dr. Jesse James Gonzalez is our newest addition to the Dental Group of Amarillo family. Dr. Gonzalez, a native to the Rio Grande Valley, grew up in the small town of Harlingen, Texas. It was here that he began to develop an interest with the dental profession. An interest that remained with him as he continued his education at Texas A&M University- Kingsville.

After completing his Bachelor’s degree in Bio-Medical Science at Texas A&M Kingsville, Dr. Gonzalez was accepted into the dental program at the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio School of Dentistry where he completed his dental training earning a Doctorate of Dental Surgery in May of 2020. While attending dental school, he was involved with the American Student Dental Association, Hispanic Student Dental Association, and a student member of the Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Gonzalez also used his free time to tutor first and second grade students in all aspects of clinical dentistry, as well as conduct and present various student research projects.

Through his dental training and experiences, Dr. Gonzalez has developed a dental philosophy focused on helping patients maintain their dentition in order to allow them to enjoy a happy and healthy lifestyle. He strives to develop treatment plans focused on the direct care patient’s need while also maintaining a friendly and welcoming environment for every patient. Every patient is assured they will only receive the highest grade of care under the guidance of Dr. Gonzalez.

Dr. Gonzalez is looking forward to his new home and becoming an active member of the Amarillo community. As an amateur triathlete, he enjoys practicing all three disciplines of swimming, cycling, and running. When he is not training for his next triathlon, Dr. Gonzalez enjoys hiking, fly fishing, indoor bouldering, and if there is live music nearby, you will most likely see him there!
