Dr. Kevin King, DDS
Born and raised in Muleshoe, Dr. King appreciates the panhandle and its people. Upon graduation from Muleshoe High School, Dr. King began his college career at Texas Tech University. It was there that Dr. King met his wife, Rachelle. She grew up in Tahoka, Texas and shared Dr. King’s ties to the area. Dr. King graduated in 1995 with a BS in Zoology and a minor in Chemistry.
After graduation, he began work with Xcel Energy, where he worked for six years. During two of these years, he also ventured into a spraying company, and along with his wife, was employed by the Methodist Church in Muleshoe as youth director. Rachelle is a licensed secondary science teacher, and she taught junior high science in Muleshoe. After years of debating, Dr. King decided to make a career change and pursue his lifelong goal of becoming a dentist.
In 2000, Dr. King was accepted into dental school. It was a life changing experience as he and Rachelle moved their two children, Kaleb and Ashley, to San Antonio where he would attend dental school at the University of Texas Health Science Center. In May 2005, Dr. King graduated from dental school with honors in teacher training. After graduation, Dr. King joined the practice of Dr. Moore. Together they formed what is now the Dental Group of Amarillo and have built a great family of patients over the years. Dr. King likes all types of sports and recreation including golf, fly-fishing, and hunting. Dr. King also has devoted his time to the United Way of Amarillo, serving as Cabinet Chair of the Healthcare Division, and as vice-chairman of the Boy Scout’s annual Good Scout Luncheon.
