Why Did You Want to Become a Dentist?

“I was very good at building and fixing things when I was about 10 years old. My mom wanted me to be a veterinarian, so I attended Northside Health Careers High School. As the years went by, I frequently made things out of wood in my free time, and I liked that dentistry would give me the chance to work with my hands every day. My next-door neighbor was like a grandma to me, and her son was a dentist, and she was the one who encouraged me to pursue dentistry.”

Study Dentistry?

Dr. Mooney obtained a bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Texas at San Antonio before going on to receive his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.
