Meet the Doctors

DR. MASON B. KONKLE D.D.S. 

Dr. Mason B. Konkle is a native Texan, born in Austin. He studied at the Lyndon B. Johnson Science Academy and, after graduating high school, he continued his education at Brigham Young University where he earned his engineering degree. During his college years, Dr. Konkle developed an interest in dentistry after getting cosmetic dental treatment for his aesthetic issues. Right after getting this treatment, Dr. Konkle prepared for dental school.

Dr. Konkle and his wife, Dr. Jennifer Hatch-Konkle met when they were still in college. They got married and shortly, they moved to San Antonio, Texas. Here, they both studied dentistry at the University of Texas Health Science Center and received their Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degrees.

Dr. Konkle received training in intravenous sedation from the University of Southern California Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry. He is a member of the Arizona Dental Association, Central Arizona Dental Society, and American Dental Association. He also received the coveted James P. Vernetti Award in dental school, recognizing his skills in restorative dentistry.

When he’s not busy with his dental practice, Dr. Konkle spends his time with his wife and five kids. He also has plenty of other hobbies, too many that he couldn’t fit them all in his busy schedule!


Dr. HOUSTON TANNER D.D.S.

 
Dr. Tanner graduated Cum Laude from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology, and earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at Creighton University School of Dentistry, also graduating Cum Laude.  His wife, Rebecca, grew up as a patient in our practice, and her parents, siblings and even her grandmother have been patients in our practice for more than 30 years.

When it comes to clinical practice, Dr. Tanner values the best interests of his patients. It is his philosophy that each patient comes to us with his or her own questions, concerns, fears, beliefs, and needs. In his words, “I make sure my patient’s concerns are understood, their questions addressed, and their dental care delivered with care and understanding.”  Dr. Tanner enjoys all aspects of dentistry but has admitted to a fascination and a desire to continuously study implant placement and endodontics (root canals).  Dr. Tanner is a member of the International Dental Implant Association and is proud to have been awarded a mastership in the organization.

Outside of the office, Dr. Tanner enjoys any type of competitive activity including running, racquetball, pickleball, and other sports.  He enjoys spending time with his wife, Rebecca, their daughters Kyree and Lily, and their son Reece. As a family, they spend time together cheering at the kids’ respective sports functions, playing board games as a family, and heading out for ice cream (the kids’ favorite treat!). He also enjoys relaxing on a Saturday, building furniture, assembling computers, and tinkering with electronics. He is also fluent in Spanish, having served a two-year church mission in Concepcion, Chile.
