Meet Our Cosmetic Dentist
Dr. Wayde Fawcett DDS
Dr. Fawcett has been named as a “Top Houston Dentist” by H Texas Magazine every year since 2003. He is a native Houstonian and a graduate of the University of Texas Austin (1980) and the University of Texas Dental School in Houston (1984). He has been practicing in his hometown, Houston, TX, since 1984 and has continued to help raise the standards for quality dental care ever since.
From dental implants and porcelain veneers to periodontal treatment and routine oral care, Dr. Fawcett’s passion for dentistry has inspired him to actively support his profession in leadership roles. Respected by his colleagues for his knowledge and expertise, he has proudly served on the Board of Directors for the Academy of General Dentistry, at the local and at the State level, and was President of the Houston chapter in 2012. Additionally, he has served on both the Peer Review and Judicial Committees for the Greater Houston Dental Society.
When patients choose Dr. Fawcett for their dental care, they benefit from his more than 30 years of experience, outstanding professional accomplishments, and proven expertise. In 2003, Dr. Fawcett earned a Fellowship in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) and in 2007 was among 157 dentists to be honored with the title “Master of the Academy of General Dentistry (MAGD)”, which is considered to be one of the most respected designations in the profession. It is estimated that less than one percent of dentists in the United States earn MAGD status, due to the rigorous requirements that must be met for candidacy. To become eligible for Mastership status, candidates must complete at least 1,110 hours of continuing education coursework that spans across 16 areas of dentistry. These expansive courses incorporate hands-on learning and valuable experience in a variety of dental specialties, which have helped Dr. Fawcett reach an elite level of expertise. The Mastership process concludes with a comprehensive review by the AGD Council on Dental Education to ensure each applicant possesses skills that meet the highest standards in dental treatment, patient care, and ethics.
After becoming a MAGD, Dr. Fawcett was further recognized by the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) in 2015 with the Lifelong Learning and Service Recognition (LLSR). This prestigious accolade is presented to previous AGD Mastership recipients who complete an additional 500 hours of continuing education and demonstrate a strong dedication to continued education, charitable service, and the organized dental community.
Each year Dr. Fawcett participates in over 50 hours of continuing education. These courses, which maintain his Mastership status, allow him to stay up-to-date on the latest general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry techniques available. He is a firm believer in keeping up with advances in technology and research and feels his clients “deserve nothing less than the best care I can possibly give them.”
Clients of Dr. Fawcett appreciate the personal attention, warmth and genuine concern he shows each individual. His fun-loving personality and compassionate chair-side manner have nurtured long-lasting relationships and loyal patients from all over the world.
In his leisure time, Dr. Fawcett enjoys cycling, hiking, traveling and spending time with his wife, Farhana, and two daughters, Amira and Shayna.
We were thrilled that you had gone out of your way to make us feel special with your attention. A doctor that’s never too busy for his patients is a rare gem indeed!
