dr-crabtree-professionalMeet Dr. Crabtree

As a young man, Dr. Crabtree never knew a time when he didn’t aspire to be a dentist. With both a father and a grandfather who were dentists, he represents the third generation to practice dentistry. After receiving his undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University, he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. After more than thirty years of practicing dentistry, Dr. Crabtree has treated over 13,000 patients and has developed a reputation for his gentle chairside manner and sensitive yet honest approach to presenting treatment needs to patients.

For the past three years, Dr. Crabtree was named a Top Dentist by Houstonia magazine, as well as been recognized as a Top Dentist by USA Top Dentists.

Dr. Crabtree has been awarded both a Fellowship (FAGD), and a Mastership (MAGD) in the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD). The AGD is an organization that recognizes dentists who are dedicated to continuing their dental education beyond dental school. Dr. Crabtree is one of only four dentists practicing dentistry in Katy, TX who have been awarded the MAGD credential. He has received advanced training at the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry through Spear Education focusing on cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry. He has also received dental implant training from the Engel Institute.

Dr. Crabtree is a member of the American Dental Association, the Texas Dental Association, the Greater Houston Dental Society, the Academy of General Dentistry, the Texas Academy of General Dentistry, the Houston Academy of General Dentistry, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

He enjoys playing basketball, earning the nickname of “leRon” by the over-40’s basketball crowd. Dr. Crabtree is an avid Astros fan and enjoys being outdoors, whether he’s golfing, fishing, backpacking, or skiing. He and his wife Kristy are the parents of two grown children.  Read more about them in Crabtree Dental Beginnings.

 

dr-foust-professionalMeet Dr. Foust

Growing up, Dr. R.T. “Cade” Foust always excelled in science, art, and physiology. As a student at Texas A&M University, he shadowed several doctors and discovered his passion for dentistry when he realized that it beautifully incorporates each of his natural interests. He earned his bachelor’s degree in biomedical science from the College of Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M and went on to earn his doctor of dental surgery degree (DDS) from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. He has completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD); while earning his AEGD he focused on fine-tuning his skills in oral surgery.

Dr. Foust is a member of the American Dental Association, the Texas Dental Association, the Greater Houston Dental Society, the Academy of General Dentistry, the Texas Academy of General Dentistry, the Houston Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology. He is also trained and certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS).

Dr. Foust has a niche practice as it is unique for a general dentist to focus his practice on oral surgery, but this focus allows him to be particularly efficient in performing extractions. Dr. Foust has now completed over 1,700 intravenous (IV) sedation cases and has extracted more than 7,000 wisdom teeth. He maintains the philosophy that the doctor-patient relationship is not limited to regular business hours. That philosophy, along with his skill set and experience, establishes a foundation of trust and mutual respect with many of his patients.Dr. Foust is a firm believer that the most important work anyone can do is within their own home. He does his best to live by that, so when he’s not working he is usually spending time with his wife and four kids. He also enjoys boating, cooking, and playing racquetball.
