We are more then just a Temple, TX Dentist Office

Dr. Jason Megens

About Me

I want to first thank you for spending time on our web site and learning about the Legacy Dental team. I believe that as you read about us here and then after you meet us in person at our Temple TX Dentist Office, you will be confident that my staff and I are caring advocates for our patients. You will also see that we really are enthusiastic and proud to be dental care providers.

I believe people do their best when they enjoy something they do, so I have always made dentistry a joy and a passion for me. I work diligently to keep abreast of the latest research and education, especially in the areas of cosmetic dentistry and facial and jaw pain. It has been my pride that I could advance my dental training at the renowned Dawson Academy, the esteemed Spear Education Center, and attend residency with the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain.

Over the last 13 years, since earning a Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine, I developed the low stress, minimal pain approach to dentistry that I use in my dental practice here in Temple, TX

I look forward to meeting you soon!

Interests

In addition to loving dentistry, I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter, playing with my two dogs, dining on delicious foods of different ethnicities, playing video games and challenging my mind with the intricacies of quantum physics.
