Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
Although Dr. Drennan had no family members or close family friends who were medical professionals while he was growing up, he still knew he wanted to be a healthcare provider by the time he enrolled at Texas Christian University. In fact, one of the reasons he was excited to attend TCU was because of their highly regarded pre-medical curriculum! During his college years, he was encouraged by his advisors to research different options in healthcare, and he met various doctors and dentists as a result. He discovered over time that the dentists he talked with were very excited about their work and especially enjoyed interacting with patients on a personal level. He chose dentistry in the end, and even after 40 years, he still enjoys going to the dental office every day.
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
Dr. Drennan attended Texas Christian University, where he played football and earned Academic All-American honors as a defensive back in 1974. Following graduation, he pursued his Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Texas Dental School at San Antonio Health Science Center. After graduating in 1979, Dr. Drennan returned to Fort Worth to begin his dental career and develop a family dental office. He is grateful every day for the many individuals who have helped him along the way!
