    I’ve worked in the dental field since 1988. I love it and can’t imagine doing anything else…
    My 2 children are grown and on their own now. We love having family cookouts on the weekends. I love watching sports, especially baseball.

    Commitment and excellence = success.
    I’ve worked in the dental field over 30+ yrs and I fully enjoy the one on one contact with patients. I wouldn’t change a thing. Our patients are our #1 priority.
    I love traveling, especially cruising with my family. We usually cruise every year and sometimes twice a year. Also, I enjoy high school basketball and football, can’t wait until the season starts.

    My motto:   “treat others as you would like to be treated”.

    Started with the practice 1/30/1996

    Passion in dentistry is helping patients recover from their fear of dentistry, and teaching them how to keep their teeth for a lifetime.
    Born and raised in the Dallas area, and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else!

    Outside of work, I love watching my two teenagers play sports.

    Encouraging and educating people to achieve optimal dental health ranks high among my goals for our patients. Patients become friends and our office really cares about them.
    My husband and I are enjoying the “empty nest” after the blessing of raising three great children. We can catch what we want on TV and drink wine whenever- it’s awesome.

    Dr. Stutsman

    Raised in the East Texas town of Texarkana, Dr. Stutsman attended Stephen F. Austin State University after graduation from High School. Graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, he afterwards worked for The Dow Chemical Company for two years. In 1976, he applied for and was accepted into the Graduate Program at Baylor University in Waco where he received his Masters of Science degree in microbiology. Later, he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, Texas.

    His wife Karen and he have two daughters. The oldest is married and lives in Dallas to the delight of her parents. The youngest daughter will graduate from Texas A&M University, as did her sister. Ideally she will come back to Dallas to live, but we are comfortable in leaving that in God’s hands!

    An interesting side note of Dr. Stutsman is his past hobby performing standup comedy. The Colgate Company sponsored a nationwide search for “America’s Funniest Dentist”. He competed in Los Angeles and New York and won this award in 1992. He was active in the after dinner speaking scene until recently when this hobby was replaced with a cruiser motorcycle. He takes long and short trips around town and into surrounding states and absolutely enjoys riding, EXCEPT in the dog days of our Dallas summers.

  • Jackie Stockwell
    Jackie Stockwell

    Jackie Stockwell is a Registered Dental Assistant and started with the practice 7/1/1992.

    Born and raised in Texas. I started my dental career in 1982 and found that I loved assisting. Dentistry has evolved so much in these years it makes me proud to be a part of that.
    In 1992 I found my forever home here with Dr. Stutsman and with this last statement you must know that I am a pet lover. I have a Lhasa poo female named Jessie (picture it if you want). She also has a human sister.

    My interests include reading, hanging with friends and finding new recipes to try on family.
