Meet the Team

Dr. Gene Gress - Dentist

My name is Gene Gress, and I am a native Texan, but my wife and I moved to Glade Hill, VA in 2019. I joined the Crooked Road practice in 2023. I received my BS degree from Texas A&M University, my DDS degree from Baylor College of Dentistry, and, during Covid, my MS degree in Medical Nutrition. I am an avid college sports fan and enjoy exercising, music, and movies. My wife, Rachel, and I have a cat, Sarita, who occupies most of our at-home time. We enjoy looking at all the gorgeous wildlife from the deck when the weather allows.

While in Texas, I owned and ran several dental offices throughout the state. I have enjoyed helping all my patients from ages six months to 101. I have experience in most dental treatment areas, and I look forward to incorporating a nutritional aspect into the practice for those interested. I have over 40 years of experience and am committed to providing outstanding dentistry to all patients.
