David Bishop funded his undergraduate degree in chemistry from Texas Tech in Lubbock, Texas mowing lawns, hauling hay, and construction work. Dr. Bishop received his doctorate of dental surgery from the University of Texas Health Science Center of San Antonio Dental School in 1983, ranked the number one dental school in the nation by U.S. News and World Report. After graduating from dental school, Dr. Bishop and his wife, Bonnie moved to Allen, when the population was 9,000. Their children, Olivia and Weston, were born and raised in Allen. Dr. Bishop served 6 years on the city council, when the population was around 30,000, and actively participated in Allen’s early development. Dr. Bishop still enjoys playing improvisational piano in a praise band at Allen Heights Baptist Church, where he and his family have been members since 1983.
Dr. Bishop comes from a long line of carpenters and used these skills to design and build from the ground up his dental office on Greenville Avenue along with his father. Over the years, the little office grew as did the city of Allen. The Dentist of Allen’s new 6,500-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility is located on the corner of Exchange Parkway and Highway 75. His woodworking skills can be viewed in the reception area of the office as he built the timber frame out of rough cut cypress by hand. It is truly a work of art.
Dr. Bishop has continued to develop the practice to introduce newly educated as well as seasoned dental skills to provide patient care mastered from time tested to new innovative approaches best suited to the patient’s needs. The Dentist of Allen has evolved into one of the premier cosmetic and family practices in the area. Dr. Bishop’s continuing education fine tunes the finesse required to deliver the best dental care year after year. Dr. Bishop also enjoys fly fishing, bicycle riding, and spending time with his family. He looks forward to visits from his children and has recently been promoted to grandfather with the arrival of Olivia's first born son, Gabriel.
Dr. Bishop enjoys both carpentry & dentistry because of the mastery required hand work, but through changing smiles he has found his true passion for changing lives by improving the overall health and confidence of his patients. He celebrates the magnificent team that he works with every day.
