A Unique Dallas Dentist: Traditional Values, Patient-Centered, and Highly-Rated, Ranked, and Reviewed

Some patients think all dental offices are the same, not unlike buying the same Polo-branded shirt at Marshall’s, Kohl’s, Dillard’s, and Neiman’s. Well, this analogy is not applicable at all because dental services are performed by individuals, and individuals vary in their skills, their attention to detail, their interests, their foundational values and motivations, and more. Here at my practice, patients know who their dentist is going to be, as I am the only dentist caring for them. They also are aware of our being patient-centered, quality-oriented, value-conscious, and family-owned. They know all these things because they experience us and

Our Unique, Personal, and Educational Newsletters

We value our patients immensely.  We have worked since 1986 to create a very special dental practice.  My dental practice is very personal, very caring, and strives to be more than simply a place to receive dental services.  One of the ways we create uniqueness here is with our newsletters. Every month we provide newsletters to our patients and friends to inform them of my practice and to inform them of dentistry in general.  With these newsletters we maintain a relationship and we provide a value added service.  The articles may deal with changes within my practice, they may inform

Our Unique Dental Practice

Dentistry As a Job or As a Retirement Activity?  I started my career as a dentist in 1986. It is a career I had considered since I was four years old. The idea of becoming a dentist was always there. Beginning in high school, I took my academics quite seriously and did all I could to “pad” my resume to assure my admittance into dental school. On an October afternoon in 1981, I received in the mail my admittances to all three Texas dental schools to which I had applied. That day for me was one of my happiest; it

Looking for a Highly Reviewed, Highly Ranked, and Highly Rated Dallas Area Dentist?

Yes, we all want a dentist we can trust. However, in this current time, it can be so difficult to find a highly reviewed and highly rated dentist. In the past, dental offices used to be named after the dentist performing the care. This is what you will find with me; the name of my dental practice is “Mark A. Venincasa DDS.” Patients in my dental practice know what they are getting. They know we have no rotation of dentists. They know that I own my dental practice. They know that I am here pretty much 100% of the time

The Similarities of Jesus’ Acceptance in His Hometown and of Our Country’s Acceptance by Us

Yesterday at church, the Gospel of Mark was proclaimed (6:1-6 NABRE); we learned that Jesus went to His “native place,” He “taught in the synagogue,” He “astonished” His listeners, and the crowd did not understand His wisdom and deeds. Upon experiencing this, Jesus said, “A prophet is not without honor except in his native place and among his own kin and in his own house.” Jesus was “amazed at their lack of faith.” As I consider this during America’s Independence Day weekend, I can easily comment that the people in Jesus’ hometown did not really know, understand, accept, nor respond

Welcome Back to Our Resuming Dental Care!

We are so pleased to resume our dental care for you! Thank you so much for your trust, loyalty, and desire for returning to our office! It means a great deal to us that you are back! As many of you know, the governor had effectively shut down all dental offices for about six weeks. Even though dentists are considered “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers,” I did not feel very essential during that time. I wanted to contribute in some meaningful way. I wanted to help to keep the economy and people’s lives going. However, I understand the intent of the

Dr. Venincasa: A "2020 Texas Super Dentist"

We just humbly found out that Dr. Venincasa has been selected for the “2020 Texas Super Dentists” list, which will be published in the December 2020 issue of “Texas Monthly” magazine! This is the result of a “rigorous procedure conducted by the national research division of MSP Communications in Minneapolis, MN.” They have a “multi-step patented process [which] includes peer nominations, independent research, and a Blue Ribbon Panel review.” This is our first time to be recognized in this way. We are so grateful to our patients, who on their own time are kind enough to share their experience with

Behind the Surgical Mask: Another COVID-19 Story

I am a general dentist in Dallas, Texas. Because of this current COVID-19 Pandemic, Governor Greg Abbott has, by executive order, closed down dental offices across the state for over a month for all but the more emergent of circumstances that result in a patient’s inability to eat or that may cause an emergency room visit if a dentist does not intervene. Many other businesses and workers have been adversely affected as well all across the country. This is a very surreal position to find ourselves in. This came upon us very suddenly. We had no idea there would be

Living in a Material (Mask) World

Yes, the CDC would not be happy with this mask. It would not serve the purpose of preventing COVID-19 viral transmission; however, it did fit the title of my blog quite well. I simply could not resist! Pardon my distraction. . . Seriously, now, what is going on? This pandemic is like the “Twilight Zone,” this cannot be real, how does our government “shut down the country” like this? To some degree we have all felt this. To some degree we are managing this well. For others of us, this is tremendously difficult. This post is intended for those of
