Bill Gerlach, DDS
Meet Dr. Gerlach
My goal is to provide high-quality dentistry to all of my patients. Our office focuses on comprehensive care by providing cosmetic dentistry, full mouth restoration/reconstruction, sedation dentistry, TMJ treatment, and sleep apnea appliances. By working in conjunction with trusted specialists, we achieve the desired aesthetic and functional outcome each individual patient deserves.
From 1980-1983 I attended Northwestern University in Chicago and then attended Texas A&M College of Dentistry. My wife, Dr. Lynne Gerlach, and I graduated from Baylor College of Dentistry in 1987 and began practicing in Plano. I have continued my education with esteemed learning centers such as Spear, Dawson, and The Pankey Institute.
Continuing to be involved in organized dentistry in many capacities is important to me. I was elected President of the 9,100 member Texas Dental Association (concludes in May, 2019), an honor to which I am extraordinarily humbled. As such, I am also a member of the American Dental Association, the Dallas County Dental Society and the North Texas Dental Society. I was a co-founder of the Texas Dental Association Smiles Foundation, have been a delegate to the TDA House of Delegates for the past ten years, as well as a Delegate to the ADA House of Delegates.
I have been blessed to be recognized with many honors, including fellowships in the International College of Dentists, American College of Dentists, and the Academy of Dentistry International, as well as being voted D Magazine’s Best Dentist in Dallas every year since 2005, and Texas Monthly Super Dentist since 2006.
I have a long history of care for the underserved, initiating Collin County Children’s Clinic and the Plano Dental Clinic, as well as continuing my involvement in the Texas Missions of Mercy and Smiles Foundation.
I want to welcome you and your family to Prosper Dental Health. I look forward to working with you and providing exceptional dental care.
