Marisol Trautmann, DDS, MS or Bill Gerlach, DDS | Prosper TX Dentist
Meet Dr. Trautmann | Dentist Prosper TX
After 26 years of practicing dentistry, I still wake up every day with renewed commitment to tackle the day and aspiration to change someone’s life. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to practice my passion and my career– I love what I do.
I have had the pleasure of calling Prosper my home for the last eleven years, and with the help of this wonderful community, my three sons are growing into respectable young men.
To explain a little bit about myself, I pursued my specialty degree in Prosthodontics at Ohio State University, and I have been practicing since 1997. Prosthodontics is the dental profession pertaining to the diagnosis, treatment planning, rehabilitation, and maintenance of the oral function, comfort, and appearance of healthy teeth. I treat patients with clinical conditions associated with missing or deficient teeth and/or oral and maxillofacial tissues using biocompatible substitutes. I am also a lifelong learner and I am always looking for opportunities to improve my skills through further training on the best techniques to treat the most common and the most complicated oral conditions.
It might seem like my job is to restore teeth with crowns and fillings and replace missing teeth, but that is not the way I approach my profession. I aim to develop candid and sincere relationships with my patients, to relieve them from pain, to change their smiles, and to improve their lives. I help patients build confidence for interviews and new jobs, and I assist them in preparing for wedding pictures and graduations. I enjoy hearing tooth fairy stories when baby teeth give way to permanent teeth, and I give grandmothers and grandfathers their speech back so they can read stories to their grandchildren. I also recommend sleep apnea treatments so patients can sleep better and function optimally. Most of all, however, I guide patients in understanding their dental challenges and work with them to achieve oral health so they can ultimately feel proud of their teeth. I am looking forward to offering this kind of relationship and service to all of Prosper.
Our practice philosophy at Prosper Dental Health is totally patient oriented, focusing on your health and your beautiful smile. They say that the eyes are windows to your soul. I would add that your beautiful smile is a window to your overall health. I enjoy offering you the latest technology to help you have a wonderful experience at our dental office. I also hold a sedation license so I can make you feel comfortable and at ease during your treatment.
Let me welcome you to Prosper Dental Health. I hope you can come soon to enjoy a rewarding dental experience. I look forward to treating you and your family.
