Dr. Clay Keith is a native of historic Jefferson, Texas, where he graduated salutatorian of his class in 1992. He received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biomedical Science from Texas A&M University (class of ’96). He attended Baylor College of Dentistry and earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree in 2001.
After receiving his license, he returned to East Texas to practice dentistry with Dr. John C. Watkins. He was very fortunate to be able to start his career working beside an amazing clinician. In 2007, Dr. Paul Denson joined the practice, and this was one of the best decisions he ever made: to partner with someone who strived for the same practice goals and philosophy as him.
In 2001, they were blessed to open their current state-of-the-art facility for patients to enjoy in Lindale, TX. Not just for patients who reside in Lindale, but for those coming from the surrounding communities now and for years to come!
Professionally, Dr. Keith maintains memberships in the American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, Smith County Dental Society, Southwest Prosthodontic Society, International Congress of Oral Implantologists, and American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
In 2005, he began to study the science of implant dentistry at the Misch International Implant Institute in Detroit, Michigan. The course was taught by Dr. Carl Misch, a true pioneer of implant dentistry. In 2009, Dr. Keith was honored to receive the prestigious Fellowship Award from the International Congress of Oral Implant Dentistry.
Dr. Keith’s philosophy for patient care has always been very straightforward: to provide his patients with enough information to make good decisions concerning their dental health. He believes in always being honest, gentle, never judgmental, extensively compassionate, and consistently understanding. Many times, his patients will hear him say, “If you were my family member, this is what I would recommend.” That feeling has always guided him to make the right decisions concerning patient care. All patients bring a different set of circumstances that make them unique. Dr. Keith strives to get to know his patients on a personal level before tailoring a treatment plan to meet their needs.
Dr. Keith prides himself on continuing education to ensure that he and his staff are up to date with the best techniques to offer their patients. His hobbies include spending quality time with family, traveling to sporting events, playing golf, and duck hunting.

I smile more often now because it feels natural. Being treated with dental implants is probably as close to natural teeth as I can get.
