Our patients are the primary reason we exist.

Dentistry is a healing arts profession and through treating dental disease, it is our desire to transform the health and the quality of life of the patients we treat. We consider it a privilege to provide the highest quality dental care with compassion and respect while delivering meticulous, uncompromising, state-of-the-art dental treatment. Our goal is to serve every patient as Jesus served, for it is by His power and grace that we are allowed to practice this profession. Our hope is that every person will see the love of Jesus Christ, through the way we treat our patients and each other, which is our ultimate vision.
Dr. Donald is a Master of The Academy of General Dentistry (MAGD) and has been in full-time private practice in his hometown of Louisville, MS since July of 1989, where he resides with his wife, Sandy.
Dr. Donald has maintained his philosophy that patients should be able to receive their dental care without having to travel out of town. Because of this philosophy, Dr. Donald has achieved his Fellowship and Mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry in which he had to record over 1200 hours of continuing education in all aspects of dentistry. Less than 1% of general dentists achieve Mastership status.
Dr. Donald has always felt it to be important that he maintain his skills in clinical dentistry but also improve his skills in technology that will help in the diagnosis and treatment of his patients. He has added digital radiographs and cone beam technology to help diagnose dental disease. He has also added a high definition scanner to take impressions for crowns, which is extremely accurate, but also improves patient comfort.

We drive 30 minutes to see Dr. Donald and his staff. They are friendly and are always hospitable to my family. They treat my children like their own and see to each of us with a level of care like none other. Jessica is always so friendly to welcome into the office and nice to remind us of our upcoming appointments. Lauren and Allison take great care of us for those routine cleanings. Dr. Donald also let me know what is going on and what might be needed to keep my teeth as healthy as can be. A+ service.
