Dr. Melissa Rozas, DDS

Dr. Rozas knew as a kid that she wanted to be a dentist. After all, she visited her local one often in her younger years. Throughout her childhood, she had three sets of braces, a wisdom teeth extraction, and several cavities. She even had her front teeth pulled when she was three! Still, those experiences taught her the importance of oral health and dental hygiene. From there, she decided that she would do what her dentist had done for other kids.

After getting her degree in Biomedical Science at Texas A&M University, Dr. Rozas began her dental studies in earnest. She ultimately earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Texas School of Dentistry in Houston. At the same time, her pediatric dental residency was done in Houston’s UT/Herman. She later got her certification in Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS).

Of course, her dental achievements didn’t stop once school ended. Today, Dr. Rozas is also a member of the American Dental Association and the Texas Dental Association. Furthermore, she’s the current co-chairman of the Greater Dallas Pediatric Dental Society. The good doctor counts herself a Fellow in the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, too.

Dr. Rozas likes to spend time with her family when she’s not in the office. That group includes her husband of thirty years, her college-aged son, and her high-schooler daughter. Together, they tend to enjoy sports like snow skiing and surfing, as well as Dallas Mavericks basketball games.

Terra Compton, DMD

Dr. Compton discovered her passion for dentistry in adolescence. At that time, she received orthodontic care that significantly boosted her quality of life. She has loved her orthodontist ever since, taking an active interest in what the dental field could do. In learning more about the latter, she then considered it a possible career. The rest, as they say, is history – Dr. Compton was drawn to pediatric dentistry in dental school, as it dovetailed with her love of children.

Once she earned an undergrad degree at Oklahoma State University, Dr. Compton pursued her dental education. That started with her Doctor of Dental Medicine from the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health. Later, she finished her Pediatric Dentistry Residency at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC. Dr. Compton even took the time to get a master’s in public health.

As she’s practiced professionally, Dr. Compton has earned further accolades. For instance, she’s now PALS certified and a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Similarly, her affiliations include membership in the American Dental Association and the Texas Dental Association. Dr. Compton is also a Greater Dallas Pediatric Dental Study Club member.

Though raised in Oklahoma, Dr. Compton now lives in Dallas with her two terrific daughters – Sylvie and Lucia. When she isn’t busy at the office, you’ll find her volunteering with their local Girl Scout troop. Otherwise, her hobbies include sewing, reading, working out, and trying new restaurants.

What level of education is required to be a pediatric dentist?

As you may already know, becoming a pediatric dentist requires years and years of formal education as well as countless hours of ongoing training. That all starts with a bachelor’s degree, which is typically in a major that’s heavy in science and math. Then, the aspiring dentist must be accepted to one of 67 accredited dental schools in the U.S. After three years of classroom and hands-on training, they must study pediatric dentistry specifically. Of course, their educational journey never truly ends. Dr. Rozas, for example, is now Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and a Fellow in the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.

How can I find a female dentist?

Today, more than 50% of dental school students are female. Furthermore, about 33% of all practicing dentists are female as well! So, if your child prefers a female pediatric dentist, there’s a good chance that there is a provider in your area.

If you’re in or around the Las Colinas area, you’ll be happy to hear that both of our dentists are female. Furthermore, many of our support team members – from our treatment coordinators to our dental assistants – are female.

How do I get emergency dental care for my child?

If your child has knocked out a tooth, one of their restorations is loose, or they are experiencing any abnormal dental symptoms, we strongly recommend calling us right away. That way, we can learn all about their situation, schedule a time for them to come in for treatment, and guide you through what to do until you both arrive at our office.

Note: if your child has dislocated their jaw, is having trouble breathing, or is bleeding uncontrollably, then head to the ER right away so they can get the medical attention they need. After they’ve been treated and discharged, you can bring them in for a same-day appointment with one of our pediatric dentists.
