Waco Family Dentistry began in 1975 when Dr. Steven Little left the Air Force and moved back to his hometown in Waco, TX. During his years of solo practice, he focused on building a practice based on comprehensive care- treating the whole patient instead of just treating emergencies.

Over the years the practice grew, and in 2005, Dr. Zachary Schwab joined the practice. Having practiced in Fort Worth for a couple of years as an associate for different Dentists, Dr. Schwab was ready to settle into a practice long term. Dr. Little’s philosophy of comprehensive care is what drew Dr. Schwab an hour and a half south to Waco and it’s where his family has called home since!

As new advances in technology and techniques have emerged, the practice has evolved adding digital x-rays, laser therapies to better improve our patients’ periodontal health and Sleep Apnea therapy for those who have a sleep breathing disorder and can’t tolerate a CPAP.

While the practice has always been family oriented, that message became lost over time, so in 2016 Dr. Schwab changed the name of the practice to Waco Family Dentistry to emphasize our philosophy of treating families, not just adults. Dr. Little is proud that he has spent his career taking care of generations of Wacoans, and Dr. Schwab strives to continue with that focus. It is our reward and our privilege to see families and kids grow and transform, or to have patients that we saw as kids bring their kids in!

For our existing patients, we absolutely appreciate your patronage over the last 40 years, and for those who are considering us, we hope you give us the chance to provide your family with happy healthy smiles for years to come!
