Kirk Bond, DDS
Meet Dr. Bond | Dentist Temple TX
I completed my undergraduate studies at Austin College and then earned my DDS from Baylor College of Dentistry in 1995. My wife and I moved to Temple for advanced training at the Olin E. Teague Veteran’s Affairs Hospital in 1995. I began private practice in 1996 and helped form the Cox/Bond Dental Group in 1999.
I have extensive training in esthetic, implant, and full-mouth reconstructive dentistry and love to provide these dramatic transformation therapies. In recent years, I have become passionate about dentistry’s ability to impact overall health. One way relates to airway (how we breathe) and its impact on dental diseases and various medical conditions. We evaluate this in 3 groups including children, which we seek prevention for various related lifelong medical challenges; young adults which can manifest as poor sleep, TMJ dysfunction symptoms and tooth wear; and in our adult population with the myriad of health issues that come with sleep disturbed breathing or sleep apnea diagnosed by our medical colleagues.
My professional memberships include the following: American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, Central Texas Dental Society, Academy of General Dentistry, Texas Academy of General Dentistry, Christian Medical and Dental Associations, International Congress of Oral Implantologists, International College of Dentists, and the Spear Study Club.
I am honored to serve as Visiting Faculty at Spear Education in Scottsdale, AZ. In addition, I earned my Fellowship with the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD) in 2004, my Fellowship with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (FICOI) in 2013 and my Fellowship with the International College of Dentists in 2017.
My wife, Leanna, and I have two daughters, Annalise and Sarah Kate. We worship and serve at Temple Bible Church. Civic functions include serving in Rotary International since 1996 and I take part in the Temple South Club. Over the years my board services have included Hope Pregnancy Centers of Central Texas, Central Texas Christian School, and the Temple Bible Deacon Board. In my free time, I enjoy technology, photography, reading and sailing, but in reality I spend a fair amount of my free time as an eternal student of dentistry.
