Dr. Melissa Waters, DDS, BSN

Exceeding expectations with every smile.

Born and raised in the small, midwestern town of Hastings, Nebraska, Dr. Waters knew she had a strong passion for serving others and characteristically has a nurturing personality. She was torn between several pathways, but decided to pursue nursing as the window into the healthcare world. She was accepted into the nursing program at Creighton University, and worked for several years as a nurse in critical care nursing and pediatric nursing. She had always had an interest in the field of dentistry, and after her experience working as a sedation nurse for an oral surgeon’s office, she was encouraged to apply to dental school.

She attended the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry, in Lincoln NE where she graduated with honors. Pediatric dentistry was calling her name due to her love for working with the little ones, and was accepted into the pediatric residency program at Texas A&M Health Science Center Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, TX. During her residency, she received extensive training in sedation and hospital dentistry and medically complex/special healthcare needs for children, while working at Children’s Medical Center of Dallas and Texas Scottish Rite Hospital. She also is a diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and received her board certification in 2013.

Dr. Waters truly understands that practicing with compassion, understanding, and open communication is paramount to establish an ideal doctor-patient-parent relationship and to deliver the highest quality of care. This is what she strives to build her practice upon every single day.

Dr. Waters is married to her husband, Joe, and they have 3 small children, and a 15-year-old yorkie-chihuahua named Ernie. After living in coastal South Carolina for several years, they are overjoyed to make their way back to the DFW area and feel blessed to call Flower Mound their home.

When she is not helping others maintain healthy and beautiful smiles, she loves to spend time with her family hiking, playing board games, running, or you may even spot her paddle-boarding at Lake Grapevine.
