Dr. Bill was born in Kansas City, Missouri and raised in East Dallas. He likes to say that he may not have been born in Texas, but he got here as soon as he could! Dr. Bill attended elementary, middle school, and high school in the Dallas Independent School District (DISD), and graduated in 1984 with honors from Skyline High School. In 1989, he graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Science in Economics, and in 1996, he received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from then Baylor College of Dentistry which is now Texas A&M College of Dentistry, making Dr. Bill a DOUBLE Aggie!
Dr. Bill credits his desire to become a dentist to Dr. Tom W. Watson who was Dr. Bill's dentist when he was a child. After graduation from dental school, Dr. Bill became an Associate Dentist in Dr. Tom's office in Mesquite, Texas where he practiced dentistry for 13 years. On August 5, 2009, Dr. Bill opened his state-of-the-art dental practice in Casa Linda Plaza located in East Dallas (near White Rock Lake) and named the dental practice, Whitley Family Dental. Dr. Bill’s dental practice incorporates the basic principles of oral health care with recent technological advances to provide general and cosmetic dentistry.
Dr. Bill is an active member of the American Dental Association, the Texas Dental Association, and the Dallas County Dental Society. He continues to seek opportunities to expand his knowledge of new dental techniques through continuing education classes.
Dr. Bill lives in East Dallas with his wife of 31 years, Tamara. Their son, Nick, is in his third year at Texas A&M University pursuing dual degrees in Political Science and Philosophy. The Whitleys are members of First Baptist Church of Dallas and enjoy traveling, reading, and cooking.
