A native of Houston, Dr. Mitchmore received his doctorate from the University of Texas in Houston and has been honored to be named a Master of the Academy of General Dentistry based on his continuing postgraduate education. He has also won a prestigious spot in Houston’s Top Docs since 2003 and he lectures to other dentists all over the country.
One of Dr. Mitchmore’s greatest delights comes from helping people find their innersmile. He knows there is more to dentistry than simply fixing teeth – when he isn’t giving a superbly healthy smile to his patients, he is giving a smile to his community.
He volunteers for Give Back a Smile, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry’s project to restore the broken and damaged teeth of survivors of domestic violence. He spent many years on the board of directors for Bering Omega Community Services, a service that provides compassionate healthcare and social services to people living with HIV/AIDS. He is always getting involved in the idea of helping people and giving something back to his beloved community. When Dr. Mitchmore gets excited about a project, everyone around him feels it and gets passionate about giving back too. In fact, in 2008 he was appointed to the Board of Trustees of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Charitable Foundation and holds an Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) Mastership.
Dr. Mitchmore is certified in IV sedation and has advanced dental education from the Pankey Institute in Key Biscayne, the Center for Professional Development in Scottsdale, Arizona, The Dawson Academy of St. Petersburg, Florida and is one of only 700 doctors worldwide to have completed the full Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Cosmetic Studies (LVI) curriculum. That is education you can trust.
It’s been a long and winding path to become one of the nation’s finest cosmetic dentists for Dr. Mitchmore. It all started in February 1978 just a few days after graduating ½ year early from The University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston Dental Branch.
That’s when Dr. Mitchmore purchased his first dental office building on Hwy 787 in the East Texas sawmill town of Cleveland, 45 miles north of Houston. The office building was built in the 1960’s and even had a “colored” waiting room in the rear. This always served as a reminder to the importance of progress for Dr. Mitchmore.
Shortly after starting his practice he moved his residence to Cleveland and became involved in all of the community organizations and was a recognized leader. He took leadership roles serving as President of The Rotary Club, Chairman of the Cleveland Regional Medical Center, elected three terms as Cleveland City Councilman, director for the library, chamber of commerce, Cleveland Bank & Trust, Tri-County Mental Health Mental Retardation, Episcopal Church, a Cub master, and more. Community service has always been a huge priority for Dr. Mitchmore.

“I would rate my visit with Dr. Mitchmore as the best it could be. I plan on telling everyone I know to go see him – and I don’t say this lightly. I look forward to working with him to improve my dental health and I urge you to do the same.” - Daniela Reboa
