Coray Preece, DDS
Dr. Preece has been practicing dentistry since 2005 and joined Universal Dental in 2009. Originally from Rockwall, Dr. Preece attended Utah State University before receiving his dental degree from the VCU School of Dentistry. After this, he completed a two-year General Practice Residency at Wake Forest University and has undergone comprehensive advanced training in cosmetic, surgical, sedation, and pediatric dentistry. He also remains active in the local and national dental community as a member of the American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry.
As a dentist, Dr. Preece says his favorite thing is being able to help people meet their complicated oral health needs. Nothing makes him happier than seeing a patients face when they look in the mirror for the first time after a treatment.
Away from the office, Dr. Preece likes to stay busy spending time with his wife and 5 children. During his rare free moments, he enjoys playing soccer, snow skiing, and participating in dental outreach programs.
Anya Preece, DDS
Universal Dental has partnered with Dr. Anya Preece of Tiny Teeth Pediatric Dentistry, a board-certified pediatric dentist. Dr. Preece has been practicing since 2015. As a pediatric dentist, she has received extensive training in order to help meet the unique dental needs of children as they grow and develop. After graduating from the Baylor College of Dentistry, she went on to complete her specialty training at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry. In order to stay on top of the latest advancements in child dental care, she is currently an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
Her favorite part about coming to work each day is helping kids smile while she improves their oral health. She always takes extra time to make sure her patients are calm and comfortable as well as teach them helpful habits that will serve their smiles for a lifetime.
At home, much of her time is occupied by her husband and 5 beautiful children. When she can, she enjoys cooking, sewing, playing soccer, and finding great restaurants.
