One of Houston's premier cosmetic dentists, Dr. Zeb F. Poindexter III proudly continues the legacy of providing exquisite comprehensive dental care shared by him and his father. In 1956, after serving as a second lieutenant in the Air Force Reserves and left active duty with the rank of captain, the late Dr. Zeb F. Poindexter Jr. became celebrated as the first African-American graduate of the University of Texas Dental Branch in Houston. Shortly after his graduation, he built a fully comprehensive care clinic that treated as many as 30 patients a day. Today Poindexter Dental, Inc. is headed by his successor Dr. Zeb F. Poindexter III, a graduate of the University of Texas Dental Branch (making them the first African-American father/son duo to do so). He is distinguished as one of Houston's Health Care Heroes, certified in a multitude of dental specialties, and is a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry.
