Dr. Devin Gneiting, DMD
Dr. Gneiting is excited to be back in Texas, as he considers himself an adopted Texan. It did not take long for Dr. Gneiting to fall in love with Texas and its people when he began working in Waco, TX shortly after graduating from dental school. With the ample fishing, hunting, and love of sports he feels right at home. Dr. Gneiting grew up raising grain and potatoes on an Idaho farm and is constantly looking for a way to satisfy his farming instincts.
For many people, going to the dentist can be very unsettling. Dr. Gneiting understands this and has treated many nervous patients before. He has been certified by the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation to perform sedation on patients that would otherwise not be able to get the dental work they need. He understands that most of the time the fear is caused by an event many years previous and that it is his job to regain the trust of the patient. In order to accomplish as much work as possible and reduce the number of visits to the dental office, Dr. Gneiting has paired his sedation training with advanced levels of root canal training, implant placement, and full mouth reconstruction in order to provide all the services needed in a single visit.
Dr. Gneiting's biggest achievement in life has been to convince his wife to marry him. Nicole is his best support and encourages him to accomplish his goals. Together they have three children.
Dr. Davi Williams, DMD
We are so happy to have Dr. Williams join our Killeen Dental family! Dr. Williams came to Texas as fast as he could! He is married to Carly and has 3 beautiful children. He enjoys biking, hiking and playing sports. He loves to cook and can't wait to get into smoking meats and the BBQ scene here! Dr. Williams is compassionate and genuinely cares about others. He is the perfect addition to our office.
When we asked Dr. Williams what accomplishments he was most proud of, he said, "I graduated from a high school that had a 50% graduation rate. Without the support and encouragement from my wife, I wouldn't have thought dental school was a possibility for me." Dr. Williams graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology and then got his DMD at Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine. In addition, he also comes from a military family.
Dr. Williams believes that improving someone's self-esteem by improving their smile is one of the most rewarding aspects of dentistry for him. "I know how much anxiety can be associated with dental visits, whether it is from a negative past experience, or the fear of judgment. Being able to ease people's anxiety by establishing positive dental experiences is my goal as a dentist and one of the things that makes me love my job! Being able to alleviate dental pain and anxiety for someone and improve their quality of life is incredibly rewarding!"

Dr. Hyatt has been fascinated by and passionate about dentistry since age
14. He is drawn to the science and artistry of dental work through the personal experiences of having braces, fillings, and a root canal when he was young.
