After first earning her bachelor’s of science degree in biology from the University of North Texas, Dr. Sarah Cantrell went on to earn her doctor of dental surgery from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio in 2008. She's been helping young smiles shine brightly ever since! A resident of Wylie, TX, she first spent four years working at Dentistry For Children in Mesquite, TX, sharing her dedicated work with children and teenagers alike before forming Cantrell Family Dentistry alongside her husband, Dr. Jon Cantrell. She's a member of several celebrated dental organizations, such as the American Dental Association, the North Texas Dental Society, Texas Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry.
As a children's general dentist first and foremost, Dr. Sarah loves that her job gives her the opportunity to help kids be excited and happy to come to the dentist instead of being afraid, effectively setting them on the path of optimal lifelong oral health. She also enjoys the unique and random qualities that children offer her, making every day different. She loves being able to laugh with them!
Dr. Sarah Cantrell is married to Dr. Jon Cantrell and they recently celebrated their 10th anniversary in May 2014. Their son, Colby was born in December 2012 and has kept them entertained and on their feet! They are enjoying this time watching him grow and learn new things every day! They have a dog named Frankie, a nine-year old dachshund, who they treat like their son as well! In her spare time, Dr. Sarah enjoys soccer, taking pictures, watching the Texas Rangers play, and anything that involves the outdoors. She and her husband enjoy volunteering in their free time for various mission organizations, providing much-needed dental services both locally and internationally.
Dr. Jonathan Cantrell first earned his bachelor's of science in biology from The University of North Texas before going on to earn his doctor of dental surgery from Baylor College of Dentistry in 2012. He knew right away that he wanted to have a dental practice of his own where he could work alongside his wife and help provide the people of his own community with dental health services and proper dental education. Therefore, he and his wife founded Cantrell Family Dentistry in March 2013. He is a member of the American Dental Association, the Texas Dental Association, North Texas Dental Society, and the American Academy of General Dentistry.
Besides simply loving the field of dentistry itself, Dr. Cantrell really enjoys having the opportunity to meet so many different people every day, as well as form solid, lasting relationships with patients from all walks of life.
After first meeting at North Texas and dating for four years, Dr. Jon Cantrell married Dr. Sarah Cantrell in May of 2004, and they welcomed their first child, Colby, who continues to brighten their lives every day, on December 21st, 2012. Dr. Cantrell loves watching him grow and learn and thoroughly enjoys the athleticism he is already exhibiting even at only 18 months old; what do you expect when his first word was “Ball”? When he's not working, Dr. Cantrell enjoys spending time with his family, cheering on the Texas Rangers, and participating in all sorts of outdoor activities, such as camping, hunting, fishing, hiking, and so much more!
Their family are active members of the First Baptist Church of Wylie and love being a part of this community.
