Dr. Travis Watson, DDS - Farmington Cosmetic Dentist
I grew up in western Nebraska and bleed Cornhusker red. If you would have asked me when I was young what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would have told you an architect, an attorney, or a teacher. I never would have said dentist. In college while working on a degree in secondary education, I worked in a hospital as a radiology aide and learned to love the medical professions. After a year of student teaching in Ohio, I realized teaching was not for me. I spent six years in undergrad trying to determine just what it was I wanted to do for a career. During this time I met my wife and we got married in July of 2001. I went to night school in order to work days and put her through Dental Hygiene school. I was introduced to dentistry through her family. After many hours of research and shadowing I decided on dentistry as my major. I was accepted and spent four years at the University of Nebraska’s College of Dentistry and graduated May 2008.
I love all sports, except for soccer, and enjoy spending time with my family and my two dogs.
I grew up in Farmington, New Mexico playing baseball, basketball, and enjoying all of the outdoor activities the Four Corners has to offer. During my childhood, I also spent a fair amount of time watching my father care for and treat patients in his family practice clinic. It was witnessing his compassion and ability to help his patients that instilled my desire to serve others. I went to the University of New Mexico to pursue a degree that would allow me to enter the field of healthcare. While I was working on my biology degree, I had an opportunity to shadow a dentist, which is when I discovered my passion for dentistry. My wife and I moved to Omaha, Nebraska where we attended Creighton University and I earned my doctorate of dental surgery. Upon graduation, we decided to return to the beautiful Four Corners to be closer to family, enjoy the wonderful outdoors, and serve our community.
