Tara Stokes

My name is Dr. Tara Stokes. I have been practicing general dentistry for 28 yrs. My husband and I moved to San Antonio in 1999. We have fallen in love with the city and its rich culture. I have been blessed with two sons that keep me very busy when I am not in the office. I attended University of Texas Dental Branch in Houston, TX. 

I have had the opportunity in my career to spend a lot of time working with kids, elderly and special-needs patients. I consider myself a very patient doctor and willing to take on the challenge of the biggest coward. I love what I do and my staff and I are determined to make your dental experience a pleasant one.
