Dr. Travis Campbell, has been a practicing dentist since 2009, after graduating from Baylor University in Waco, Texas (2005) and then Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, Texas.
Yes, Dr. Campbell is a born and bred Texan, and proud of it! But even more notable … dentistry simply runs through his veins. He announced he “wanted to be a dentist” after his first dental visit at the age of three, and never once changed his goal. Today, dentistry remains a passion. He still loves the clinical side of treating patients, yet early on he developed a similar passion for the business end of running a practice. In fact, before he graduated from dental school, he built a vision and business plan for 380 Family Dentistry in Prosper, Texas. At the time, Prosper was a very tiny community well north of Dallas. There were cattle living across the highway from that first office!
Over the ensuing years, he has built that single dentist practice to its current position as one of the top one percent in the country. Through his experiences, he cultivated a personal “mission” to try and help other dentists avoid the typical pitfalls to become highly successful business owners.
Dr. Campbell is an author, trainer, speaker at dental conferences, a contributor to various online dental communities, and dental coach/consultant. He has been dubbed “The Practice Whisperer”, which became the title of his first book as released in 2019. Ever an entrepreneur, Dr. Campbell purchased a second dental practice, in Garland, Texas in the fall of 2019.
Having gained a reputation as an expert in the complex area of dental insurance, Dr. Campbell’s new “moniker” is “The Dental Insurance Guy!” From understanding insurance to developing strategies to accelerate practice growth, Dr. Campbell delivers practical, actionable content that dentists and team members can use immediately. He dispels many of the myths and misinformation around today’s dental insurance policies and explains how to navigate the complexities of being an exceptional dentist, business owner, and leader while still having a life outside of work.
Dr. Campbell lives in Prosper, Texas with his wife and two young children.
