My full name is André Maurice Legault. It’s a French name; my father was French Canadian, but most people call me Andy and I consider myself a Texan. I am 67 years old. I grew up in Richardson, Texas with 4 sisters. My mom, age 96 (my father passed away in 2001), still lives in the house I grew up in with one of my sisters.
I graduated from Jesuit College Preparatory School in Dallas, The University of Texas in Austin with a Bachelor’s Degree, The University of Texas at Dallas with a Masters, ( I was working on a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology but changed when I decided to go To Dental School ) and Baylor College of Dentistry with DDS in 1981 ( Which is now called Texas A&M ) I have been practicing Dentistry for over 39 years. I owned my own practice in Hurst, Texas for 27 years then sold it to go into Corporate Dentistry. Then I worked for DentalOne, Coast Dental, (on the base at Fort Hood) Pacific Dental, Apex Dental Partners, and now Today Dental.
My wife Nancy was a blind date! We got married 43 years ago. She played Basketball and Volleyball at what was then NTSU but is now UNT with one of my sisters who introduced us. We have four grown children of whom we are enormously proud.
Lindsay, our oldest is 38 and is married to Daniel, a financial adviser. She is a Graphic Illustrator and Designer. They blessed us with 2 curly red-headed girls: Kyla 9 and Finley 7, and a sweet happy boy Steele who is 5. They live 5 blocks from my mom.

He and his wife, Emily, live in Midland, they blessed us with Lydia (5), who was born on my birthday, and Luke who is 3. Emily is a Civil Engineer and Bryan is a Chemical Engineer, Bryan works for the same Company that David does. Megan is 34, she is Bryan’s twin. She also lives in San Antonio and is a Dr. of Physical Therapy board certified in Orthopedics.
Nancy and I are big fans of the Cowboys, Mavericks, and Rangers! I got to go see the Cowboys when they used to play in the Cotton Bowl. As a matter of fact, I’ve watched all of these teams in all of their respective stadiums. I feel humbled and grateful that God has given me the gift of Dentistry. It gives me a vehicle with which to be a servant. I hope to ease your fears, make you comfortable, and be someone you can trust to improve your dental health.
