Dr. Blackwell is originally from Garland, Texas and completed his undergraduate degree in Advertising at The University of Texas at Austin. While in college he became greatly interested in the field of dentistry and soon after completed his dental degree from Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, Texas. It was here where the faculty and training at Baylor encouraged him to advance in periodontology. He was accepted into The Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, Oregon where he specialized in periodontics and obtained his Master’s degree in periodontology. It was there that he was able to develop his knowledge and skill in the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease, in addition to, obtaining experience in implantology and sedation dentistry. Dr. Blackwell has gained private practice experience working at an emergency dental clinic treating a wide range of conditions as a general dentist. In Portland, he was also able to work at the Portland VA Hospital performing periodontal treatment for veterans in need and educating them on periodontal disease and oral health.

Dr. Blackwell has published two research articles entitled, “Frequency of Root Surface Microgrooves Associated with Periodontal Destruction” in the Journal of Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry (November 2016) and “Specific Inactivation of Twist1 in the Mandibular Arch Neural Crest Cells” in Developmental Dynamics (May 2012).
