Physician & Dentist
As selected by peers

A recognized specialist in implant surgery and all aspects of implant dentistry, doctors from around the state refer their patients to Dr. Tye. In addition to his surgical skill, he is particularly regarded for his compassion and commitment to his patients’ health and comfort. Thanks to his expertise and far-reaching reputation, his peers recognized him as one of Fort Worth Magazine’s 2017 and 2016 Top Doctors.

Dr. Tye is especially passionate about using dental implants to restore his patients’ bites and smiles.  Implant surgery and implant restoration will be a collaboration between your general dentist and Dr. Tye. He will communicate directly with your regular practitioner, who will provide the abutment and restoration that will top the implant posts. Dr. Tye will perform the surgery himself, placing the implants in a manner that will minimize discomfort and recovery time.  Be sure to ask your dentist about referring you to Dr. Tye for all of your oral surgery needs.

Dr. Tye follows the Golden Rule and treats all people with respect and compassion. Patient care is his number one priority, and he has a warm, genuine personality. Since childhood, Dr. Tye wanted to be a surgeon. He is proud to be living his dream of taking care of others.

With over 25 years of experience and a list of exceptional credentials, he has much to offer in the latest methods of patient treatment, new technology, and current healthcare standards.

In his free time, he enjoys riding his bike, swimming, running, and lifting weights. He feels personal fitness is an important aspect of providing the best surgical care to his patients. He and his wife also enjoy cooking together, traveling with friends and family, watching movies at home, and going to church.
