Dr. Block grew up in West Houston and still calls it home.
She graduated from Stratford High School and attended the University of Texas where she
earned her Bachelor of Business Administration in 1984. She went on to the acclaimed Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas
to fulfill her dream of becoming a dentist. She received her Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) in 1989 and returned home to
Houston to set up her practice. She now lives in West Houston with her husband, Jeff, and their two daughters Bayle and Marni.
When asked about her treatment philosophy, Dr. Block describes it as “educational”
and “conservative.” She enjoys teaching patients about their oral health and conditions, takes plenty of time
with new patients to thoroughly describe her findings and answer all of their questions, and believes that a patient who really
understands their dental conditions and sees them on a monitor screen in front of them can “co-diagnose” and take
part in their treatment decisions. She takes the conservative approach to treatment, choosing
the least invasive options available.
Dr. Block is active in her childrens' schools as
well as the community at large, and enjoys doing anything creative with her hands from scrapbooking, cardmaking, jewelrymaking,
to larger projects such as carpentry.
