About Us

Origins of DSTAR

After 15 years of providing office-based anesthesia to pediatric and adolescent patients, Dr. Ronald J. Garza, DDS, and Dr. Vincent Young, MD, decided to leverage their combined 50-plus years of sedation and anesthesia expertise to create a comprehensive dental education platform. Located in Dallas, Texas, our primary focus is to offer live sedation courses for dentists seeking license renewal with a sedation endorsement. These courses can also be conveniently completed online, with plans to introduce a hybrid option for remote participation.

DSTAR has been granted an AGD PACE number and will provide a range of continuing dental education modules for self-paced study and online learning. Feel free to explore our CE offerings, subscribe to our newsletter, peruse our blog, or reach out with any questions or messages. Our website is continually evolving, so be sure to sign up for our newsletter to stay updated on our latest CE offerings and developments!

Dr. Ronald Garza has been in practice for more than three decades and has distinguished himself as a pediatric dentist in the community. Dr. Garza is committed to continuing education because he understands the importance of staying at the forefront of an ever-evolving profession that constantly challenges his knowledge and skills. Continuing education keeps him informed and updated with the most advanced techniques and technology and ensures that he meets the highest standard of care in pediatric dentistry.

While Dr. Young enjoys pediatric anesthesia, he also provides adult OBA and sedation for ENT and odontectomy procedures as well as a history of sedation for colonoscopy in hospital and surgical center settings.
