Meet the Doctors

Dr. Tom NajjarDr. Tom Najjar




Dr. Richard PotterDr. Richard Potter earned his undergraduate degree in Biochemistry at The University of Texas at Austin and received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio Dental School. Though he practices all aspects of General Dentistry, Dr. Potter’s focus is Occlusal Therapy. Dr. Potter’s professional passion is being able to treat his patients with the best dentistry possible. It can be as simple as relieving the patient’s pain or as complex as rebuilding their entire occlusion while improving their smiles to health and beauty. The patient’s healthy smile at the end of treatment is his ultimate gratification.
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Potter and his wife enjoy serving their community in any way they can, be it free dental clinics, church retreats or feeding the homeless. He is also an avid reader and enjoys spending time outdoors with his family and friends. Dr. Potter’s patients especially like his great sense of humor and the ability to have fun while at work. He believes that a healthy sense of humor can make everybody’s day a whole lot better!

Dr. Christopher Marlette

Dr. Chris Marlette and his wife Yvonne moved to San Antonio in 2009 to be closer to their family which have lived here for many years. After graduating from the University of Florida College of Dentistry in 1981, he had his own private dental practice for 27 years. With the many years of being a business owner, entrepreneur and provider of high quality dental health care, he brings a unique perspective to his association with Heritage Dental Center. He is extremely skilled in all aspects of dental care including full mouth reconstruction, cosmetic dentistry, root canal treatment, dental surgery, dental implant placement and restoration.

Dr. Marlette enjoys every minute outside of the practice of dentistry spending time with his lovely wife. Whether it be hiking or biking, he and Yvonne love the outdoor activities that Texas offers year round. They also enjoy spending lots of time with both sets of their parents who live here in San Antonio as well as their son Chris on the weekends. Being avid football fans always brings them and their family together on the weekends. This couple feels truly blessed to be in this city to care for their family and to care for the dental needs of the community surrounding Heritage Dental Center.
