drchudejDana W. Chudej (pronounced coo-jay) was born in Victoria, Texas and raised in Houston.  He graduated from Southwest Texas State University, now known as Texas State University, in San Marcos, Texas in 1980 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a minor in Chemistry.  Before entering University of Texas Dental Branch in Houston, he worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center in the radiology department.  He graduated from UTDB Houston in May 1985.

Dr. Chudej was in private practice in Pasadena, Texas until 2007.  He then began working for a national dental corporation, primarily focusing on cost-effective surgery and denture care for adult patients.  Throughout his professional career, Dr. Chudej has always employed the use of in-house denture labs to reduce costs and provide faster service for his patients.  Waco Dental and Denture Care continues this level of service.

Dr. Chudej earned his Fellowship of the Academy of General Dentistry in July 2006, an achievement earned by less than 5% of general dentists in the country.

Dr. Chudej and his wife of thirty-two years have three adult daughters.  In his spare time, he enjoys hunting, fishing, and watching college and professional football.


Our Mission

Waco Dental and Denture Care has provided quality care at affordable costs to Central Texans for over 25 years. Dr. John Scott established this practice in 1990, providing general care, prevention, restorative, and extraction/tooth replacement services at reasonable fees. It is my goal to carry on that level of dental care at reasonable costs for Wacoans and Central Texans.

Sometimes life gets in the way. Life isn’t always perfect and neither are our teeth.Sometimes other priorities get in the way.Sometimes we take care of everyone else but ourselves. A lot of times we carry childhood memories of dental visits into adulthood that keep us from seeking relief from pain. And a lot of times, dental care and relief from pain are just not in the budget. Let us help you take the first step, you don’t have to live in pain with broken or infected teeth. A simple X-ray, then an open discussion of what’s wrong, an explanation of why you’re in pain and what it’ll take to heal,to feel and look better,to move forward. Ask questions, get informed, get relief. Come meet Dr. Chudej. Let him explain your dental issues in plain talk so that you can understand and gain trust and confidence in someone who has been practicing for over 30 years. We’ll help you get out of pain. WDDC provides preventive care, restorative care (fillings, crowns, fixed bridges),implant crowns and bridgework, and implant-retained dentures. Sometimes, life does get in the way. Let WDDC help you find a way out of constant dental pain with affordable denture, partial, and implant solutions…at affordable fees. Take the first step.
