They moved to the Alamo City in 1997 and Dr. Rust started a new practice at the present Hwy 281 and Bitters location.
Dr. Rust received his Mastership into the Academy of General Dentistry July 19, 2008. This is not easily attained. It takes extreme dedication to the profession. In the 54-year history of the Academy of General Dentistry only 2,378 dentists nationwide and in Canada, have achieved this award. This is less than 2% of all dentists nationwide. To attain Mastership, members must first receive their Fellowship. It takes years of continuing education, over 1100 approved credits. In addition 400 hours of the required credit must be in participation courses. Dr. Rust will continue to stay on the cutting edge of dentistry. He will always strive to learn so that he can give his patients the very best that dentistry has to offer. As the numbers show, not very many dentists have Dr. Rust's enthusiasm for their profession.
