Meet Our Doctors
Our story - good apart, great together
Dr. Phillips (Jenn) and Dr. Plant (Pace) relocated to Texas in 2015 after Dr. Plant completed a tour of active duty as a dentist in the US Air Force. Since graduating dental school in 2012, it was their dream to own and operate a practice together, it was only a matter where to do it. After a visit to the Hill Country they quickly fell in love with Central Texas, especially Bell County. In 2015 they assumed ownership of Royal Dental in Harker Heights and have been continually delighted and proud to serve that community since then. They have a blended family with a total of five great kids.
Jennifer Phillips, DDS
Jenn comes from a humble background – she spent much of her childhood working for her dad cleaning pig stalls on a small farm in Southern Utah. Her unconventional upbringing no doubt played a roll in her inspiring work ethic and uncanny ability to use humor as a way to make the best of even the most unpleasant circumstances. Indeed, if there was one word to describe Dr. Phillips it would be HUMOR. Her loud and lovely laugh resonates throughout our office and acts as a wonder drug to the many patients who struggle with dental anxiety. Her endearing personality is as beautiful as she is and it’s easy to see why her patients absolutely adore her.
Pace Plant, DDS
Pace loves learning; a series of life events influenced him to pursue dentistry and he hasn’t looked back since. While admittedly not as funny as his wife, he is very lighthearted and definitely does not take himself to seriously. He loves working with his hands, creative problem solving, and making people smile, so dentistry was naturally a great fit for his personality. He particularly enjoys cosmetic dentistry and actually had Dr. Phillips redo his “grill” in 2019. When he’s not at the office he loves spending time with his wife, kids, and jamming on his drumset. He also continues to serve in the Air Force Reserves.
