Meet Dr. Wesley Zboril - Owner of Sealy Kids Dentistry

I attended the University of Texas Dental School in San Antonio and graduated in 1982. The mandate for that school was to bring dental care to rural communities and I have been following that mandate for more than 35 years.

My goal has always been to provide the best care to the people of Austin and surrounding counties and I began bringing specialists to Sealy shortly after opening my practice.

As Sealy has grown it has become possible to realize the dream of providing full-time specialist care to the youth of Sealy in the form of a combined pediatric and orthodontic office. Our pediatric dentists are able to treat a wide variety of dental problems in a safe, comfortable way. Being afraid of the dentist is something that usually begins at an early age but with doctors specifically trained in treating kids and keeping visits comfortable, dental phobias and the related pain and health problems they create can be a thing of the past. This is why Sealy Kids Dentistry is here.

For the older kids and young (and young at heart) adults, when it is time to correct bad bites or improve their smile, Sealy Orthodontics gives families the convenience of being able to keep travel and time or missing school or work to a minimum. Avoiding having to repeatedly drive out of town for care is a great savings of time, stress, and money. These two beautiful offices with their great doctors are all part of our mission of "creating beautiful smiles." I invite you to come in and enjoy them!

Meet Dr. Sears - General Dentist

Dr. Sears grew up in a small town in Central Louisiana. She became interested in dentistry when she began working as an Orthodontist assistant and Lab assistant as a teenager and during her undergraduate program at Louisiana State University. After receiving her bachelor's degree in biological sciences with a minor in chemistry, Dr. Sears attended Louisiana State University School of Dentistry and obtained her doctorate in Dental surgery in 2014. During her degree program, Dr. Sears received two prestigious awards for her clinical case on orthodontic movement associated with periodontal extrusion and the Southwest Academy of Restorative Dentistry student award for Devotion to the Science and Advancement of Restorative Dentistry.

Upon completing dental school, Dr. Sears worked two years as a traveling doctor seeing children in underserved areas in rural Louisiana. She later relocated to Houston, Texas, where she provided dental care to inner-city communities.

Dr. Sears is a general dentist but loves working with children so much that her practice is limited to pediatrics. She is currently a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Texas Dental Association, Louisiana Dental Association, Greater Houston Dental Society, and Delta Sigma Delta International Dental Fraternity.

When not in the office, Dr. Sears can be found running the park, practicing yoga, or trying new restaurants. She also enjoys traveling and exploring Texas. Dr. Sears is excited to practice in Sealy and prides herself on providing the best dental care possible. She strives always to be compassionate towards her patients, is very detail-oriented, and most of all loves working with children of all ages. She is looking forward to meeting all of the fantastic families at Sealy Kids Dentistry.
