Dr. Travis Watson

"I’ve actually wanted to be a dentist since I was a small child. My uncle was a dentist, and one of the close family friends was a dentist. I sort of grew up a little bit in that environment. Not so much as my wife did with her dad, but I enjoyed seeing my uncle interact with patients. That interaction, and that communication, and getting to know people over many, many years is one of the things I enjoy about dentistry. It’s probably the one thing I enjoy about dentistry. Of course I love, I’m a tech guy and I love to get into some of the gadgets that we have in dentistry. For the most part, it’s just all about getting to know people and having friends and family and just here in our office each and every day."

Meet an Accomplished Dentist in Marietta

Originally from middle Georgia, Dr. Travis Watson knew he wanted to be a dentist when he was just a boy. He worked hard to achieve his dream, and today he is dedicated to treating patients to the best of his ability while building long-term relationships.

Dr. Watson received his Bachelor of Science in microbiology from the University of Georgia and graduated from the Medical College of Georgia School of Dentistry. He was then accepted into one of the top hospital-based residencies in the country at the University of Alabama-Birmingham.

It was during his residency that Dr. Watson not only developed his skills in comprehensive dentistry but also received his surgical training in dental implants. He had always enjoyed surgery, even in dental school. His residency allowed him to nourish his passion for surgery along with his new interest in dental implants.

He received the 2003 Most Outstanding Resident award and became proficient in implant surgery, oral surgery with IV sedation, oral medicine, and complex treatment planning. Dr. Watson has a strong background in prosthetics (tooth replacement). To date he has completed hundreds of hours of training in restorative dentistry, making him stand out as an expert in planning implant surgeries. In his 14 years of dental implant experience, he has placed and restored several hundred implants.

Over his many years of dental practice, Dr. Watson has compiled more than 2,000 hours of continuing education, including major stints at the world-renowned Dawson Academy in St. Petersburg, FL, the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS), Phelan Dental Training, and the Pankey Institute in Key Biscayne, FL. He has completed a number of continuums with various teaching centers, with several through the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID).

In 2009, Dr. Watson received a fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), one of the youngest dentists in the state of Georgia to do so. In 2010, he was selected among 45 other individuals to participate in Leadership Cobb, a great honor and experience. He served as President of the Georgia Academy of General Dentistry in 2013. In 2014, Dr. Watson was one of the few dentists recognized in Atlanta Magazine as a 5 Star Dentist. Dr. Watson was recently appointed to the Georgia Dental Peer Review Board, which means that he is a professional witness in most litigation cases in Georgia where there has been sub-standard care. This means that he is a role model for a high level of ethical treatment and care for patients. In 2020, he was the first-ever recipient of the Best Dentist in Cobb award, which is a great honor to be recognized out of the 140 dentists in Cobb County. He received a fellowship in the International College of Dentists and has very proud affiliations with the following organizations:

  • American Dental Association
  • Georgia Dental Association
  • Academy of General Dentistry
  • Hinman Dental Society
  • Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS)
  • Atlanta Metropolitan Study Club
  • Northwest District Dental Society
  • American Academy of Implant Dentistry
  • Georgia Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
  • International College of Dentists

Dr. Watson and his wife, Dr. Cameron, live in Marietta and have two kids, Baker and Vivian. In his spare time, he enjoys running, golfing, tennis, going to Georgia football games, traveling, and playing the banjo.
