About Canvas Dental

Any dental office can provide dental services, but not all patients enjoy their dental experience. Canvas Dental was created because we understand there is more to your dental experience than just providing dental treatment.

We are in the art of humanizing dentistry at Canvas Dental and believe everyone who visits should feel welcomed, comfortable and treated like a close friend or family member rather than just another patient. We are in the people business and take pleasure in getting to know you individually and connecting with you as a person while providing quality care.

With each and every visit, our knowledgeable doctors, hygienists and staff will be honest with you, while working with you to recommend only what is necessary to achieve proper oral health as well as meet your smile expectations.

Your smile is unique and is your personal piece of art that is displayed every day and we want to make sure we handle you and your smile with the utmost attention. Every staff member at Canvas Dental is passionate about what they do and stays up-to-date through continuing education beyond what is required by the State Board. We utilize modern technology so we can ensure proper treatment while you enjoy your experience here with us.

Because of our personal approach, we help decrease much of the anxiety you may have during dental visits. We go above and beyond by providing many amenities to make you feel comfortable as well as offer nitrous and conscious sedation options to help calm any nerves you may still have.

Our team works hard trying to make your experience as seamless and effortless as possible by incorporating a paperless system to help simplify and expedite your office visit. We also accept most insurances and provide 3rd party financing.

At Canvas Dental, we aim to please and do whatever we can to make your experience as pleasant and enjoyable as possible. We can’t wait to meet you and look forward to your visit.

Canvas Dental – inspired by you.

When you first meet Dr. Arismendi (Air-is-men-dee), aka Dr. A, you will notice he loves to smile and make people laugh. Overall, he is a very easy going and down-to-earth person that just likes getting to know people.

He is a native Texan born in Corpus Christi and raised throughout different areas of Houston, but has lived as far as Gaithersburg, Maryland.

What people don’t realize is his route to dentistry as a career is non-traditional, but his path has molded him into a well-rounded individual.

Dr. Arismendi was a collegiate athlete and played NCAA soccer at Southwestern University, but transferred to Texas State University where he graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing. He pursued a career in business, eventually attaining the stature of Director of Marketing for an intellectual property law firm while also completing a Master of Business Administration professional evening program at the University of Houston.

Throughout his experience, Dr. Arismendi realized he wanted to interact more with people, but more importantly he wanted to make a difference in people’s lives, which ultimately altered his career aspirations. He was introduced to dentistry by his brother-in-law and realized it was the perfect fit so he left his career to complete a 3-year post-baccalaureate science program for dental school application purposes, which led him to graduate from Texas A&M Baylor College of Dentistry.

Since graduating, Dr. Arismendi has practiced throughout Texas and continues to be passionate about fine-tuning his clinical skills by exceeding the necessary continued education required by the Texas State Board so he can ensure his patients are receiving the best care.

Dr. Arismendi is set on completing his Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry, which is one of the most recognizable designations that only 6% of General Dentists in Texas hold by which a professional completes 500 hours of continuing education.

He is an active member of the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the Texas Dental Association and the River District Dental Society

Outside of dentistry, Dr. Arismendi enjoys spending time with his wife Cassidy as well as spending time with family and friends. As a pastime, he enjoys cooking, watching movies and continuing to be active running half-marathons and playing soccer, sand volleyball and golf.
