Kids of Oz Dental Staff

Cynthia A. Banker,  DDS,  MA

Cynthia A. Banker, DDS, MA

Dr. Banker is one of the best in her field. She received her training and education from the University of Texas Health Science Center and has been practicing since 1975. She is a member of American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, and the River City District Dental Society. With her title as San Antonio's first female dentist, Dr. Banker has been able to use her expansive knowledge of pediatric dentistry and her compassion for children in special needs situations to develop a uniquely inclusive private practice. While she loves her cute and wiggly cuties that come in for cleanings, she is very passionate about the chance to serve those kids who may need a little extra attention and compassion just to make it through a routine appointment.
