About Us

Your Family Dental Practice Since 2005

Choosing a dentist can be a challenging experience. How do you know you've made the right choice? How do you know how you'll be treated and what kind of "chair-side" manner your care giver will have. We love our patients and know--without a doubt--that our patients are the most important part of our practice. We strive to welcome each person who walks through the door in a warm manner and to always do our very best for each person seated in our chairs. Spending ample time with each patient and being sure they know the status of their oral health is important to us.

The act of rendering dentistry is a very personal and intimate act. Having strangers work in our mouth is an act of trust and faith. We believe its essential to gain a patient's trust early, make an individual feel at ease and to never violate the trust we develop. Our job is to educate our patients: to make them aware of the conditions in their mouth, instruct them as to the available options for treatment and to give them all the information they need to make a wise decision on the best course of treatment. When we do render treatment, its our task to do it painlessly, quickly--with quality and precision.

William D. Titus, DMD, PA, is your hometown dental office. We make it our business to know our patients and to establish long standing professional relationships with them. It's our hope that you'll give us a chance to be your dental provider. We're confident that you'll quickly notice the difference and you'll find a long term home for your dental care!

In an era of change, where large, publicly traded corporate dentistry, with large dental chains are beginning to dominate the marketplace, knowing your dentist, and being able to trust that your well-being is taking priority over profit, is reassuring. We want to win your trust and keep it! Should you ever have any question about recommended treatment, we not only welcome questions, we expect them from our patients.
Meet the Doctor

William D. Titus, DMD, PL

Dr. Titus comes to Callahan by way of the United States Navy Dental Corps. Originally a native of Pennsylvania, he moved to Florida to take a billet on the U.S.S. John F. Kennedy (CV-67) stationed at Mayport. As a Pennsylvanian, he attended Messiah College, a Christian Liberal Arts school located about 10 miles south of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Upon graduation, he matriculated at Temple University School of Dentistry in Philadelphia. In 1992, after four years of study, he earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from this institution and then went on to complete a residency in hospital dentistry at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP), also in Philadelphia.

When Dr. Titus completed his hospital residency, he returned to his hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania to establish a practice in 1993. He practiced for 3-1/2 years in Scranton before answering an invitation by the United States Navy to accept a commission in the Dental Corps.

In April of 1996, Dr. Titus swore into the Navy at the rank of Lieutenant. He completed Officer's Indoctrination School at Newport, R.I., where he was made Company Commander. By June of that same year, he reported to the JFK in Mayport, Florida. He was made Dental Division Officer on board the carrier and spent the next two years of his naval career there. After completion of two years with multiple underway periods and a six month Mediterranean and Persian gulf cruise, he left the JFK to accept a billet at Naval Hospital JAX, located at Naval Air Station Jacksonville. There he also served as Division Officer--rendering dental care for the Naval members who served as Hospital Personnel. He was promoted to Lieutenant Commander at this duty station, and earned his Florida dental licensure.

After three and one-half years of service, Dr. Titus separated from active duty in late 1999 and accepted a position with Smilecare Dental Associates of Jacksonville, Florida in early 2000, where he staffed the corporation's Northside office located on Dunn Avenue. After 5 years of employment with Smilecare Dental Associates, Dr. Titus returned to private solo practice after purchasing the practice of Dr. Parker Shaffer in Callahan, Florida where he practices today.

Dr. Titus's dental philosophy centers around prevention and patient education. New patients will quickly see that he spends ample time to make sure that patients know what dental pathology is present, what treatment options are available, what the pros and cons of each treatment are and what consequences might be wrought should the condition go untreated. Regular screening for cavities, periodontitis, oral cancer and other pathologies are conducted at annual examinations. Pit and fissure sealants, prescription fluoride, preventive resin restorations and other modalities are routinely used as preventive measure for our patients.

As the father of three adult children and the grandfather of three, loves children, but limits his practice to those children 6 years of age and older. Younger children require extra time and attention that does not fit well into the schedule of a busy general practice.
