Dr. Magruder grew up locally in Dickinson, Texas and received his undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University. He went on to receive his DDS at UT Health Science Center- San Antonio. He is very detail oriented regarding his dental work (his assistants would say a little OCD) and strives to provide his patients with Dentistry of the absolute highest precision and quality; dentistry that is built to last. Dr. Magruder invests a lot of his time reading dental literature and attending continuing education courses in order to stay on the cutting edge in dentistry. He has a special interest in cosmetic dentistry and is working toward earning accreditation with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

Dr. Magruder genuinely cares for each of his patients and treats everyone like family. As a direct descendent of General John B. Magruder, Dr. Magruder discovered that he has an interesting historical connection to the island. General John B. Magruder was a Confederate Civil War General who took back control of Galveston Island from the Union Army during the Civil War in 1863.

When Dr. Magruder is not busy in the office perfecting your smile, he enjoys cooking, traveling, and spending time with his wife Sonia, baby boy Benjamin, and Labrador Boss. You may also find him chasing speckled trout and redfish in the Galveston Bay complex or Laguna Madre.
