Dr. Robert D. Batton
I am very thankful for the profession of dentistry and orthodontics, and the many wonderful opportunities it affords me to serve my community in an important and close way; it allows me to raise and maintain my family in the wonderful environment of Fort Worth, Texas, which I consider the greatest city in the country, and to enjoy the independent practice of my chosen profession rather than a corporate one. It has allowed me to remain true to myself and the ideals that have shaped me and continue to shape me and the values that are at the core of my being.
I am most excited about having more and better ways to help my patients achieve results that they desire and health that they deserve with treatments that can be accomplished in shorter periods of time.
My patients are truly people I care about and consider friends; it is my pleasure to seek each and every day to deliver to them the best experience for orthodontic or dental care they have ever had.

I choose to be on the cutting-edge of my profession, and I feel that continuing education is the best way I can provide this for my patients.

My training has involved all aspects of dentistry and orthodontics through the Las Vegas Institute of Rehabilitative Dentistry, American Association of Orthopedics and Orthodontics, and Spear Study Club, as well as certification with Invisalign®, Six Month Smiles®, and Fastbraces®.

Outside the Office
I am married to Linda, my high school and college sweetheart, and we have two grown children and six amazing grandkids. John, our son, and his wife Elizabeth, live in Fort Worth and have three children, Rob, Lauren, and Kate. Our daughter, Mary and her husband, TJ, live in Austin and have three children, Jackson, Riley, and Hudson.
When I’m not working, I love to be outdoors. Mountain climbing, hunting, hiking, biking, and staying fit are all important to me. Our family loves the beach and we go there as often as possible, sometimes just Linda and me, and sometimes the whole dozen of us!
In the Community
Being active in the Fort Worth community is extremely important to me. Having the opportunity to give back to a community which has been such a blessing to me seems only natural, and it allows me the opportunity to serve others who would not be able to have the services I offer any other way. I regularly volunteer at the dental clinic at Beautiful Feet Ministries, a non-profit that serves the homeless of Fort Worth. Linda and I are also active members of Jewel Charity, a non-profit which benefits Cook Children’s Hospital. We support TCU and have thoroughly enjoyed getting to see the university where I got both undergraduate and graduate degrees excel in the Big 12, and we enjoy being active in our Church, Christ Chapel.
