Meet the Doctors
William E. Graves, DMD
Dr. William Graves was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. He always knew that when he grew up, he wanted to pursue a career that he could enjoy. Originally, Dr. Graves was interested in dentistry but eventually discovered that oral surgery was more enjoyable and rewarding for him. He liked the idea that oral surgery was a mix of medicine and dentistry, and he could treat a wider range of patients in need.
Since he began practicing full-scope oral and maxillofacial surgery in 2008, Dr. Graves has enjoyed every day of his job. His patient philosophy focuses on patient comfort, and he is always willing to go out of his way to ensure that every patient’s experience is comfortable and positive. He finds his work so enjoyable and rewarding that he doesn’t consider it a job. He came to Amarillo because he saw a need for an oral surgeon, and he felt that with his patient-centric philosophy, he could change the lives of the Amarillo community.
Paul S. Wilkinson, DMD, MD
Dr. Paul Wilkinson always knew he wanted to pursue a career in medicine, but he also knew he wanted to explore various specialties before committing to a particular area of medicine. His exploration of various fields began when he decided to follow in the footsteps of his aunt—an anesthesiologist—and volunteer at the children’s hospital. While there, Dr. Wilkinson observed a range of different specialties, but he ultimately connected the most with oral surgeons. During his volunteering experience, he learned from the oral surgeons about what they do and how their field combined his two interests—anesthesia and surgery. From there, pursuing a career in oral and maxillofacial surgery was a no-brainer.
Dr. Wilkinson has been practicing oral and maxillofacial surgery since 2010, and he joined Dr. Graves—his friend since dental school—at Amarillo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery in 2011. The most rewarding part of Dr. Wilkinson’s job is making people happy. Dr. Wilkinson often sees patients who have suffered for a long time; when he can identify and solve their oral health problems, he gets the most satisfaction from seeing their happiness and gratitude.
