After becoming the first African-American to graduate from the University of Texas Dental Branch-Houston in 1956, Dr. Poindexter Jr. opened his first dental practice in Houston’s historic “Chocolate Bayou” neighborhood.

v2_toni_harris_turnaround_queenEvery year around this time, many of us restate our resolutions or goals for the upcoming year. Many of those resolutions are the same ones we stated last year. You know the ones, lose weight, improve my health, eat right, save more money, spend less, start my business, go to school, etc., etc. Some of the reasons we don’t achieve these goals is because we don’t take DRASTIC steps and move outside our comfort zone to obtain the goals.
