Daniel L. Gentry, DVM
Dr. Gentry graduated from Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine in 1999 Cum Laude. In May 1999, Dr. Gentry was selected to complete a Small Animal Medical and Surgical internship at Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine. This provided Dr. Gentry with further training in areas of small animal internal medicine and surgery. Dr. Gentry spent 4 years in small animal private practice before moving on to the emergency referral center in Mesquite (Lake Ray Hubbard Emergency Pet Care) where he practiced full time. Dr. Gentry opened Timbercreek Animal Hospital in September 2006.
Dr. Gentry and his wife Beverly have two children, Allison and Tyler. Dr. Gentry and Beverly have resided in Rockwall since birth, and their families work and reside here as well. Beverly is a school teacher for the Rockwall ISD. They have two pets, a Chocolate Labrador dog named Duke, and a Labrador Retriever named Lucky. When not caring for peoples' pets and teaching children, the two enjoy family, the outdoors and fishing.
Dr. Gentry and Beverly have envisioned opening up their own small animal practice in Rockwall since graduation from Texas A&M. The clinic provides preventive medical care such as routine vaccinations, spays and neuters as well as internal medicine, surgery, dermatology and dental care for cats and dogs. Canine and feline patients are the focus of the practice and Dr. Gentry and his staff strive to give the best most progressive care in the business.
People are encouraged to stop by and tour our facility as well as meet Dr. Gentry and his staff. We will make every attempt to make you and your pet feel welcome in our clinic.
Nikki Jones, RVT
Nikki attended Murray State College in Tishomingo, Oklahoma and graduated with an Associate’s Degree in Applied Science from their accredited AVMA Veterinary Technology Program in 2002. She then passed the national and Texas state board exams and obtained her status as a Licensed Veterinary Technician in 2002. Nikki worked for a progressive small animal day practice for 2 years where she found a special interest in canine behavior/puppy training. In 2004 Nikki started working full time for Lake Ray Hubbard Emergency Pet Care Center in Mesquite, TX and became the lead technician on staff. Nikki values the experiences she acquired while working in the emergency and critical care field.
Nikki and Dr. Gentry worked at LRH Emergency Pet Care Center together and in September 2006 Dr. Gentry opened Timbercreek Animal Hospital and selected Nikki to be his lead technician. Nikki was excited about returning to day practice and looked forward to providing exceptional nursing care to each and every patient. Nikki strives to educate every client and show every patient the attention they deserve while they are visiting Timbercreek Animal Hospital. Nikki still has a special interest in canine behavior but has found a new love for dermatology while working alongside Dr.Gentry.
Nikki resides in McKinney, TX with her now, 1yr old cat named “Fetch”. The cat’s name is suitable because when she was only a few weeks old she was “fetched” by Dr. Gentry’s hunting dog from his backyard. After months in the hospital, Nikki was finally won over by the kitten, adopted her and fittingly named her “Fetch”. At that time Nikki had 2 boxers, to whom she had taught sign language because one of them was born deaf. Sadly, both boxers have since passed away but are still loved dearly. Nikki enjoys spending time with family and friends. Nikki is a member of Covenant Church in McKinney, TX and loves donating her time as a volunteer in their Celebrate Recovery Program. They say, if you can’t find Nikki at work, then you will likely find her at church!
