Dr. Cliff Alexander grew up in Dallas and graduated from Highland Park High School. After receiving his BBA degree from St. Edwards in Austin he moved to Santa Barbara, California to join a consulting firm. While there, he began to see the business side of dentistry as many of his clients were in the dental field. He realized that dentistry could satisfy his goals in business as well as his first objective of being of service to the people. So he decided to go back to school with the goal of entering dental school, and then of being accepted to orthodontic residency. He graduated from Baylor College of Dentistry in 1993 and from St. Louis Department of Orthodontics in 1996. He was asked to join the part-time faculty in St. Louis in 2000 where he lectures on the Alexander Discipline and oversees orthodontic patient care once a month. He currently sees patients in both the Coppell and Dallas offices.
