Dr. Andrew Heaton
Dr. Andrew Heaton was born and raised in Southern Utah and spent his childhood playing little league, raising chickens, and working in his family’s garden. As he grew up he found that his first love was sports. But, it didn’t take long for him to realize that his second passion in life was dentistry.
After obtaining his bachelor’s degree from Southern Utah University he was accepted the University of Southern California for dental school. There he not only served the adults and children of the greater Los Angeles area, but also worked with AYUDA, a non-profit organization that reaches out to provide free dental work to underserved children. With this group he gave his Saturdays to local free clinics and also had the opportunity to travel to Belize, Mexico, and Nicaragua to help children who would never have had the resources to get their dental work done otherwise. It was during this time that he realized that making a difference in the current and future health of a child was what he most wanted to do with his career.
From that point forward he focused on pediatrics (children’s dentistry). Upon completion of his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree at USC in 2009 he was accepted into a pediatric dental residency at Louisiana State University Health Science Center in New Orleans Louisiana. For two years he worked in Children’s Hospital New Orleans providing specialized dental care to children of varying backgrounds and health needs.
Dr. Heaton married his wife Candice during the first of his many years of schooling and training. Together they have four children. In June 2011 he completed his residency and moved to Texas to open All Star Children’s Dentistry. In November of 2012, Dr. Heaton was awarded the title of Diplomate, American Board of Pediatric Dentistry after achieving board certification.
His goal is to provide quality care for every family that he sees and to help create a healthier future for the children in the area which he serves.
Dr. Alison Campbell
Growing up in Austin and New Braunfels, Dr. Campbell spent many summers in the Texas Hill Country, which she fell in love with from the minute she saw her first sunrise over a bluff and jumped in the Frio River. Her adventures in life have taken her many places, but Texas will always be home. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to work in Marble Falls at Lakeside Children’s Dentistry.
After graduating from New Braunfels High School (and forever a proud Unicorn), Dr. Campbell attended Texas A & M University in College Station, then continued her education at Texas A & M Health Science Center, Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas. Certain her life calling was to work with children, she completed her pediatric residency program at the University of Maryland, Baltimore College of Dental Surgery. She has been published in Pediatric Dentistry and received the Paul P. Taylor award (2014) for her work, awarded to the most prestigious journal article in Pediatric Dentistry from the previous year. She is a board certified pediatric dentist and member of the AAPD, ABPD, and our local dental society.
When not busy at work, she serves as “CEO” of the Campbell family which includes her husband and three children. Afternoons and evenings are spent at baseball fields, jumping on the trampoline, turning furniture into tents, and simply having fun! She feels beyond blessed to have an amazing family that loves and supports her in everything she does.
They say when you find something you truly love, then you’ll never work a day in your life. That is how Dr. Campbell feels about pediatric dentistry. Each day is an opportunity to meet and help others, starting each child on a lifelong journey of achieving good dental health, along with being the proud owner of a beautiful smile!
