Dennis Heald PA-C, Lab Director

Dennis Majored in Biology and Chemistry and minored in language at The University of Texas Arlington. He graduated from University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center Physician Assistant Program and completed his Master’s of Physician Assistant Studies through Nebraska’s Medical Center.

He’s worked in Family Practice and Urgent Care for 21 years. Along the way he has been a professional speaker for numerous pharmaceutical companies and adjunct faculty for UTSWMC PA program. This is where his inspiration for Functional Medicine began. After seeing the disappointing end with the pursuit of “Conventional Western Medicine”, as well as, the poor outcomes of most traditional western pharmaceuticals and allopathic approaches to healthcare his spirit resonated more with a Functional approach to wellness and cure.

He helped to develop a vitamin supplement in the mid 1990’s that changed the way vitamin delivery systems operated. He continued to work on the delivery of vitamins in IV form and search for optimal oral vitamin products.

In the past few years he has been involved with the research of several new technologies for devices that have an integrative medical approach to health and wellness. He is currently a PhD candidate for his doctorate in both Integrative Medicine and a Doctor of Natural Medicine.
