Dr. Mollere is committed to professional growth and training and attends extensive hours of Continuing Education each year at National, State, and Local Meetings.
Dr. Rod Mollere decided at an early age he wanted to be a dentist. He was introduced to the dental profession in his home community of San Antonio, Texas where his mother worked in a dental practice. Following his graduation from the University of Texas Dental Branch Houston, he blended his dedication to dentistry with his desire to travel by joining the United States Army. His first assignment was the beautiful city of Nurnberg, Germany where he requested the challenge to work with children. For the next five years, Dr. Mollere had the unique opportunity of working with three talented Pediatric Dentists that mentored him in the care, management and techniques of Pediatric Dentistry.
Nurnberg proved to be both professionally and personally rewarding for Dr. Mollere. Living in Germany presented him with unlimited choices in travel and exploring Europe which he thoroughly enjoyed.
Dr. Mollere met the love of his life in Nurnberg where Shelia was a teacher with the Department of Defense Overseas Dependent Schools. Later they celebrated their marriage with family and friends in a candlelight ceremony in a beautiful old church outside of Nurnberg followed by a honeymoon cruise to Greece and Turkey.
Following Dr. Mollere's five year mentorship in Pediatric Dentistry he was assigned to his formal two year residency at University of Missouri at Kansas City in Pediatric Dentistry. Upon graduation he continued his military career in Texas and then S.H.A.P.E., Belgium which presented new opportunities to introduce his sons, Marc and Chris, to international cultures and travel.
Following S.H.A.P.E., Belgium Dr. Mollere served as Program Director of the Pediatric Dentistry Residency at Ft. Meade, Maryland. A return to Texas followed Ft. Meade with an assignment to Ft. Bliss in El Paso. Dr. Mollere and his family immediately liked the blending of the military and civilian communities, the diversity of living on the border, the wonderful weather, beautiful mountains, but MOST of ALL the friendly and hard working families of El Paso and surrounding areas.
Dr. Mollere is proud of his military service and retired at the rank of O-6 Colonel. He chose to remain in El Paso to serve the fabulous civilian and military families in the area, first working at the La Fe Clinic and later in private practice. Today he maintains his practice at 965 N. Resler Drive across from Franklin High School. Dr. Mollere finds amazing satisfaction that many of his patients started with him as toddlers and are now off to college, military academies, and other career choices. (Some even expressing an interest in becoming a dentist!) He and his talented team assert they have the "WORLD'S BEST PATIENTS" and welcome new patients to join their family. They make your children their Number One Priority and treat them exactly like they would treat their own children. Your children are VERY SPECIAL and deserve the Personalized Specialty Care Dr. Mollere can provide.
