Dr. Jean Kathleen Cala
Dr. Jean Kathleen Cala was born and raised in an agricultural province of the Philippines. She went to high school in the Immaculate Conception Child Development Center and attended the University of the Philippines Manila College of Dentistry for a couple of years before her family moved to West Texas in 2013. When they got to Pecos, they were met with hospitality and kindness from our community. Since then, she knew she wanted to come back to West Texas after she graduated from dental school to serve her community. Dr. Cala graduated Summa Cum Laude with three associate degrees from Odessa College and her BS in Biology from the University of Texas – Permian Basin in 2017. Right after, she attended Texas A&M College of Dentistry where she received her Doctorate in Dental Surgery (DDS) and learned how to help people have a healthier smile and lifestyle in general.
While in school, Dr. Cala spent her free time volunteering in community centers, community clinics, the animal shelter, as well as leading the multicultural volunteering organization at the school. She also enjoys travelling to small towns, sewing projects, and gardening. She is looking forward to knowing and serving the Lubbock community as their general dentist!
