Our Story

Families Serving Families

The story of Amarillo Dental Associates is truly one of families serving families.  Dr. Michael D. Vaclav founded the practice back in 1975 on Georgia Street in Amarillo because this is where he grew up and these were the people he wanted to serve.  In 1978 Dr. Vaclav built an office at 7201 W. 34th.  He started out in general dentistry serving many Amarillo families, one of which was the Street family.  Little did he know that one of the Street children, a patient of his, would be inspired by his work and follow in his footsteps.  Ryan Street was mentored by Dr.Vaclav in his younger days and would eventually complete his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Baylor College of Dentistry where Dr. Vaclav graduated.  True to form, Dr. Ryan Street joined Amarillo Dental Associates in 2004 as an Associate. He would later become a trusted partner in the practice and then owner in 2019.  Dr. Ryan D. Hyde joined the Amarillo Dental Associates team as an Associate in July 2017.  Since the beginning, the dentists of Amarillo Dental Associates have been committed to serving and helping the families of Amarillo care for their oral health.
