Dr. Brent Patterson, DDS
Texas City Family Dentistry was founded almost 20 years ago by Texas City natives Brent Patterson DDS (TCHS Class of ’89) and Michele Medley Patterson (TCHS Class of ’88) with the desire to create a dental office which provides an enjoyable experience for the entire family while also giving back to the community. After graduation from Texas A&M and UTHSC in San Antonio, Dr. Patterson decided what better community to serve than his hometown and Galveston County.
Texas City Family Dentistry’s reputation for the highest customer satisfaction and quality work combined with a family atmosphere allowed the office to expand to a second location in League City. With both offices using state of the art equipment as well as having kid’s game rooms, TV’s over the chairs and a friendly staff, dentistry can truly be an enjoyable experience for the entire family.
Texas City Family Dentistry has been an active member of the Texas City-La Marque Chamber of Commerce for almost 20 years. Dr. Patterson has been a past president of the TCLM Jaycees, the 9th District Dental Society and a board member of the TCISD Foundation for the Future. Over the last 15 years, both offices have gone into local elementary schools for Dental Heath Month and provided free screenings and toothbrushes to thousands of local children. They are currently participating in an “Angel Tree” which provides presents for kids in need. Texas City Family Dentistry is thrilled to be “Business of the Month” and looks forward to many more years of serving the people of Galveston County.
Houston-based developer Land Tejas Cos. announced plans for a 12-acre manmade Crystal Lagoon at its Texas City master-planned community Lago Mar. It will be six times as big as the lagoon at Land Tejas’ Balmoral community northeast of Houston and is set to be the largest in the state.
The lagoon itself will be part of a 70-acre resort-style compound that will include a hotel, waterfront boardwalk promenade, 250,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space and possibly condos and townhomes, according to a press release. Construction will begin soon.
When Land Tejas unveiled its $13 million lagoon and amenity village at Balmoral in August, a consultant with the company told the Houston Business Journal that future lagoons could be closer to restaurants or hotels and offer a public entrypoint as well.
In 2017, Land Tejas bought the technology from Crystal Lagoons U.S. Corp. to create the first Crystal Lagoons in the Houston area. The developer has another lagoon planned for another development, though it hasn’t announced the location yet.
Unlike traditional swimming pools that use chlorine to treat water, Crystal Lagoons use special EPA-approved chemical diffusers, an ultrasonic filtration system and underwater vacuums to keep the water crystal clear.
Kevin Morgan, executive vice president of Crystal Lagoons U.S. Corp., previously told the HBJ that Texas "will be the largest market in the country" within the next three to five years.
Construction for the 12-acre lagoon will be financed through Land Tejas’ lending partner, Trez Capital. Land Tejas is working with Florida-based Heidt Design LLC; Houston-based KGA/Deforest Design LLC; engineering consultant Kimley-Horn and Associates Inc.; venue management company VenuWorks and Houston-based Jones Carter to develop plans for the lagoon.
The 2,033-acre community Lago Mar is in Texas City . Eventually it will have 4,000 homes, priced from the $200,000s.
