About Our Practice
DFW Oral Surgeons was founded in 1989 by Dr. Lee Oneacre. During Dr. Oneacre’s career, he served in various positions for the Texas Dental Association (TDA), American Dental Association (ADA), and Dallas County Dental Society.
As an active member of the community, Dr. Oneacre established our dedicated charity program. For years we have helped sponsor organizations like the Flower Mound High School Varsity Football team, the Wellington Sharks, the Guyer Silverados, the Lake Dallas High Steppers, and many others. He was also involved in many organizations that assist disadvantaged patients. Although he is now retired, we are proud to continue his legacy of service.
John Shillingburg, DDS
Dr. John C. Shillingburg has been with DFW Oral Surgeons for more than ten years. He has won best Oral Surgeon of Denton County for 5 straight years (2017-2022) and is a member of several national organizations. Some of his associations include the American Dental Association (ADA,), Texas Dental Association, and others. He is also a fellow of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
In 2013, Dr. Shillingburg founded the DFW Study Club. His goal was to create a peer-based continuing education group for other dentists and oral health specialists in our community. The DFW Study Club is an affiliate of the Seattle Study Club, which is one of the world’s most advanced continuing education groups for dental health professionals.
Lico Castillo, MD, DDS
Dr. Lico Castillo joined the DFW family in 2022 & we are so excited to have him on the team! Dr. Castillo was born and raised in Snyder, a small town in west Texas. Growing up, he loved and played football. He earned an athletic scholarship to play football at New Mexico State University. During that time, he realized God had a different plan for him, and he devoted himself to studying.
As a dental student, Dr. Castillo was fascinated with Oral and Maxillofacial surgery after shadowing a very complex facial reconstruction procedure. A dual degree program was offered to Dr. Castillo through the University of Missouri-Kansas City as one of two residents selected.
He graduated from medical school and completed an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery residency program in 2021. During his time there he married his beautiful wife Jordan who also shares his love for dentistry as a Pediatric Dentist.
