Dr. Poulos was always a kind and caring person. He was well respected by his patients and his peers in the dental community. He will be missed, but surely never forgotten. 🛐

There will never be a man like Dr. Poulos!! He was the kindest person that will have ever crossed our path. Always had a smile on his face and was always interested in what was on your mind. Not only was he my awesome dentist but I am glad to call him my friend!

Brad and Brian,

I am so sorry for your loss.

I want to share something on this site from an email shared with me.

I know both of you have seen it.

It exemplifies the high standards of your father.

To clarify for this site, it was written about your dad when he received his award for 60 years of perfect attendance at Kiwanis.

I paraphrased it a little.

In dental school, George was classmates with Rex Witherspoon and they became friends.

George went home with Rex one weekend, and while there he met Rex's sister, Patsy Ann.

Young George could not keep his eyes off Patsy Ann, and they ended up getting married.

George and Patsy later moved to Texarkana, where he practiced dentistry for 50 years.

His nickname was Painless Poulos.

Their marriage stood the test of time, as they recently celebrated their 71st wedding anniversary in 2021.


Your folks were great people!
