Dr. Rosenborough is a graduate of Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry. “Growing up in one of the worst poverty-filled neighborhoods in Dallas, odds were against me even though it sounds like a movie cliché,” he shares. “Family members were involved in the streets, but I kept to myself and found a home in sports.”Read More
He first discovered a pull towards dentistry at a Baylor University summer program he attended while taking dual credit courses at Roosevelt High School. Still not knowing what he wanted to do, he procrastinated applying to a four-year college though he was in the top ten percent of his high school class.
An advisor encouraged him to apply to a community college – which he did so late that his first-choice classes were filled. He also let his brother choose his schedule. “I didn’t even know if I wanted to be in college,” he says. “I just wasn't ready to make that next step.” But a positive experience at Cedar Valley College, coupled with a Rising Star scholarship, soon changed his mind about college and his future.
He took all of the science major courses he could, made all A’s and became a chapter officer in Phi Theta Kappa honor society. “I made awesome lifelong friends in that organization,” he says.
Jerrett transferred to and graduated from UT-Arlington. Though he was then accepted to Baylor University Nursing School, he did some heavy soul searching to realize that his real calling was dentistry. He is now excited to be practicing dentist at Uptown Dental Studio. He enjoys sharing his knowledge and talents with his community and looks forward to providing beautiful smiles to as many patients as possible.
