Dr. McBee started practicing 19.5 years ago as an associate dentist. She purchased a practice in May of 2005, which is when she became a business owner. She decided she wanted to become a dentist in the sixth grade. Straight out of dental school, she worked with and for the dentist who inspired her to become a dentist, providing her with the foundation necessary to own and run her own dental practice. In November 2014, the new office location in southwest Lubbock on Milwaukee Avenue was opened. The team is happy to serve patients they acquired at their original location, as well as patients that have joined them since the move to the new location!
In 2014, Dr. McBee was chosen by her peers to be included in Lubbock Magazine’s Top Dentists 2014 in the General Dentistry field.

Dr. Tracy Rene Henson-McBee
Dr. Tracy Rene Henson-McBee is a native Texan. She was born in Lubbock, Texas, to Robert and Henri (Henrietta) Henson. She has a twin sister named Stacy, who is the girl’s head basketball coach at Fossil Ridge High School in Keller. She also has an older sister, Cindy Hogue and an older brother, Jon Henson.
She grew up in Meadow, a small town 25 miles southwest of Lubbock. She graduated from Meadow High School in 1990, and from Angelo State University in 1994, with a Bachelor of Science degree (major in Biology/minor in Chemistry). She graduated in May 1998 from the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio Dental School with her Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree.
Three weeks after graduating from dental school, Dr. McBee married James McBee from Ballinger, Texas. James is a working cowboy. They live in the country near Meadow and have 2 boys: Riley and Tate. Her family keeps her very busy when she is not in the office.
Dr. McBee loves dentistry and knew as a sixth grader that she wanted to become a dentist. She enjoys the relationship that she forms with each patient, and feels so blessed to be involved in an occupation that can improve people’s self-esteem by making them feel better about themselves by creating a beautiful smile.
People in and around Lubbock are not like people anywhere else. It is very gratifying to be able to help hard-working people in the area. Lubbock’s economy is driven by agriculture, which Dr. McBee understands because her dad was a cotton farmer before retiring in 2008.
Dr. McBee makes it a priority to stay up-to-date on the latest dental technology. She attends numerous dental courses each year to keep her knowledge of dentistry current. Technology is evident in her office with the patient favorite Waterlase MD Dental Laser, that allows her to do fillings without anesthetic.
Dr. McBee’s office and staff are very personal, and they make each patient feel at home and at ease. Her office is not a large clinic that operates in large volumes. Patients are not herded in and out like cattle. Each patient is treated like family and has access to Dr. McBee more easily than other dental or medical offices. She takes her job very seriously, but she manages to do so in a “fun” way. It is not uncommon for a patient to tell her, “That was the best dental visit I have ever had.”
Dr. McBee is involved in organized dentistry. She is a member of the South Plains District Dental Society, the Texas Dental Association, and the American Dental Association. When she is not in the office, she enjoys spending time with her family, cooking, swimming, exercising, wakeboarding, playing basketball, watching sports, and being involved with her boys in their extracurricular activities.
Dr. McBee recently published her own cookbook titled Spurs and Smiles. It is a collection of approximately 300 recipes from her own kitchen, as well as from family, friends, and patients. You can purchase one of her cookbooks by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling her office at 806-792-2171 . She also has a page on Facebook called Spurs And Smiles.
