Dentist Curtis Fitzgerald Pressley has us feeling like it's time for a check-up. This hunk has it all—brains, beauty and brawn. Enjoy, ladies!
A southern boy at heart, Pressley was born and raised in Mauldin, South Carolina, and today he calls The Woodlands, Texas home. “It’s very nice,” he tells us. “I love living here. It’s a suburb about 30 miles north of Houston with lots of amenities, golf courses, walking trails and parks. It’s ‘the Burbs’ but a convenient commute into the city.”
Pressley adores his current digs. “I like the scenery and atmosphere,” he says. “It’s beautiful. The Woodlands has tons of tall pines. It pretty much stays green all year round. In the summer, the beautiful trees provide a canopy from the sun.”
“I am blessed to have had two loving parents that instilled in me the importance of setting goals and working hard,” says Pressley. “They always supported me and provided me with the resources that I needed to succeed.”
The doc has very fond memories of his childhood in South Carolina. “I loved playing on team sports,” he recalls. “I played basketball and ran track.” We see staying fit at a young age really did his body some good.”
Pressley doesn’t live close by his parents anymore, but they’re always on his mind and they remain super close. “We try to talk on the phone several times a week,” he admits. “My parents have always been supportive of all my activities.”
After graduating from the University of South Carolina and Medical University of South Carolina College of Dental Medicine, Pressley took a job in Virginia as an associate in a very busy practice. “I worked under a great dentist and mentor who taught me about the clinical as well as the business side of dentistry,” he tells us.
“I love helping people.,” Pressley reveals. “That is the main reason that I went into medicine. I work in a space that is five inches from your brain and five inches from your heart. I take my work and my patients very seriously.”
“My workout tricks are simpl,” says Pressley. “No secrets. No rules. No gimmicks. I am just consistent. I work hard and eat clean every day. I stick to traditional movements like bench press, squats, deadlifts and presses. They work, but you have to stick to a regimen. You have to train even on days when you don’t feel like training.”
Can you believe Pressley is a dancer too? Well, sort of. “I love to salsa dance,” he admits. “I have been dancing salsa since I was a teenager. I just love Latin music…the rhythm, the drums and the horns; the whole experience.”
“I also enjoy competing in the NPC in Men’s Physique,” says Pressley. “Win or lose, I enjoy the journey of preparing for a competition. I enjoy dieting and working out in efforts to be the best me I can be.”
“The coolest place that I have traveled would have to be to Venezuela,” says Pressley. “In dental school, we did two mission trips there for two weeks. Those experiences changed my life forever. I encountered people who truly were in need and I was blessed to have the opportunity to help them.”
