Registered Dental Hygienist

I was born and raised in Fort Worth and currently live in Arlington, TX. I have been married to my husband, Kyle, for more than 12 years, and I have an adult daughter who will be graduating from Notre Dame this year. I also have a son who attends Kennedale High School. My family is super important to me, and I strive to see them as much as I can.

I chose dentistry because I’ve always been obsessed with pretty teeth. So, when my orthodontist asked me to come work for him, I knew this was the profession for me!

I take delight in building trustworthy relationships with my patients. This allows me to make patients feel comfortable and help them put their fears to rest.

Interesting Fact:

My favorite quote is, “Every day may not be good but there is something good in every day!”

Registered Dental Hygienist

I graduated from TCC with an Applied Science in Dental Hygiene degree in 1991. I have been practicing dental hygiene for more than 28 years.

I’m close with my family and friends, especially my identical twin daughters – who are both in the health field.

I have loved dentistry since I was a little girl. I believe God chose dental hygiene for me because I was lucky enough to be accepted into the Applied Science in Dental Hygiene Program (one of the toughest programs for acceptance).

I really enjoy how dentistry is always changing and that I get to help people and be a part of their journey in life.

The best part of my job is the people I treat. I love seeing my patients and helping them receive the best dental care possible. I also love my dental family. We all band together to provide the best treatment and maintenance for our patients in a warm, loving environment.

Interesting Fact:

Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love getting together for cookouts and playing games. God has blessed me with great people to enjoy my life with. Oh, I also love getting pedicures!

Registered Dental Hygienist

I was born in Arizona but spent most of my childhood in Oklahoma. I played soccer in high school and then moved to Texas to go to college.

I moved to Fort Worth after college, where I met my husband, and we have twins.

I always knew I would never enjoy sitting at a desk for work. I have always loved the health field and loved being around people.

My grandfather was a dentist, and I thought dental hygiene would give me both the opportunity to have a career in the health field and also the flexibility to be the mom I wanted to be for my kids. So I got my Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene in 2000, and I still enjoy my job today!

The best part of my job is getting to see my patients and hear how they are doing! I also enjoy the staff at our office! They are more than just co-workers – they are friends. It is a group that will always help each other out and takes care of the office as a team.

Interesting Fact:

Outside the office, I enjoy playing tennis, doing photography, and love to volunteer for things I feel passionate about.

Registered Dental Assistant

I grew up in Dallas and then moved to Mansfield with my husband, Jason, and two daughters, Jordan and Jadyn.

I was first drawn to dentistry because of the impact it can have, not only on your smile, but also on your overall self-confidence. My goal as a dental assistant has always been to be compassionate to each patient’s needs while making them feel comfortable during each visit.

Interesting Fact:

My mom is my hero. She is the most selfless person I know. The world would be a better place if there were more people like her in it.

Registered Dental Assistant

I was born and raised in Abilene, TX. I’m married to my wonderful husband, Jeremy; together we have two boys, Preston and Parker. Together, we love going to the park and the zoo.

I chose dentistry because I never went to the dentist regularly as a child, and really didn’t have any passion about oral health until high school. Because of this, I love to educate people about dentistry and help them be as healthy as possible.

Along with educating, I love talking to and connecting with my patients. This way I can help them find the confidence to smile!

Interesting Fact:

I had perfect attendance from kindergarten to 8th grade.

I grew up Keller, Texas. I’ve been married to my husband Chris for 21 years and we live in Kennedale. I have two wonderful daughters, Maggie and Maddie, and both play college volleyball. I have two sweet dogs, Winston (Mini Aussie) and Lola (Golden Doodle).
I chose dentistry because I love seeing people smile.
The best part of my job is the connection we have with our patients. It’s always rewarding to see our patients leave the office happy with a beautiful smile.
I’m compassionate and I like to show kindness towards my patients and coworkers. I enjoy helping others and cheering them on.
In my spare time I like to travel with my husband to go watch our daughters play volleyball. I enjoy shopping trips with my daughters and I also enjoy running around my house playing with my dogs. I also love to try new DIYs.
One of my bucket list items would be to go on an Alaskan cruise.
