YAY! You clicked on my picture, which means you must want to know a little more about me….
I am honored to have been working with Cross Timbers Dental since 2008. I began working in the dental field in 1992, while I was in high school. First as an orthodontic lab technician, then as a chairside assistant. I quickly transitioned into general dentistry where I was a chairside dental assistant for many years before returning to college at Texas Woman’s University. I graduated in 2005 with simultaneous bachelor’s degrees in dental hygiene as well as dietetics and institutional administration. I am excited to practice both holistic and traditional dental hygiene. I have been described by many as “a nerd with a lot of energy”. My current areas of study include orthomolecular and functional medicine as well as quantum biofeedback. I take pride in staying on top of current research, in multiple disciplines, which include reading both peer reviewed literature and the various journals of holistic medicine. I very much enjoy having a knowledge base that goes beyond just focusing on the head and neck. I love being able to share anything that I have learned with my patients that could help them in their own research and overall health. I take my career(s) seriously, but I love to have fun and pamper my patients with small touches like organic lip balms, pillows, gold stars and a gentle touch. By going the distance, I am honored to say that over the years many of my patients have become my personal friends outside of the dental office.
When I am not nerding out; I like road trips, paddleboarding, watching the stars (yes, I am outside at 3:30 am on many nights) and creating stained glass pieces. I’ve lived in Flower Mound since 1979, when Cross Timbers Road was called “Main Street” and only had two lanes; wow how things have changed. I am married and have two “grown” children. I am excited you clicked on my picture, hopefully you’ll feel like you already know me when I to get to know you as well!
