Samantha originally started in the dental field as an RDA but quickly found her joy in the front office aspect of dental. She finds fulfillment in helping patients understand their financial and insurance concerns so that they can obtain their desired smile goals with ease and confidence. (Sam is her name and insurance is her game) She loves bringing joy to others and strives to make everyone feel important and cared for because smiling faces are the best faces.

Vangie’s love for people and making them smile is what made her decide to become an RDA in 2015.

I have been a RDA since 2015, I enjoy meeting new people each day! My goal is to make sure every patient feels at ease in the dental chair! When not at work you can find me and my husband finding new places to eat or I am curled up at home with my crochet projects!

kelly hygiene coordinator

Hygiene Coordinator

With over 20 years of experience in customer service, and having lived in 9 different states, Kelly comes to us having worked with a vast variety of people and fields, including the dental field, restaurant industry, and spa industry. For the past 5 years, Kelly served her community as a police dispatcher in Austin, and although it was fast-paced and very exciting, she missed the face to face interaction that the dental field brings. Kelly is passionate about patient communication and patient comfort. Knowing that dental appointments may bring anxiety to some, she loves to try and put the patient at ease when they visit the office, or on the phone.  When Kelly is not at work, she enjoys watching ice hockey, doing crafts, and hanging out with her husband, two beautiful step-daughters, her dog Toby, and her cat GusGus von Whiskerton.
