I have been actively involved in the field of dentistry for the last 28 years and with Dr. Carey’s practice since October 2002. I started my dental career at the age of 21 working as a chair-side dental assistant and later transitioned to front office administrator. I enjoy helping our patients achieve healthy smiles by guiding each patient through their treatment plans, financial steps and appointments all with courtesy and professionalism. I have one daughter whom I enjoy spending quality time with. We both enjoy traveling and providing community service. I am happy to be involved in dentistry and have the opportunity to build great relationships with our patients and coworkers. I believe just as Dr. Carey does in helping patients obtain lasting oral health and brighter smiles.
I started in dentistry as a dental assistant and as my passion for dentistry grew I made the decision to enroll in the Dental Hygiene School at the University of Texas Dental Branch in Houston. Working part time on weekends, I graduated as a dental hygienist in 1995 and have enjoyed helping my patients improve their oral hygiene ever since. I am excited that I can offer laser technology for our periodontal patients with outstanding results and increased patient comfort. On my time off, I enjoy gardening and the outdoors. I also actively volunteer as a tournament chaperone for my children’s softball, volleyball and color guard teams. I enjoy a busy family life and helping my patients maintain optimum oral health.
I am excited to have 38 years of experience as a dental auxiliary. I cannot imagine a more fulfilling field where I get to not only meet our wonderful patients everyday but also get to help them achieve great smile. As a Dental Assistant my goal is to help ensure that each patient is comfortable and their procedure runs smoothly. My hobbies include reading, cooking, gardening and enjoying the outdoors. I am blessed to have a 28 year old son who makes me proud every day. Recently I got engaged to a wonderful man and we are looking forward to our new adventures in life.
