Our Family Dentistry Team
Carla – Office Manager
I joined the team in 2011, and have over 25 years of experience in the dental field. I have also had training in business management and psychology, though I’m most passionate about dentistry and the well-being of our patients. I love interacting with people and helping them enjoy healthy, confident smiles by helping them learn about, and navigate, their insurance and treatment options.
Outside of the office, I mostly enjoy reading and spending time with my children and grandchildren.

Rinda – Financial Coordinator
I’ve worked in dentistry for over 30 years, and joined the team in early 2015. I love being part of a great and caring staff, and working with a doctor who is professional, and ethically driven. It makes it easier to pass on my peace of mind to our patients! I enjoy getting to know patients and their families personally, and helping them feel comfortable and at ease during their visits. I can address their questions and concerns about their treatment, insurance, and financing options so they can make informed decisions and be involved in every step.
Outside of the office, I like to stay busy with my two beautiful daughters, and my scrappy puppy. I also enjoy reading, cooking, and antiquing in my spare time.

Jillian – Registered Dental Hygienist
I joined the team in 2016 after graduating from Northern Virginia Community College with an Associates of Applied Science Degree in Dental Hygiene. I’m also specially certified in CPR, and am a member of the following:
- American Dental Hygienists’ Association
- Texas Dental Hygienists’ Association
- Virginia Dental Hygienists’ Association (nominee for Student Leadership Award)
The best part of my job is forming new and lasting relationships with each of our patients, and helping them navigate every step of their journey toward enjoying a beautiful, healthy smile. Outside of the office, I enjoy cooking, hiking with my dog, and spending time with my family. I also enjoy volunteering for Give Kids a Smile, the Head Start Program, and providing oral health education and dental cleanings to those with special needs.

Amber – Registered Dental Hygienist
I graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 2000 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene, and joined the team in 2003. I’ve also received certification in CPR and in the maintenance of periodontal disease, and am a member of the Ft. Worth Dental Hygiene Society. What I love most about my job is being able to personally interact with every patient. I also love scaling and root planing, and witnessing the improvement in a patient’s oral health.
Outside of the office, I volunteer for Christian Mission Trips around the world, and have been to Haiti, Africa, and Brazil. I also enjoy spending time with my children and sharing their hobbies, teaching at my church, doing Pilates, and traveling for fun.

Shawn – Dental Assistant
I graduated from Tarrant County College’s dental assistant program in 1999, and joined the team in 2004. Our patients are my favorite part of my job, and I love developing personal relationships with them and creating a comfortable environment for them in our office.
Outside of the office, I like to unwind by reading.
