Patient Care Manager
Stephanie studied at Houston Community College, and today, her career in dentistry spans over five years, with hopefully many more to come. She loves being able to help all of our patients accomplish their dental needs and goals. Her patient, calm nature is ideal for keeping the dental office running smoothly day in and day out!
At home, Stephanie and her husband have twin girls and one son. In her free time, she really enjoys shopping and experimenting with makeup.
Patient Care Coordinator
Brianna is a native Texan, originally from DeSoto near the Dallas area, and has worked in the dental field for over 5 years. She graduated from the University of Houston with a B.A. in Communications so it's no wonder that she enjoys getting to know patients and making them feel more comfortable by making friendly conversation. In fact, Brianna will be the first person to greet you as you walk into the dental office! Her educational background is very beneficial in assisting new patients with any concerns about their oral hygiene. Her strong communication skills allow the team to set up the proper preventive care and treatment plans. When the weather is nice out, you''ll find Brianna outside; she likes to hike, bike ride, and picnic in the park. She also enjoys shopping and spending time with her friends at brunch. One interesting fact about her is that she is left handed. She's the only left-hander in her family, which makes her feel special!
Azra has been working in the dental field for over five years now. She studied at the University of Houston and working towards her dental laser certification. As one of our talented hygienists, she loves getting the opportunity to develop such rewarding relationships with patients! She strongly believes that dental hygiene isn’t just limited to the oral cavity; it also serves as a Segway to discussing a person’s overall well-being and quality of life. These discussions help her personalize their treatment and provide valuable education that fits each patient’s needs and wishes.
A Houston native, Azra’s family is composed of herself, her dear husband, and their baby girl Luna, who is a Bengal cat. Outside of dentistry, she loves cooking, practicing yoga, and doing pretty much any kind of outdoor activity. She’s always up for anything and thrives in the here and now! Here’s an interesting fact about her: she has something called trypophobia, which is a fear of closely packed holes like you might see in a honeycomb or a lotus seed pod.
Holly is originally from Topeka, KS, and she studied at both Kansas State University and Wichita State University. Today, she has been working in the dental field for over two full decades! She is certified in using dental lasers to treat gum disease. What she enjoys most about her role at the dental office is being able to help people and establish relationships with each special patient.
Holly is married and have two girls named Kylie and Shelby. In her free time, she enjoys traveling and curling up with a good novel or historical fiction book. She’s very passionate when it comes to learning about other cultures, world history, and international cuisine. One day, she hopes to visit every state in the US and travel to every continent in the world. So far, she’s been to France, England, and Italy. She’s in the midst of preparing a new trip to Greece and Turkey in late 2020!
Registered Dental Assistant
Samantha has joined our team with over 8 years in dentistry, and what she loves most about the field is creating a safe and relaxing place for her patients to transform their smiles while educating them on maintaining their oral health. She has learned very valuable skills first-hand from both dentists and other dental assistants. She is a 4th-generation proud Texan and was born and raised here in Houston.
Samantha attended high school at Cesar Chavez in south Houston.
When she's not working you can find her reading or taking her 3 sons on outdoor adventures to nearby parks and Texas beaches. She also loves music and enjoys going to live concerts. Despite the hot summers here in Houston, Samantha loves the wintertime. The holiday season is her favorite time of year, and she has become a collector of Christmas items such as villages and statues. One interesting fact about her is that she loves to bake and cook even though she says she's not so great at the baking! It brings her joy even when the dishes aren’t always amazing.
