Lisa was born in Waco, Texas. She grew up with an older brother and two sisters. She started her dental career as a dental assistant working in a pediatric dental office and enjoyed it a lot. She then decided to further her career and go to hygiene school where she graduated with my Associates in Dental Hygiene in 2016. She is also CPR, BLS, and Nitrous Oxide monitoring certificated. She enjoys educating, interacting with the kids, and cleaning teeth!
She truly enjoys working with her coworkers as a team and interacting with the kids. “Children are fun and will tell you a lot of stories and I am never bored and absolutely love hearing their laughter and helping them understand the importance of oral health and having a great experience at the dental office. The most rewarding aspect of my job is seeing children leave the office with preventive measures such as sealants as well as polishing stain and seeing that the kids are happier with their smile and less likely to have dental decay.” – Lisa
