Meet the Team

We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding experience every time you visit our practice.

Business Manager

“I help our patients understand quality dentistry, and I educate each patient on their insurance to help create a patient base with a better understanding of reimbursements for a non-network/fee for service dental practice. I love working for these doctors because I respect the quality of work delivered to our patients.”

Tricia rejoined our practice in 2016 as our front office business manager after retiring from her career in medical imaging. She began her dental career with Chris in 1992 and was his dental assistant for 16 years. Tricia’s vast chairside and lab experience is invaluable when discussing treatment planning with our patients. In addition to patient education, Tricia works with our patients to maximize insurance benefits and payment options when scheduling.

When not working, Tricia and her husband Dennis stay busy with their teenage son who recently graduated New Diana High School, watching as many summer baseball games as possible with his T.H.A. Stix baseball team.  You may find her working overtime this fall as she learns to adjust to the empty nest when Ethan makes his way to Hill College to begin his studies and play baseball at the next level.



Registered Dental Assistant, Clinical Coordinator

“Each patient and each case are unique. I love the interaction I have on a daily basis with our patients.        We have the BEST patients and I feel so lucky to work with them and help make their experience more enjoyable.” 

Karla joined our practice in 2012 and worked as Chris’s lead dental assistant until late 2018.  She is now the Clinical Coordinator and she oversees everything regarding the back office (clinical) aspect of our practice. Karla is bi-lingual in English and Spanish and that is a huge asset in the office. The thing Karla most enjoys about her work is being involved with all the different types of cases in the office from routine to full mouth restorations. 

Karla and her husband are the parents of a young son and daughter.  She stays busy with her son’s football and basketball activities and she enjoys the outdoors and going to the gym.
