Registered Dental Assistant
I have been in dentistry for 28 years, the last 10 of those with Dr. Rogers as his Restorative and Implant Dental Assistant. In my years of dental experience, I have held multiple positions including dental assistant, receptionist and office manager. However, my passion is being chairside with patients and helping create plans for their dental health while, also, keeping them comfortable through the dental procedures.
I attended U.T.A. and am always excited about continuing education. I look forward to ways I can improve my talents and grow as a professional to help our patients.
Outside of dentistry, my life is all about family and friends. I spend much of my time watching my two kids play competitive soccer. My daughter, Erin, is 14 and my son, Cole, is now 12. We all enjoy movies, beaches, hanging out with friends and amazing food.
Registered Dental Hygienist
At a young age, I was impressed by and admired dental hygienists I knew. So much, it inspired me to pursue it as a profession. I attended Tarrant County College to obtain my dental hygiene degree and have been a Registered Dental Hygienist for 32 years.
For the last 20 years, I have worked with Dr. Rogers educating and helping maintain patient’s dental health. I specifically enjoy helping patients feel comfortable in what can be an uncomfortable situation with an attentive, caring gratefulness for allowing me to serve them. In addition to my responsibilities professionally as a hygienist, I also have significant experience in bite splint therapy and night guard fabrication.
I feel I was raised by the best parents and strive to continue that legacy with my family. I’m blessed to live my life with my husband, Pete, and our son, Turner. We are excited to see him develop his dreams of being a professional baseball player as he has been drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays organization. It helps fuel my love of sports. I hope to travel more with Pete including watching Turner pitch. My other love is with pets (owning 6 rescue animals) and I love cooking.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I am a graduate of Texas Woman’s University where I received a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. Upon graduation, I received the Rising Star award in which I was voted to be most successful as a dental educator. That initial success has translated from an educational program into a clinical role. I have spent my professional career educating and treating patients around the metroplex until I found my “dental home” at Dr. Rogers practice in Dalworthington Gardens the last 4 years.
Each year I use my continuing education to help individualize care for patients. I chose this career path because I love teeth, am detail oriented and like to meet new people. This allows me to keep a positive, progressive outlook in my professional career and for each patient.
My absolute favorite aspect of dentistry is when my patients truly recognize the improvement in their dental health. I enjoy learning about my patients and developing a trustworthy, reliable relationship as their hygienist. The additional, strong relationship with my office team makes it ideal to treat people.
If I didn’t take this career path I would be a professional jockey or polo player! I enjoy riding horses, hunting and spending my time outdoors with family and friends. I volunteer as a committee member in Stewards of the Wild Fort Worth Chapter where I help connect and educate the public about the great outdoors.
I have one older brother who is 6’8”, two of the best parents you could ask for, one cat, one dog and three horses. I am loyal, determined, on-the-go, social and work hard. One of my favorite books is called “The Hunt” : Target, track, and attain your goals by David Farbman. A must read!!!!!
I have been in the Dentistry field for close to 12 years. My Dad was a Dentist in town, so after school I would help out and work there during summer breaks! After going away to school and even trying Cosmetology for a brief time, I made my way back and knew that was where I wanted to be.
Throughout my years in Dentistry, I have worked anywhere from the front desk helping schedule, working on insurance and even working in the Lab. I have developed a passion for each position in the office! As much as I love to be hands on, my favorite place to be is the front desk. I love to interact with patients and enjoy being able to make sure they have the best experience before they leave! I enjoy being able to help patients coordinate appointments, understand their treatment and help with insurance if needed!
I have a 9 year old daughter, Bentley who loves Volleyball and Swimming! If we aren't at a game we are probably at the pool, doing arts and crafts or spending time with other family and friends. My favorite thing to do in my time off is cooking and trying new recipes! If I could be the next contestant on a cooking show I'd be there in a heartbeat!
I am a graduate of Sam Houston State University where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design and a minor in Photography. Walking in the footsteps of my Mother who works in the Medical field and cousin who is in the Dental field, it just seemed like the perfect career to explore. I enjoy using my creative background to help connect with patients in unique ways. I come to Dr. Rogers' office with 5 years of dental office experience, including a background in Oral Surgery.
It is important for me to continue to learn and grown my dental knowledge each and every day. I thoroughly enjoy building relationships with patients and getting to know what I can do to meet their dental needs. As a Patient Facilitator, I hope to put a smile on our patients' faces and help make a positive experience.
During my downtime, I enjoy spending much of my time with family and friends. I have been blessed with an incredible husband, Jordan, my parents & brother Josh. I love being an Aunt to my sweet niece Macy & nephew Marcus. On the weekends you can find me baking in the kitchen, swimming, designing or shopping. I am also a dog mom to my Great Dane/Lab mix named Ace.
Dentistry is a career I absolutely love, for the past 39 years, 12 of them were here with Dr. Rogers. In my many years in the dental field, I have held numerous positions including Registered Dental Assistant, Lab Assistant, Receptionist, Administrative Coordinator, & Office Manager. I truly respect each and every position. I have no favorite, because I have grown professionally with each and every position. I am thankful to serve again here with Dr. Rogers office in Practice Development.
The most gratifying & rewarding part of dentistry for me is building relationships with patients so that they can have the best experience while achieving their dental goals.
I have a wonderful husband David of 38 years. Two daughters, Courtney & Lauren, they have blessed me with 5 grandchildren, Bryce 13, Jacob 11, Kaylynn 10, Madilynn 4 & Riley 1. In my spare time, you will find me spending time with my family, friends & watching my grandchildren excel in their sporting events. I also love to play tennis.
