Our Office Hour


Dental Assistant

Hey there! My name is Alana.  I love to socialize and get to know others! I’m the second oldest out of my siblings and all of my cousins.  I also love helping take care of my younger family members.  I would say I really just try to use my light to brighten up those around me.

In my free time I entertain myself by doing arts & crafts, running track, fishing, and hanging with my friends.

My favorite Disney movies would probably have to be any Avengers movie, Anastasia, or Moana.  If I could be any Disney character it would be Moana. I would love to live in Hawaii and have her super pretty hair!


Treatment Coordinator

My name is Brenda. I’m the oldest of 3 siblings, the only one far away from home. I’m bilingual Spanish English (sometimes Spanglish) I’m married and have 3 beautiful daughters that we homeschool since 2016.  I’m a licensed insurance agent in more than 15 states. I enjoy helping people get protected and getting retirement plans in place, I also like to train new agents so they can start making money from home.

I love traveling with my little family and pets Sunny our miniature schnauzer, Gucci our miniature goldendoodle, and our horses Romano, Maestro, Picasso, Magnifico, Zorro and Farruco. We have been to more than 25 states here in the USA and we like to go to Mexico so we can enjoy its beautiful beaches and great food as well.

I love cooking, especially Mexican food. I like meeting new people and helping others.  

One of my favorite Disney movies is Wish, I like it because it tells you that you must fight for your wish and not let anyone control it. You are the owner of every single wish, and you can either accomplish it or let it be just a dream. 



Dental Assistant

Hi y’all! My name is Luke. I’m the middle child in my family. I have been a type 1 diabetic for over 16 years! I am also Emergency Medical Responder certified.

In my free time I love building Legos, biking, solving puzzles, playing games, singing, playing the piano, or riding my motorcycle!

One of my favorite Disney tv shows is Star Wars the Clone Wars! If I could be a Disney character, I’d probably be Obi Wan Kenobi.


Dental Assistant

My name is Faith! Ever since I can remember, I've wanted to work with children. It brings me so much joy to see their faces at work every day.

In my free time, I love to hike, spend time with my sisters, catch up on TV shows, and take long naps.

My favorite Disney movies are the Toy Story movies, but if I could be any Disney character, I would probably be Cinderella!


Dental Assistant

Hello! My name is Blanca. I am the oldest of all my siblings, so I love working with kids. 

In my free time, I like to read, go on walks with my dog and watch movies 

My favorite Disney movies are Monsters Inc., Ice Age, and Finding Nemo. If I were to be a Disney character, I would like to be Penelope from Wreck-It Ralph.
