Registered Dental Hygienist

Hi! My name is Gracie and I am from a small Texas town named Beeville where I obtained my dental hygiene license.  I'm enthusiastic and I have a heart warming personality that makes patients feel welcome and comfortable.

I want to be the reason someone smiles today.....  "Stay calm... I'm a Dental Hygienist"


Registered Dental Hygienist

Hi! My name is Aurora, but feel free to call me "Rory." I've started my career in the dental field in 2007 as a Dental Assistant for the U. S. Army and became Registered in 2010. I loved the dental field so much I decided to continue on to Dental Hygiene School at Coastal Bend College! I really enjoy meeting new people and helping my patients feel comfortable.

As a Registered Dental Hygienist, it is my goal to provide the best oral and dental healthcare for my patients and surrounding communities in a professional and effective manner. I am committed to providing patient education and excellence that will enhance the quality of life for my patients and bring about awareness to the connection between oral and systemic health in a gentle, mindful, and caring manner while providing the tools and resources needed to achieve a lifetime of overall health. 

Remember: Smiles are ALWAYS in style! :)
