Meet our Hygienists
We feel so fortunate to get to work everyday with our hygienists, they show a sincere loyalty to our patients and to our practice. We take special care to answer all questions or concerns our patients may have regarding their teeth and ongoing dental health. The hygienist appointment is the perfect time to inquire about new procedures, the latest dental health recommendations and current recommended standard of dental care.
There is no greater illustration of our practice's experience and longevity of care than our hygienists, Carolyn Kezar, Renee Villarreal, Maricela Rodriguez, and Karel J. Wake
Carolyn Kezar is a caring hygienist and has dedicated more than 46 years of patient care to our practice. Her experience and her thoroughness are highly valued and appreciated. Her expertise is to make sure that our patients have clean teeth and are fully informed about their oral health when they leave the office. She is a graduate of The University of Texas Tyler School of Hygiene and Texas State University (formerly Southwest Texas State University) .
