Meet the Staff
Lori is the financial coordinator for the office. She presents and explains treatment plans to the patients and verifies and files insurance and helps to find affordable ways for patients to pay for their dental treatment.
Lori has been in the dental field since 1977, working the first 17 years as a dental assistant in both general dentistry and oral surgery. She then went on to further her career and graduated in 1994 from the University of Texas Dental Branch Houston dental hygiene programs and has worked the last 25 years as a registered dental hygienist. As a dental hygienist, she received several certificates of completion from the Academy of Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy to further treat patients with tongue thrust, open bite, mouth breathers, and thumb sucking.
Lori feels that her vast experience in the dental field enhances her ability to explain treatment to patients in a way that is understandable and can answer any question the patient may have.
Lori has been an avid runner since 1999 with several marathons and ultra-marathons under her belt. She is a wife, mother of 2, grandmother of 4, and has lived in the Houston/Sugar Land area for 42 years. She and her husband just purchased a camper trailer and look forward to traveling and seeing some of the “country side”!
