I have been working in the dental field for over 3 decades in general, cosmetic, and periodontal offices. I continue to have the passion for meeting new patients and providing them with quality care. I especialy enjoy working with all the new modern technology that our office provides.

Vicki and her husband, Stan, have been married for over 30 years. They hvae two grown daughters, Trenee and Kendall that still live in the area. They both enjoy spending time outdoors gardening, fishing and backyard fires. They also love spending time with their many dachshunds over the years. 


Chairside Assistant and Patient Comfort Coordinator

I have always been interested in dentistry, so being able to work here has been an amazing experience. I am currently enrolled in an online program to get my certificate in dental assisting to further my education.

Outside of work, I love to paint and spending time with my family and friends and my two yorkies.


Dental Assistant

Being a part of comprehensive dentistry, and witnessing improvement in a patient's oral health is very rewarding. In 2013, I graduated as a registered dental assistant from Milan Institute in the state of Texas. I am proud of the quality care and personal touch we provide our patients here at Smile Brightly.

In my spare time, I enjoy many artistic hobbies. My husband and I appreciate the outdoors hiking and biking with our dog.
