TEAM

SHAVAR

Shavar is one of our Registered Dental Hygienists and has loved cleaning her patient’s teeth since her graduation from Concorde Career College in 2012.  Described as warm and gregarious by many of our patients, she puts patients at ease as she explains the process of a dental hygiene visit – from taking x-rays and charting, to tailoring teeth cleanings for each patient’s needs.  Born and raised in New Orleans, she has been a proud Texan for the past twelve years.  When not spending time with her patients, Shavar loves to cook and savor meals with her family as well as hike the Comanche Trail in San Antonio.

HALEY

Haley graduated from Remington College – Nashville in 2010 as a Registered Dental Assistant.  She completed this academic endeavor with two certificates of perfect attendance and a 4.0 GPA.  Haley joined the Kyle Dental team in April, 2013 as Dr. Chris’ primary clinical assistant.  As of September 2015, however, she is our clinical supervisor for the back office, providing continuous training and support for all clinical staff.  She strives to lead a healthy lifestyle, eating fruits and veggies daily and working out at her local gym.  Haley moved to Texas in 2011 with her boyfriend, Christian, and never looked back.  In her free time, she is either on the lake with friends and family, or spending time in Austin.

TIFFANY

Tiffany is our scheduling and insurance coordinator and is the friendly voice you will hear upon calling our office.  Her incredibly kind and calm demeanor yields smiles and a feeling of comfort in many of our patients, garnering her a fan club with both our younger and adult patient population.  A Registered Dental Assistant, you may also find Tiffany in the back office with Dr. Chris, as she is an efficient multi-tasker and is always willing to step in when she is needed.  She has held her RDA certification for eight years and worked in Beaumont and Austin before joining our team in Kyle in April, 2014.  Tiffany is originally from Baton Rouge, LA but has called Texas home for several years.  In her free time, you can find her spending time with her daughter, cooking, baking or reading.

ASHTON

Ashton is a proud 2013 graduate of our local Hays High School.  Shortly thereafter, she obtained certification as a Registered Dental Assistant through the Dental Essentials School of Dental Assisting, and has been helping patients with their dental treatment needs ever since.  Ashton joined the Kyle Dental team in March, 2015 and transitions smoothly between both back and front office.  From assisting Dr. Chris with dental procedures to multi-tasking at the front desk, she’s a dedicated team player.  A Buda, TX native, she currently resides in San Marcos where she dotes on her 2-year old daughter, Charlotte, and her kitties, Milo and James Franco.  In her free time, you can find her kayaking on Town Lake, enjoying the lovely central Texas weather.

RUBY

A former bilingual education teacher and UT-Austin Academic Advisor, Ruby is now one half of the leadership duo at Kyle Dental.  She holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Houston (where she met Dr. Chris!) and a master’s degree in Bilingual Education from UT-Austin.  Though she now works in a very different setting than that of an elementary school or college campus, Ruby still very much uses her educational background and enthusiasm for helping others on a daily basis.  As the Operations Officer for the practice, she leads the staff in providing the best possible care for their patients by keeping the entire office productive and on-schedule.  Keenly aware that it takes teamwork to achieve goals, Ruby is in the thick of most all daily operations, helping her team members in any way possible.  Her priority is demonstrating that a happy and productive staff leads to a happy and healthy patient base.  Ruby was born and raised in Houston, TX but has called the Austin-area home for the past ten years.  She is completely bilingual in English and Spanish and truly enjoys every opportunity she has to translate for her Kyle Dental patients.  In her free time she loves to practice yoga, train for half marathons, travel internationally and visit new eateries with her fiancée, Chris.
