Meet the Team


Office Manager

I like talking with our patients and families, and making sure each person feels welcome and at home in our office. We have the best doctors and team members, and we’re all committed to making our patients smile during visits. I assist patients with insurance and account questions, set appointments, and answer treatment questions. I also process insurance claims and statements. I want to make patients look forward to coming to see us; we look forward to seeing them!

I grew up here in South Austin, where I met my husband Rob. We live in Kyle with our two teenage daughters. Our family enjoys being outdoors: camping, floating the river, and listening to music

We serve the most amazing people, and I look forward to each person’s visits. It’s fun to catch up on what’s happened since they were last here and talk about their plans. I work one-to-one with patients, to help improve their oral health. While I take X-rays, clean their teeth, and offer periodontal scalings and gum therapy, I teach each patient about their mouth. I want them to understand why it’s important to have great oral health and how to achieve it.

In my spare time, I enjoy being with my husband and two sons. I often try new, adventurous restaurants in town and love local theater productions and concerts.



Registered Dental Hygienist

I have been with SFD for over 10 years. I truly love my job and the relationships I get to build with patients of all ages. I provide preventative and therapeutic care, while educating patients individually to meet their specific needs. Following my patients as they grow and progress from a diseased state to health is the most fulfilling part of my job.

My husband and I live in Buda with our young daughter and two pit bull fur-babies. In my free time I enjoy being outdoors with my family and friends. I also volunteer with school-aged programs, to promote preventive oral care.

I find the greatest satisfaction when patients realizes their efforts toward caring for their oral health has made them healthier and more self-confident! Seeing a patient assume control of his or her dental hygiene and become active in caring about dental health is exciting! While providing a range of preventive care, I educate patients about oral hygiene. Together, we find the best home care products and processes to keep their smiles healthy and beautiful.

I was born and raised in Austin and married my college sweetheart. We have two boys, a German shepherd, and a 20-year old Yellow Cheek Amazon parrot. Our family loves sporting events: NFL games, US soccer, and boxing in Vegas. Don’t forget to wear a mouthguard if you’re participating in contact sports!

Registered Dental Hygienist

Kera is pleased to be part of the wonderful SFD team! The opportunity to build human connections while providing education and preventative care is her favorite aspect of her profession. She hopes that you feel welcomed, encouraged, loved and cared for while you are in her chair.

She may not have been born in TX but she is one who got here as quickly as she could! Austin has been a particularly good fit for her and her dachshunds, Lancelot and Zelda. She keeps busy painting art commissions, going on volunteer trips abroad, and styling doggy haircuts and color. She is looking forward to getting to know you.

Front Office Staff

I’m happiest when I’m able to really help a patient, whether I’m finding an appointment time that works with their busy life, answering insurance questions, or setting their mind at ease. At Simons Family Dental Center, everything we do is about patient comfort, including our customer service! I greet and check in patients, update their records, and verify their insurance.

I’ve studied ballet since I was four and have taught it for more than 20 years. My daughter Heather is in high school and has aspirations to become a professional ballerina. We both love spending time at the beach in my hometown of Corpus Christi, whenever we can.



Front Desk Staff

I enjoy meeting new people and learning about their lives. It’s a great feeling to come to Simons Family Dental Center knowing my day will be spent helping people! We have a wonderful team and amazing doctors, and everyone works together to make our patients smile. I verify patients’ insurance, schedule visits, and check out patients at the end of their visit.

I’m very family oriented and have six children, including two adopted daughters. I love spending time with them, as well as with my red-nosed pit, Bebe.



Registered Dental Assistant

I like meeting new people, making sure they are comfortable, and helping them learn that a visit here is nothing to worry about. When I can help patients relax and feel safe, then I know they will have positive thoughts about visiting us! I set up and break down the rooms, sterilize equipment, and take X-rays. I also provide chairside assistance: helping the doctor with procedures while making sure our patient is comfortable in the chair.

I’m a single mom of a young son, Gabriel. I’m a jewelry designer and am artistic. I enjoy music, and being outdoors. I have traveled many places and grew up in both El Salvador and New Orleans.

I am so excited for my career in the dental field. I assist in both pediatric and general dentistry, which gives me the best of both worlds. Simons Family Dental Center gives me an opportunity to put smiles on our patients faces and comfort in their hearts. I believe dental health is important, and I enjoy educating our patients.



Registered Dental Assistant and Front Office Staff

I enjoy working in the dental field, especially pediatric dentistry. I strive to make our patients feel comfortable. I love my job and the relationships I get to build with patients and their families. I am also part of the front office staff where I greet patients and verify insurance benefits.

I was born here in Austin. I keep busy with my daughter and her school, gymnastics, and ballet classes. I value health, love animals, and photography. We have fun with our three dogs, a guinea pig and a turtle.
