Meet Our Team
Vicky, Registered Dental Hygienist
I have been a registered dental hygienist since 1981, and I’ve been working alongside Dr. Kessner since January 1998. I am a proud Texas Aggie and a graduate of the hygiene school at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston.
My professional goals are to be educated and proficient in updated dental techniques, equipment and computer technology. I frequently attend seminars to advance my knowledge so that I can provide the best dental care to our patients. I strive to serve our patients with genuine compassion, care and flexibility and truly feel as if our patients are family.
I am married with three grown children that have been and continue to be the most beautiful part of my life. My husband and I take every opportunity to spend time with them traveling and doing what we can to give back to the community. I enjoy spending time with my family, my dog Holly and my office teammates. We are more than co-workers. We are part of each other’s lives and each other’s families. We work together to bring quality dental care, comfort and a warm welcoming environment to our patients.
Karen, Business Manager
I am a native born Texan and have lived in many areas of the state. My family is a big part of who I am and I travel to see them as often as possible. In my spare time I love to explore the local trails on my bike. I love to travel and bring my giant Labradoodle Ziggy with me whenever possible and together we explore and discover new things.
I have worked for Dr. Kessner since October 1999 and I am very grateful for the opportunity he has given me to follow my passion to help people. Over the years I feel like our office is my second home and our patients have become a big part of my life. I am also a Registered Dental Assistant and was Dr. Kessner’s Chairside Assistant for 9 years prior to my current position as Office Manager. I maintain my registration for Dental Assisting and continue to be well educated in all aspects of Dentistry. I love to smile, so what better way to spend my time than by trying to help others achieve a beautiful smile.
Kim, Registered Dental Assistant
I was born and raised in Dallas. My parents are originally from Chihuahua, Mexico so I am very fortunate to be fluent in Spanish as well as English. I am married and have three children. I spend most of my spare time raising my three children and our puppy Marilynn, a miniature Chihuahua. My son plays baseball so we spend a lot of time in the stands cheering him on. I love the outdoors and enjoy camping and hiking with my family. My sister lives in Colorado so we enjoy visiting with her during the holidays.
I have been a Registered Dental Assistant since 1998. I have worked for Dr. Kessner since October 2010 as his Chairside Assistant. We have a great rapport and I love being his second set of hands. My objective at work every day is to make my patients feel relaxed, happy and welcomed.
Eileen, Business Assistant
I started working part-time in Dr. Kessner’s practice in 1997 as a data entry clerk. I have had the opportunity to grow with the practice and I am now proficient in all front office duties including insurance processing, patient contact, scheduling appointments and answering phone calls. My favorite part of every day is working side by side with our amazing team to make our patients feel comfortable and welcomed.
I was raised on the east coast and moved to Texas as a newlywed. We fell in love with the people and culture of the Lone Star State and chose to plant our family’s roots here. I enjoy traveling with my husband whenever possible, movies, reading, volunteer work and spending time with our children and grandchildren who are all native Texans!
