Ale – Registered Dental Assistant
I started my dental assisting journey when I enrolled in Dr. Gardner’s dental assisting program in the summer of 2017. We learned with hands-on training and participation in Dentistry from the Heart; Dr. Gardner’s free event for the community. During that event I discovered my passion for dentistry and helping others recover their smile. I’m very fortunate Dr. Gardner and the rest of the team gave me the opportunity to join this amazing team!
I am bilingual and it’s a pleasure to be able to translate and communicate with our Spanish speaking patients. We strive to deliver the best dental care every day!
I have one daughter, Camilla. My hobbies are working out, traveling and spending time with my family and friends.
Carissa – Hygiene Coordinator
I am currently the Hygiene Coordinator. I have been in the healthcare industry for almost 3 years and began working with Dr. Gardner in 2017. I am excited for the opportunity to work with such an awesome, well educated, caring group of people and I enjoy helping others. It’s fun getting to know the patients and build relationships.
I currently have my Associates Degree in Applied Science and continue to pursue my dental career by attending the Montgomery County Dental Assisting School. I am also CPR Certified and have experience in medical coding.
I was born and raised in Mississippi and moved to Texas in 2016. I am happily married to my husband of 3 years, Lukas, and we have a 3 year old daughter, Avery. During my free time I enjoy reading books, being outdoors, and spending time with my family. I also enjoy checking out all the local festivals.
Jessie – New Patient Coordinator & Marketing Director
I’ve been part of Dr. Gardner’s team since 2009 and simply love it! It’s a pleasure serving and getting to know our patients.
Our team is constantly learning and dedicated to make each and every visit pleasant and comfortable. Our office is truly one-of-a-kind in treatments offered, quality of service and standard of care.
I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in 2009 with a bachelor’s degree in journalism. I met my husband during my last semester in college and we married in 2011. We have three awesome kiddos, Carter, Jackson and Kennedy, and a little Yorkie named Pippey. When I’m not at the office I enjoy spending time with family, working out and cooking.
Rachel B. – Registered Dental Hygienist & Team Leader
I am from Montgomery and graduated from Conroe High School in 2000 and moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado a few years later. While living there I completed a dental assisting program and after moving back home I assisted for 6 years. During that time, I continued my career in becoming a dental hygienist. Dr. Gardner gave me the opportunity to become part of our team at Conroe Comprehensive Dental Center in 2010, even though he knew I would be leaving in about a year’s time to go to dental hygiene school. It proved to me his view on education and growth. After graduating in 2013, he rehired me knowing that our second location in Montgomery would be opening in the near future. It was a blessing to come out of school and be welcomed back in an office that I can call home.
Dr. Gardner is passionate about continuing education for our team in order to provide the absolute best experiences, care and dentistry for our patients. Our group is one of a kind and we aim to exceed our patient’s expectations. It’s a privilege to work in an environment of loving co-workers and I consider them extended family. Becoming a dental hygienist was my goal for several years and I now strive to perfect my skills, continue to grow in my profession, and develop long lasting friendships with our patients.
Outside of the office I am a mother of one amazing son. He is in 11 years old, in 6th grade and is my greatest blessing in this life. We have two dogs, Blue and Sassy, and a bearded dragon named Skeeter. I enjoy bible study, spending time with my family and friends, learning new recipes, camping, hiking, biking, nature and traveling when I have the opportunity.
Stephanie – Receptionist
I’ve been a part of Dr. Gardner’s team since August of 2017 and have loved it since day one! I am the receptionist at our Montgomery office and really enjoy being able to welcome our patients as they come in for their visits. It is a privilege to work with such a great group of people that truly works together as a team! I get the opportunity to see the genuine care Dr. Gardner provides and can see that he has a real passion for what he does. He does an amazing job of making our patients feel comfortable, safe, and well informed of their treatment. I am very grateful for the opportunity I have working for such an amazing practice!
I am originally from Kingwood and moved to the Montgomery area in 2016. I love lake life! I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend/best friend, Randy and our Springer Spaniel pup, Emma! We love doing anything outdoors especially if it’s on or near water. We recently got a bass boat and go fishing regularly. You can find me by the pool almost any day of the summer and I also love watching our Astros!
Susan – Financial Coordinator
I’m very excited to be given the opportunity to work with this group of people. I’m very impressed with all the employees here and how their main concern is making the patients feel at home and comfortable during their visit. We want this to be the best experience they’ve ever had during a dental visit.
I enjoy traveling especially if it’s to the beach where I can relax, enjoy the sunshine and read a good book. I also love spending time with my grandchildren.
Tana – Receptionist
I joined the team in 2018 as the receptionist at our Conroe location. I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with such amazing, passionate individuals. I enjoy being able to get to know our patients and feel confident that they will get the care they deserve.
I am from Magnolia and am currently attending college to pursue an associate degree in business. I love spending time with family, friends and traveling when given the opportunity. I also enjoy being able to just relax and watch a good movie.
Tenille – Registered Dental Hygienist
I have been with Conroe Comprehensive Dental Center since 2001 and, quite honestly, I wouldn’t want to work anywhere else! We have the most amazing doctors and staff around. Our team trains extensively so we can provide 5-Star customer service, and it doesn’t take long to see how we differ from the majority of dental offices today. We strive for excellence in everything we do, from the “New Patient Experience” (where we actually take the time to get to know you on a personal level in addition to addressing your needs and concerns)…to our “Continued Care” visits (where we take as much time as needed to perform our services to the best of our abilities.)
As a hygienist, I take my role as “dental disease prevention specialist” very seriously. I am very happy to offer advanced services to combat periodontal disease, like the perio laser, which addresses the disease on a microscopic level. I tailor my professional recommendations to meet the specific needs of each patient, because no two patients are alike. I am very passionate about what I do, and consider myself an educator and a motivator, and will never criticize or lecture my patients. I love each and every one of my patients, and take care of them as if they were a member of my own family!
And on the subject of family, I am happily married with a beautiful daughter and wonderful step-son… and Christmas 2015 we welcomed the furriest member of our family, a Labradoodle named Simon.
