Fabiola Cortez, Registered Dental Assistant
As one of our most recent additions to our team here at Kessler Park Dental, Fabiola instantly loved our atmosphere and the positive feeling that our practice brings to dental care. She graduated from South Grand Prairie High School and Mountain View College before she studied at Dallas Dental Assistant School.
When she’s not in our office helping patients, Fabiola likes spending time with her family of four. She also loves traveling and exploring new places and cultures.
Daisy, Dental Hygienist
Daisy is a Dallas native! She has more than 13 years of experience in the world of dentistry, and the last two of them have been spent right here with our team. She attended Texas Woman’s University and has her BLS certification. When asked, she shared getting to know each patient and helping them maintain their oral health are two of her favorite aspects of her job.
Daisy and her husband, Luis, have two sons. As a family, they love to spend time together and travel. Her interests outside of dentistry include working out, reading, and trying new restaurants. Here’s something
Emily, Registered Dental Assistant
Emily says that being able to help our patients feel at home and welcome is always the most rewarding part of her job. She attended the School of Health Professions while still in high school at Townview Magnet Center. This allowed her to train as a dental assistant and intern in offices so she could become an RDA by the end of her senior year. She also has her certificate in nitrous oxide monitoring.
Emily grew up in Dallas, and she likes to drink coffee every day as well as take care of her many plants at home.
Jess, Registered Dental Hygienist
Jess started working at our practice fairly recently, but she has worked in dentistry for several years before that. She attended Indiana University South Bend and is certified in basic life support, nitrous oxide monitoring, dental lasers, and iTero 5D technology, and she has even completed some training in sleep apnea. She enjoys being able to regularly connect with our patients and provide them with comfortable dental experiences.
Jess is originally from Plainfield, IL. Her parents and brother still live in the Chicago area, but her sister moved to Dallas a year and half after Jess did. In her spare time, Jess likes yoga, Pilates, and occasionally golfing. She has also spent the past few years fostering dogs with a local no-kill animal shelter. Something interesting about Jess is that she can say the alphabet backwards!
Mayra, Insurance Coordinator
Mayra has been a part of the dental world for over 20 years, and she says that knowing she has played a small part in improving someone’s quality of life and confidence is the best part of her job. Mayra is originally from California, and she has one adult daughter. When she isn’t spending time with family, she likes to travel, enjoy the outdoors, and do DIY projects at home.
