It has been my life-long dream to be a dentist. I owe this to my parents, both of whom are dedicated and conscientious dentists and are held in the highest regard by their peers and patients. I knew I had made the right career choice the day I treated my first patient.
I graduated from NYU College of dentistry in 2004.
The large variety of patients I treated in New York allowed me to interact with people from all walks of life. My patients were at different levels of dental awareness, education, and home dental care. This challenged my problem-solving skills and I learned to adapt dental treatment to a particular patient’s condition and to bring complex dental treatment plans, treatment options, and decisions down to a level that they could understand and could feel comfortable with.
I did a two-year General Practice Residency at UTHSC San Antonio Dental School from 2004 to 2006. The GPR expanded my horizons in patient care. In the University Hospital, I treated patients that needed dental treatment before major surgeries, chemotherapy, or radiation therapy. I also provided dental care to mentally or physically handicapped patients under general anesthesia in the OR. These patients would not have received dental care otherwise and had an increased quality of life as a result of the care. I was on call in the ER during the residency. This sharpened my diagnostic skills and people skills. I learned to think on my feet and to function on four hours of sleep!
I joined the faculty at the San Antonio Dental School as an assistant clinical professor and supervised the pre-clinical and clinical education of junior and senior dental students.
I worked for two years as an associate dentist in a multi-clinic practice in DFW, gaining valuable, real-life experience in working with patients with a variety of dental issues. I also loved working with young children and educating them and their parents about their dental health. However, I realized that I wanted to provide dental care in a much more personalized environment and Coppell Smiles was the result!
Now we are a family dental practice in Coppell, Texas. Our mission is to be the dental office you trust with the dental care of your entire family.
I am a registered dental hygienist at Coppell Smiles. Continuing to further my education, I am a proud TWU alumni who has obtained a Bachelor’s of Science in Dental Hygiene while graduating with honors and remaining an active member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated which generously serves our community. I believe that great oral hygiene is the key to overall health. I look forward to providing a warm and welcoming environment for all patients to receive the best individualized care.
I have 13 years of hygiene experience and have loved every second of it. I spend my free time outdoors either with my husband and dogs or playing with my nieces and nephews. With my attentiveness to others and helpfulness, I make even the most packed Saturday schedule a breeze at Coppell Smiles.
From the moment I graduated from UT School of Dentistry Houston in 2014, I knew this was my calling. I am passionate about being a hygienist. I believe the most rewarding part is educating patients on how to have good oral health and how to improve their care at home. When not at work my two English Bulldogs, Stella and Bams, keep me busy.
My name is Katheryn Moreno, I obtained my Bachelor of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene and Minor Degree in Health Studies in 2016 at Texas Woman’s University. I’ve been with the Coppell Smiles since 2018 and I’m truly thankful for having found a great team to work. I like talking to patients about oral hygiene and I do best in helping patients to improve their dental experience. During my free time my fiancé and I like traveling, watching movies, cooking, and planning our wedding.
My favorite part of this field is watching people’s reaction to their new dental work. It is my goal day in and day out to assist Dr. Deore in providing every patient with a smile they are proud of. I graduated from Texas Academy of Dental Assisting in Fort Worth Texas. I am a family-oriented person who loves to travel. Coppell Smiles has proven to be a second home; this office is inviting and has taught me so much since I have started. I perform ZOOM Whitening, make in-house appliances, take x-rays, assist with restorations and the front desk.
Currently, I work at the front desk as a patient coordinator. I assist with treatment planning and insurance verification. I am a graduate of CCI of Arlington and a certified Health Information Specialist, Medical Billing and Coding. I am beyond excited to start my transition to the dental field. I love to travel and spend time with my husband and four children.
