Passionate About Dentistry & Improving Patients Lives Meet the Pendergrass & Wilkie Dentistry Team
I love making our patients happy, by working with them to create great oral health and beautiful smiles. My job duties are patient-focused: I clean teeth, take dental X-rays, and educate our patients about their oral health and how to keep their mouths healthy between visits, through proper home care routines. Away from the office, I love camping and traveling, spending time with my family and my boyfriend, and I’m passionate about animals. In fact, I’ve been a pet groomer for more than 13 years and I live with three cats.
I love meeting our new patients and developing relationships with them, and I love seeing the patients I’ve come to know over the years, too. Each day here brings lots of good conversations and I’m always smiling. I clean patients’ teeth, take X-rays, and spend time teaching them about good home oral hygiene processes, to keep their teeth and gums in great shape. In my free time, you’ll find me with my family, including my husband and two beautiful children, and friends. We watch movies, go to Palo Duro Canyon or to the playground, and enjoy dinners together.
The bond I form with each of my patients is special to me. I love that they trust me to care for their oral health and allow me to be a part of their lives. My days are spent with our patients, taking X-rays, cleaning their teeth, and helping them understand oral health and the best way to maintain it at home, through proper brushing, flossing, and good nutrition. Outside of work, my husband and I are very active with the Central Church of Christ. He and I are empty nesters, with our two children away at college, but we do have two great pups that share our home.
Building a relationship with each patient is very important to me. I love those special connections and the process of getting to know each other, while I tend to their oral health needs. I help patients understand the right way to maintain their teeth and gums between visits, clean teeth, and take dental X-rays. When I’m not working, you’ll often find me biking, gardening, reading, walking, hiking, or spending time with my family, including my husband, three daughters, five grandchildren, and two cats..
Over time, my patients and I develop personal relationships, which mean the world to me. I look forward to their visits and hearing about what’s been happening with their families and in their lives. My work day is focused on providing patient care, including cleaning teeth, taking X-rays, and educating patients about the importance of oral health and how it’s connected to overall health. In my personal life, my daughter and I are a team. We’re involved in many community, church, and school activities, and love anything that can be done outside. It makes us happy to do and share all that life brings to us.
The long-lasting relationships I form with our patients makes me love my job. I have enjoyed visiting with each patient and getting to know them throughout my years here. I’m married with two adult daughters and three amazing grandchildren. I love spending time with my family, reading, and going to the lake during the summer.
