Although I was born in Springfield, MO, I grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I attended Bryan Institute to achieve my Dental Assisting Certificate and also graduated as a Real Estate Broker from Lone Star College.

I moved to Dallas Fort Worth in 1993, moved back to Oklahoma for a while and am now currently living in Arlington, TX with my husband, Jeff. I have four daughters, one son, a son-in-law, and two grandsons.

I remember my very first appointment when I was five years old, being fascinated with the dental office. Growing up, I went to the dentist every six months like clockwork. Because I enjoyed having my teeth cleaned so much it just was something that I became passionate about. I had intentions to become a dentist, but raising children was my first priority.

I have now been in the industry for more than 17 years and love interacting with patients every day.

Outside the Office: I enjoy spending time with my husband and family. I am a big sports fan and follow OU Football, the Cowboys, the Rangers, and Oklahoma Thunder. I enjoy going to concerts, watching movies, interior design, and riding the Harley with my husband. I’m also a self-proclaimed foodie.

Bucket List Item: To plan a trip to the British Isles, namely England, Ireland, Scotland, and the Isle of Man.

I enjoy being part of a team who truly cares and is committed to helping people achieve their goals.

I was born and raised in Dallas, TX. I am happily married with two beautiful children and three wonderful fur babies!

Growing up, my parents really did not have the finances to provide us with the dental care we needed. This led to me having really bad teeth and low self-esteem. Through this experience, I knew I wanted to do something to help others get the confidence to smile once again.

Now, I enjoy educating patients about the importance of preventative care and maintaining their oral health.

Outside of the Office: I spend quality time with my family, love exploring new places, and shopping.

My Hero: My mother is my hero. She is the strongest woman I have ever known.

I was born and raised in Houston, TX. I now live in Dallas with my husband. I graduated with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Sociology from Texas A&M University and a Bachelors of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene from Texas A&M University College of Dentistry. With several dentists and dental hygienists in my family, I always grew up around dentistry. However, I was drawn to the field because I have always been driven to help others. My biggest goal is to educate and encourage patients to know the difference between healthy and unhealthy. I hope for my patients to strive towards healthy habits and a desire for bettering their oral and systemic health. I am a compassionate and detail-oriented person. I love building relationships with patients and providing the highest quality of care in the most comfortable setting.

Outside of the Office: I enjoy quality time with my husband and playing with our dog. I also like crafting and sewing, spending time with family and friends, and eating different foods.

Interesting Fact: I have a black belt in Tae Kwon Do.

I am originally from a small town west of Fort Worth. I just moved from Austin to Midlothian with my son to be with my boyfriend and his two sons. My family lives in the DFW area too. We are very close, so love spending time together.

I was initially interested in dentistry from having braces as a teenager and just thought everyone was so nice and happy with their job. They seemed so satisfied helping others achieve a beautiful smile.

I enjoy helping people and guiding them toward improved health. I have a willingness to help in any aspect of dentistry, whether it is assisting, front office, or hygiene. I always want to know more and help in any way that I can.

I have a passion for my work and my patients. My patients and my team put their trust in me to do my best, and I am always striving every day to learn and to be better than I was the day before. I love my patients, my team, and I LOVE teeth!

Outside of the Office: I enjoy spending time with family and friends, watching my son play baseball, country dancing, cookouts, fishing, camping with my boyfriend, and anything outside or at the beach or lake!

I grew up in the Dallas Fort Worth area and am married to Dr. Ryan Schmidgall. Together, we have a son named Luke who is our pride and joy.

I decided to leave my job in marketing and advertising after seeing first hand the impact dentistry can have on people’s lives. I also enjoy the close relationships we are able to form with our patients and love working in a field that is all about caring for people.

I am a team player and problem-solver, so I like to make sure everyone is informed and things run smoothly.

Outside of the Office: I have a young child so that takes up the majority of my time – he is such a blessing and a joy! Our church family at Watermark Fort Worth is also extremely important to us too.

Favorite Quote: My faith is hugely important to my family and me. So it would be Ephesians 2:4-5!

I absolutely love this whole TEAM! Dr. Schmidgall is an amazing, smart, and caring doctor. Every time I walk in there, I feel like I’m in a safe place and a warm home. They make you feel special and will go above and beyond to get you through and understand your appointment. This is my dental home. I love it, and will not go anywhere else.
