Lauren

Scheduling Coordinator

I graduated in 2015 with my RDA from Grayson County College. I work alongside Dr. Gates, assisting him during procedures and making sure our patients are comfortable and understand their treatment. Getting to know our patients on a personal level is not only enjoyable, but it also helps me provide a more customized level of care. I love seeing our patients smile and actually enjoy coming to the dentist!

I’m married to my best friend, Clay. We have a six-year-old girl who keeps us very busy. We enjoy being outdoors with family during our spare time. We own cattle and love riding down on warm days with friends and family.

Kaley

Dental Hygienist

I began my career as a dental assistant in 2011, during which time I earned my Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Oklahoma State University. I decided to go into dental hygiene, earning my Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from Baylor College of Dentistry in 2016. My favorite part of being a dental hygienist is making my patients feel confident in their smiles and learning how to keep their mouths and overall health optimal. I enjoy getting to know my patients and families and them getting to know me. I have loved meeting my patients and their children and watching them grow up.

I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Dalton, for five years. We have one daughter, Caroline, who is two. Being a mom is my favorite job and such a blessing! In my free time, I always try to find a way to get outdoors and run. I have currently run six half marathons and am training for my first full marathon. We attend Anchor Church in McKinney and stay as involved as we can in our community church and small groups.
