The Team at Smile Time Dental In Houston

Alicia — Hygienist

Alicia has been a part of our Smile Time Dental family since we first opened in 2009. She started her career as a registered dental assistant in 2006. Her passion has always been educating patients about oral hygiene. She followed that passion and graduated as a Dental Hygienist from The University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston with a Bachelor's of Science in Dental Hygiene in 2017. She is enthusiastic about customizing oral hygiene home care to enable her patients to have optimal oral health. In her free time she volunteers providing free dental care with the Greater Houston Dental Hygiene Association. Alicia is also very involved with her church where she has served in the children's and youth ministries.


Barbara — Administrative Assistant

Having worked in the field of dentistry for over nine years, Barbara has been a part of our family since March of 2011. She loves being able to help patients understand their complex dental insurance benefits, and being able to watch patients grow along with us! Outside of the office, Barbara greatly enjoys sports, and football, basketball, and baseball are her favorites.

“Time is free, but it is priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it, you can never get it back.”


Mindy — Dental Assistant

Mindy has been a dental assistant for over nine years, and has been a part of our family since December of 2010. She loves coming to work and spending time with our family, and she also loves to nurture patients and make them feel comfortable when they come in for dental treatment. In her spare time, Mindy loves to watch movies.

“A great attitude is like a perfect cup of coffee; don’t start your day without it.”


Marilu — Dental Assistant

Marilu has been a dental assistant for over 20 years, since graduating from Colegio Minerva in San Luis Potosi, Mexico in 1988. She has been a part of our family since 2013, and is also specially certified in nitrous oxide monitoring. Marilu loves the positive environment and working with everyone in the office toward the same goal. She also loves to watch nervous patients complete their dental work and become so happy with their final results! Outside of the office, Marilu enjoys reading, vacationing at the beach, and meeting new people.

“Think before you talk.”


Arlae — Receptionist

Arlae is our newest addition to the Smile Time Dental family. She joined us in August 2017. Arlae has 10 years of experience as a dental assistant and office receptionist. She began her journey in dentistry not knowing how much she would enjoy helping people with their dental needs. It gives her joy to know she can make a difference in someone’s life and she wouldn't trade it for any profession in the world! In her free time, Arlae likes to spend quality time with her family and she likes to cook (and eat, of course!).
