Michelle has been working in dentistry for over 24 years and is part of the front office team at Turtle Creek Dental Associates. She is a registered dental assistant and Invisalign certified. Michelle enjoys helping patients get the help they want and making them feel better and more confident. Away from the office, she loves spending time with her family, including her miniature schnauzers, Daisy and Pepper. She also likes going camping and being out at a lake.
Blanca has been a dental assistant with the Turtle Creek Dental Associates since 2011. She has over 20 years experience in the dental field. Her experience ranges from general and cosmetic dentistry, endodontics, dentures and partials to orthodontics and Invisalign cases. She loves working with the staff whom she sees as her second family and enjoys seeing the smiles on our patients' faces knowing she took part in it. When not at work, Blanca enjoys the outdoors with her husband and 4 silly kids, whose craziness keeps her sane.
Carolyn is a recent addition to the team, bringing with her 17 years of dental hygiene experience and a bright, warm personality to make you feel instantly at home and teeth well taken care of.
A country girl at heart, Carolyn enjoys time outside the city at home with her husband spending time on home improvement projects, cooking up dinner for friends, and taking care of her canines ---- 2 yr old Boxer "Rocco" and 3 yr old Black mouth Cur/Bulldog mix "Gauge".
Carolyn has a passion for people and their dental health. She's cared for patients in DFW and Hamilton, TX, across the US facilitating our military's check-ups, and abroad serving the people of Jamaica and Nicaragua.
Carly’s passion for dentistry began on a mission trip in Swaziland, Africa. While treating children in need, she fell in love with the dental field and knew she wanted to be able to help people for years to come. Today, Carly has been a hygienist for over 5 years, loves meeting new people, assisting them achieve their optimal oral health, and helping people feel confident about their smiles. She loves working with the fantastic team at Turtle Creek Dental and she is confident in Dr. Avendanio's ability to provide exceptional customer care. She also believes that we have “the world’s best patients.”
When Carly is not at the office, you will likely catch her in a yoga studio, traveling the world, or at Mutts with her little Yorkie. She hopes that she always portrays that the most important things in her life are her love for God, family, and friends. She looks forward to getting up every day to help people smile.
