Dr. Stapleton definitely couldn’t accomplish as much as he does for his patients every day without the support of such a talented and friendly staff! Lori, Nicole, and the rest of the team keep our day-to-day operations running very smoothly while also helping every person who walks through the front door of our dental office feel right at home. If you’d like to learn more about their friendly faces, just keep reading below:

Office Manager

Lori’s career in the dental field spans well over two decades now. She earned her Associates from Houston Community College and really loves her work family here at MDRN Dental, as well as being able to form such close relationships with each of the patients.

A Houston native, Lori spends most of her free time outside of work with horses! She regularly participates in horse rescue projects and is a talented horseback rider as well.

Recall Coordinator

Nicole is originally from the Nacogdoches area, and she attended Texas State University for her education. Her favorite part of this position is being able to help patients and getting to know them so well over time too.

Nicole is the proud soon-to-be wife of Dr. Stapleton! In fact, their proposal story went viral and was on several news stations, as well as in Vogue – be sure to ask her about it when you come in. Outside of working hours, they really enjoy traveling together.

Dental Hygienist

Kelly is originally from Chicago and attended Texas A&M for her Bachelor of Arts before completing her dental degree at Harper College in 2014. Today, her favorite part of this job is getting to know her patients so well and helping them establish great oral hygiene habits!

Outside of work, Kelly’s interests include astronomy, history, and going to the beach. She also has a pet jellyfish! Because of this, a lot of her friends call her “Kellyfish.”

Dental Assistant

Sandy is a Houston native, and she’s been working in oral healthcare for nearly 40 years! Seeing patients happy with their new smiles makes every day worthwhile. She attended the Bryman Dental Assistant School for her education and is a Texas Registered Dental Assistant.

Sandy comes from a large, fun, loving, and LOUD family. In her free time, she enjoys biking, power walking, playing with her four dogs, and camping. She’s also a big fan of road trips!
