Welcome to our practice! As part of our Front Office Team, Mary Lou and I look forward to meeting you. I have worked with Dr. McDonald for 19 years. He is a compassionate doctor with incredible talent and loyalty to our patients and to our staff. I enjoy assisting our patients with all of their insurance needs, helping them to maximize their benefit. My husband and I are avid Dallas Cowboy fans. Go Cowboys!

HI! Shelly and I look so forward to having you in our office! As part of the Front Office Team, making the patient feel welcome and appreciated is my highest priority. I have worked in the dental field for over 20 years, and Dr. McDonald and I feel strongly that creating a trusting relationship with each patient is extremely important. Dr. McDonald is a highly skilled and talented doctor, and it is an honor for me to represent him at his front office. I am truly a "Hill Country Girl", born and raised in the Texas Hill Country. My husband and I have been married for 36 years, and we enjoy planning and hosting family get-togethers. One of my favorite hobbies is baking!

Welcome! I am the Dental Hygienist for our practice. My patients say that I have a gentle hand in appointments, but I am equally as dedicated to being thorough. Our patients' well-being is important to me, and I care for each one to the best of my ability. I completed a Hygiene Mastery Course in 2004, and I have served as a Delegate for the Texas Dental Hygiene Association for the past 2 years. I love the volunteer work I do for "Give Kids a Smile" and "Sealants Across Texas". When I'm not in the office, I enjoy shopping, entertaining friends, various sports activities, sewing and quilting. I enjoy fishing and hunting, too!
