Tammy K. - Dental Hygienist
I graduated in 1977 from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Dental Hygiene. I have held a license to practice in Minnesota, North Carolina, Texas and Colorado.
As a military spouse I have had the opportunity to work in many dental settings. I worked for the government when we were stationed in Germany, hospital dentistry with Scott and White where I worked with a Periodontist , a Prosthodontist who specialized in implants and multiple family oriented dental practices.
I love the profession of dental hygiene because of all the great people I get to meet. I also love the fact that I can make a difference in someone's life. There is so much satisfaction when I hear how much a patient enjoys coming to their appointment.
I married my high school sweetheart in 1977. The flexibility of being a dental hygienist allows me to travel and see my kids. I enjoy skiing, reading,and cooking.
Vanessa R. - Front Office / Registered Dental Assistant
I grew up in the surrounding area and have a love for the Texas Hill Country. My experience in the dental field is over 20 yrs, working all areas of the practice from the front office to the back office learning this was the field for me. Moving back to the Hill Country 3 yrs ago brought me to Lifetime Dental. I love working with our group of dental professionals and Dr Hatcher. We help one another each day to bring the best dental care to our patients. There is not anything I enjoy more than changing a person's life by their smile. When we bring confidence, happiness and beauty to a patient it makes my day.
In my free time I enjoy life with my family. My husband and children love the outdoors. Some of our favorite things to do on a day off is kayaking, gardening, camping, fishing, and any type of sport activity.
Sierra A. - Registered Dental Assistant
I have been with Lifetime Dental since 2008. After moving away for a couple of years, I returned back to the Hill Country and knew I had to return to the practice I call home. I have had many great years at Lifetime Dental and have witnessed many lives changed which is why I love the filed so much.
On my free time I enjoy traveling around the state with my wonderful husband and miniature dachshund. We are always off on a new adventure visiting state parks, hiking, boating, fishing, you name it.
Lana S. - Dental Hygienist
I have been in the dental field for 28 yrs. I started as an assistant while still in high school for a small town dentist and was trained in office. I continued to work as an assistant for the next ten years. I fell in love with the dental field. I graduated from Florida Community College of Jacksonville in 1999 with an A.S. in Dental Hygiene and worked for the same dentist in Fernandina Beach, FL for ten years as a hygienist. In May 2013, my husband, son and I moved to Boerne from Florida. After being at the same office for so many years I was searching to find my "dental home" here in Texas. October 2017 will be my two year anniversary working for Dr. Hatcher at Boerne Lifetime Dental.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here and getting to know the wonderful people of Boerne.
Faylon C. - Registered Dental Assistant
I have always been fascinated by the human mouth. Being a mother coaching my son on proper hygiene steps and how to take care of your teeth led me to attend school for Dental Assisting. I am new to Lifetime Dental and already feel like part of the family. What I enjoy most about my job is being able to contribute to provide a satisfying visit to the dentist.
In my free time I enjoy many things like baking, watching netflix and spending time with my son and family doing outdoor activities.
