Gina H.-Dental Hygienist
I grew up in a small town in west Texas, and moved to Boerne in 2004 after obtaining my Texas license to practice dental hygiene. I received my training at the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio. I have been with Lifetime Dental since 2010. I enjoy spending time with my husband and three beautiful daughters. Favorite activities include visiting state parks, hiking and kayaking.
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.
Lana S. -Dental Hygienist
I have been in the dental field for 30+ 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. I joined Lifetime Dental in 2015 and have thoroughly enjoyed my time here and getting to know the wonderful people of Boerne.

I am a native Houstonian who fell in love with the Texas Hill Country. I joined Lifetime Dental in 2017 and quickly fell in love with Boerne and the people who live here. I am a certified medical and dental coding and insurance specialist. I'm also a former Texas registered dental assistant. I have worked in nearly every aspect of dentistry since 2008, and enjoy this field very much! Insurance billing is my favorite part of working in the front office. I enjoy helping patients understand their insurance benefits and simplifying the financial aspect/process of dental care. I also enjoy time with my two lovely daughters.

I joined Lifetime Dental in 2019 and love my new office home. I commute from San Antonio to Boerne and enjoy driving against the traffic. I have been in dentistry for twenty-five years.

Schasta C. - Front Office/Dental Assistant
I joined lifetime dental in 2019. I am originally from Michigan but moved to Texas about 9 years ago and have loved it ever since. I come from a family of 10 and my mom made sure we went to the dentist every 6 months, which kick started my interest in dentistry. I have been a dental assistant for 6 years and love it! I enjoy dentistry because I love helping people and assisting them in perfecting their smile. I am happily married and have 1 daughter. Outside of dentistry I enjoy camping and cooking.
