Your Front Desk Staff

Financial Coordinator

I enjoy helping people achieve their dental health goals. We serve an amazing group of patients, and I love watching families grow and change over the years. It’s truly an honor to help such wonderful people develop healthy, beautiful smiles and become their friends at the same time. I work with patients so they get the most from their dental insurance. I also help find financial terms that work with a patient’s budget, so he or she gets the needed care, when it’s needed.

My late husband and I, along with our two teenage children, relocated to Austin the same year Dr. Powell and Dr. Tiller graduated dental school. Our paths crossed by fate and I joined their new practice. Days off, you’ll find me gardening or spending time with my four grandbabies.

Scheduling Coordinator

I love helping patients understand their dental needs and how we can help them. Each person has their own concerns and goals, and our doctors and team understand that. By offering individualized care, we’re able to improve a person’s health and smile! I ensure patients get the most from their insurance benefits and coordinate financial arrangements. I also handle scheduling and am responsible for our social media outreach.

My husband of 25 years, Paul, along with our daughter Daniela, and son Michael, moved to Austin from New York. When I’m not working, I’m busy running my scrapbooking business. Leisure time is spent walking my miniature schnauzer, Lizzy, bicycle riding, and gardening.

Hygiene Coordinator

I love working with our patients to help them get the best dental care for their family’s smiles. It’s fun to be in a positive environment where we all concentrate on making patients feel relaxed and welcome. Their smiles and thanks for making everything seamless is rewarding. I schedule hygiene appointments, verify insurance, answer our phones, and schedule and confirm visits. I also handle our emails. I’m busy, but never too busy for a chat!

My husband and I enjoy golfing whenever possible, and are very involved with our church. We’re blessed with five grandchildren, all in the Austin area, and love supporting their activities. We also have five fur babies: three dogs and two cats.

Registered Dental Hygienist

Working as a hygienist means building relationships with each person and learning about their oral health needs and concerns. Then I work with them to find the solutions that are right for them. My goal is to help patients understand the important connection between dental health and systemic health. It’s a great feeling when a patient makes changes in their life and comes for a recall visit with a healthy mouth!

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband and I have three daughters who keep us on our toes!

Registered Dental Hygienist

I love my patients. Seeing them, catching up on news about their families and achievements, and sharing stories of my own, makes my days full. As I work with a patient, cleaning teeth, assessing oral and overall health, and placing sealants and applying fluoride, I educate them. Each person has their own dental health concerns. By focusing on their unique needs and lifestyle, I’m able to help them take control of the health of their smile.

My husband Ryan and I moved to the area from Pennsylvania in 2014. We love exploring and finding new places. We recently purchased a dated and neglected home in Pflugerville and are renovating it. We’re excited to be preparing it for ourselves and our future foster children! We currently have two big dogs and six crazy hens running around our backyard.

Registered Dental Hygienist

I love working with my patients.  It is a privilege to be your hygienist.  The relationships and friendships that are established are enriching and rewarding.  Enriching in that I partner with people I care about to assess their individual cares, and concerns.  We work together to discover ways to best achieve optimal dental and overall health.  With their partnership in utilizing the tools and education they receive, the rewards are seen in the success of their achievements.

I have shared the joy of life with my sweetheart Joe for 21 years.  Our daughter, Meghann, is an audiologist and lives in Asheville, NC.  We love spending time together and with our extended family.  We are very involved in our church and  I love to read, study, outdoor activities, and travel.

Erica P.

Registered Dental Hygienist

When I was a child, I spent a lot of time in the dental chair, and I learned first-hand the importance of preventive care. My dream of becoming a hygienist began then and there. After achieving my goal of becoming a hygienist, I found the most rewarding part of my job to be helping my patients feel comfortable while taking care of their dental needs. Providing a positive experience is one of our main goals as a team. I feel so blessed to work at such a welcoming, caring office, full of people who have our patients’ best interests at heart.

I have been married for eight years and am blessed with two boys and a little girl. I love spending time with my family, running with our triple stroller, and working on crafts.

Registered Dental Hygienist

My favorite part of being a dental hygiest is helping patients with previous dental fears feel safe, comfortable and in charge of their oral health.  I am passionate about equipping people with the knowledge and skills to better care for themselves by creating individualized care for each patient.  I also really enjoy the relationships that build as a result.  I recieved my dental hygiene degree from Blinn College and have a Bechelor in Psychology from the University of Texas. Because of this, my heart is half Aggie and half Longhorn!

My husband and I have lived in Austin for over 5 years and we have a handsome German Short-Haired Pointer named Remi.  We love to travel and play outdoors as much as we can.

Registered Dental Assistant

I assist Drs. Powell and Tiller in all clinical situations and educate patients regarding their dental procedures. It is fulfilling for me to help people achieve a healthy smile, but I also want them to enjoy their dental experience. I try to help patients overcome their anxiety and make them feel comfortable. I also really enjoy working with a fun, caring team that strongly believes in providing the best dental care and dental experience.

I have a wonderful husband and three great children: a daughter and two sons. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my children and husband, as well as reading and gardening.

Registered Dental Assistant

I love meeting and growing strong relationships with our patients. As we talk about their families and interests, sharing stories and laughter, we become friends. Helping people I care about develop great dental health and wonderful smiles is incredibly rewarding. I make sure patients have positive, comfortable visits. I prepare them to see the doctor, explain what will happen, and answer questions. During the procedure, I support our patient while assisting the doctor.

When I’m not working, chances are I’m with my spouse and two wonderful children, or spending time with friends.

Registered Dental Assistant

I love working with each of our patients, to make everyone feel welcome, safe, and comfortable. Our practice cares for each patient as we would a member of our family: supporting and encouraging them to take control of their oral health. I help patients during visits — seating them, explaining what will happen, and preparing them to see the doctor. Then I work chairside, to assist the doctor. I also oversee our sterilization and infection control standards.

Outside of work, I love spending time with my husband of more than 30 years. We have two children, both of whom are married, and two — almost three — grandsons. I enjoy music and dancing, bicycling and fishing, and traveling, cooking, and taking Zumba classes.
