Your Dental Team – Rockwall, TX
Experience, Compassion, & Skill
Some of our team members have been with Dr. McNew for 15-20 years, which means they know a thing or two about running a dental office! Thanks to our staff, your appointments will flow by seamlessly from check-in to checkout, all your questions will be answered, and even informing your payment options will be 100% stress-free. After your first appointment, you’ll feel like you’re visiting old friends whenever you come to see us, but first, you can start getting to know everyone below.
Cindy, Office Manager
Cindy’s career in the dental field spans well over two full decades, with most of that time spent right here at Dr. McNew’s dental office. She attended Eastfield College and is also certified through the Scheduling Institute and Smart Training. What she enjoys most about her job is getting to know the patients so well over time.
Originally from Mesquite, Cindy has a daughter who is currently attending Texas Tech and a son who is studying automotive mechanics at UTI. Her husband works as a massage therapist. When she isn’t busy at work, her favorite hobbies include spending quality time with her family, reading books, and traveling. Her favorite vacation spot so far is Costa Rica!
Katie, Appointment Coordinator/ Dental Assistant
Katie’s career in the dental field spans over five years so far. After studying at Georgia Perimeter College, she attended East Texas Dental Assisting School. Today, what she enjoys most about being a part of Dr. McNew’s dental office is getting to work with such wonderful women who feel just like family. The patients are awesome too!
Originally from Duluth, GA, Katie has a son named Nikolas and a kitty named Tim Tebow. In her spare time, she enjoys going to the gym, running, and cooking while enjoying a glass of wine. Here’s an interesting story about her: when she was little, M&M’s had a promotion where if you found the grey M&M, you would win $1,000,000. She actually found it…and then promptly ate it after asking her mom for permission. They found out about the contest a week later. Whoops!
Briana, Dental Assistant
After studying at Collin County Community College, Briana completed her training at Houston Dental Assistant School. Today, she’s been working in the field for nearly five years. She loves seeing happy patients and their smiling faces every day at the dental office!
Originally from Fitchburg, MA, Briana has a quiet household that includes her husband and three fur babies. Outside of working hours, you can often find her spending quality time with her loved ones, playing disc golf, building screen-accurate Star Wars costumes, constructing gaming PC’s, and participating in charity events with the 501st Legion.
Kari, Dental Assistant
Kari is a Rockwall native, and she’s been working alongside Dr. McNew for over 23 years so far. She attended Texas A&M Commerce and has a teaching degree in addition to her RDA status. Her favorite part of being a dental assistant is an easy answer – the patients!
Kari and her husband Mike have two teenagers who are currently in high school. Most of her free time away from the dental office is taken up by their busy schedules. Other hobbies include enjoying the outdoors and hanging out with their family’s various pets. They even have a chinchilla!
