Dental Hygienist

Gelvia was born in Lawton, Oklahoma and raised in Dallas, Texas. Gelvia considers herself a southern Texas girl. She loves country living and cooking. Gelvia has been in the dental field for more than eight years. She started off as a registered dental assistant and decided to further her career in dental hygiene. She graduated dental school in Jan. 2014. The number one thing that inspired Gelvia was the beauty in ones smile and how much confidence it can bring to a person. Her goal is to treat every patient as family and educate them about their oral health to the point that they are able to share what they learned with others. She believes it may not change the world to one patient, but it can change the patient’s world. Gelvia has been with her husband for seven years and has two daughters. Her genuine care and energy is what we love most. We are ecstatic to have Gelvia as a part our team.
