Shelby – Front Office Coordinator
I’m originally from a small town in northeast Missouri and always knew I wanted to move to a bigger city. I have a bachelor’s degree in Healthcare Administration from Culver-Stockton College.
I have been in the dental world since graduating and love building relationships with patients and helping people have a good experience in a typically stressful environment.
In my free time, I love doing yoga, reading, and spending time with friends by the pool!
Adriene – Registered Dental Assistant (RDA)
Hi, I’m Adriene Futrell. I grew up in South Florida, but I moved to Austin in 2011 from Atlanta, Georgia.
My dental career began in the military(US Army) back in 1986, so I’ve had the pleasure of working in dentistry for the past 35 years.
What I enjoy most about the dental field is being able to assist Dr. Thompson and help educate patients by applying my knowledge and experience.
My hobbies include football, football, and more importantly, football.
Marlene – Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)
I have been practicing dental hygiene for seven years and counting. My passion is providing excellent patient care and educating patients on how to improve their oral health.
In my free time, I enjoy hiking with my husband, Christian, and 11 year old husky, Kali, and going on road trips to explore new places.
Michaela – Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)
I’m originally from central Pennsylvania and completed my degree in Dental Hygiene at Pennsylvania College of Technology in Williamsport, PA. I always knew Austin was somewhere I wanted to eventually live after visiting my best friend when she moved here years ago. I finally decided to make the move in October of 2020.
My favorite part about being a hygienist is being able to help teach patients simple ways to better their oral health. I also love being able to help patients feel comfortable going to the dentist and look forward to coming back!
When not working, I enjoy being active with my husky pup Marshall, spending time with friends, and exploring the city. I also have a small business making tie-dye clothing of all kinds and love to sing and write music!
