Shimmer Dental

It is our goal at SHIMMER DENTAL to care for out patients with the highest quality in dental practices. Our primary mission is to educate our patients.

Our purpose comes from the derivation of the word “doctor.” It comes from the Latin word “docere,” which means “to show, teach or teach to know.”

We help achieve this goal of “teaching” with hygiene visits twice a year… A goal that can eliminate gum disease and future dental work for a lifetime.

This goal is our sincerest wish for you and family.

Dental Hygienist (RDH)​

“Since my childhood I was in love with the medical field observing my doctor parents follow their profession religiously and serving the rural section of the society. By the end of my high school, I was pretty determined to be a dentist even though my parents wanted me to be a physician. With my hard work I got my way and became a dentist in India.

I really enjoyed the clinical work during Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) and internship in India which reinforced my belief that dentistry is the right path for me. After my marriage I moved to Houston, Texas and found my dental career stuck as the dental school here didn’t have a regular advanced standing program for international dentists. After that I focused on getting a dental hygiene degree as the next best alternative to being a dentist.

I entered the dental hygiene program at HCC Coleman College for Health Sciences and immediately felt that I was on the right track. This was a very rigorous program with high standards and I was impressed by the instructors’ attention to the quality of clinical work. During the program I volunteered at dental community clinics such as Healthcare for Homeless, San Jose dental clinic, and Ibn Sina and performed procedures like sealants and SRPs, and prophylaxes.”


Executive Assistant

“Being able to witness the transformations of our patients who go through various treatments is very rewarding and inspirational. I love working at SHIMMER DENTAL because there are many opportunities to grow here as an employee as well as a person.

“My confidence has grown tremendously compared to when I first started working at SHIMMER DENTAL. I have held several positions here at the office, such as Hygiene Coordinator, New Patient Coordinator, Treatment Coordinator and Dental Assistant. I have been a Registered Dental Assistant for the past three years. I am currently working on my associate’s degree.

“In my free time, I love reading books and enjoying them with my daughter, Roselynn Diane.”


Dental Assistant

I am grateful to be able to be part of SHIMMER Dental team even if I have no experience in the field. With each day that passes by, I keep learning something new and I also have a chance to improve on what I already know. On my spare time, I like to read romance stories, paint, and pretty much listen to music all day.

Any chance to cook some Cajun food and enjoy friends is a must!
