Meet your hygienists at Welch Dental Group

Maintaining optimum oral health is our primary goal here at Welch Dental Group. Here at our Katy dental practice, we often educate our patients that there’s no “one-size-fits-all” dental treatment and we have the staff to fit each of our patient’s needs. Some patients may need to visit our dental practice twice a year while some may need to see us every three months- either way we are happy to see you every time. Here are a few of our staff and a little about them. We are happy to introduce:
