KORI – CLINIC ADMINISTRATOR
I have been in the dental field for 18 years, which has allowed me to achieve and appreciate a gratifying career. I discovered my passion and interest for dentistry as a teenager throughout my orthodontic treatment. I was raised in Gatesville, TX and currently reside in Oglesby, TX with my handsome 11 year old son, Kutter, and yes “he fits his name well”! My son and I take pleasure being outdoors enjoying our hobbies of camping, playing softball, fresh/saltwater fishing, Texas Ranger baseball and racing BMX. Kutter participates in BMX on a state and national level so, that certainly keeps us on the road a lot! And one last “tad bit” about myself…
I AM A DIE HARD AGGIE FAN, GIG EM’! WHOOP!
DANA – HYGIENE COORDINATOR, RDA
I have been in the Dental Field since 1990. I came to work for Dr. Thrasher in 1997 serving as one of his registered dental assistants. I now work with the business team as the Hygiene Team Leader and Hygiene Coordinator. I absolutely love it! I have two wonderful boys, Brandon, age 18, and Nathan, age 13. They keep me very busy with Robinson Rocket football, baseball, and basketball. I was born and raised in Mexia, Texas. Most of my family still resides there. I love anything outdoors; fishing, camping, swimming, and gardening. I love being in the dental field as every day I learn something new!
KATIE – REGISTERED DENTAL HYGIENIST
I always knew that I wanted to work in healthcare. After studying many different fields, I decided to work in one that creates beautiful smiles! I have been a dental hygienist for Hillcrest Dental Care for six years, and I love my job! I can’t wait to get to work every day and help patients get healthy and have the best oral care possible. I’ve been married for eight years to my wonderful husband and high school sweet heart, and we have a two and a half year old daughter and a three month old son that keeps us running nonstop! Our weekends stay busy with family and friends and we love every minute of it.
NICOLE - REGISTERED DENTAL HYGIENIST
I tried other things, but I was always drawn back to dentistry. Having a career in dental hygiene is rewarding in so many ways. The way I feel at the end of the day when I have made people smile and helped them understand their health is the best benefit. When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my family which consists of 5 kids, ages 2-12 and my wonderful husband of four years.
MORGAN - REGISTERED DENTAL HYGIENIST
Since my early childhood, I knew I wanted to be a dental hygienist. I wanted to be in a field that was rewarding and working with Dr. Thrasher and his team is just that. I love my job and would not change a thing. I graduated from Blinn College in College Station and then moved to San Marcos to work in Seguin. I moved back to Waco to be closer to my family and friends. I am engaged to my childhood friend, Cody Brown. We are both Waco natives and we do not have any children at this time but, we do have three, four-legged children, Lacey, Whitley, and our newest addition, Kimber. Lacey is a Whippet, she is very lazy but loves to run. Whitley is a Lab/Retriever mix, she likes to eat and sleep. Kimber is a 9 week old Red Heeler and is a pistol; she is into everything and eats what will fit into her mouth. We enjoy cooking on the grill, spending time with our family and friends or going to a Texas Rangers Game.

I also enjoy spending time with my friends and the outdoors.

We love sports; basketball, baseball, softball and football; you name it my kids do it. We are always on the go with our kid’s sports activities and wouldn’t change a thing about our busy life.

I have been with Dr. Thrasher and his team for five years. I was born and raised here in the Waco, Texas area. I am married to my wonderful husband, Josh, and we have two beautiful sons, Jacob and Zayne. Because both my husband and I played college sports, it is ALWAYS a competition in our house. We are an outdoor family who loves hunting, fishing, and baseball. We cannot get enough of the Texas Rangers Baseball and those Baylor Bears.
JESSICA – INSURANCE ADMINISTRATOR
With over six years of experience in the dental field, I have had the opportunity to obtain a wealth of knowledge in several areas of the business. I proudly serve on the business team as Dr. Thrasher’s Insurance Administrator. I live in China Spring with my soul mate, Matthew and our two miniature schnauzers, Lilly and Trigger. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, singing and playing softball. I love being at the lake, four wheeling, hunting and fishing. I guess you could say I’m an “outdoors” kind of girl. I am thankful for the life I have and find it heartwarming to know I have the opportunity every day to make a difference in someone else’s. To say the least, I am certainly blessed to know I am apart of such a loving and caring team of professionals here at Hillcrest Dental Care.
