KORI – CLINIC ADMINISTRATOR
I have been in the field of dentistry for 19-years, which has allowed me to achieve and appreciate a gratifying career. I discovered my passion for dentistry as a teenager while going through orthodontic treatment. I was raised in Gatesville and currently reside in my hometown with my handsome 12-year old son, Kutter, and yes “he fits his name well”! Kutter is actively involved in the world of rodeo! He participates in numerous events with CTYRA and Texas Junior High Rodeo Association, which keeps us very busy and on the road a lot. We also take pleasure being outdoors enjoying camping, playing softball, fresh/salt water fishing, as well as watching college/NFL football. And one last “tid 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.
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.
KAT – RDA
I have been in the dental field for almost 15 years and I love every minute of it. I have two children. My son, Aiden, is seven years old and he loves to play soccer. He also enjoys playing with his snake, turtle and his two lizards. My daughter, Poppi is three years old and keeps me on my toes. I recently moved out in the country and love it. I also enjoy spending time with my friends and the outdoors.
JESS – Clinical Team Leader
I have been in the dental field a little over seven years. I have been working for Dr. Thrasher for over three and a half years and I absolutely love it. I have been dating my boyfriend, Joey, for three years now and wouldn’t change a thing. Though I don’t have children of my own yet, I have two furry four-legged kids, Ziggy and Tom. I am a very family oriented person so most of my time is spent with family and friends and my adorable, energetic niece, Caitlyn.
KIRK – STERILIZATION COORDINATOR
After being a patient of Dr. Thrashers, I came to work for him in 2005. I love playing the guitar and listening to all kinds of music. My wife, Vanessa and I live in Lacy Lakeview. After growing up in Miami, Florida we love the small town charm compared to the big city life!
LIZ – BUSINESS TEAM LEADER & SCEDULING COORDINATOR
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 Texas Rangers Baseball and those Baylor Bears.
JESSICA – INSURANCE ADMINISTRATOR
With over seven years’ 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 husband, Matt, our beautiful daughter, Kinsley and our two miniature schnauzers, Lilly and Trigger. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, 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 very thankful and blessed 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.
PAM – ACCOUNTS ADMINISTRATOR
I have been in the dental field for 12 years. I truly enjoy helping others and making a difference. I was born and raised in Waco, TX. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Darrell for 22 years. Together we have three amazing kids and ten wonderful grandchildren. We enjoy spending the majority of our time with our family and friends. Also, I love attending sports games/activities. When I’m not busy following whatever sporting event might be going on at the time…I enjoy dancing and listening to live bands perform.
DESIRAE - RDA
I’ve been a registered dental assistant for two years. I’ve been dating my boyfriend Michael for two years, and I couldn’t image myself without him. Together we have seven dogs, Bear, Boulder, Bruiser, Paisley, Dixie, Penelope, and last but not least George. We foster for the humane society here in Waco. Five of our seven dogs are rescues. I am the “crazy dog lady”. We also have two horses and two donkeys. I’ve been barrel racing for the past six years and love every minute of it. When we are not busy with our animals, my boyfriend and I enjoy fishing, hunting, and dancing.
