Melanie, Dental Hygienist
Melanie has been licensed to practice dental hygiene since 1976. She attended Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge for three years and earned her B.S. degree in dental hygiene from Texas Women’s University. Melanie is very familiar with the dental field: her father was a dentist and her brother is a dentist. She has worked with Dr. Mathis since 1992. Melanie has two children, Daniel and Kristen, and a precious grandson named Jace, born in 2013. Aside from family activities, Melanie enjoys her sorority, good friends, and watching Days of Our Lives during lunch.
Chanda, Certified Dental Assistant
Chanda has been in the dental field since 1998. She joined Dr. Mathis’s team in 2002 after being in the Dallas area only four days–we grabbed her up quick! Chanda moved here from Groves, Texas, and has a daughter born in 2007 and a son born in 2013. She has an excellent chair-side manner and is very caring. Our patients are very comfortable with her and confident in her abilities as an assistant.
Erin, Receptionist, Administrative Assistant, and Certified Dental Assistant
Erin has been in the dental field since 2009 after 15 years in the restaurant industry. Both fields have allowed her to work with the public, which she is very passionate about. She attended dental assisting school in Richardson in 2008, graduated in 2009, and worked as a chair-side assistant until November 2014, when she started working with Dr. Mathis. She is the youngest of six siblings, was born in Dallas, and grew up in East Texas. She moved back to the Dallas area in 1994 and hasn’t left since. She enjoys being able to get back to East Texas as often as possible to enjoy the “country life” with her son, Brennan. He was born in 2000 and has grown up playing soccer, basketball, baseball, and football. Erin and Brennan have a chocolate lab named Luke who goes with them everywhere. They spend a lot of time taking Luke to the dog park to swim and collect tennis balls, and when they’re not heading to football training or playing with Luke, they love to catch a good movie and play board-games.
