Alexis was born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas. She graduated with honors at Del Mar College where she pursued her degree in dental hygiene. She is very passionate about dental hygiene and has made Gentle Dental Spa her professional home. The reason why Alexis is interested in working in general dentistry is that she always wanted to help people by creating beautiful and healthy smiles.

Alexis has done exactly that since being a member of our team at Gentle Dental Spa. Alexis is quick to make patients feel at ease by building confidence, trust, and friendship with each patient. Her understanding nature makes it easy for patients to feel comfortable. Alexis is newly married and has an adorable Yorkie named Zoe.

In her spare time, she enjoys going on movie dates with her husband as well as spending time outdoors bike riding and playing tennis. Something unique about Alexis is her laugh - she has this special contagious laugh that radiates throughout Gentle Dental Spa.
