Julie is one of the first faces you’ll see when you arrive for your dental appointment at P.A. Dental Arts. Originally born in California, Julie has been living in Texas for the past 20 years. She’s been in the healthcare and dental industry for about 12 years and is very passionate about her work. While she worked as a dental assistant and front office administrator in the past, she’s enjoyed managing everyday functions, filing and appealing insurance claims, checking in patients, answering phones, and doing just about anything else the office needs.
Since 2013, she’s seen her role at the practice as her baby. She’s built it from the ground up and truly believes that she’s made it her own ever since. When she’s not working, she’s spending time with her 10-year-old daughter, Kaylin. They both love spending time together, especially outdoors. Julie’s hobbies include dancing, which she has been doing since she was two, and is glad that her daughter also enjoys tap and ballet classes. Her family owns a dance studio in Frisco.

Adrienne’s role at the office is to evaluate patients’ oral hygiene and overall oral health, perform radiographs and dental cleanings, and educate patients on dental care. She loves how upbeat the office is and enjoys the energy and atmosphere. She loves working with a team that is constantly seeking to improve their abilities.
Adrienne and her husband Jeremy moved to Dallas in 2005. There, they raise three children and care for a pet dog. When she’s not in the office, you can find her playing the piano, practicing Krav Maga, or staying involved in the LDS Church where she serves in the youth program.
