When you visit the dentist, they should have a team that is just as capable of making your dental visit a positive one. Every time you visit, you can expect team members who make you feel at ease, provide knowledge that’s actually helpful for maintaining positive oral health, and makes you feel human, not a number on a spreadsheet. We hope you take the time to get to know them better through their brief bios below!
Dani’s career in dentistry spans over a full decade, with the last few years spent right here at Allen Smile Design. She studied at both Collin County Community College and Richland Community College before attending the dental hygiene program at El Centro College. Today, she is a registered RDH with certifications in CPR, OSHA/HIPAA, and laser dentistry. Her favorite part of this job is getting to work with such a great team while also helping patients improve their dental health every day.
Dani was actually born and raised in Belize as the youngest of four children. She speaks English and Belizean Creole (Kriol); she’s also working on improving her Spanish-speaking skills! When she has free time, she enjoys traveling, trying new cuisines, hanging out with loved ones, and volunteering for dental hygiene mission trips.
After studying at Collin College, Jiyan completed her dental assistant training at Richland College through Dental Careers Foundation. Today, she is a Registered Dental Assistant with training in CPR. She loves working for such a talented and compassionate dentist like Dr. Lewis!
Jiyan is a middle child with three brothers and one sister. When she has free time outside of work, you can usually find her reading a good book or going to Starbucks.
