Hygienists


Aimee

Aimee is one of the three wonderful hygienists at Texas Star Dental. After working for nearly two decades as a Registered Dental Hygienist, Aimee still treasures the career she chose and is always looking for new ways to grow and expand her knowledge base to benefit her patients. In keeping up with current advancements in dental hygiene, she is certified by The Academy of Laser Dentistry and uses laser therapy in the treatment of gum disease. She is a past president of the Bay Area Dental Hygiene Association and past delegate for the Texas Dental Hygienist Association. Aimee and her husband, Brett, welcomed their son Vince into this world in 2017. Having a baby hasn’t slowed down their love for travel and little Vince has already earned his wings. When they aren’t off exploring new places together, they are at home with their Boxer dog, Lola, enjoying the many parks and walking trails Houston has to offer. Her “family first” attitude shines through in the care she provides to her patients and their families.
