About The Staff

She can also answer your questions regarding insurance and billing and will advocate for you with the insurance companies. Catherine has over 20 years of experience in dentistry and joined our team in June 2017. She is originally from North Carolina and has seen much of the country in her years as an Army wife.

Another one of our native Texans, she has been in the dental field for nearly 40 years, and has been with our office for 22 years!! Jackie insures that all of the details of the clinic run smoothly so that you are as comfortable as possible. She also reviews patient records each month to be sure needed treatments are not overlooked or forgotten. You will appreciate her reassuring smile and gentle demeanor.
Bethann - Registered Dental Hygienist

No longer do you need to fear having your teeth “cleaned” because Bethann is the gentlest hygienist we know and is excellent in her work: your children will love her too! Bethann handles the professional cleanings that most people need every 6 months. She also handles the deep cleanings, and scaling and root-planing when they are needed to combat/control gum disease. She sometimes applies sealants when needed by children and teens. She started working for Dr. Penshorn when she finished her hygiene licensing in 1998.
Rachel - Dental Assistant

She prepares the clinic room with all the tools and dental supplies needed for your treatment, takes your x-rays and assists Dr. Penshorn in giving you excellent dental care. She will review Dr. Penshorn’s instructions with you before you depart and answer questions you may have.
