Our Dental Team
Tour Our Office
Office Manager, RDA
Cheryl, our old-timer, started her dental career with Dr. O’Keefe about 20 years ago. After 10 years with us she was called to move overseas with her husband and three children, but to our benefit they returned six years later. She has been a permanent fixture here with us ever since. One of the aspects of our office that she has appreciated is the experience and versatility of each team member. A cross-trained team allows everyone to stay current with every detail of the dental office. When not in the office Cheryl can be found attending her son’s soccer games, traveling with family and staying accountable to her Fitbit.
Front Office Assistant, RDA
Gina joined our team in 2014 as front office assistant. Her passion for serving patients comes from a combined total of over 20 years of chair-side and front office assisting. Her desire for continued education in the dental field helps her to understand our patients’ needs and concerns and inspires her to help keep you current with your dental appointments. Outside of work, church, and a blended family with six children, she enjoys running marathons with her husband and coaching others to achieve that goal.
Registered Dental Assistant
Natalie has been a part of our team since 2009. She has a passion for dentistry and enjoys working with Dr. O’Keefe. She also enjoys attending various continued education seminars to help her stay a step above in the dental field. Natalie moved to Texas from Ohio in 2009 and proudly considers Houston her home. She enjoys shopping, marathon training, Texans football, and spending time with her family and beloved dachshund, Kaylee. She brings vitality to our team!
