Steven D. Alaniz, DDS, FAGD

Dr. Steven D. Alaniz has designed his office to feel more like home than a dental practice by offering comfortable chairs, overhead televisions and spa-like touches. He believes that if his patients feel at home and are comfortable, they will always enjoy coming and maintaining their dental health. He will customize treatment plans to best benefit each patient’s dental health with function and beauty at the forefront. He offers nitrous oxide as well as oral sedation in order to provide a level of comfort to meet each individual patient’s needs.

Tonia - Practice Manager

As the Practice Manager,  I have many responsibilities at the practice, but I must say that what I enjoy the most is greeting our patients and getting to know them. I will ensure daily that you, our patient, are receiving the best care possible by our wonderful staff and that you comfortably enjoy each visit.  One of my favorite resonsibilites is being active in our city and community.  I enjoy using my platform in our office to support activites that involve our school district and various city activities.  

I am motivated every day in knowing that our practice will continue to grow bigger and stronger with the hard work and dedication of our wonderful staff. Together as a team, with loyalty and personal attention, we make our practice a great place for your dental experience. We offer our patients of all ages a comfortable, caring and trustworthy environment.

I believe that every patient has a choice to walk in our door. I want to be the “why” in every patient’s experience here. Through clear communication and education, I can set clear expectations with each patient by listening to them and understanding their individual need. I have been provided with bonus tools to enhance every experience. I believe that my choice to go the extra step and do the unexpected for each patient will result in continuous referrals that will provide growth and sustain a healthy practice. In doing this, I can honestly say that I provide each patient with consistent knowledge to help them best determine their course of treatment. When a patient decides to leave our practice, I want to know the “why” and learn from their experience here.

Beth - Insurance Coordinator

My vision is to work as hard as I can to be a dependable and valuable part of this incredible team, whatever is needed of me.   It is my goal to provide precise information so that our patients will be cognizant of their financial responsibilities.   Insurance is not pleasant to deal with at times and I want our patients to know that I am willing to go an extra mile to help them navigate through it and understand their benefits.  I love that our office has a very warm and inviting atmosphere and I strive to convey that to anyone that may call our office so that we may continue to stand out in our community as an exceptional practice in every way.

Irma - Hygienist

I was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas and love it. I started my dental career in 1996, while still in high school. I received my bachelor’s degree from the Texas Woman’s University, dental hygiene program in 2003. I have been practicing dental hygiene in different dental specialties and still absolutely love my profession and the patients I have met over the years. I am amazed how we as dental providers, have the privilege to positively impact on our patient’s lives, by helping them achieve optimal oral health. My goal is to provide the best individualized treatment for each patient and to meet them where they are at, with regards to their oral health. I desire to build lasting relationships with our patients and always make them feel welcomed and know they can trust us with their smile.  I am married to an amazingly witty husband who always keeps me on my toes and knows how to make me laugh. We are the proud parents to 4 energetic children, 3 boys and 1 baby girl. We are quite the busy parents with baseball, swim class, and several church ministries. Rarely do we have any free time but when the occasion arises, we love to have date nights to go enjoy one another’s company without any kids sitting in our laps or talking about a recent kids movie.
