This is the philosophy we operate under at Crown Dentistry. We can’t imagine feeling fulfilled without having a family of pleased patients. We truly enjoy spending time getting to know you and the story behind your smile—it’s why we pursued our professions and why we work hard to keep current on ways to make your experiences more comfortable and convenient. The greatest rewards we receive as your dental care providers are your genuine, happy, healthy smiles, and hearing that we’ve changed the way you feel about visiting the dentist!

I was born and raised in Waxahachie, Texas, but I currently reside in Fort Worth with my mom, Dr. Hawkins, and two siblings—a younger brother, Rocky, and a big sister, Raider. I don’t have a degree in psychology, but I’m certified through United States Service Dogs as an emotional therapy dog. It works out well, because I love people, and most of all I love the attention they give me! When I’m not meeting new people and soaking up their attention in the office, I’m happily chasing squirrels out of my backyard, destroying toys, and chewing on antlers! Some people were disappointed that I grew to be a bit bigger than your average Pomeranian, but my mom tells me it’s because I am royalty and how I got hired here at Crown Dentistry! I can’t wait to see you at your next appointment and provide any emotional support you need.
