ShawnaPractice Resource Coordinator
I have been in dentistry for over 20 years. I grew up in Garland, Texas. Growing up I played soccer for Sting throughout high school and then went on to play soccer in college.
Here at myKIDSdds I am the PRC. What makes myKIDSdds so different is that our doctors treat each patient as if they were their own child and care deeply about not just their dental health but also their overall health. We are continuously focused on furthering our patient’s health education and looking for opportunities for growth and development for each of us as well.
When I’m not in the office I’m usually at home, it is my sanctuary. You can find me spending time gardening, cooking, watching sports and spending time with family in the outdoors.
My nametag is a chocolate brown Dachshund in honor of Hershey. He was my first “child” and will always have a special place in my heart.

It is a privilege to work with an outstanding team, who are dedicated to provide the best orthodontic care possible for our patients. We are very proud of Dr. Glenn who has been recognized nationally by her peers as the president of the American Academy of Orthodontics.

It is amazing to watch these young patients growing up with a positive idea of coming to the dental office. We have a lot of fun with our patients who keep us entertained and smiling.
I have chosen the sunflower to be on my name tag because it is unique in following the sunlight during the day. I try and do the same thing in my own life, and feel we should all try to live in the sun.
