“We’re like a family here, and everyone who comes in feels that. Everyone here is in it for the long haul.”
Since middle school, Tina Buentello knew that she wanted to be a dental hygienist. She was like many other children her age: she needed small cosmetic changes to be confident in her smile. Knowing how much confidence she gained in her smile by the dentistry work she has had done, she felt driven to pursue a career that would allow her to help other people feel good about themselves in the same way. Now, she is a dental hygienist and relishes the opportunity to be a part of the Treaty Oak Dental family and help patients be healthy enough to get the cosmetic work they want.
Here, Tina believes that good dental hygiene is the foundation of long-term oral health. As a standard, Tina treats every patient like family. She strives to give her patients a strong foundation of oral health, both with her help and with patient education so that her patients can get the other procedures that they want. Treaty Oak Dental is not a place for judgement. Tina Buentello works tirelessly to make sure that her patients are comfortable and healthy, doing everything she can to get her patients back to a healthy, happy place with their oral hygiene.
Patient education is a big part of what Tina enjoys most at Treaty Oak Dental. She feels that much of her success in getting patients back on track concerning oral health comes from her ability to meet them where they are. Sometimes, all it takes is the realization that dental care is not a one-size-fits-all prescription. She takes joy in finding ways that she can help patients reclaim their oral health by educating them on how to take care of their teeth in a sustainable way and how to do it right. Her passion is continuously fueled by helping people get healthy again.
Tina Buentello loves all of her patients. She loves showing new patients that dentist offices aren’t scary or judgmental places. When you are a patient at Treaty Oak Dental, you are a part of the family.
