Clarece Bland, Hygienist

My name is Clarece Bland and I am a dental hygienist. I was born in Kansas but I’ve been a Texas gal for twenty-eight years! I have been practicing dental hygiene since 1974 after graduating Sigma Phi Alpha (highest honor society in dental hygiene) from the University of Louisiana in Monroe. I married my childhood sweetheart in 1975 and have four sons, three daughter-in-laws and four wonderful grandchildren. I enjoy spending time with my family and I LOVE going to the beach.

Bree Valentic, Hygienist

My favorite part about being a hygienist is seeing the transformation from an unhealthy mouth to a stable, healthy mouth. I love seeing my patients gain the power to take control of their oral health. It is also an amazing experience seeing my patients grow in their personal lives and sharing fun stories of travel, family and history.

After relocating to San Antonio from San Diego, California in 2015 I graduated from The University of Texas Health Science Center, School of Dentistry with a bachelors in science Dental Hygiene. I have been blessed to work in specialized fields of cosmetic, periodontics and geriatric dentistry.

Gloria Garza, Registered Dental Assistant

I have been a Dental Assistant since 1992 and absolutely love our patients and working in dentistry. My two passions are my dental career and getting my hands dirty on my ranch in Floresville. I love working outdoors to make things beautiful, stargazing, dancing and going to the lake.

    I always hid my smile because I was self conscious about my teeth. Dr. Young designed the best veneers I could have ever asked for! I can't stop smiling! She made me feel at ease in the dental chair and made me smile again. I am really proud of my smile now.

    Dr. Young saved my smile! I cracked my front tooth in a painful lifeguard injury over the summer and I thought my tooth was going to be an ugly snaggled mess, or worse, they would have to extract it. I went to see Dr. Young and she literally made me smile again and fixed my tooth! She is awesome and so is the entire team. Thank you, Dr. Young!

    My forehead was a wrinkled mess before I visited Dr. Young. Her technique was fantastic! I've had botox before and it hurt, but Dr. Young was so gentle, I barely felt a thing. My botox treatment was wonderful! Looking forward to my next appointment.
