Meet the Team
Hi!!! My name is Dora Chavez, I was born and raised in San Antonio Tx. I graduated from San Antonio College of Medical and Dental Assistants in June 2005. I have been a Dental Assistant since then and have never looked back. I take pride in providing our patients with the proper care and a comfortable environment, hoping that each patient will have a positive dental experience. I’ve been alongside Dr. Thompson and her staff since 2009. My specialties are Orthodontics, chairside assistance and front office work. My favorite part of my job is giving someone confidence in their smile. I am always striving for a higher standard of dental care. I thoroughly enjoy working with the team at Smiles R Us and always look forward to making our patient’s experience better. In my spare time, I enjoy shopping and spending as much time as possible with my 4 beautiful daughters!
Hi! My name is Glenn. I am originally from Odessa, Tx. I've been a Dental Assistant for almost 8 years now. I love what I do! My main passion is Orthodontics because I love giving people the confidence that they’ve always wanted in their smile. I have been blessed with a wonderful wife, a beautiful daughter and her two wonderful boys. I've been part of the Smiles R Us team since 2015 and it's been a great experience working with Dr. Thompson and her staff. In my spare time, I enjoy the great outdoors and visiting my family back in my hometown!
Hi my name is Teresa Gomez. I was born in Mission community, which is in the Rio Grande Valley here. My parents were migrant workers and lived in California for 20 years. California is where I went to Dental school to become a dental assistant. In 1992 I moved back to the Rio Grande Valley. In July 2014 I moved to San Antonio. I have been in the dental field for more than 15 years. I enjoy meeting new people every day. I am able to educate patients of the importance of visiting the dentist, as well as the importance of oral hygiene at home. I have been part of Smiles R Us family since January 2015. Dr. Irma Cantu-Thompson is a great dentist and I enjoy working chair side with her. On my time off, I enjoy spending time with my family and the great outdoors as much as possible. I can’t wait to meet you!
Front Office Staff
My name is Orita Fernandez , I have been working with the team at Smiles R us for over 17 years. I am a registered dental assistant as well as an administrative manager who has a passion for helping people. I really enjoy my experience here in the dental office and believe that the patient's overall visit should reflect why I chose this profession. I've had the privilege to accompany Dr. Cantu-Thompson on missions to Haiti, El Salvador, and Mexico to volunteer and help those less fortunate. When I'm not working, I love spending time with my family of two great kids and an amazing husband. We love to go camping. I love working here at Smiles R Us because we have the best patients! Hope to see you soon!
