Our Team

Meet our team

Kim is our scheduling coordinator and insurance coordinator.

Kim is the sweetest and wants to do her duties to the best of her ability. She works remotely from Zimbabwe and you will likely talk to Kim about scheduling or moving an appointment, your insurance to confirm your appointment.

Anna is an excellent, friendly and knowledgeable hygienist.  She graduated from UT Health San Antonio Dental Hygiene School and earned the Top Clinician award for her class.

Anna is a native Houstonian and enjoys exploring the great outdoors with Butters, her golden retriever.

Jen is our talented Clinical coordinator who handles our schedule and maximizes your insurance benefits.

Jen has been in dentistry since 2017 and she is obsessed with her husky and pug. On her free time, she loves to go dancing and spending time with her boyfriend and family time.

Our team is diligent in verifying your plan to make sure that you get the most out of your out-of-network benefits. We accept and file claims for all PPO plans.

Meet Dr. Shirley Parikh

Dr. Shirley Parikh was born and raised in Houston, Texas and is The University of Houston alumna.  She loves the Bayou City and made Houston her forever home after graduating from Texas A&M Health Science Center, Baylor College of Dentistry in 2008.  Dr. Parikh has been in practice for more than a decade and settled in the Rice Military neighborhood in 2012. Nestled between Memorial park, River Oaks and the Heights, its the perfect place to be in Houston.

She fell in love with dentistry as a career when she realized that it would fulfill all of her talents and passions.  Science and an eye for design were key.  You really need an eye for esthetics if you’re going into smile design.  She is a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry and on her way to earning Mastership later this year.  This means that she has taken thousands of hours over the required continuing education requirements and passed a stringent exam.  She stays on the cutting edge in dentistry and whole body health. She is currently studying with Clinical Mastery Series to master her skills in smile design and pain management.

She lives in the lovely Oak Forest neighborhood just a few miles from the practice.  She believes in whole body health including nutrition, mental, emotional and spiritual well being.  She is also an avid reader, a huge fan of Pilates and weight-training.

If she’s not talking “teeth”, on a treadmill or on her bike then she must be on a plane headed somewhere.  She believes in family travel and their last trips include Vail, Banff National Park, Vancouver, Seattle and Disney World.  Quarantine brought us closer to home and we workout as a family in our garage, family walks, bike rides or shooting hoops.
