Paola Irizarry

Dental Assistant
2 years with our team

I am born and raised here in Central Texas. I have been in the dental field for the last 10 years and love it! My favorite part of assisting is working with kids…there’s never a dull moment!  I have a beautiful 10-year-old daughter that soaks up most of my free time. But, when I do get a little me -time, I enjoy cooking, taking road trips, and most importantly spending time with my loved ones.

As the Office Manager, I am happy to answer your questions, plan your appointments, resolve any insurance billing concerns, and make your visit a positive experience. My husband and I have been residents of Temple all our lives. I stay very active with my three beautiful daughters who are very busy playing select soccer, basketball, volleyball, and track. When I am not running my children to practices and games, I enjoy watching movies, relaxing, and spending time with friends and family.
