Teresa

Registered Dental Hygienist

I am glad to help our patients better their oral and overall health, and to bring a smile to their faces!

My days are spent helping patients improve and maintain their dental health. I take radiographs, perform perio charting, place sealants, and provide comfortable cleanings. My focus is on patient education, teaching each person about oral and systemic health. At Custom Dental of Purcell we are a true team and have each other’s backs, always. Everyone’s #1 priority is caring for our patients the best we possibly can, and having fun while doing so!

Outside of work, I enjoy time with my spouse and two children: daughter Yasmin and son Sebastian. We love to travel, spend time outdoors, dance, play family games, and cook together.

 

Kim

Registered Dental Hygienist

I grew up in the beautiful Arbuckle Mountains in Davis, Oklahoma. After graduating from the University of Oklahoma with a bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene in 1997, I acquired more than 20 years of experience in the field. I enjoy working with patients of all ages and am delighted when they discover for themselves the improvements in the health of their teeth and gums.

 It is always a pleasure to work with doctors, such as Dr. Turpin, who keep up and offer state-of-the-art dentistry to their patients and the community.

Away from the office, I enjoy reading, boating, and spending time with my husband, Brian. We love to travel, create new adventures, and listen to our two children Josh & Anna play in the church praise team band.

 

Tonya

Dental Assistant

I really enjoy my time with our wonderful patients. It’s rewarding to help people with their dental care and health, and to see each of them with stronger, healthier, happier smiles!

I work in the clinic, assisting Dr. Turpin and the hygienists with procedures while supporting our patients and providing direct care. I am also our office equipment and supply manager. We have an incredible practice and I work with the best people. We are the Dream Team and help where needed. Dr. Turpin is an amazing dentist and very caring. You will always find us having fun and working hard!

My young daughter, Araina keeps me busy with tumble and dance. We both enjoy playing with our dog and love our time together.

 

Savanna

Dental Assistant

I love creating relationships with our patients and making their appointments positive, comfortable, and enjoyable. When someone is happy with their smile, I’m thrilled!

I assist Dr. Turpin, chairside, with dental procedures. While I’m helping him, I’m also focused on our patient and making sure they are comfortable in the chair. Dr. Turpin and the girls make coming to “work” fun. We are always laughing, with each other and with our patients!

My son, Isaiah, keeps me busy! We like to go to the park, to the zoo, and to play outside. When I have free time, I enjoy concerts, reading books, and crocheting. Mainly, I enjoy my career and being a good mom to my son.

 

Lacinda

Treatment Coordinator

I love being able to walk patients through their treatment and help them better understand their needs and why treatment is necessary. It’s so rewarding when they trust the process and end up amazed at how much better they feel!

I treatment plan and work up each patient’s insurance based on Dr. Turpin’s plan. I also assist the assistants and hygienists, and am support for the front office, too. The people in this practice are amazing. Their genuine care for one another, and their communication with each other and our patients, is incredible!

My husband Aaron and I live in Norman with our two sons, Brice and Asher. We have a Boston Terrier named Buck, too. On our time off we enjoy going to the gym, being with our large extended family, and generally just being outside. In the summer we’re often at the lake or the pool. We attend church at Victory Family Church in Norman and love to volunteer anytime we can.

 

Cathy

Office Manager

I treasure the bond made between our patients and our office!

My focus is keeping the flow of the office moving smoothly, to the benefit of our patients and team. I track insurance claims and payments, review treatment and financials with patients, and keep everyone smiling. All of our team members work together to give our patients their best dental experience. We care for one another and for our patients, like a family!

My three grandsons are the highlight of my life. Watching and listening to them as they grow is a blessing. I travel when I have the opportunity, with Destin, Florida being a favorite destination. Closer to home, I’ve recently tried my hand at cake decorating – will have to wait and see if this becomes a new hobby.
