Kathy SchmidtKathy Schmidt | Dental Hygienist

Kathy spent most of her school years in Tyler, Texas.  She graduated from Tyler Jr. College in 1971 with an Associate’s Degree in Dental Hygiene.  Over the past 40+ years in dentistry, Kathy worked in several cities in Texas and enjoyed a wide variety of experiences in the profession.  Overall it is always the joy of meeting new people and helping them enjoy better dental health that is her draw to continue in dental hygiene all of these years.

Kathy and her husband, Bobby, have lived in the Round Rock area for over 20 years with a brief move to Tyler for about 2 years.  They retired and moved to take care of her mother during that period, but Round Rock called her back and she feels lucky to have been asked to join the staff at Mallard Creek Dental.

The loves of her life, besides her husband, are her daughters and grandchildren.  Church activities and volunteering are a big part of her spare time but getting ready for a new grandbaby is on the top of her list these days.
