At Josey Lane Dentistry, our family doesn’t just stop with our team, it continues on to our patients! We have personally handpicked each team member to make our patients feel at home every visit. Learn more about our doctors and team members:
Kathlena (Kat) – Financial Coordinator
Kat is a Milwaukee, WI native but got to Texas as fast as she could! She began her career in dentistry back in 2004 and joined the JLD team in 2010. Being apart of a team that puts the patients care as the priority, is what she loves most about this office. In her spare time, Kat is very involved in ministry, she is one of many leaders of a Women’s Ministry, and she also sings in a choir. Another past time she enjoys is watching Football, and what do you know, she just happens to be a Green Bay Packers Fan! Kat’s love for her family is what motivates her, she loves spending time with her amazing husband, and their three beautiful children.

Outside of the office, Quiendra loves travel, travel and more travel. Biking is one of her number-one activities to stay active, but you might find Quiendra with her nose in a book, too. And being from the area, she has loads of friends and family that she likes to spend time with.
Angela – Registered Dental Hygienist
Angela was born in Arkansas, and grew up there and in Louisiana. She moved from New Orleans to Texas in 1990 when her husband’s job moved them out of state.
