Meet The Team

Excellence in Quality and Comfort

At EQ Dental, our goal as a team is to ensure you experience a pleasant visit with every trip to our Fort Worth office. We dedicate ourselves to improving the health, function, and appearance of your smile while assisting you in maintaining good oral hygiene between visits. Dr. Young keeps an office up-to-date with modern technology for efficient visits. We have also selected dental units that utilize only bottled distilled water, rather than tap, so your teeth are exposed to clean water with every treatment and procedure.

Dr. Young has a family of his own and is committed to providing you the same comfortable, thorough care he expects for his own loved ones. By listening to your concerns and using his advanced skills, including an extensive background in oral and restorative surgery, he provides efficient, effective treatments for lifelong oral health. Additionally, he welcomes questions and discussion, as he places a great deal of emphasis on the importance of dental education. He is the type of dentist who, rather than rushing you out of the dental chair, makes time for each of his patients.

Alicia

The dental field has been my career choice since 2009; I could not imagine working in any other field. After receiving my Registered Dental Assistant certification, I knew my skills were best utilized in the front office. Customer service is of upmost importance to me and I pride myself on providing excellent patient service. EQ Dental has been my home since March 2013 and I thoroughly enjoy working with Dr. Young.

In my free time, I enjoy continuing my education with business classes and attending rodeos with my family. I look forward to meeting you at your first visit!

LeAnn

Hello, I’m LeAnn. I have over 28 years of experience in the dental hygiene field and I am very excited to be working with EQ Dental. I enjoy working with people and getting to know my community. My best skills are utilized in office administration where I work directly with insurance companies!

I continually strive for growth both personally and professionally and have attended motivational training seminars from top speakers around the United States. I deeply believe that “you can get everything you want out of life by helping other people get what they want!” I look forward to helping you obtain the smile of your dreams! Further, most rewarding for me is building great relationships with our terrific patients; they know we will take exceptional care of them.

I also have three grown boys and I am very anxiously waiting to have grandchildren. I love working out, reading, and cooking Southern food. I can’t wait to meet you at your next appointment!

TanjaMarie

As far back as I can remember, I have always been interested in the dental field. I received my RDA license in February of 2014 and then began working for Dr. Young in December of 2015. I really love working with the Team at EQ Dental. Dr. Young has created a great working atmosphere that I can’t find in any other dental office. We truly are a great Team and I am so happy that I found them.

My favorite thing about working in the dental industry is seeing the boost of confidence in our patients when they leave our office. Outside of work, I love spending time with my husband and our two lovely children.

Aysa

My name is Aysa. I have been working in the dentistry field for over 8 years, 2 of which have been with Dr. Thomas Young. I studied to become a registered dental assistant in college and now work as the treatment plan coordinator at EQ Dental. Currently, I manage the dental insurances and oversee Dr. Young’s office schedule. One of the things I enjoy most about dentistry is being able to see how changing a patient’s smile has the ability to transform their lives. I aspire to make every patient feel at home when they walk through the door. My husband and I have 2 children that enrich my life every day. In my free time, I love enjoying the outdoors with my friends and family.

Cindy

My name is Cindy. I have been in dentistry for most of my adult life. I started as a dental assistant and went on to assisting for orthodontics as well as oral surgery before moving on to the front office. As a result, I have a good understanding of all aspects of dentistry. I get great satisfaction from helping others and I love my job.

In my spare time, I enjoy shopping and spending time with my grandchildren Lexi, Dalilah, and Adrian. The greatest moments of my life come from the time spent with my children and grandchildren.

Saida

The dental field enriches my life and I couldn’t see myself in any other field. More specifically, quality patient care, education, and healthcare have always been my passions in life. I make sure to treat each patient as an individual and help our patients feel welcome with a positive and cheerful attitude.

I was born and raised in Russia. I graduated from Teaching Training University in Russia before moving to the U.S. and through that I learned that helping patients achieve their dental goals through education and motivation comes first. Further, I continued my education in the Dental Hygiene Program at El Centro College in Texas. I was a dental assistant for 3 years prior to becoming a dental hygienist, and I take pride in staying up-to-date on all of the newest hygiene and dental concepts and technology.

EQ Dental is the perfect place for me because I am surrounded with fun-loving and energetic people that help me to build relationships with, and care for our patients. Outside of the dental office, I love spending time with my husband. We enjoy outdoor activities together such as horseback riding, going to the gym, target shooting, and attending Dallas Cowboys games.

Carlos

Hello, I am Carlos. I was born in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico and I moved to Dallas, Texas when I was 8. I perform part-time for Dr. Thomas Young at EQ Dental. I have been working in the dental field for the last 10 years and out of those 10 years, I have spent 7 years being a dental assistant. It has been a great opportunity for me to work side-by-side Dr. Young in his office. I have always had a great passion for the dental field and I have been very blessed to be able to fulfill my lifelong dream of becoming a dental hygienist. I enjoy meeting new people and helping them learn more about oral hygiene.

When I am not at work, I deeply enjoy spending quality time with my friends and family. I have 2 children; a 9-year-old son, and a 3-year-old daughter. Every year we attend the Texas Fair and eat lots of good fried food. I also enjoy spending time outside or working on my fitness at the gym.

Lilly

Hello, I am Lilly. I am a hygienist and have been an advocate for dental health since college. I manage the DHA community clinic and I am a practicing hygienist with EQ Dental. I have been with Dr. Young for over 3 years and love that he is continually seeking out the best treatment for his patients.

My passions surround my church, family, everything dental, and volleyball. Further, I am walking this journey with my wonderful husband Laurent and our four children. Every day, in my eyes, is as an opportunity to learn something new. I am looking forward to meeting you soon!

Jackye

The dental field has always been a fascination and passion for me since I was a child. I have passion for the field of dentistry, quality patient care, education, and healthcare. I started in a dental office in 1997 with my mom who is also a dental hygienist. I was able to learn and work in her office at that time. This was a huge benefit for me because it allowed me to understand all parts of a dental office. I graduated from Texas Tech University in 2006, earning an undergraduate degree in Psychology. I then completed a hygiene program in 2009 from Amarillo College.

In my spare time, I love spending time with my adorable husband. God has blessed me with the man of my dreams. We married in 2009 and now live in Keller. Our son Ty was born in 2011. Doors have opened for us that led us to live in the hill country and we now live in San Marcos. I am able to stay home with our son and enjoy every day with him. My family lives in the DFW Metroplex.

I love working for EQ Dental. I couldn’t imagine a better opportunity to serve and help patients. Once a month I am able to work side-by-side Dr. Young in his Keller office. I am able to do what I am passionate about and also see my family. When I'm not working, you can find Ty and myself outside enjoying the outdoors. We love living by the river, swimming, fishing, driving our tractor or FJ-40, hunting, traveling, and cooking Southern meals.

Ashton

I graduated from the Texas Academy of Dental Assisting in 2015 and joined the exceptional team here at EQ Dental in 2016. I chose the dental field because I genuinely enjoy helping people. When I see the smiles on my patients' faces, I am reassured every time that I made the right career choice. I am the liaison between Dr. Young and our patients; it is my job to make sure that you and your family are comfortable and receive the best care possible.

When I'm not at the office, I spend my time shopping, or with my family and sweet fur child, Oakley! I love taking Oakley for long walks around our neighborhood and getting to know the community.

Ryker

Hi, my name is Ryker. After obtaining my bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of North Texas, I became a dental assistant. Ever since, I have been with EQ Dental and loving it. Our patients are absolutely my number one priority. I try to create the most welcoming and informative environment possible, which includes explaining the dental process to our patients.

In the future, I plan to become a dentist myself and continue serving patients by giving them beautiful and healthy smiles. In my free time, you can find me spending time with my friends and family, hiking, playing soccer, or taking care of my spoiled pup, Roxy.

Sandra

I’ve had the pleasure of being a part of The EQ Dental team since 2013. I am passionate about being a patient advocate for EQ Dental. There is nothing like the satisfied look on a patient’s face after we have helped them understand the confusing world of dentistry. I love being able to get to know our patients, calm their fears, answer their questions, and make them feel a part of our family.

Another passion of mine is my sweet family! I cannot spend enough time with my husband, Mike, or our daughter Leilah and our son Hector. They sure know how to make my heart smile and getting to spend time with them is something I extremely value.

Raquel

For the past decade, I have been a dental assistant. I have been at Dr. Young’s office since August 2016. I feel very blessed to be a part of his committed dental Team.
