Vicki, a native of Shreveport, Louisiana, graduated from Northeast Louisiana University in 1976 with a BA in French and a minor in Math and then received her dental hygiene degree in 1977.

After practicing for a year in Louisiana, she married and moved to Houston. Vicki has been a hygienist with our practice since 1978 and has cleaned the teeth of four generations of some families! She values the relationships and friendships she has developed with her patients over the years.

Vicki enjoys playing Pokeno and Bunco, going to the movies, dining out with friends and attending sporting events. She is passionate about the Texans, the Astros, and the Longhorns. However, the greatest joy comes from spending time with her family and eight grandchildren.


Dilly Narvaez is a native Houstonian and completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Houston. She received her dental hygiene degree from the University of Texas Dental Branch in 1996. She has practiced at our office since first receiving her dental hygiene degree.

Dilly and her husband, Jaime, have three children and working part-time allows her to volunteer at their schools and enjoy their many sports events and activities, including traveling all over with their son’s AAU basketball league.


Vicki was born and raised in Houston and has been in the dental field since 1998. She received her Associate’s Degree in dental hygiene from Wharton County Junior College.

Vicki is passionate about her work and believes that good dental hygiene is important not only for her patients’ smiles but for their overall health, as well.  She likes to keep abreast of the latest dental technologies and research and pass them on to her patients. Vicki’s friendly attitude and light touch are what keep patients looking forward to their dental appointments.

Vicki enjoys spending time with her husband Darren, her dog, Hank, her friends and her family. In her spare time, she loves sports, traveling, cooking and shopping.
