Lisa grew up here in Rockwall and has been a part of our team since 2016. She handles scheduling, billing, and overall operations at the front desk. She takes great pride in making sure the office runs smoothly and efficiently.
Lisa is a registered dental assistant, and she is also certified in CPR, radiology, and nitrous oxide. She chose the dental field because she always wanted to help others and loves meeting new people.
“I love the people I work with. Everyday when I come to work, I know I am going to meet new people, and that’s exciting. The most rewarding part of my job is when patients tell us how we helped them, and they appreciate our kindness and honesty when it comes to their needs.””
Breezy was born and raised just down the road in Lone Oak, TX. She started her dental career early on as a pediatric sterile tech while still in high school. Upon graduation, Breezy pursued her dream of being an Aggie (“WHOOP!”) and completing her bachelors of science.
As the dental hygienist, Breezy assesses, plans, implements, evaluates and documents treatment for prevention, intervention, and control of oral diseases while practicing in collaboration with other health professionals. She also researches new restorative and preventative products to implement this practice to better serve our patients.

Breezy enjoys working with children, adults, and people with special needs. She also serves as a board member on the Texas Dental Hygienist Association Board, where she helps to improve dental hygiene across the state of Texas.
“I enjoy the time I get to spend with patients of all ages, but the most rewarding part of working here is being able to watch a small child go from being scared of the dentist, to enjoying the visit and wanting to come see us again.”
When Breezy is not helping patients, you may find her running around the lake as she trains for her second half marathon.She loves spending time with her husband, Mark, and her three “furrkiddos”, Teddy (an Austrailian Shepherd), Lady Bear (a Schnoodle) and Nanook (a Cat).

Marleni is another one of our amazing dental hygienists. She was born in Florida and later raised in Mexico. Growing up, she never had anyone tell her about the importance of oral health, and this experience caused her to become a dental hygienist. She lived in Houston for a few years before moving to Dallas and has LOVED every minute of living here.
Marleni wants to educate all of her patients by promoting oral health and increasing awareness of the risk factors associated with oral disease. Marleni enjoys the team atmosphere here at Aurentz Family Dental, and she loves how the team cares for their patients. To her, it is very rewarding to see that each patient is thankful for what the team has done for them.
In her spare time, Marleni loves to travel and try new restaurants. In addition, she is usually spending time with family, cooking out, and listening to great music. When she can, Marleni enjoys horseback riding and her main “stress reliever” is retail therapy!
Courtney is a Texas native, born in Dallas and raised in Forney, TX. She chose the dental field because of her passion for helping others.

We have been closely monitoring the updates regarding COVID-19 outbreak from the various state and federal entities. In light of the most recent recommendations, our office has made the very difficult decision to close our office to handle emergency visits only. Please allow us time to contact you if you had an appointment scheduled during this period in order to reschedule your appointment. At this time, we hope to be operating again by Wednesday, April 22nd, but realize this date may change as well.
During this closure, we will still have staff on hand at various intervals to handle true dental emergencies. Please know, this is an incredibly difficult decision for us to make, but we have to weigh the importance of your safety and the health and well-being of our team.
While we have never been through anything like this before, we are committed to moving forward with positivity and hope that “this too shall pass.” Keep smiling, stay positive and show kindness to one another as we navigate this storm together.
