Baylee has known she wanted to work in dentistry since the age of 9 and couldn’t be happier to be doing just that as a dental hygienist! Her favorite thing about working with patients is watching their progress and enjoyment when they themselves feel the difference after changing habits for the betterment of their health. She’s from a small town north of Dallas but came to Austin for a change in scenery and to live and work in a cool city with endless opportunities. In her free time, she loves to be outside with her dog Moose, an Aussiedoodle, or relaxing on the couch with a good book (anything by Colleen Hoover!).
Baylee’s favorite quote: “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
