Finding a dentist that you can trust and is available to listen to your needs is important to maintaining your oral health. Our caring team of highly trained professionals is dedicated to providing personalized care in a relaxed and comfortable environment. Our dentist and staff have over 30 years of combined dental experience with additional specialty training in cosmetic dentistry, Invisalign orthodontics and dental restorations. We combine advanced dental materials, specialty oral healthcare products and personalized service to provide our patients with a dental experience to exceed all expectations.
Our team is very energetic, is one word I would use to describe the team, and they are very outgoing and I like that. I think for the most part you need to have outgoing people to create a positive environment, and I think that one of the things that patients feel when they come into the office for the first time is that positive energy. There’s nothing better for our team and for myself to see a patient come in having a bad and leave with a smile on their face. And how many people can say that after going to the dentist? It’s very rare but it happens, because we like to joke around with them, we know about their personal lives, we ask them questions about themselves, it’s a very positive atmosphere and even when perhaps the news isn’t that good, you need to have a crown done because you have a cavity, we try to make it so that it’s not that big of a deal, we can fix this, let’s get through this together. And I think that the team that I have works very well with each other and they feed off of each other’s energies.
We have Karen who is up at the front, who is very, very dedicated to making sure that she has the information that the patient’s need when it comes to their financials, when it comes to their insurance plan, whatever it is that they need, if they need anything transferred from one office to another, she will do that for them. She is like their personal assistant, basically. Anything that they need, they can call her.
Melissa is the one in charge of greeting new patients when they come in and she is very organized, she makes sure that when they come in they have what they need, she offers them something to drink, she’s very friendly, she lets me know that they’re a little nervous, let’s not let them wait, let’s get them in really quickly because they’re not looking like they’re too happy waiting in the waiting room.
My dental assistant Sheena and my hygienist Natalie, they’re very gentle, they’re very talkative and they want to make sure the patient feels comfortable. And really, at the end of the day it’s just a caring environment. We’re really trying to make sure that the patient leaves with a full understanding of what they have need of, and that they don’t have any questions when they leave; they don’t leave here going I have no idea what I’m supposed to do now. They know exactly what they’re supposed to do and if they do have any questions they know that they can call us at anytime. The team energy is really important and I think that’s one of the things that patients notice.
Dr. Lynette Crouse grew up in the city of Houston and attended Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart where she graduated high school with high honors. She completed her undergraduate degree by obtaining a double major in biology and chemistry from Houston Baptist University. She went on to receive her dental degree from the University of Texas – Houston in 1999. Upon graduation she moved to Madrid, Spain to attend an internship program in periodontics.
The following year, she was honored to be accepted into the graduate practice residency program at the University of Texas for additional advanced training. During her residency she received intense training in oral medicine, hospital dentistry and sedation. Upon completion of this year long residency she entered private practice, working as an associate for a cosmetic dental practice.
In 2004, she decided to open her own practice with the idea of providing quality dental care in a relaxed and patient oriented environment. She has received additional training in cosmetic dentistry and smile design from the Las Vegas institute for Advanced Dental Studies and is a certified invisalign provider. She is fluent in Spanish and French and is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Family is very important to Dr. Crouse. She enjoys traveling and spending time with her four children, either at soccer practice or just hanging out at home.
I think our patient care is much different. We are more personable with our patients and I think it makes patients a lot more comfortable. Because when they are actually coming into the office, they seem nervous because it’s dentistry. But once they realize that we are people just like them, and we give them an overall smile with just a genuine, just being natural people like them, I think it brings an overall relaxation to the patient.
If I was going to recommend somebody to come visit us here at Precise Dental, I would make sure that their visit from the very first time that they walk into the door to the time to meeting with Karen to fill out their new paperwork to them visiting us in the treatment that they’re going to have the most wonderful experience. Something different from any other office; the care, the way we take our time. I think the biggest thing is we don’t double book our patients so when you come in for your time, your time is our time. We see you that whole hour, we make sure that we go through everything thoroughly and we are never rushed. So we make sure that we have time to answer our patient’s, all their questions, any questions whether it’s from one to a hundred questions, we can always accommodate whatever may be wrong with them.
