Our Team

Welcome to our staff's friendly Biography page


Dedra is originally from Corpus Christi, spending most of her time on the beach, and moved to San Antonio in 2009 where she has been a dental assistant for 7 years.

She joined our team at the beginning of 2013, and her enthusiasm  and love of dentistry has been a wonderful addition. Dedra has been teaching the next generation of dental assistants at Haven For Hope along side Dr Beltrane for the last 2 1/2 years. In her spare time she  has a passion for her collection of old and new vinyl, Billie Holiday, B.B King and Ella Fitzgerald being her top 10 must haves.

Dedra’s people skills will put you at ease immediately. We are most proud of her simile and when you come to the office you can see the portrait Dr. Beltane has painted of her.
