  • Cindy, RDH
    Hygienist

    I love helping people maintain and fix their oral hygiene, and have turned my passion into a fun career! I spend time getting to know my patients and have to say that the people is the best part of my job. I became a dental hygienist in 2017 after immigrating to the US from Colombia and getting 2 other degrees. Outside of work I'm spending time in the outdoors with my young family!

  • Kelle, .

    I have worked for Dr. Thedford for a year, and am part of our front desk staff. I enjoyed growing in my field from starting as a dental assistant to now working fully in the front office. I love greeting the patients and building relationships with them. Outside of work I enjoy caring for my two dachshunds, spending time with my daughter, and antiquing with my husband!

  • Juliet, RDA

    I have been in the dental field for 15 years and love to make smiles brighter and better peoples day. I love to foster local animals and travel with my family when I'm not at work! 

  • Doris, RDA

    I have been a dental assistant 20+ years, and 12 of those years have been with Dr. Thedford. I have worked in the dental field in two states, California and Texas, and have loved both, but Texas holds a special place in my heart. When I'm not at work you'll find me spending time with my family!

What Our Clients Say About Us

    Apple Dental in Schertz is a great business! I appreciate the weekend availability and the staff (new) truly make you feel welcomed! The atmosphere is genuine and Dr. T is fantastic at his trade! If you have a dental need, give them the opportunity!

    Steph R.

    Prior to Apple Dental I dreaded visiting a dentist's office but Dr. Thedford and his staff have completely changed my mindset. Dr. Thedford is excellent in managing any and all treatment without any discomfort. He truly has your best interest at heart when it comes to your current and future dental health. He and the staff are very informative on any treatment he suggests and patient when helping you understand why addressing it is important. Another plus for me as a parent is their Saturday availability just another reflection of them catering to the needs of their patients. Thank you Apple Dental for all you continue to do.

    Sandra R.

    Thank you to the staff at Apple Dental and the dental hygienist Cindy! They were all welcoming and Cindy went above and beyond to make sure my daughter, who is on the spectrum for Autism, was comfortable and able to calmly take in her surroundings without being rushed or seeming impersonal. I am truly grateful for the compassion that was shown and the time that was dedicated by all of the staff and the dentist himself! We left with smiles and feel we have found a dentist that works best for us.
