“I have enjoyed getting to know my patients over the years, meeting families of every generation. Seeing my young patients grow is exciting, and it is great to see them lose their fear of the dental office. There is nothing better than seeing a patient become more confident in their smile.”

Courtney Paschall, RDH – Dental Hygienist


Courtney is a graduate of Texas A&M and Baylor College of Dentistry. She is from Mesquite, but now resides in Mckinney with her husband, Eddie, and their daughter, Jaycee.

“What I love most about working for Lone Star Family Dental is creating relationships with every patient that walks through the door! My goal is always to get rid of the “I hate the dentist” kind of mentality!”
