This really is a family business! Debra, our office manager, has been married to Dr. Hawkins since 1980 so she understands perfectly what a stickler he is for excellence. Honest, caring, fun, and dependable, she brings her own excellence to the table, making sure that everything runs smoothly, and every patient is happy and has completely individualized treatment. “I love my job,” says Debra. “Our patients just make my day. Add that to the passion our staff has for their work and the honesty and integrity of Dr. Hawkins, and I couldn’t ask for a better way to spend my days. Plus, it is always exciting to learn new management techniques to help the office become better and better.”
A 35-year veteran of the dental field, Debra graduated from Baylor University with a degree in marketing management. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, exercising, and attending Bible study and volunteering through St. Martin’s Episcopal church, spending time with her children, grandchildren, and her beloved Riley, a 13-year-old Labradoodle.
