Meet Our Team
Lead Dental Hygienist
Cindy has been a part of the dental field for over 26 years. She loves being a part of our knowledgeable, caring staff, and with her great sense of humor and her love of others, we’re happy to claim her as one of our own, too. Originally from Denver, she is married and has one dog. Away from the office she enjoys caring for her yard and spending time with friends and family.
Cindy is the best hygienist ever! Thanks to her getting my teeth cleaned is no longer a terrifying experience. Can't wait for my next visit!!”
Registered Dental Hygienist
With over 18 years of experience in dentistry, Shannon brings a wealth of knowledge to our practice. Shannon grew up all over the place as an Air Force brat, attending high school in Indiana. She completed the dental hygiene program right here at Tarrant County College, though, and earned special distinction for her excellence in scaling. Shannon’s favorite part of work is getting to hear so many interesting stories from patients. Outside of dentistry, she enjoys hiking, keeping busy with her kids’ school projects, and swimming. Shannon is also a big supporter of flip phones, and recently upgraded to a waterproof flip!
Excellent as always! Shannon made me comfortable throughout the procedure.”
Lead Dental Assistant
As a dental assistant, Miranda enjoys helping patients achieve better oral health, and she loves seeing the excitement on their faces when they see how we’ve helped them. She previously studied at Tarrant County College and the Texas Academy of Dental Assisting. When she’s not helping us create beautiful smiles, Miranda enjoys sports and going out to her ranch with her dogs. She also enjoys spending time with her family.
Dr. McIntosh's staff provides a warm and friendly place that eases even the most fearful of patients.”

Karly is very polite, professional, and helpful.”
With more than 10 years in dentistry, Stephanie brings a wealth of experience to our team. A lifelong North Texan, Stephanie grew up as a “preacher’s kid” in Flower Mound. She graduated from Trinity High School in Euless, and then attended North Lake Community College.
