Meet The Staff

  • Elsie Elizondo
    Office Manager

    My name is Elsie and I am the office manager. I have worked at Smile Avenue since 2010. I can honestly say that I am blessed to be able to work each day with such an outstanding team and such a caring and compassionate doctor. As the office manager, I take pride in acting as the liaison between the patients and the clinical staff and making sure that each and every patient is well-informed and educated about their dental health and treatment options. I am dedicated to making your visits as positive as possible and to address any concerns that you may have. On my time off I enjoy reading and taking trips to the river with my loving husband and our 3 sons.

  • Julie Garduza
    Patient Care Coordinator

    Hello, I’m Julia! When you visit Smile Avenue, I’m the friendly face that you will see at the reception desk. I take pride in ensuring that your visit runs smoothly so that Dr. Reed and the clinical staff can focus on providing the highest level of care to you and your family. I have been committed to dentistry and patient service for over 10 years. I am highly knowledgeable and experienced at addressing any questions that you may have about your dental treatment plan and insurance plans. When I am not working, you can find me around town spending quality time with my beautiful daughters and loving husband.

  • Brittany Swearengin
    Hygienist

    Welcome to Smile Avenue! My name is Brittany. I am a native Houstonian and graduate of the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene. I have a passion for making patients feel comfortable while also educating them about the importance of their oral and overall health. I do my very best to make the dental experience enjoyable for all of our patients by incorporating a fun, educational and friendly energy into the appointments. I love being able to come to work each day with a team that works so well together and is passionate about treating each patient like family. In my spare time I enjoy running, traveling, exploring new restaurants and spending time with my family and friends.

  • Rosie Olmeda
    Dental Assistant

    Hi! I’m Rosie and I am a Registered Dental Assistant and I attended Houston Community College. I have been a part of the Smile Avenue team since 2012 and I really enjoy working in my hometown and helping serve the needs of those in my own community. Being a dental assistant is enjoyable because I get the chance to help others and make their visit as pleasant as possible. I especially enjoy working with and helping children. On my free time I enjoy gardening, Bible study and spending time with my family.

  • Paola Irizarry
    Dental Assistan

    We are proud to welcome our newest team member, Paola! She moved to Southeast Houston from Killeen, TX in 2013. Her parents are from Puerto Rico and she was raised with a military background. She studied dental assisting in Waco, TX in 2011 and has been enjoying her career in the dental field since then. What she loves most about dental assisting is helping her community become more educated about oral health. One thing she loves about Smile Avenue is the home-like office environment and the philosophy of always keeping the patients as comfortable as possible. Some things she likes to do on her free time are fishing, swimming, road trips/traveling, cooking and spending time with her family and friends. She is very grateful and blessed to be a part of the Smile Avenue team and is looking forward to growing with the practice for many years to come.
