Dr. Tina Foss
Dr. Foss makes her office a fun place to visit. As you enter into each operatory, you will notice all of the rooms are decorated in an inviting décor of animals from different places around the world. She enjoys traveling and taking pictures. She also has a great love for animals and enjoys photographing them. You will notice that she and her staff are usually laughing and joking around, which makes her office feel like a family environment.
Dr. Foss opened her private practice in 2003 after serving in the U.S. Army as a dental resident. She is a loyal fan of Oklahoma University, her alma mater, from which she graduated dental school in 1990. Her gentle hand and that great smile prove most inviting in what can sometimes be a nervous situation.

Christie Alvarez, RDH
Christie has been lending a helping hand to North Mesquite Dental since 2011. We are excited to bring her on full time in 2015. Christie is a compassionate and outgoing hygienist who sincerely cares for the overall health of her patients. She feels that providing patients with dental hygiene education and motivation is the best way to prevent gum disease and future dental treatment. Outside of becoming a dental hygienist, she prides herself in being the best mother possible to her four children and her pitty, Abby. Christie enjoys spending time outdoors with her family. Her favorite activities are going to the lake or beach and riding ATVs. Although Christie lives a very busy life, it’s achievable with the loving support of her friends, family.
