Amber Kines, RDA
I was born in Dallas County in 1971, grew up in Mesquite, Texas. I am
married to Dr. Kines-McLeod's brother Randall Kines; we have 3 children
together. Family is important to us therefore, we have several family members
that work here. I am thankful I get to spend my day with my sister in law, she
is an amazing women!
I have been with Dr. Kines-McLeod D.D.S. since our doors opened in 2005,
and what a blessing it has been for me and my family. I absolutely love
being in the dental field and I believe that dentistry is one of the greatest
professions that one can be a part of. I am beyond thankful that I have the
privilege to be the Practice Manager of this dental office, which includes a
talented group of caring, compassionate, loving individuals; who ALL strive to
make our patients as comfortable as we possible can.
Along with being the Practice Manager I'm a Registered Dental Assistant and
hold certificates in Pit and Fissure Sealants, Coronal Polishing and Nitrous-
Oxide monitoring. I am currently working towards my CDD (certified dental
design); through continued education and learning I am able to grow as a
clinician and provide quality and current dental treatment.
I look forward to helping our patients and others. I volunteer my time once a
month at our Love Revival Extraction Clinic and once a year with Give Kids a
Smile; it feels good to be in a field where I can give back to our community.

I was born, raised, and graduated from Terrell, Tx. On July 13, 2009 I was blessed with the opportunity of a rewarding career with Dr. Gwendolyn D. Kines-McLeod. I’m married and have two beautiful children. I believe you will go far in life as long as you are honest, have faith, and work hard.
Lenni , RDH
I was born in Terrell and have lived here pretty much my entire life. I graduated in the top 10% of Terrell High School class of 1993. From there I attended TVCC and Eastfield College to acquire my basics and was a member of Phi Theta Kappa honors society.
I love people and have always had an interest and fascination with teeth. So when Dr. Kines decided to start a non-profit organization in 2007 providing emergency extractions for people without insurance for a small fee, I volunteered. Knowing nothing, my "help" consisted of pushing the button on the x-ray machine (which is very simple and I couldnt even do that right). After volunteering and learning more, I decided I wanted to be a hygienist. I began taking the classes needed to apply to the dental hygiene program.
In 2009, I was laid off from my job of several years and Dr. Kines offered a front desk position with her office. A few months later, I was accepted into the Tyler Junior College dental hygiene program.
In 2011, I graduated with honors from Tyler Junior College's Dental Hygiene program obtaining an Associate of Applied Science degree in dental hygiene. I began working for our office on June 20, 2011.
Most of the people that work in our office our related. I'm married to Dr. Kines' cousin and I work with several other family members. The ones that aren't related are close enough to be considered family. When we aren't working, we are usually together anyway. The atmosphere of our office is friendly and fun. We always try to make sure that our patients feel at home and comfortable and part of the family.
My goal is to provide the best possible care for each of my patients while making it as pain free as possible. I love what I do!
When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Jerry Davidson, and our four kids: Brandon, Katelyn, Keeli and Caleb. We love the lake and spend as much time there as we can. We also enjoy spending time with our friends and family.
Mechelle , RDH
Growing up in a dental office with my mother as an assistant and office manager, I always knew I would follow in her footsteps. After working as an assistant and a receptionist throughout high school I decided to further my education and graduated from Tyler Junior College in 2001 to began practicing as a Registered Dental Hygienist. Over the last six years I've made Dr. Gwendolyn Kines-McLeod's office my home and consider my patients and coworkers as an extended part of my family. A few of the things I love about my job is the opportunity to educate young children about oral health and the ability to change someone's smile. After all a smile can change someone's life. I currently live in Wills Point and will soon be married to an amazing man, Dan Hagler. We enjoy spending time with our four girls camping, traveling, hunting and watching many of the girls sporting events.
