The Team at The Austin Dentist
Jonna R. – Office Manager
As the office manager, Jonna is typically the first person patients meet when entering our office. She is currently on track to receive her degree from Texas State for Healthcare Administration, attending school most nights after leaving our office. Jonna has worked with Dr. Schmidt since 2014, but has been in the dental field since 2009.
Born and raised in Austin, TX, Jonna loves working in the dental field because of the difference she makes in so many lives, from educating patients to helping them feel comfortable and confident in the dental care they receive. She sees and treats every patient as a part of her family, which shows in her compassionate, caring attitude.
“A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.”
Suezette M. – Head Dental Assistant
Suezette is the Head Dental Assistant at The Austin Dentist, and is a Registered Dental Assistant through Allied Health Careers. She has also obtained additional training through continuing education courses in coronal polishing/sealants.
Suezette has worked with Dr. Schmidt since 2014, but has been in the dental field for over 17 years before joining our practice. She is certified to teach dental education at a dental assistant school, with a focus on the study of oral tissues and anatomy. She enjoys making patients comfortable and helping them take pride in their smiles.
In her off time, Suezette volunteers to help support our troops, and also volunteers for Skippy Bus helping children. She also loves spending time with her husband, son, and grandchild, and enjoying the outdoors. Her favorite outdoors activities are camping and hiking.
“Live your life to the fullest, no regrets, because tomorrow is never promised.”
Estephany C. – Dental Assistant

Outside of the office, Estephany loves fishing with her husband, as well as spending time with her young stepson and their terrier. She is also expecting her firstborn soon!
