Lali, RDADental Assistant
I have been a registered dental assistant since 1998. In 2006, I joined Goehring Dental and have been a part of the family ever since. I have a vast knowledge of dentistry and its many procedures make me a great asset to the Goehring Dental family. I attend annual continuing education courses throughout the year to keep my skill set fresh and informed. In between my job as a dental assistant and continuing education, I am also an exceptionally committed mother, wife, sister and aunt. Originally from Eagle Pass, TX, I come from a family of 8 and understand the value of community and taking care of each other, which I extend to my patients. My husband David of 9 years and I reside in Buda, TX and enjoy spending time with our 6-year-old son DJ. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, baking, going to the movies and spending time with family and friends.
Sabrina, RDADental Assistant
I grew up in South Austin and have been in the dental field for over 20 years. After Dr. Goehring’s purchase of our dental practice, I was kept on as part of the team to help serve our patients and now combined patients from Dr. Goehring’s other practice. I love working with my new dental team and look forward to many more years taking care of our patients.
I have a wonderful 24 year old son Kirby who is attending nursing school. I love spending time with him in addition to snow skiing, kayaking and spending time at the coast, saltwater fishing, playing shuffle board and listening to live music.

I joined Dr. Goehring’s team in 2009 and have over 20 years experience in the dental field. My start in the dental office was as a dental assistant for many years before transitioning to the administrative side of dentistry. I truly enjoy helping our patients with any dental needs they may have, from the clinical treatment to insurance or financial options. Becoming part of this staff has been a very rewarding journey for me. I feel very fortunate to work for such a great dentist and team, I am proud of the service we provide our patients and look forward to being here for a very long time. On my free time I enjoy spending time with my daughter, Cassie and visiting friends. We recently moved to Buda and are enjoying getting to know the town and love the small town feel of it.

I started in the dental profession as a dental assistant when I was 17 years old and have been in the profession for almost 10 years. I have been working with Dr. Goehring since September of 2010, where I plan to stay and retire from due to his honesty and loyalty to his patients and staff.
My favorite past time is salt water fishing with my husband of almost 4 years . I also love spending time with family and friends bbqing and playing at the lake. I must not forget to mention what we call our child, my Shih tzu “Emoe Sirs.”
