Meet Our Team

Dr. Meilin Howard, Owner and Dentist

Dr. Howard grew up in Sichuan China, and was accepted as an international student by TCU with full scholarship.  She then met her husband who was a good old Texas boy at TCU football game.  She graduated from TCU with Summa Cum Laude, and is a member of Phi Beta Kappa.  She subsequently went to Texas A&M Baylor College of Dentistry to obtain her D.D.S. degree.

At work, she has always strived for clinical excellence and patient satisfaction.  She enjoys developing a personal relationship in a relaxing and caring environment.  She is very grateful that she gets to work with the most supporting staff and kind patients in this great practice.  She will continue to provide the highest quality of dental care for the entire family.

When Dr. Howard is not at the office, she enjoys spending time with her husband Will and 2-year-old daughter Emily. Her interests include cooking, singing, hiking and stand-up paddling.  She loves classical music, the opera and enjoys practicing piano and guitar at home.

Tammi Witte, Office Manager

Our Office Manager, Tammi has been with our office for 18 years.  She has been our full time hygiene coordinator for the first 12 years.  In that time she worked so closely with our patients that they are all like family to her.  She has then moved on to be our Dental Assistant and Patient coordinator.   Last September,  after our longtime employee Pat retired, Tammi took on the role as the office manager. She has literally played every role in the office and knows everything about our practice.  She is always ready to take on more challenges and continue to grow at work.  At home, Tammi is a dedicated mother of 3 daughters and loving grandmother of 4.  She is an avid Texas Tech fan.  (Wreck Em Tech!)  When she is not at work, you will probably find her on a golf course, cheering her grandchildren on at one of their events, or just relaxing and spending time with her family.




Kourtney Donaldson,  Chair-side Assistant

Our newly added chair-side assistant Kourtney is well trained to utilize all modern dental technologies.  From digital X-rays to in-office teeth whitening, she takes care of every patient with unmatched attentiveness and patience.  She grew up in Watauga and now lives in Azle with her husband and her puppy.  Kourtney has just completed her trip of a lifetime, to Israel, with her husband for her honeymoon.
