Our Dental Office Staff in Cedar Park, TX
Nicole Wallace, Practice Coordinator
Nicole was born and raised in Austin, Texas, and considers herself a true “Austinite.” Nicole graduated from a small charter school where she walked with only 24 other people! From there, she took a few college courses at ACC, including psychology and math. Finally, she ended up at Austin Dental Assistant School and graduated in July 2016.
Her favorite part of her job is seeing the patients who come in and are entirely silent, hesitant, and anxious, and eventually begin to smile, laugh, relax, and start telling their own jokes. She loves being a part of that breakthrough transformation and building that trust and relationship. In her free time, Nicole considers herself an outdoor person. She loves being at the lake with her family and seeing her boys enjoy the hobbies she used to, like dirt bike riding and sports. Nicole cherishes family time and building memories as a family (with a little “me time” in between). Nicole is currently engaged, and she and her fiancé have three boys. They also have a nutty Chihuahua mix named Milo.
Alice Hernandez, Billing Specialist
Alice is from Lamesa, TX, and currently lives in Lubbock. She is detail-oriented and does her best every day to ensure that patients can get the most out of their dental benefits. Alice loves what she does and the people she works with daily. Outside the office, she enjoys spending time with her family, cleaning, and painting. She also has a miniature Yorkie named Itsy and a Yorkshire Terrier named Trixie, who she enjoys hanging out with in her free time.
Valeria Cosme, Treatment Coordinator
Valeria was born in Puerto Rico and lives in Harker Heights. She has always known she wanted to work in a health-related field and was inspired to pursue a career in dentistry because of her sister, who is a registered dental assistant. Valeria attended Harker Heights High School and Austin Dental Assistant Academy for her dental training. She loves everything about her job, especially helping patients and making their experiences fun, so they look forward to coming back. In her free time, Valeria enjoys playing with her son, Jayce, and spending time with her boyfriend, Jalen.

Jennifer Starr, Hygienist
Jennifer is a born and raised Texan. Always keenly interested in understanding how things work, a love for biology and an interest in healthcare led to a career in dentistry. Jennifer loves explaining the “why” in the dental treatment process. If you’ve ever wondered why we recommend a particular treatment plan, Jen will help you understand it! Outside the practice, she loves spending time with her husband and two kids, Memphis and Phoenix, and catching up on much-needed zzzs.
