Andrea Govea, Dental Assistant

Andrea was born and raised in Austin Texas! She began her dental career in 2013 and has become well rounded in many dental specialties. Andrea began working in cosmetics and has broadened her experience to include general, surgical, orthodontic and neuromuscular dentistry. A little known fact is that she began her personal orthodontic treatment at the age of 20 and this sparked her interest in continuing on her dental journey through assisting school and to where she is today. Andrea is very proud of all she has learned and continues to learn in this awesome field of dentistry. Andrea and her husband George and I have a 9yr old little girl named Delilah, who is the center of their world.
