Our Dental Staff
Director of Operations
Xtine first stepped through the doors of BridgeView Dental in November 2000, the very first day the practice opened, and has been a fixture of the team ever since. A passion for helping others led her to dentistry in 1999 after moving to Austin from San Jose, CA in 1995. Now over two decades later, she continues to be a pillar of the office by forming meaningful bonds with the team and patients. Xtine draws from her early life experiences immigrating to America in search of opportunity. Originally from South Vietnam, her family arrived in 1982 eager for a better future. She applies this optimistic spirit and dedication into advocacy work for every patient. Whether answering questions, coordinating appointments, discussing financing options - Xtine strives to brighten smiles and change lives with her trademark blend of kindness and outgoing personality. Time away from the office often involves traveling with her husband, either in their RV or Harley-Davidson. During football season, you can find her boisterously cheering for the Texas Longhorns and Houston Texans. At home, Xtine has raised three beloved pitbulls - Bullit (dad), Kila (mom) and Blu (son). Though Bullit has passed, Kila and Blu remain by her side. Sundays are reserved for making memories with family - usually spending quality time with her parents and as an added bonus- her younger brother when he visits Austin.
In 1994, Paulina came to Austin from the small Island of Moch in Micronesia. Paulina knew little about oral hygiene except brushing and pulling teeth out when they hurt until she came to Texas. She has always been passionate about helping people, and that’s what led her to what she’s doing today. Paulina has been a dental assistant, and loving it, since 1998. She joined the BridgeView Dental team in 2006. Paulina loves to learn and is dedicated to finding new and better ways to care for her patients. It’s important to her to make sure you are comfortable in the chair and that every patient is receiving the best dental treatment available. She loves the ability dentistry has to transform a person’s life through their smile. When Paulina is not at the office, you can find her spending time with her family, especially her two sons.
Hailing from nearby Georgetown, Miranda found her way to Austin when career and family ties brought her to the city. A decade into her dental career, Miranda is devoted to advancing her clinical capabilities through continued training and education while excelling in patient care everyday. As a Dental Assistant, Miranda finds purpose in positively impacting patients’ lives, whether through clinical work or simple supportive gestures. She believes even small differences matter when boosting people’s confidence and oral health. When not administering excellent care for our patients, you may find Miranda fueling her spirit with her Mexican food favorites or at home loyally supporting her favorite football teams, Texas Longhorns and Dallas Cowboys. Though work and loved ones necessitated her relocation to Austin years ago, Miranda feels right at home improving smiles and lifting spirits at BridgeView Dental.
Elisa found her way to the eclectic city of Austin by way of Amarillo, Texas after her husband’s job moved them here in 2022. Elisa cultivated her passion for oral health care and honed her clinical skills while earning her Dental Hygiene degree back home in Amarillo. As a Hygienist at BridgeView Dental, Elisa finds great purpose in educating patients on proper cleaning techniques while providing treatments tailored to achieve the smiles they’ve always dreamed of.
