Laura Phillips – Office Administrator
I have been in the dental industry for over 15 years. I bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in practice administration to Dr. Mammen’s office. I understand all aspects of financing, insurance, scheduling, and teamwork that are involved in achieving a perfect smile. My love and enjoyment of dentistry are evident with every patient I am able to help. I look forward to meeting you in the very near future!
I was born and raised in Galveston, Texas and relocated to Katy in 2021 with my husband, Mark and 2 children. In my spare time I love to travel, read, binge watch crime documentaries and am an amazing cake decorator!
Andy Vu – Dental Hygenist
I graduated in 2011 from Kingwood College with an Associate of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene. Since then, I have been practicing hygiene in Houston and have absolutely loved it. I believe my role as a hygienist is to educate patients about their oral health and help them reach any goals they may have.
I am a Houston native and enjoy traveling with my wife and my two elementary age children. I also enjoy spending my free time swimming, snowboarding, watching movies/TV and running. I am a Houston Marathon Legacy runner.
I am excited to work with Dr. Mammen and the rest of the team at Mint Family Dental. I look forward to meeting you!
Maria Font – Dental Hygienist
I have lived in Katy, Tx for over 16 years, but grew up in Venezuela. Since, I was twelve years old I wanted to be a dentist. To pursue my dream, I attended dental school at the Central University of Venezuela, where I received a Doctor of Dental Sciences (DDS) degree in 1996. After practicing in Venezuela for a few years, my husband was transferred to Houston. I then decided to go back to school and study something related to dentistry because that is my true passion.
In 2013, I received my Dental Hygiene AAS, from HCC Coleman College for Health Sciences, where I graduated with the Highest Honors. I am a member of the American Dental Hygienists’ Association, Greater Houston Dental Hygiene Society, and The National Society of Collegiate Scholars.
I am excited to be back at Mint Family Dental with Dr. Mammen and the team. It is a pleasure to work with Dr. Mammen because honesty, perfection, and excellence are the core values of our practice. I enjoy getting to know my patients individually and to provide the highest quality of dental care.
I really look forward to meeting you or seeing you again!
David Espino – Dental Assistant
I was born and raised in Houston and have been in dentistry for over 8 years. I am here to help make your visit and experience a great one while receiving the very best dental care. I treat every patient as if you are a family member. I am excited to be part of Dr. Mammen’s team and look forward to seeing you soon!
Melissa Wheeler – Patient Care Coordinator
I was brought up in Brazoria County where I enjoyed being involved with cheerleading and band. In 2018, my family and I moved to Katy and have loved it here. We have 3 amazing kids, 2 dogs and a cat. Our family spends a lot of time on the road traveling to Colorado and New Mexico.
Prior to being part of Dr. Mammen’s team, I worked in the Energy industry for many years. Although I am new to the dental field, I am a quick learner and love what I do! My priority in the Dental industry is to assist our patients with the best experience while in our care. I really look forward to meeting you!
