Encouraging a healthy lifestyle through responsible oral healthcare.

Katy Dental Hygienist Daroma
Registered Dental Hygienist

Daroma received her bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene from Midwestern State University in 1983 and has been a hygienist at Crabtree Dental for nearly 30 years. Her longevity with our practice has allowed her to develop and enjoy ongoing relationships with the many patients she sees on a regular basis. She also works very well with children, alleviating any apprehension they may have. Her commitment to providing quality oral health care shows in her gentle yet thorough cleanings.

Daroma is married with two daughters. Taking care of her family occupies much of her time, along with school and church activities, but when she finds time for herself she enjoys camping, fishing, and working in her flowerbeds.

Katy Dental Hygienist Lara
Registered Dental Hygienist

Lara has been practicing dental hygiene at Crabtree Dental for most of her career. She graduated in 1999 from the University of Texas School of Dentistry. Lara enjoys dental hygiene because she meets a variety of people daily and she loves helping others have healthier, happier smiles.

Lara is a small town girl at heart and is glad that she and her family live and work in the Katy community because it feels like home. Lara is happily married to her husband, Joseph, who is an assistant principal at the Opportunity Awareness Center. They are parents to two beautiful children.

Dental Assistant Amber at Crabtree Dental
Registered Dental Assistant

Amber joined us after serving in the U.S. Air Force where she completed her education and served as a dental assistant. She has done charity work in Thailand and Japan, and has also done dental and forensic studies in Korea, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Iran. Amber enjoys traveling and meeting new people. She is a registered dental assistant certified in radiological procedures and she maintains her American Red Cross CPR certification.

She is originally from Katy, but she’s lived in five states and six countries. We are glad she has returned to her Katy roots and are proud to have a veteran on our dental team.

Sue at Crabtree Dental
Registered Dental Hygienist

Sue earned her bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and has been a dental hygienist for over 30 years. (She actually received her degree the same year that Dr. Ron Crabtree and Daroma did.) Sue was our go-to temp for years and we are thrilled that she has joined our team permanently.

Sue moved to Katy in 2003. When she’s not cleaning teeth she can be found volunteering or keeping track of her husband and two college-age boys. She loves meeting new people and traveling.
