Alanna joined the team at Trade Winds Dental in 2008. She is the office administrator, front desk goddess, and your patient-care specialist. Alanna enjoys meeting, greeting and working with the awesome patients at Trade Winds Dental. She also loves the incredibly supportive and encouraging team here at the office. Alanna came to love the dental field through a major reconstruction of her own jaws and teeth. The result was truly life changing. She learned firsthand what a huge impact a person’s smile can have on his/her overall self-image and confidence. Because of this experience, Alanna is very happy to have the opportunity to be a part of helping patients experience the difference high quality dentistry can make in their lives.
Alanna currently lives in Jarrell, Texas with her two sons, twin daughters, and her mother who delivers blessings to the family every day. Alanna recently married an incredible man in the spring of 2014, a father of five himself, they increased their family size to a total of eleven. Alanna enjoys being involved with her church, gardening, spending time with their many animals (horses, dogs, cats, and rabbits), and laying poolside with a good book. She also constructed and renovated her home. She loves to wander through an old hardware store or antique store; it helps her breathe deeper!
Pattie Fennell, RDH
Pattie was born to be a dental hygienist. When she was a teenager, she was fortunate enough to babysit a dentist’s daughters. He invited her to come work in his office. While there, she was cross-trained at the front desk and as an assistant. Then, when it was time to attend college, it was a natural transition to dental hygiene. Pattie graduated Magna Cum Laude from Tyler Junior College in 1980 and has not slowed down since. Trade Winds Dental was honored to have such an experienced dental hygienist and caring individual such as Pattie join the team December 2013.
Pattie’s faith and family are centering, driving forces in her life. Although Pattie’s roots are in Tyler, Texas, she has lived in the Dallas area, as well as outside of Frankfurt, West Germany. She and her family have been in the Austin area since 1995. Pattie has been happily married to her high school sweetheart since 1979. She’s had the honor and privilege of raising two, grown children, a son and a daughter. Now she has the crowning addition of four precious granddaughters.
