Dr. Leslie Farias

Dr. Farias moved to the Houston area at the age of 16 and was part of the first graduating class at Kingwood High School. She continued her education at the University of Houston, where she received her Bachelor of Science. Shortly after, she received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Texas School of Dentistry in Houston. Immediately after graduating, she began work as an associate in the Northwest Houston area in 1995 and has been serving this area ever since. She is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), Texas Dental Association (TDA), and the Greater Houston Dental Society. 

 

In 2002, she purchased her own practice. Several years later, she designed a new office and relocated the practice in 2013. 

 

Dr. Farias is married to her husband Carlos, who can often times be spotted at the office. She has three children: Ivonne, Danny, and her maltipoo Kiko. She enjoys spending time with her family and traveling to any place she can relax poolside.

 

Dr. Farias is passionate about superior quality dentistry and gentle patient care. By far, her favorite part of the job is the look of joy when patients finish treatment. The reaction from a satisfied patient motivates her drive for perfection.

She loves establishing patient rapport and considers it an honor to serve our patients.

Marjorie has been married for 36 years and has two daughters, one son, and five grandchildren. She enjoys traveling and visiting her family. Here at home, she likes to be outside gardening and working with her animals.

 

Marjorie has a very soft and gentle demeanor, which makes her perfect to work with our youngest patients. Working with children is one of her favorite parts of the job. She also loves the relationships she is able to make with her patients and fellow team members.

Eileen - Hygienist

Eileen has been working in dentistry for 35 years, 13 of those years with Dr. Farias. Born and raised in Houston, she attended the same elementary school as Carol, St. Rose of Lima and then graduated from St. Pius high school in 1978.

Claudia is a very noticable "people person," and loves interacting with her patients, many of whom have known her for the last 12 years. She enjoys making bleaching trays in the lab and seeing patients show off their new smile after whitening treatment. 

Carol - Sterilization & Hygiene Assistant

Carol brings energy to the office. She has been working in dentistry for 15 years, six of those years with Dr. Farias. She was born and raised in Houston, a Cypress-area native. When she was 16 years old, her family moved her to the country, but she came back to Houston as fast as she could! She coincidentally attended the same elementary school as Eileen, St. Rose of Lima and then graduated from St. Pius high school.

 

Carol is married with three sons, two daughters-in-law, and one grandchild! In her spare time, she can be found browsing through Pinterest, which fuels her hobbies of sewing, crafting, and gardening.

 

Carol is extremely family oriented, which may be why her favorite part of the job is the family friendly atmosphere of the practice. She is an invaluable asset to our office family. 

Nancy - Receptionist

Nancy is the newest member of the team, joining the practice in the summer of 2015. She has been working in dentistry for the past five years and brings a fresh and new perspective to the office.

Nancy is mom to a 5 year old​ poodle named Fluffy, who keeps her busy when she's not at the office. She enjoys hobbies such as bowling, swimming, and traveling. She is outgoing and is immediately recognizable as the friendly voice on the phone, or the smiling face at the front desk. Her favorite part of the job is interacting with and taking care of the patients that come through the door. 

Carlos - Office Manager

Carlos, although not a dentist, has been inadvertently involved with dentistry for as long as he has been married to Dr. Farias. As an entrepreneur, he runs the business side of the practice, and hopes to one day win the title of Dr. Farias' boss! He is always on the move, but still finds time to spend days at the practice to interact with the team and the patients. 

 

He was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and moved to Houston at the age of 19. He met his wife while in college, and they have been married since 1990 - before she was officially "Dr. Farias." He has a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Houston, and primarily works as a realtor throughout the greater Houston area.
