Simone

I was born and raised in South Louisiana. I sure do love the culture and food. My husband and I love going on hikes and trying new restaurants. I enjoy working out, traveling, and spending time with my grandchildren and daughter. My favorite season is the Summer. I love warmer temperatures and the sunshine.

Simone has been working in the dental field for 32 years. She began her dental career as a dental assistant and eventually transitioned into leadership/treatment coordinator roles.

What is your idea of a perfect weekend?

It’s Summer. I am relaxing outside on my patio, listening to the birds along with my favorite music playing.

Myrissa

Originally, I grew up in sunny California, moved to green Tennessee, and then my husband, Jared, and I found our calling to Texas. If I am not doing dentistry, you’ll find my husband and me fishing or taking our dog, Duke, for walks and hikes. I enjoy spending my free time outdoors and enjoying fresh air and adventures.

Myrissa graduated Carrington College Sacramento in 2020 where she won the community service and Western Periodontal award. She started with Sky Creek Dental in 2024 where she aims to change the way people feel about themselves and their smiles. She takes a gentle approach to dentistry and her goal is to have our patients leave with a happy and healthy smiles. She’s excited to meet all the new faces that walk through our doors and welcome back our established patients.

If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be and why?

I would want the power to transport anywhere in the world because I hate waiting in TSA lines. One stipulation would be that my luggage could transport with me. I need my vacation clothes, of course! 

Sara Bustos, DMD

Since the young age of seven, my passion for dentistry has been an unwavering force that has guided my aspirations and fueled my pursuit of a profession where creativity, aesthetics, empowerment, and the marvels of science and technology seamlessly converge. Dentistry, for me, is not merely a career choice; it is a calling that resonates with my innate desire to make a meaningful impact on the lives of individuals.

I was born in Rhode Island and have lived in Texas for 26 years. I am a huge hockey fan and spend most of my weekends at my boyfriend’s hockey games. I love going to new restaurants and trying different foods. 

Gina went to Irving High School and graduated in 2001. In 2019, Gina decided on a career change and enrolled in a dental assisting program. As someone who always loved going to the dentist, she knew it was a field she’d grow and thrive in.

Kat

I am originally from upstate New York, a little small town called Oswego right on Lake Ontario. I moved to the great state of Texas in the summer of 2022 with my husband. He was stationed at Fort Drum in upstate New York and when his service was over, we decided to move back to his hometown in Rhome, TX. We love the hot weather and southern hospitality! For fun I like to try new restaurants and go for walks.  

While Kat was in New York, she graduated from a dental assisting program at Cayuga Community College. When moving to Texas, she went through another program at Tarrant County College to become a Registered Dental Assistant.

What is your idea of a perfect weekend?

The perfect weekend to me would be spent at the lake on a boat with my family.

Jessica Geurkink, DDS

I knew I was going to be a dentist the day I got my braces off in the seventh grade. There is nothing quite like having your smile transformed. Dentists have such a wonderful opportunity to change people’s lives by improving their smile, raising their confidence, and relieving their pain. I am so fortunate to be a part of this profession and to serve my community.

I love connecting with my patients on a personal level and partnering with them to improve their oral health. I enjoy getting to know my patients and learning how I can serve their individual needs and make them as comfortable as possible. I have a particular passion for cosmetic dentistry and love to create something beautiful and leave my patients smiling bigger than they ever have before.

Dr. Geurkink, or “Dr. G” as her patients call her, is a Texas native. She grew up in Allen, TX, and went to Baylor University in Waco where she graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Neuroscience. She graduated first in her class from Texas A&M Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, TX. She has practiced in both Texas and Arkansas and is active in the Academy of General Dentistry. She considers herself a life-long learner and loves to take continuing education courses to add new techniques and technology to her practice. She is proud to be a part of the Sky Creek Dental team.

Dr. G spends most of her time with her husband and their two sons. They love to spend time with their extended family playing tennis, going to Colorado, and going to the lake.

Rachel

Born and raised in Texas, I have been happy to call the Keller area my home since 2004, where I work, worship, and play.  I am the proud mom of three boys – the oldest is a mathematics major and plays percussion in the wind ensemble at Trinity University, the middle one is a percussionist at Keller High School, and the youngest is a percussionist and athlete at Keller Middle School.  When not attending band or sporting events, I enjoy working out, traveling, trying new restaurants, and going to the movies.

Rachel is brand new to the dental field.  After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin with a bachelor’s degree in Applied Learning and Development, she comes to us from the education field, where she taught for seven years and directed a private preschool for nine years.  She is using those organization and management skills to manage our office in the role of Team Lead. 

“Let all you do be done in love.” – 1 Corinthians 16:14

If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be?

If I were a superhero, I would have the ability to duplicate myself, so I could be a full-time mom and full-time employee so as not to miss out on anything.  One of me might be full-time vacationing too!

Amber

I was born and raised in Fort Worth. I lost my mom when I was 14 so my aunt raised my little brother and me. My husband and I have been married for 16 years. We were not blessed with children; however, we do have three fur babies. I have three amazing nephews that my brother and sister-in-law let me spoil, so I get to be the fun Auntie Am! My husband and I are old souls and love anything that has to do with cars – we have seven! I also love baking, reading, traveling, crafting, and spending as much time with my family that I can. My birthday is in October, so fall is my absolute favorite. I am that person that has her fall and Halloween decorations up on September 1st!

Amber earned a bachelor’s degree in English with the intention of becoming a teacher.  She started working in the dental field right after high school when her pediatric dentist hired her for a summer job, and 22 years later, she is still in it.  Amber has been at Sky Creek Dental since 2019 and truly loves what she does and enjoys talking to and getting to know our patients.

“But the Lord stood with me and gave me strength.” – 2 Timothy 4:17

What is your idea of a perfect weekend?

It’s October, there are zero chores to do, it’s 50 degrees outside, and the windows are open with a crisp breeze. I am under a cozy blanket, my favorite candle DW Homes, Warm Tobacco Pipe, is burning, and I am watching some of the classic Halloween movies.
