Meet the Team

Dr. Kurt Calender

Dentist Owner

Dr. Calender is kind and gentle, compassionate, thorough and meticulous.  He is a veteran dental professional, and keeps up with technology for his patients’ best care and comfort.  He loves cycling, fly fishing, hiking, sailing, and visiting their grandchildren in Colorado.  

Lynne Calender

Practice Administrator

Lynne graduated from Oral Roberts University with a BA degree in English.  She then continued her administrative career by serving in a small law firm in southern California.  After their move to Texas, where she grew up, Lynne spent many years as a volunteer in their children’s schools, including one year as the Concessions Chairman for the Keller HS Athletic Booster Club, which supports all the sports school-wide.  A few years ago she came into the practice in an official capacity as the practice administrator, where she enjoys working with Dr. Calender and their wonderful team to provide the best patient experience possible.



Office Manager, Insurance Coordinator

Joni is the face of the practice!  She is also a skilled dental professional veteran, coming from a dental assistant/front office position to office manager with us.  She now keeps us all connected and running smoothly.  Joni also serves as our expert insurance coordinator and is an excellent patient advocate; she's the one you want on your team!  She is our office “hostess” and resident prayer warrior and is very compassionate, and she extends her hospitality to us all.  She loves her faith, family, friends, and quilting, which she says is cheaper than psychotherapy.  So glad to have her here!


Treatment Coordinator

Susan is both very friendly and knowledgeable, with several years in the dental field at both back and front office departments.  She does a masterful job of "air traffic control" for us, keeping patients flowing smoothly in four rooms with three providers all day long.  So glad to have her on our team!


Registered Dental Assistant

Kellie is one of our two favorite chairside assistants!  Graduating from the Health Occupation Students of America program at Garland High School,  she is a long-time Fort Worth-area resident, and brings her expert experience and fun-loving personality to our home-town dental community.  Kellie never meets a stranger and her guidebook is full of fun people and places.  She adds much to a safe, enjoyable experience for both our patients and Dr. Calender.  She also has a lovely daughter and two fun Dachshunds. We’re glad to have her on our team!


Registered Dental Assistant

Kim is our newest dental assistant and we couldn’t be more grateful for her calm, pleasant personality and capable skills.  She is a local girl who grew up in Fort Worth and graduated from the College of Health Care Professions located there.  She also has two years as a leader for Young Life on her resume, including a fun summer at camp in Colorado.   Kim enjoys her sweet kitty and time with her family.  We’re glad she's on our team!
