    Born and raised in San Antonio, Diane attended The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and majored in Dental Hygiene. She has been practicing for 20 years and has been committed to educating people on the importance of oral hygiene ever since. Her personal goal is to always provide the best possible care.

    I was born in San Antonio and I’m very grateful to be a part of the community that I was raised in. I attended the The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and graduated with a bachelors of science in Dental Hygiene. I have practiced for over 20 years and in that time have worked with many dentists. All About Smiles is truly a unique place to work because Dr. Patel and my coworkers create an atmosphere that fosters genuine empathy for patients, a commitment to educating people on the importance of oral hygiene, and of course tons of laughter and love. My personal goal is to always provide the best possible care. I am thankful that All About Smiles gives me the support to do so. Dr. Patel, while being very thorough with her work, is kind, patient and always smiling.

    While not at the office, I enjoy baking and gardening. Pixar and Disney films are all I watch. I’m also a not-so-secret pinterest addict! But my absolute favorite activity is spending time with my husband and three dogs. While on pinterest of course.

  • Tammy Mann
    Office Manager

    “Queen of the Office”
    Tammy enjoys interacting with patients and passionately educates them about their dental health and oral hygiene. She is extremely passionate about dentistry and has been working in the dental field for over 10 years.

    I have worked in the dental field since high school and with many dentists until I met Dr. Patel. I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Dr. Patel a few years ago where she was an associate. I told her back then that if she ever decided to open a practice that I would love to be her office manager. Dr. Patel’s work ethics, personality and care for her patients is above and beyond what I have ever seen. She is an exceptional dentist who will listen and find a way to meet your needs. I’m so thankful that our paths crossed. I am passionate about dentistry not only because I am meeting patients but I am gaining friends. I care about what I do and love to educate my patients about dental health.

    I have lived in San Antonio for almost 30 years. My father was in the Air Force and we were stationed here in 1974 and at that time he realized that he wanted to retire here. He loved the weather and the friendly people. I always tell him he made a great decision! I am very involved with the athletic department at my son’s high school. I have a 22-year-old son attending the US Naval Academy and a 16-year-old at Steven’s high school. Football is our favorite past time!

  • Mitch
    Administrator

    Originally from Tennessee, Mitch jumped at the chance to join the team and promptly moved to. He strives to ensure each and every patient has best possible experience by making sure they are comfortable and at ease at all times.

    Originally from Tennessee, I’ve grown to love San Antonio as a big city with a small town feel. Initially a patient, I was given the opportunity to join the team and I jumped at the chance! The casual, friendly atmosphere made me feel at ease as a patient, and I strive to promote that same feeling while I’m at the front desk. I love seeing patients smile, and I love it even more when they leave with an even bigger smile than before.

    Away from the office I love to cook, spend time with friends and explore cool new restaurants around town.
