What Sets Us Apart
Our team knows that not everyone enjoys visiting their dental family. Because of that, our patients experience comfort as though they are in their own home, from warm blankets and headphones to aromatherapy and lemon-scented warm towels to refresh before they head back out to their busy lives.
Over the past 40 years, Smile Fort Worth has earned the reputation as being a very conveniently located family practice that saves busy families time. Our team has more than 150 years of combined dental experience, giving patients the confidence that they’re receiving the very best in dentistry from people who genuinely care.

Getting to know my patients and hearing about all the happenings in their lives is one of the best parts of my job. It’s why I consider my patients to be more like my friends than anything else.
Dr. Matt Wilkinson
Being a dentist is such a privilege! I am very grateful to be part of such a wonderful profession. I love helping people, getting to know them, and having the honor of being part of their lives.
Dr. Robert D. Batton
I am very thankful for the profession of dentistry and orthodontics, and the many wonderful opportunities it affords me to serve my community in an important and close way; it allows me to raise and maintain my family in the wonderful environment of Fort Worth, Texas, which I consider the greatest city in the country, and to enjoy the independent practice of my chosen profession rather than a corporate one.
I’ve been enjoying practicing dental hygiene for over 18 years. I love building relationships with my patients, and I strive to make their experience enjoyable and relaxing while guiding them to great oral health.
I have been in the dental field since 2006, and am passionate about what I do. I have a son and a daughter that keep me very busy. We enjoy traveling, playing soccer and being outside.
I enjoy that I am able to impact people’s lives with making patients smile again. I’m honored to be a dental assistant and have the compassion and talent that patients need when they come to our office. Being an assistant for the past fifteen years has given me the opportunity to appreciate dentistry on a whole new level.
I have been in the dental field since 2009, I love building relationships with patients and helping people overcome their fears. My husband and I have two children. Outside of work I enjoy reading, sports events, and bike riding.
My name is Terri and what I like about dentistry is helping people maintain their smiles. Their smiles show confidence and happiness.
I have helped create happy beautiful smiles with Braces and Orthodontics for 25 years. My career has always been very rewarding. We offer Orthodontics for all ages, beginning around age 6. I have seen patients from childhood and watched them grow up to do orthodontics on their children. Making beautiful smiles make happy healthy patients. Our orthodontic patients see results quickly therefore they love to come see us for their monthly orthodontic visits. Our patients are a part of the Smile Fort Worth family.
I feel blessed to be working in a profession that I am excited about and still look forward to each day after 30+ years. My patients are friends and my co-workers are family. I love helping my patients achieve the healthy and beautiful smiles they always wanted and learning about the latest technology in dentistry so we can deliver “state of the art” care.
When I am not working, I enjoy cooking with our sons, gardening and working on our house with my husband Larry and reading. Also, I LOVE sports and am a certified tennis and swim coach for our daughter’s Special Olympic team.
I love helping people and that’s why I do what I do. My position gives me that opportunity every day. At the end of the day I go home and know that I made a difference, however small it might seem it made an impact in someone’s life. I love to share a friendly smile to calm a fear, a kind word to let someone know that they matter and a willingness to be of assistance to someone. That’s what I get to do each day and it’s pretty great.
I’m proud to say I’m going on my 7th year here at Smile Fort Worth. I live in Arlington and I’m blessed with 2 great kids. I think we have the best patients in town.
My name is Kathy and I was born in Gilmer Texas. Growing up I lived on Lake of The Pines in east Texas. I have many fond memories with my mom, dad and siblings of my summers fishing, swimming and camping in the fall.
At age 14 I moved to the metroplex and have lived here ever since.
I started my family at a very young age, but after looking back I think my youth made it easier to raise them.
I’m a proud mother and grandmother. I have 3 children, 1 daughter and 2 sons. I have 5 beautiful, healthy grandchildren. I love spending time with my family. They mean everything to me. I enjoy working with a family oriented group. Everyone has been so welcoming and I feel right at home.
I have been part of the Smile Fort Worth Family going on a year now & I’ve been in the dental field going on 10 years. Seeing people change their lives through their smile is what keeps me going.
I have been an orthodontic dental assistant since 2010 and I enjoy the process so much. I love watching my patients grow and to see their smile develop. I look forward to getting to know my patients on a personal level from the first visit to the big day when braces or Invisalign are finished!
What a blessing it is for me to give my patients a reason to smile.
New Patient Coordinator
I began my dental career as a dental assistant in 2010 right after high school. After graduating I knew I wanted to be in the medical field to help and educate people on their healthcare needs. I took a dental assisting course and fell in love with dentistry. I enjoyed assisting taking radio-graphs, assisting doctors with different procedures, and comforting patients before their treatment. I was always cross trained but finally made the transition to the front desk in 2017. There is never a dull moment in this field. I learn something new everyday and feel accomplished in knowing my team and I are making a difference in someone’s life.
