I am incredibly fortunate to work with an absolutely amazing team of young ladies who are dedicated to doing their very best every single day. I absolutely love these ladies! I am proud to introduce the team that makes Children's Dentistry of Beaumont THE best pediatric dental office around
- Dr. LeeAnn McQuade
At CDB, we are proud that our Registered Dental Assistants are also licensed by the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners to place protective dental sealants, monitor patients receiving nitrous oxide and perform coronal polishing (part of the "cleaning"). Not all RDAs can boast these certifications, so know that your loved one(s) are in the hands of experienced, licensed, caring experts.
Director of Operations
Kelly is a native Texan; growing up in a town called Boerne in the Texas Hill Country. She spent 20+ years working in many facets of the dental industry. She has worked just about every position in a practice from a clinical assistant to business manager, she worked for the University of Texas Health Science Center- San Antonio Dental School Department of Pediatric Dentistry, Kelly was also the Business Manager of a Multi-Specialty Medical and Dental facility in New Mexico and worked in dental sales for a Swiss Company that specializes in oral hygiene products and education.
Kelly Spent most of her career operating her own dental consulting business which took her all over the US to work with 100's of dental practices of all types wanting to be more successful. This is what led her to Beaumont.
Dr. LeeAnn McQuade had been a long time client of Kelly's. They have worked together since the ground was broken for Children's Dentistry of Beaumont and it quickly became a home away from home for her. Kelly works as the director of operations and sometimes you can even find her filling in chairside and interacting with the children.
Kelly now resides in Beaumont where she spends her time visiting her two adult children, showing her horses in various western performance events, raising mini Australian Shepherds and Maine Coon cats and even a few foals each year. She is also a board member of Tri City Corvette club and has a classic c3 corvette you might see her in once in a while. Her love and passion for animals is as great as her love for dentistry. If she is not in the office she is definitely outside cruising the back roads or working with her animals.
"My passion has always been with dentistry and healthcare; I love working with children with special healthcare needs! I grew up in this field and could not imagine doing anything else. Taking my education and creating a career in a field I am so passionate about has been a dream come true- My greatest reward is to help someone achieve a goal, work through the pain of change and watch them grow," said Cody who has also completed training in communication, behavioral psychology, mediation, leadership and effectiveness.
Business Team Leader
Lacey is one of the sweet & helpful voices you'll hear when you call our office. Lacey has been with our office since the beginning and has been instrumental to our office growing into a business that can provide such excellent care to so many children in our area. Lacey's second title is TREATMENT COORDINATOR, so when it is time to check out after your child's visit, it's time to see Lacey. If Dr. McQuade has recommended that your child return for a treatment appointment, Lacey will review Dr. McQuade's recommendations with you, help you find the most convenient time available to schedule and review your payment options with you, if you wish. Lacey spent many years working for a pediatrician, so she knows kids! And she can often answer those last minute questions that you think of right AFTER the doctor has left the room. Lacey and her husband have two sons that they devote their lives to, but EVERY once in a while, I think she might discuss payment options on one of them as well!

Clinical Team Leader
Antonia is a Registered Dental Assistant who is relatively new to our team, but definitely not to working with children. Antonia has a quiet way of helping children of all ages feel welcome and comfortable in our office. As the Lead Dental Assistant, Antonia is also credited with ensuring the highest level of cleanliness (very frequently above and beyond what is "required"), infection control, equipment maintenance, as well as keeping the rest of us (doctor, hygienist(s) and assistants) coordinated and moving smoothly throughout the day. In addition to her dental assistant certification, Antonia is also certified by the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners to perform coronal polishing and to place protective dental sealants. (And although there really isn't a certification for it, Antonia must be recognized for being able to fix just about anything!!!!)
Registered Dental Assistant
Jackie is a Registered Dental Assistant who also is new to our team but not to pediatric dentistry.... We know her previous position misses her but we're grateful she decided to join pediatric dentistry full time! Jackie's sweet smile and attention to detail make her a perfect fit for our clinical team and she has fit seamlessly from her first day. She is extra talented at being able to take x-rays on even the most hesitant children. She embraces the CDB philosophy: treat every child as our own. We know that you and your child will see her sparkling, friendly eyes and immediately feel more at ease and her soothing voice will seal the deal on any anxiety your child may have thought they had!
