Meet the Dental Team Serving Pasadena TX


Our Office Manager



Nancy, our Business Manager of 15 years, is likely to be the first person you’ll meet in our office. She will greet you with a big, friendly smile and take the time to get to know you and your needs. Her dental assisting background and insurance expertise will help you maximize your benefits. Her genuine concern and attention to each patient is why she is invaluable to our office.

She is originally from Big Springs, Texas, but moved to Oregon, then California and finally back to League City, Texas. She resides with her husband of 33 years, Stan, and their Golden Retriever, Beau. She enjoys hunting with Stan (though, she probably has a romance novel tucked under her jacket) and going to Arts and Crafts shows.

In the past, she has helped with Dental Health presentations at her son Ryan’s school, but her favorite “job” is babysitting her adorable grandchildren.

Our Financial Coordinator



If you are wondering how to pay for your dental treatment, you will want to talk to Joan, our financial coordinator. She will go over the treatment plan with you and thoroughly explain your financial options in a private, relaxed atmosphere. Her open and bubbly personality will put you at ease! She never wants you to trade a dental problem for a financial problem.

Ask Joan for gardening tips – she has gorgeous roses and an incredible herb garden. She enjoys reading her Kindle, seeing movies, walking, and spending time with family. She has raised four children and continues a close relationship with them. Joan is the office “mom” and we depend on her to keep the “family” running smoothly.

Our Hygiene Team



Jody lived in ten other places before arriving in Houston, but she jokes that she got here just as soon as she could!

She graduated from The University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston Dental Hygiene School in 1989 with a 4.0 G.P.A. and began practicing with Dr. Covell the following fall. She offers 28 years of experience and annually attends continuing education courses to keep current with the latest technology and advances.

In her time off, she enjoys travel, selling on eBay, gardening, reading, decorating, and church work. Jody is married to Mike and they reside in Pearland. They have three grown children, eleven grandchildren and counting!



Dawn has been a Dental Hygienist since 1984. She enjoys providing outstanding patient care with a gentle touch. With her sincere, friendly team approach, she fits right into the fabric of our office.

She is originally from Pasadena but currently lives with her family in Clear Lake. Dawn and her husband, Gerald, have two adult children. As empty nesters, Dawn and Gerald enjoy family outings of golf and fishing and all aspects of finding new locations to catch the “big one”. Dawn loves old movies, old rock & roll, and shopping.

Dr. Covell’s Assistants



You are going to love our bubbly Carmen! She is sure to brighten your day with her easy smile and manner. She is highly skilled as a dental assistant and has been with Dr. Covell since 2014. Carmen will be more than happy to tell you about the newest member of her family!

In her free time, she enjoys reading romance novels, watching movies, doing volunteer work at church, spending time with her dogs (Mona & Junior), and playing video games with her husband, Mario, in his new man cave.

What she enjoys most? How we treat our patients!!



Shelby is the newest addition to our team. She has been an assistant for 18 years and loves seeing patients succeed in their treatment goals.

She is originally from California, but moved to Houston as a teenager. She is married to Mark and has three grown daughters, five grandchildren and counting. In her time off she enjoys working at her church, and hanging out with the grand kids.
