The Amazing and Caring Team At Richardson General and Cosmetic Dentistry

Patti Peña

RDH – Business Assistant

Patti has been working at RCD for several years as both a dental hygienist and a business assistant. She enjoys the history she shares with many of our long term patient families.

When Patti is not working, she loves spending time with family, friends and dancing with her husband, Juan.

Blythe Starnes

RDH – Hygienist

Blythe has been in dentistry since 2017 and joined our team July of 2020. She earned an associates degree in dental hygiene from College of DuPage and a bachelors degree in health sciences and health professions from University of Missouri. Her passion as a healthcare provider is to educate her patients to reach their dental health goals and create a long-term trusting relationship. Guiding her patients to health and prevention of oral disease is her goal each day!

Originally from Chicago, Blythe loves to be outside in the Dallas sunshine playing golf or tennis with her husband, Luke. They also love to try new recipes and travel with friends and family. Last year they added a new furry family member named Lady. She is a year-old golden retriever and has brought so much love and joy with her bright personality!

Whitney Richardson

RDA – Lead Assistant

Whitney has been a registered dental assistant since 2015. With her 6 years of experience, she has gained knowledge in a variety of areas including general and cosmetic dentistry, Invisalign, endodontics, and dentures/partials. She loves her dental home and team who is a second family to her. She always brings smiles to our patient’s faces and loves being able to be a part of their journey to oral health and full confidence. When not at work, Whitney enjoys the outdoors with her family whose craziness keeps her sane.

Fun facts about Whitney: she rides motorcycles, has a drawer full of snacks at work and is always one step ahead of Dr. Naz. We love her dearly!
