As a third generation Garvin County resident, it has been my dream to return to my home county and be able to provide comprehensive dental care to my family, friends and neighbors. My goal to help you have a smile that you can be proud of; a smile that radiates happiness and confidence.
As a child, I was actually terrified of my dentist, in my eyes he was a big man with scary instruments and I did not want them anywhere near me. My mother could tell you the story of how I was so unhappy that the doctor couldn’t even complete the visit. So, as you can imagine, she was quite shocked when I told her that I wanted to become a dentist. When trying to decide what route of the medical profession I wanted to do, I thought back on all the years of dental work due to a high caries risk and crooked smile. Now when I look in the mirror, I realize how much dentistry changed my life.
A little bit about myself, I am married to my high school sweetheart, Michael Goins and together we have an awesome one-year-old son, Jameson- who is the light of our lives. We reside in Elmore City on my family cattle ranch.
My love for Garvin County runs deep as both sets of my grandparents and parents are from the area. My maternal grandparents -Raymond and Mary Temple operate a cattle ranch in Elmore City where my mother, Mary Ann Temple-Lee was raised. This is where I spent most of my childhood and where I was taught to work hard and love the country life style.
My paternal grandparents, Monroe & Jan Lee managed a dairy in Wynnewood for years until after my father- Kevin Lee graduated high school. One special thing about me taking over the Wynnewood clinic is that my father was actually a patient of the clinic when he was younger!
While growing up, I enjoyed showing livestock and participating in various leadership opportunities through 4H and FFA. I also enjoyed playing basketball and cheerleading. After graduating from Pauls Valley Highschool, I attended Oklahoma State University where I received a B.S. in Animal Science. I was then fortunate to be able to remain in Oklahoma by being accepted into The University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry. This is where my love for organized dentistry grew through involvement with the American Student Dental Association as the OUASDA Vice-President. I am now currently serving as the New Dentist Trustee for the Oklahoma Dental Association. I am also a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Dental Political Action Committee. I enjoy going to dental conferences and continuing education courses to expand my knowledge and clinical skills to provide the best care for my patients.
Since graduating from Dental School, I have spent the last three years as an associate dentist in southern Oklahoma at Storts Family Dentistry. I loved my time in the practice with my awesome team and patients, but the distance is very hard as a new mom. This is why I am so excited to be able to take over Wynnewood Family Dental and be so close to home. I love the small-town life and I am so excited to be able to provide dentistry in county that built me.
