Get to Know Dr. Alex

As the Founder of Kids Tooth Team, Dr. Alex’s goal was to create a pediatric dental office unlike any other. After nearly a decade of being in the profession, it became clear to her that dental offices were becoming more and more about the doctor and insurance companies and less about the patients and the families they serve. 

Dr. Alex hated seeing families waiting forever to see the doctor, only to be told that there was only one way to do things (the doctor’s way of course!). It drove her crazy to hear sales pitches or anyone recommending unnecessary treatment, especially to a child. And not to mention the lost look on a parent’s face as some random person in the office confusingly tried to explain an insurance plan or how much you may owe - they may as well have been speaking a different language. She knew that Kids Tooth Team had to do things differently.  

Dr. Alex is here to serve you and your child - bottom line! As a pediatric specialist with years of residency training and private practice experience, she offers a wide variety of minimally-invasive and surgically complex services. You can rest assured that Dr. Alex has extensive experience providing compassionate care, no matter your child’s needs. 

Dr. Alex takes your time very seriously and has many protocols in place at the office to ensure you aren’t waiting to see her, have a say in every step of the process, and stay informed about your insurance and coverage. She cares deeply about you and your family - something that you will sense the second you walk into our doors. There will never be a sales pitch and you will never hear the words: “This is the only way to do it.” We are here to offer you options that fit your child and their needs as well as your parenting philosophy, lifestyle, and budget.

Get to Know Dr. Roberto

Dr. Roberto grew up in North East Texas and attended college at the University of Arkansas. He decided he wanted to be a dentist at a young age and accomplished that goal by graduating from The University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio (UTHSCSA). After working 5 years as a general dentist he knew he wanted to pursue his passion of working with children and further his education by attending pediatric dental residency through a branch of UTHSCSA on the border in Laredo.

Dr. Roberto has a heart for service and has done volunteer dentistry in 14 different countries. His goal is to help educate kids about the importance of oral health, and he even published a children's book titled Sugar Bugs on that topic. Dr. Roberto is also passionate about involvement in the profession and is the incoming president of the Texas Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. Outside of the office Dr. Roberto loves hiking, getting into nature, and taking photographs.

Get to Know Dr. Keaton

Dr. Keaton is a local Austinite and grew up in Round Rock, Texas. His love of Texas kept him in state for his educational journey and he proudly graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in Kinesiology. After undergraduate, he went on to obtain his doctorate (DDS) from UT Health - San Antonio.

While in dental school, Dr. Keaton had a passion for working with kids. He was honored and excited to further his training by completing a post-graduate pediatric dental residency at UT Health - San Antonio.

Outside of the office he enjoys spending his time with his wife, two dogs, and son, Griffin. On the weekend you can find him binge-watching his favorite shows, going to concerts, and exploring the country on road trips.

Get to Know Dr. Tanvi

Hey y'all! My name is Dr. Tanvi (thun-V) and I was born and raised in Dallas, TX. I completed my undergraduate studies right here in Austin, which is when I fell in love with this vibrant city! I always knew I loved science and art, which is what led me to pursue dentistry at UTHSCSA. After working for a few years at a family practice, I realized how much I enjoyed working kids which is what brought me back to UTHSCSA to complete my post graduate pediatric dental residency. Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time and going on adventures with my husband Roshan. We love hiking, traveling, trying to new foods and are obsessed with all things related to Harry Potter. I look forward to making it a fun and comfortable visit at Kids Tooth Team!
