Meet Dr. Michelle Gaona

Dr. Michelle Gaona loves being a dentist because it gives her a unique ability to connect with others. Because family has always been an important part of her life, Dr. Gaona believes that healthy living starts in the home and is excited to help patients of all ages achieve and maintain healthy smiles.

Dr. Gaona received her B.S. in Biochemistry from Texas A&M University, where she also studied music. After college, Dr. G returned to her hometown of Houston and earned her D.D.S. degree from the University of Texas School of Dentistry. Dr. Gaona’s love of children has led her to dedicate much of her spare time to working with Texas Children’s Hospital, and she also maintains membership in the American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, and the Greater Houston Dental Society.

When she’s not busy taking care of her patients, Dr. G enjoys staying fit, volunteering with the Junior League, and spending time outdoors with her fiancé Michael. Dr. Gaona lives in Lufkin with her mini dachshund Lilly.
