Dawn Henderson, Office Manager


I relocated to the Temple/Belton area more than sixteen years ago when my Husband, after serving twenty-two years in the Air Force, accepted a teaching position at Temple High School.

I joined Dr. Fort’s team in 2003 and have thirty-four years of dental office experience. It is my pleasure to treat the best people in town. They are actually more like family than they are patients.

When I am not at the office, I spend my time with my husband, daughter, and son in law and my two sweet grandsons (I’m not biased!!). We like to travel, go boating on Lake Belton, go to the Zoo, waterparks, hiking, and of course I love to shop. When I’m at home I enjoy snuggling with my three fur babies.

Gladys Jimenez, Dental Receptionist


I have been working with Dr. Fort since 2010 and have been working in the customer service industry for over twenty years. I was born and raised in Temple and also raised my family here.

I can assist you to schedule an appointment, verify your insurance, or answer questions you may have whether we are speaking on the phone or here during your appointment. I am fluent in both English and Spanish. It is important to me that you feel at ease and have your questions answered so that you feel comfortable and confident about your treatment decisions.

I enjoy spending time with my children, grandchildren and friends.

Greta Delgado, Dental Assistant, RDA


I have been working with Dr. Fort since 1993 and have over 20 years of experience in the dental field. I was born and raised in Temple and raised my Family in the Temple-Belton area.

I love to get to know our patients and make them feel comfortable during their dental visit while providing the best quality care available.

I also love to spend time with my husband of twenty-five years as well as my two daughters. I enjoy watching football, reading, and exercising on my time off.

Kim Campbell, Dental Assistant, RDA


I am a registered dental assistant and have been with Dr. Fort’s office since 2016. I enjoy spending time with our patients and making sure they feel comfortable while visiting our office.

I am married and have three boys. In my spare time, I enjoy camping, cooking, and spending time with my family.

Inna, Chairside Assistant


My husband, our three children and I fled Ukraine at the end of December 2022.  And what a journey it has been!!!  We arrived to Texas directly and we are totally blown away by all the help, kindness, hospitality, and care that Americans have given us.  Dr. Fort has employed me as a dental assistant in his wonderful, very friendly clinic in March of 2023.  Even though I have 18 years of experience in the industry, this year is the best one yet for me.  I am excited and grateful for the opportunity to provide the best care for our clients.  Thank you United States, thank you Texans, God Bless America!!! 

Valerie, Registered Dental Hygienist


I attended WCJC where I earned my associate of science degree in dental hygiene in 2011. I enjoy the one on one time I get to spend with each patient and the positive impact a healthy smile can have on their life. My goal is to make every patients experience comfortable without fear or anxiety.

Born in Temple, TX, I have lived in the area most of my life. My husband and I have two amazing children. Much of our spare time is spent cheering them on at the ball fields or with friends and family.
