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.

Letti Lim-Kosel, Hygienist, RDH


I earned my bachelor of science degree in Dental Hygiene from Texas Women’s University in 1986. I love dentistry and enjoy the personal relationships I develop with each and every patient.

I take delight in spending time with my son Kennedy, working in Real Estate, cycling, travelling, and being with my family and friends.

Chris Stockwell, Hygienist, RDH


I have been working with Dr. Fort as a Hygienist since 2016.

I was born in Irving, Texas and graduated from Southlake High School. After high school, I attended Stephen F. Austin University for two years to prepare for Dental Hygiene School. I then obtained my Dental Hygiene license from the University of Texas Dental Branch Dental Hygiene Program in Houston Texas.

During my career, I have had the opportunity to become a licensed Dental Hygienist in California and Arizona as well as practice hygiene in Beaufort, South Carolina on the Marine Corps Air Station. I take pride in helping my patients achieve optimal oral health in a comfortable, caring environment. My goal is for all my patients to have a positive dental experience.

When not seeing patients, I enjoy working on my farm as well as my family’s farm in Belton, Texas.
