Nairovi Guadarrama (Robi)
I graduated from Conroe High School in 2010. I attended the Texas School of Business and receive a RDA diploma, March 2012. My most interest in working in the dental feel is the communication with the patients and the joy to see their before and after results that can impact their life's.
I was born and raised in the Houston area and moved to North Houston after college. I attended Sam Houston State University where I received a bachelors degree in Psychology with a minor in Creative Writing. I am a few hours away from completing my Masters Degree. I am also currently in a dental assistant program here in The Woodlands. I truly enjoy working with the ladies here at Laraway Family Dentistry and could not be more lucky to work for such wonderful doctors! I spend most all of my free time between my family and my husbands, family is the world to us!
I grew up in the family business which was retired after thirty years of business. I then decided to go into the dental field. I became a dental assistant for five years. I decided to stay home and became very involved in my kids school and their activities and was a Girl Scout leader. I've been working in the dental field for twelve years. I have nine kids between my husband and myself. We love family. Since finding Laraway Family Dentistry I enjoy coming to work.
