Dr. Kelly Gonzales, or “Dr. Kelly” as her patients like to call her, graduated from Texas A&M University in 2000 and completed her dental school training at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio in 2005. She graduated summa cum laude from both college and dental school.
Dr. Kelly completed her specialty training at Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas in association with Children’s Medical Center of Dallas and Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. The Pediatric residency program gave her the special skill set to treat children from infancy through adolescence and those with special healthcare needs.
Dr. Gonzales is a recent former President of the Texas Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and still serves on the board. She is also active in the American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists.
Dr. Kelly and her husband Adrian (a native Austinite and Texas Longhorn) have two wonderful and energetic children – Jaxon and Bella, both of which are destined to become either Red Raiders or Sooners due to the divided loyalties in the house.
Dr. Gonzales enjoys spending time with her family, working within the community, gardening, going to concerts, garage sales, and baking all sorts of treats!
Dr. Angela Loverich graduated magna cum laude from Austin’s own Saint Edwards University in 2006 and completed her dental education at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio in 2010. After practicing children’s dentistry in Houston for two years, she returned to San Antonio to complete her residency training in Pediatric Dentistry. While in residency, Dr. Loverich was able to travel to underserved areas of Texas to provide care to children with limited ability to obtain dental care.
Dr. Loverich’s research study, completed during her residency training, was published in Pediatric Dentistry, the official publication of the pediatric dentistry community.
Dr. Loverich is the current Vice President and continuing education chairman for the Texas Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. She also continues to be an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, Texas Dental Association and the American Dental Association.
The Loverich family has grown by 2 since Dr. Loverich started at Star Smiles. Life with the girls has been such a fun adventure. You can find them exploring new parks and taking family bike rides with the kids in the surrounding area. When it gets too hot, you may find them exploring different libraries or taking a dip in Austin’s Deep Eddy pool.
As you know Governor Abbott has loosened Covid restrictions for the state of Texas recently which go into effect tomorrow Wednesday March 10, 2021. We wanted to inform everyone that we will continue to require masks while in our office and limit the amount of persons in our office for the safety of our staff and patients. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate through this.
