Leslie Moore

Registered Dental Hygienist, Puffer Dental

I’ve been a part of this Dental Team since 2010. I’ve worked as a dental hygienist for almost 20 years and graduated from Tyler Junior College in 2001. It is gratifying for me for me as a hygienist to give care to my patients in a calm and caring atmosphere where their comfort and wellbeing is the main concern. I love spending time with my husband Todd, our children Cash and Lauren and playing with our dog Dez. We are definitely a sports family, so you can usually find us at a baseball or softball tournament most weekend cheering our kids on!!

Lynsey Moore

Registered Dental Hygienist, Puffer Dental

I have been working as a dental hygienist for the past 8 years. I grew up in Kentucky and attended Western Kentucky University. I have enjoyed living in East Texas for the past 5 years. I recently became a member of Puffer Dental (June 2018) and I have loved every minute of it. The staff is wonderful and truly cares for our patients. I love getting to know my patients and helping them reach their optimal oral health. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband Dustin, and our 2-year-old son Sawyer. I stay very busy with my family and I also love visiting my family in Kentucky.

Raven Williams

Registered Dental Hygienist, Puffer Dental

I am originally from Louisiana. I graduated dental hygiene school at Tyler Junior College in 2018 and in that same year I joined the Puffer Dental team. Being a hygienist makes my heart very happy knowing I am able to get to know my patients as well as providing great care and education on how to give them a healthy and beautiful smile. I strive to make sure my patients have a great experience and want to come back. I am married to my husband, Kendal, and we have a precious daughter named Livi Kase and our handsome fur baby, Bear. In my spare time, I love spending time with my family and our families back home in Louisiana, cooking, and watching football.

Linda Perryman

R.D.A – Financial Coordinator, Puffer Dental

I have worked in dentistry for the past 40 years, the last 10 years at this office. I can honestly say this is one of the best offices I have ever worked at. Dr. Puffer is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Not only is he an excellent dentist, he has the ability to put patients at ease. He wants the best for his patients and is always happy to take the time to explain things and answer any questions a patient might have. There isn’t a day that goes by that we do not receive several compliments on how gentle Dr. Puffer is and how glad they are he is here. Our staff is more like a family than coworkers. Everyone is always willing to help each other both in and out of the office. Everyone is knowledgeable about dentistry and will always be happy to answer any questions a patient might have. The best part of working here is getting to know the patients and their families. We have patients that have been coming to this office for over 30 years! It amazes me how a trip to the dentist can change a person’s smile and outlook on life. My husband and I have three adult children and one precious grandson. In our spare time, we enjoy gardening and traveling.
