Hi, my name is Glaucia and I was born and raised in Brazil. Moved to the U.S. in 2004 after I got married to my also Brazilian husband. We have blessed family with 2 kids and a pair of parakeets that add much more life to our home. I have strong family ties and my place is always full of friends and families where we cook together, listen to good Brazilian and American Jazz and exercise fellowship. I have been exposed to Dentistry since childhood, helping my mother who was a dentist in Brazil for 37 years. Finished my training in Brazil in 1996 and move to UK to learn English in 2000. From there, I had the honor to work with highly recommended professionals, improving my skills and molding my quality of care. In the U.S., I gained deep knowledge in surgery and implants and now in cosmetics. Dentistry is my passion and I am truly blessed to be part of the Advanced Dental Care team.
Hello! My name is Jennifer, I go by Jenny, I am so happy to be a part of the Advanced Dental Care of Austin’s team. I have been a Dental Assistant in the Austin and surrounding areas since the 80’s. I got into the Dental field when I was 18 years old. Loved it then and I still do. My main goal is making my patients comfortable and well cared for during their dental experience, I am especially skilled to work with those who have fear in having their dental work. Over the years I have had a lot of experience in Cosmetic Dentistry and love my part in creating beautiful smiles.

Hi! my name is Purnima. I was born and brought up in India. I finished my training in India in 2010 and move to US after getting married to my husband Nalin. I love working with all of our patients. One of the most rewarding parts of being an Dental assistant is the happiness and appreciation our patients give us for what we do. We enjoy making people more confident in themselves . My coworkers and our easy-going patients make it a pleasure to be here each day. Our practice is a really fun place and I want all of our patients to be as comfortable as possible when they’re in the clinic. I love to be able to build a relationship with our patients over their time here. Outside of the office, I enjoy cooking and trying new recipes, spending time with friends and family, playing with my 4 yr old son, and going on walks while enjoying the outdoors.

Hi! My name is Betsey. I joined the team of registered dental hygienists here at Advanced Dental Care of Austin recently when the practice I had worked in for 20+ years merged with Dr. D’Abadie’s practice. I have enjoyed being in the dental field for over 30 years now. While growing up in Abilene, I started working part-time for my childhood dentist right after high school. This ultimately led me to dental hygiene school. I graduated from UTHSC-San Antonio and became a hygienist in 1988. After moving to Lubbock for a few years, I landed in the Austin area and have been here since 1992. I have two great kids that I love spending time with. My son is a student at Texas Tech and my daughter is a student at RRHS. I find being a dental hygienist to be very rewarding when I know I have made a difference in helping someone achieve dental health and have a positive dental experience. I look forward to meeting you and working together so we can meet your dental needs.

Her patients love her caring, patient, kind demeanor. “I believe in treating the patient in the same way I would want to be treated.

Dr. D’Abadie (pronounced dee-AH-ba-dee – we know you were wondering!) has committed his life to caring for his patients and staying at the forefront of dentistry. His knowledge and experience are impressive, and so is the list of techniques and procedures he has mastered. But what really stands out to patients is his devotion to their care and his enthusiasm for his job. Dr. D’Abadie’s directness and obvious competence put patients at ease right away. His confidence and charm aren’t lost on family, either. With four adult daughters of his own, Dr. D’Abadie values his family and community as much as his career.
