Meet Our Team

Dr. Waneta Chenault

"I've known I wanted to be a dentist since early childhood (and go figure:  I grew up on a street named 'Colgate'...what a coincidence, right?!!).  Because I love human interaction, desired to be a health care provider, and enjoyed doing 'artsy' things with my hands, it didn't take much thought to realize that a career in dentistry would encompass all those things---a profession that would be rewarding to my soul.

I grew up in Lancaster, Texas, the only child of a hard-working machinist father who was an army MP that fell in love with my mother when he was stationed in Korea.  My parents did not have the means for higher education when they were growing up.  They worked very hard at giving me the life and opportunities that they never had.  They helped instill in me the ability to dream and accomplish anything that I set my mind to, and for that I am eternally grateful.

 After graduating as top female student from Lancaster High School, I attended East Texas State University in preparation for my dental education.  I graduated from Baylor College of Dentistry in 1997, and had the blessed opportunity to practice in a wonderful cosmetic family dental practice in Arlington, Texas.  After a few years, I decided that I wanted to settle into a nice quiet family-oriented area and open my own practice, which is what brought me to Highland Village in 2000.  My husband and I bought our first home in Flower Mound, and my practice in Highland Village was opened in April 2001. Over the years, I have had many wonderful opportunities ranging from lecturing about the latest technology in laser cavity detection and painless air abrasion cavity removal at the renowned annual Southwest Dental Conference, to giving oral health presentations at local schools (nothing is more rewarding than seeing a room full of eager kindergarteners tell me all about their recent visit by the Tooth Fairy)!

God has also blessed me with two daughters who are the absolute joys of my heart: Lisa, who is eleven years-old, and Kate, who is seven years-old.  I had also been the mommy for 13 years to a rescued miniature schnauzer affectionately named Ernie.  During a very difficult and heartbreaking time for our family, we had to say good-bye to our Ernie on February 28, 2013.  I am happy that he comfortably passed in my arms while I whispered calmingly in his ear that I will always love him.  I am happy that he is now healthy and joyfully playing at The Rainbow Bridge.  We had adopted a sweet 5 year-old rescue schnauzer, Bella, fostered by my hygienist, Susan, in May 2012.  Bella has done well in our family, and is a joy to help us through the mourning of Ernie.  When I lost my furry Mama's Boy, it instilled into me the burning desire to help find missing animals in out vicinity, and contribute to many local animal shelters/rescue groups.  You can ask my husband:  I am constantly sharing photos of animals who have been lost or are in urgent need of adoption by a loving person who can give them a forever home!"  

                                            



Scott, Business Manager

"Scott graduated from East Texas State University with a bachelor's degree in radio/television and a minor in advertising/marketing.  His professional studies also include computer networking, which led him to become a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer.  Scott has enjoyed shifting away from the corporate world by immersing himself in our small and cozy practice.  He's thrilled that he is finally able to offer the kind of exceptional customer service that his clients deserve by joining our practice.  Scott shares the same philosophy regarding the care we provide:  we provide the same level of care to our patients as we would want for ourself or our own family.

Scott's interests include spending time with family, World of Warcraft, playing the acoustic and electric guitar, going to the movies, camping, and listening to '80s metal music."
