Kim Schmidt

I was born in south Texas about 30 miles south of San Antonio. I grew up with show cattle and showed performance horses. I married and in my early twenties moved to Waco.  We owned and operated a working cattle ranch and a pecan orchard.  I have one son who resides in Bryan, Texas.  I have been a registered Dental Assistant for over 25 years.  Six years ago I moved to East Texas and remarried. My husband and I built a home in Pittsburg, Texas , where we live.  My husband raises bucking bulls and I train and run barrel horses. I also give riding lessons to clients in the surrounding area. We attend Bar Nun Cowboy Church in Omaha, Texas. I work in my community and support several outreach programs for woman and children. I have been with Dr. De Santis for over 3 years.

I am the office manager at Dr. Rocco P. De Santis D.D.S.. I have been a part of  Dr  Rocco’s Smile team since2019.  I enjoy learning something new every day and learning many aspects of the dental field.  I love seeing patients leave our office with a smile when many have not arrived with one.

Dr. De Santis, our Assistants, our Hygienists, and office personnel comprise a team that is knowledgeable , compassionate and patient focused.  It makes me happy to be an integral part of DR. Rocco’s Smile Team.

Angela Sipes

Hi! My name is Angela. I joined Dr. Rocco’s Smile Team in May 2006. I work along with Dr. Rocco to help you achieve a beautiful, clean, healthy smile. My goal is to make you as comfortable as I possibly can while achieving that healthy smile. I am a 2005 graduate of TJC with an Associate of Science in Oral Hygiene and General Studies Associate of Science. Patients ask me all the time, “How do you do what you do?” The truth is, it breaks my heart to see someone that is ashamed to smile. So, when I can help them smile again it makes my job the most enjoyable job in the world.

Outside of the office I enjoy spending time with my husband and my two boys. We love spending time outdoors. My two favorite hobbies are bow hunting and baseball. I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve and maintain that beautiful, healthy smile.
