Office Manager

Erika joined Houstonian Dental in January of 2020, along with Dr. Arana and her wonderful patients. She has worked alongside Dr. Arana in overseeing their care for the past seventeen years, both as office manager and as a Registered Dental Assistant. She learned her trade in the US Navy where she served 1987 - 1992. Her experience and knowledge in the Dental Field, as well as her patient-first philosophy, has made her a valuable asset to the Houstonian Dental Team.

Erika resides in Houston with her husband Dan, who she met in the Navy. They just celebrated their 30th anniversary. They have one son, Dante, who is twenty-eight.
