Irma Rivera, RDA
Meet Irma Rivera, our office manager. Irma is a resident of Mesquite, TX and has worked in the dental field for over 10 years—8 of those being an RDA. She is an important asset to our office; she handles all the billing, scheduling and keeps our practice running! We don’t know what we would do without her. She is always ready to tackle the day with a big cup of coffee in her hand. Irma loves that dentistry helps transform patients’ lives.
“It is always rewarding to see patient’s leave with dramatic improvements in their oral health. Not only does dentistry provide physical changes in a persons’ appearance, but we are also able to help them mentally. It helps with self-confidence and that is really amazing!”
Outside of work, Irma enjoys spending time with her husband, three kids and cute Frenchie. She also loves to dance while she is cooking and cleaning the house. Making people happy is Irma’s specialty!

In her free time, Karishma enjoys spending time in the gym, traveling, trying new foods and hanging out with her fiancé and labradoodle named Kane! She also loves watching college basketball (Rock Chalk, Jayhawk!) and considers herself a coffee/chocolate addict!
