Lindsay Brown
Office Manager

I’m from Southern AR, but have lived in NWA for the past 14 years.  I love its diverse culture and all that it has to offer. I love doing anything outdoors in nature. I spend as much time as I can with my family and friends too, I have the best of both worlds.  I have an interest for sustainability, so living in NWA gives me endless opportunities to follow my passions!

Rubby Hernandez
Dental Assistant

I was born in California but have lived in NWA for nine years now.  I love spending time with my family, as I have a little boy and girl who keep me very busy!  I’m a makeup junkie and purse addict so “shopping” is my middle name.  I’m the only bilingual person in the office so my mad speaking skills are very helpful.

Katie Howard

I was born and raised in Northwest Arkansas.  I’m the oldest of 7, have a wonderful husband and two beautiful little girls!  I love sports, chocolate and dentistry. I worked on the clinical staff at a pediatric office for almost 6 years before coming here.  I’m excited for this new adventure!

I’ve lived in NWA my whole life and spend a lot of time with my family and friends. I enjoy sports and the hiking and camping outdoors. I also enjoy painting and DIY-ing in my spare time. I live with my fiance Josh, and our beautiful German Shephard, Colt. We love travelling together and seeing the beautiful places this world has to offer!

I just recently moved to NWA a year ago and fell in love with the area. I obtained a Bachelor in Business Administration from John Brown University in May 2017. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and children, drinking coffee, traveling and hanging out with friends.


Kelsey Friend
Registered Dental Assistant

I’m originally from central Arkansas but lived in North Carolina for a few years which is where my interest in dentistry grew (shout-out to Dr. Borden for being such a role model). I’m married to Justin Timberlake’s doppelgänger and together we have a two year old son and a chocolate Labrador. We’ve been in Northwest Arkansas since 2014. I love helping others and also have passions for health and fitness, being outdoors, graphic design and, of course, being a mom. In addition to being a RDA, I’m also a member of a nonprofit canine rescue organization called Fighting For Fido. I’m so happy to be part of the BES team!
