Meet Our Team

Avery, Dental Assistant

Bio coming soon.

Betsy, Advertising Coordinator

I'm Betsy, your go-to Event Coordinator at The Kid’s Place. With a passion for creating memorable experiences, I bring a touch of creativity and meticulous planning to ensure that every event at/for our dental office is not only successful but leaves a lasting impression. Our dental office is not just a place for appointments; it's a hub for community connection. Through collaborations with local organizations and participation in community fairs, we foster relationships that extend beyond the dental chair. Building a strong community presence is at the heart of what we do.

When I’m not connecting with Boerne’s Parks & Rec or the Greater Chamber of Boerne - gearing up for an event - you can find me creating graphics/reels for our social media presence. I find joy in crafting eye-catching Instagram reels and engaging Facebook posts for both existing and potential patients. We love incorporating the whole family with our in-office contests, teaser announcements, and local event flyers! When you see me sitting in Dr. Wilkerson’s office on Mondays, working on our next project, feel free to say hi or give me a wave! I love seeing all your bright smiles!

Outside of the office, you will most likely find me with children in tow – some being my own and others being my students. Other than Mondays, when I get to be amongst our young patients, I’m a Pre-K 2 teacher and a fulltime mom. I’m a dedicated teacher at St. Helena’s Episcopal School, with a passion for nurturing young minds and fostering love for learning in the early years. There, every day is an adventure!

However, my biggest joy comes from being a mom of three. Over the last 16 years, I've discovered my own set of supermom powers. Patience and a good sense of humor are my secret weapons. Our home is filled with laughter, love, and a touch of organized chaos. We believe in creating memories that last a lifetime – from weekend adventures to cozy movie nights. To us, it's all about building a treasure trove of shared experiences.
