Biography

Dr. Garrett attended the University of Texas Dental School in Houston a few years after Dr. Lazar attended the same school. She also attended residency at the University of Texas at Houston. This is a wonderful residency program, in the “largest medical center in the world.” While in residency, through Herman Hospital, and UT’s special needs clinic, she had a wide exposure to just about every “special medical” need a child could have. Dr. Garrett worked with craniofacial patients from infancy through adolescence. In addition to her training with special needs children, and very apprehensive children (which are often the children who end up with pediatric dentists), she has a huge heart for the community. Dr. Garrett has volunteered in many varied community events, such as “Give Kids a Smile Day” and the Special Olympics.
