Scheduling Coordinator
Hi! My name is Claudia and I am the scheduling coordinator here at UPD. I am married and have an amazing daughter named Maddison! Between soccer and basketball, she keeps us very busy, but I would not trade it for the world! When I am not helping our patients, I love spending time with my friends and family. I also love being at the beach, shopping, trying new restaurants and enjoying a good Netflix marathon. If it were possible, I would spend all of my free time at the most magical place on earth: Disney!! Dr. Funny, Dr. Maynor and our UPD team are simply fantastic and your family can rest assured that you are truly in the best hands!

Dental Assistant II
Hi! My name is Kelly, and I have been part of the UPD clinical team for over 11 years now. My husband, son and I love to go boating with our two pups: Boomer and Sooner. If you don't find me on the lake, then I am usually on the tennis court. I have been playing tennis since I was in elementary school. I love what I do because I am surrounded by an AMAZING team and great patients. Kids will always keep me young.
