Hygiene Professional Team
Lesley, BS, RDH
Lesley is a native Texan from Corsicana. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology with a minor in Business from UT, Austin. She went on to receive her hygiene training at Austin Community College. She loves the small-town feel of Austin where she enjoys Barton Springs, the Green Belt, Zilker Park, Town Lake (okay – Lady Bird Lake!) and all of the great restaurants. Besides being outdoors, Lesley enjoys living with her new husband and working out (she was a former personal trainer). Lesley is meticulous but gentle, a rare quality.
"I gain great satisfaction by sharing my knowledge with patients. My satisfaction comes from working with patients to achieve oral health, and I love coming to work with great doctors and exceptional team members."
Shaunda, AAS, RDH
Shaunda was born in Anchorage, Alaska where she lived for 3 years before spending the next 14 years moving around with her family and the Air force, including Belgium and New Mexico. Afterwards, she grew up mostly in San Antonio, and followed in her father’s footsteps joining the Air Force after high school. As a Senior Airman stationed at the Lackland Air Force base in San Antonio, she entered the world of periodontics, where she assisted surgeons, and helped teach the residents. She joined Dr. Yu and Associates several years ago as a RDA, assisting Dr. Yu in surgery and chairside. Because of her natural aptitude and love of dentistry, Dr. Yu encouraged Shaunda to attend hygiene school to apply her years of experience, knowledge, and passion of periodontics to the hygiene profession. No surprise that Shaunda graduated at the top of her class! Our patients, doctors, and team are truly delighted to have Shaunda back at Dr. Yu and Associates!
“I love working at a practice that implements the core values I learned in the military: Integrity first, service before self and excellence in all we do.”
