Hygiene Professional Team


Lesley, BS, RDH


Clinical/Surgical Lead
meet the team Austin dental team LesleyLesley is a proud, native Texan. She grew up in Corsicana and after high school, moved to Austin where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and minor in Business from the University of Texas. Working as a personal trainer was an exciting challenge for Lesley, but dental hygiene is where she found her true calling...

Upon completing hygiene courses at Austin Community College, she applied for a hygienist role with Austin’s best periodontist. Since then, she’s worked for none other than Dr. Yu and Associates. Lesley is meticulous, careful, and professional—not to mention, passionate—when it comes to her career in dental health.

In addition to her career, Lesley loves travelling, spending time with family and friends, and spoiling her three cats—Beasley, Mela, and Sam—whom she and her husband have rescued over the years.

Diversity, opportunity, and small-town charm drew Lesley to Austin. Her career—managing our hygiene team and promoting better dental health in Westlake—is why she still considers Austin her home (though she’s not particularly fond of the traffic).

"I love sharing my knowledge with patients! Teaching them how to improve their oral hygiene can help them lead happier, healthier lives. That’s why I come to work every day.”

Shaunda, AAS, RDH


picture of ShaundaShaunda 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 Registered Dental Assistant, assisting Dr. Yu in surgery and chairside. Because of Shaunda’s natural aptitude and love of dentistry, Dr. Yu encouraged her 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 working as a Registered Dental Hygienitst.

“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.”
