Cox Bond Dental | Temple TX
Amber Ryan – Patient Navigator
As the patient navigator for Cox Bond Dental, I enjoy scheduling new patients and watching patients’ journey to smiles that are truly breathtaking. I still find it amazing to watch new smiles change lives! I am committed to making our patients and their families experience in our office a positive one! As a long time patient, I have benefited from a long association with Cox Bond Dental. I also have the opportunity to serve our patients as a dental assistant. My goal is to incorporate the wealth of knowledge and customer service that I have acquired to equip our team to best serve our patients and their families.
My incredible husband, Ty, and I have two precious boys— Tucker and Witten. We enjoy raising our young family in the country, sports and home projects.
Carla Anderson – Dental Assistant
Having been in the Cox/Bond Dental family for 23 years, I have had the opportunity to help many people get the healthy and beautiful smile that they want and of which they can be proud.
Things that are of great value in my life are my three beautiful children, my amazing husband, two grandchildren, my church and church family.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family, friends and staying involved with my church. I love to decorate and host friends and family in my home.
I look forward to seeing familiar faces come through our doors and building new relationships with our new patients.
Cherrie Bell – Dental Assistant
With thirteen and a half years of experience, I continue to greatly value my patients, and provide to them /the highest level of quality care deserved. My greatest passions are God, my family, church family, and to love and care for others, so providing warmth, compassion and encouragement is second nature to me. God remains number one in my life, and I strive to do His will every single day. In my free time, I love spending time with my family, friends, and my sweet four-legged boy Harry Winston. I’m always looking forward to meeting new people and making a positive impact on their lives.
Lisa Gillmeister – Financial Coordinator
I am the newest member to the Cox Bond dental family. My husband and I have been patients for over thirty years. I have worked in the dental field since 1982 and enjoyed helping families with their dental questions and needs. I could not imagine working in any other profession. My husband, David and I will celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary in December 2021. We have two children, Jamie, her husband Michael and their three kids-Claire, Evan and Patrick and Craig and his wife, Tabatha. Our favorite thing is spending as much time as we can with all of them. When I am not working, I love to cook, pull our camper to camp with friends and family and be on a beach. David and I are members at First United Methodist Church in Temple.

Julie Splittgerber – Registered Dental Hygienist
I’m Julie, a dental hygienist fueled by a love for my patients and the desire to see them have the best dental care in effort to achieve a higher level of overall health. I have worked in a variety of settings since graduating the Temple College Dental Hygiene Program in 2000 and joined the Cox Bond team in 2009. The last ten years here have been the best and most rewarding part of my career. We spend many hours attending classes so that we are current on the latest technology and treatment options. My hope is that you will feel welcome and confident that you are getting the best care possible!
When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time at home with my husband and three girls. My oldest daughter attends Temple College and is pursuing a career in nursing. My younger daughters are proud Belton Tigers and have a variety of musical interests. When we are not busy with band activities, I enjoy crafting, working in the yard, and getting lost in a good book!
Kim Jeffreys – Registered Dental Hygienist
I have been a part of the family at Cox Bond since 2002, minus a few years I got to be home with my three incredible boys Caleb, Colt, and Pax. My husband, Dave, and I have been married since 2000 after we met at the University of Mary Hardin Baylor. We are very active in our church and time with our family and friends is one of our favorite things. Much of our time is spent on baseball and football fields cheering on our boys. One of the best parts of my job here is the opportunity I get to build long lasting relationships with my patients and co-workers. It’s such a pleasure to help patients feel at ease and welcome here in our office. I look forward to helping patients have healthy, confident smiles for a lifetime.
Laura Shadrick – Registered Dental Hygienist
I have been a dental hygienist at Cox Bond Dental since 1997 and have developed a strong and lasting relationship with many of our patients. My passion for quality patient care exemplifies what the Cox Bond Dental team is all about. I am dedicated to our patients and will continue to educate them on good oral hygiene, so they can achieve optimal oral health.
I was born and raised in Bell County and attended the Temple College Dental Hygiene Program. After receiving my Associates in Dental Hygiene degree, I was given the opportunity to join this dental family over 20 years ago.
My husband, Joe, and I have a blended family of 5 children and 3 beautiful grandchildren, Tatum, Collins and Wyatt. We spend a great amount of time with family and friends. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, home projects and working in the yard.
