Meet Denton TX Dentist Office Staff

Denton, Texas dental teamHi, my name is Jacquie. In 2004 I graduated from the Youngstown State University Dental Hygiene program and then spent 10 years working mainly in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. In 2014, I got married & relocated to Texas for my husband’s career. I was blessed to join the Leatherwood team as a hygienist in January 2015. Dr. Leatherwood & all the staff here quickly became family to me. I enjoy working with them all so much, as well as getting to know all of our sweet patients.

We have since welcomed 2 adorable boys, Silas and Ezra. They have 2 older puppy sisters, Jersey & Marlowe. When not at work, I love to just be home enjoying my family, get outside (whenever it’s not too hot) & travel as much as possible!


Denton, Texas dental teamHello, I’m Leslie. I have lived in the DFW area for over 35 years. I am very thankful to have an incredible husband and two boys. I started working at Leatherwood Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in January 2014, and I absolutely love it! My favorite part of my job is spending my day with our work family and getting to know and love our amazing patients.

In my spare time, I love watching my boys play baseball, spending time with family and friends, and taking care of our puppy Astro.

I continue to strengthen my Faith and Love for the Lord and strive to be loving and kind to all as a reflection of Him.
