Meet the staff

My name is Joanne Carlin and was born and raised in Houston, TX.  I’ve been working in the dental field now for over two years in the front office. I have a bachelor Fine Arts degree in Interior Design and found I have a love for dental and design. I have a cute little yorkie who is now four years old which I adore! In my spare time I love to craft, bake, read, hang out with my family and friends, watch football (Go Texans!), and learn to dance ballroom.


In the office I am considered the Office Coordinator and you can come to me with any questions you have about your insurance or finances.  I love working at Wonderland Pediatric Dentistry and consider this my second family!




Hey guys! My name is Traci. I am a Registered Dental Assistant. I graduated from my Dental Assisting program in 2012. I went straight into Pediatric Dentistry and absolutely LOVE it. I recently became certified in Coronal Polishing and Pits and Fissure Sealants. I am a mother of a very active little boy who’s always keeping me on my toes. On my spare time when we’re not playing cars or being super heroes, I enjoy watching football and cheering on the Texans! I look forward to creating a dental family here at Wonderland with the Cypress Community.





I’m Chomps and I am the Mascot here at Wonderland Pediatric Dentistry! I was nameless for a few months until finally I got my name from our patients! Lucky for me I get to go on lots of field trips with the team. My favorite is when we go to the schools and teach the children about good oral hygiene. (I like it when the team uses me to demonstrate how to brush properly), I also like going to the community events to see all of you. Be sure to follow our Facebook page to keep up with my special segment called “CHOMPS NEWS”. It’s where I post a few fun and interesting facts about the office.





Hello! My name is Cara Higginbotham and I am a Registered Dental Assistant. I moved to Houston from a small town called Winnie. I have been working in Pediatric Dentistry for almost four years. I never thought I would be in the dental field but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I love working with kids and teaching them that the dentist is a lot of fun. I have a cute chiweenie that just turned a year old. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I am so glad to be part of the Wonderland family and meeting lots of new people.






Hi my name is Nikki and I’m Wonderland’s Front Office! I have worked in an office environment for many years, but I am new to the dental field and I’m excited to learn all about it. I’m a Texas native and have an Associates of Science degree. I enjoy reading lots of books, singing and taking my daughter to the park. I also enjoy arts and crafts as well as playing music, and traveling.
I love working at Wonderland because we have awesome patients and most of all an awesome team.
