Staff Members



I joined Dr. Peterson’s staff in April of 2014 and am originally from New Orleans, LA. My husband, three boys and I moved to Texas in 2009 with 2 dogs and 2 cats. I am a Registered Dental Assistant/Sterile Tech and usually assist Dr. Peterson with follow up appointments and post-operative surgical care of patients. My favorite pastimes are reading and spending time with my family.


Appointment Coordinator

Crystal is a veteran of Uptown Endodontics; she has worked with Dr. Peterson since 2000. She has extensive surgical and endodontic clinical experience as well as administrative skills. Crystal will likely greet you upon visiting and assist you with paperwork or appointments. Being cross trained, Dr. Peterson calls on Crystal during surgical procedures to lend a hand and she enjoys this opportunity to be a part of patient’s surgical care as much as managing their administrative care! Crystal hales from Dallas and enjoys time with her boys and other family members keeping active outdoors with sports and recreation.


Dental Assistant

Kerri joined Dr. Peterson in 2007. She is an outstanding endodontic assistant with acute attention to detail and enjoys talking with the patients. Kerri’s favorite part about working for Dr. Peterson is when we save teeth using Surgical Endodontic procedures. Apico’s are Sooo Cool!! She has lived in Arlington for 16 years and is busy raising 4 children during her off time. Kerri’s home is a gathering spot for dear friends, family and fun. Go Cowboys!!


Dental Assistant

Mar has been with Dr. Peterson since 2008. She is fluent in Spanish and has extensive dental experience in both DFW and San Antonio. She makes it her goal to make each patient’s visit as pleasant as possible and is a true asset to Uptown Endodontics. Mar helps with the follow up phone calls and loves it when patient’s say, “I can’t even tell I had a root canal done”. Mar enjoys cooking, photography and arts & crafts. She especially enjoys spending time with her parrots, Sol & Luna, and her two recently adopted parrots, Cielo and Estrella.
