About Waco Family Dentist
Dr. Wendy Winarick
Born and raised in Ennis, Texas, Dr. Winarick continued her family tradition and earned her Bachelor's Degree in biomedical science from Texas A&M University in 1997. While working at the medical school on campus, she discovered that dentistry combined two of her favorite things: “construction” and “medicine.”
After completing her studies at A&M, she earned a graduate degree from the University of Texas School of Dentistry-Houston in 2001. She purchased her practice right out of school and has been in Waco ever since.
Dr. Winarick loves serving adults and children in and around Waco. To provide the best care possible, she continues to learn new dental techniques and attends multiple continuing education courses each year. She believes that her practice is her second family and aims to make each dental visit as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.
Dr. Winarick is also involved in the:
- American Dental Association
- Central Texas Dental Society
- Academy of General Dentistry
- Academy of GP Orthodontics
“Outside” is the word that describes Dr. Winarick when she’s away from the office. She enjoys gardening, sports, camping, and sewing. She spends as much time as possible with her husband, Brian and their two children, Maggie and Philip.
Brian Winarick has nine years of experience as an office manager. He previously studied at Texas A&M University and completed the Executive MBA Program at SMU. Working in our front office has given him an opportunity to develop wonderful, lasting relationships with our patients, and he works hard to make sure that everyone who comes to see us has a great experience.
When he’s not helping us create a great practice, he enjoys basketball, poker, traveling, and being outdoors. He’s also a board member for the Texas Sports Hall of Fame and is married to Dr. Winarick.
Andrea came to Waco in 2005 to continue her education at TSTC. She completed her dental assisting degree in 2007, and then spent the next few years working in Stephenville. She moved back to Waco in 2010 and joined our team soon thereafter. She enjoys being part of a friendly, easygoing team that’s always eager to help others and to learn.
When she’s not helping us provide Waco-area patients with exceptional service, she enjoys biking and hiking. She also enjoys spending time with her nieces and nephews.
