Meet Your Gentle Tulsa Dental Team
At Southard Dental, we have a diverse team of experienced dental professionals who are dedicated to providing our patients with gentle dental care at prices they can afford.
Our goal is to help our patients achieve beautiful, healthy smiles with preventative, restorative and cosmetic dentistry in a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere.
Dr. Southard’s private practice focuses widely on treating patients who have not been to the dentist in years and want their smile back. Our caring staff works closely with each patient, listening to what their goals are for a healthier mouth and smile.
We fix people’s teeth who feel like their mouths are hopeless, giving them a complete smile makeover to enter into the world with and achieve their goals feeling proud and not self-conscious about the appearance of their teeth.
Our single doctor practice allows us to give each patient the personalized attention that they would not receive at a larger dental clinic.
You will receive a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Southard to sit down and discuss your problems. It is a privilege for us to share more information about our caring staff and their dedication to your dental health.
Dr. Wrany Southard
Dr. Southard received the honor of National Merit Scholar and went to undergrad on a full scholarship. He attended OU and UCO and worked towards his bachelors in chemistry and physiology. He graduated dental school in 1999 and has been in private practice ever since.
He served as chairman of the Professional Education Committee for Tulsa County Dental Association and received the 2013 Presidents Award of Appreciation from that service. He has attended various implantology, laser and cosmetic dentistry services all over the continent.
I am always happy to answer your questions, provide you with personal assistance in the coordination of your treatment and financial arrangements, and make your visit nothing but positive!
Dr. Southard is a fantastic doctor to work with, as he is highly skilled and very compassionate about his patients. I love going to work every day knowing that my highly experienced and energetic team shares my primary goal, which is to help you!
My husband Dennis and I have three children and a dog. They keep us very busy with the many sports and activities they are involved in! We love spending time with them and teaching them about life through hands on experiences. We spend a lot of time outdoors being active and enjoying time with other family and friends.
Front Desk Administrator
I am the first smiling face you will see when you enter our office! I have been with the practice for over five years and have a deep passion for the patients for which we have an honor of providing treatment.
I conduct all front desk responsibilities including: answering phones, coordinating patients, scheduling appointments and ensuring that our very complex schedule works for everyone.
I strive for excellence in customer service and office skills. I constantly continue to upgrade my knowledge in dentistry by attending dental education courses throughout the year.
I love being part of a highly skilled team that shares the same passion for dentistry and patient care that I do! My husband (Kevin) and I have two dogs and we enjoy spending time with family and friends. My hobbies include running and traveling.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I have been a part of the Southard Dental Family for over 8 years. I graduated in 2006 with a degree in Dental Hygiene. I am licensed by the Oklahoma State Board of Dentistry to practice dental hygiene including: General Prophylaxis, Scaling and Root Planing, Periodontal Maintenance, Laser Therapy, Administration of Local Anesthesia, Administration of Nitrous Oxide, Application of fluoride and desensitizing agents, and Individual and Community Oral Health Education.
I am dedicated to making sure that each patient leaves this office pleased with the care they have received. It is my job to bring a higher level of education and understanding to my patients regarding their oral health, disease, services, and products. I love it when my patients leave with a better outlook about their oral care and feeling more confident about their smile! Developing personal relationships with my patients and improving their oral health and overall well-being is my passion!
When I’m not at the office you can find me spending time with my family and friends. Me and my husband Mark love spoiling our grandson Aden. When Aden isn’t around being the boss, Izzy, our Yorkie, steps up to do the job!
Registered Dental Assistant
Working in the dental field has been a part of my entire adult life. I have been a dental assistant since 1993 and have worked with Dr. Southard for over 8 years. I enjoy the process of helping to provide dental care and comfort to each patient. My favorite aspect of the dental field is helping each patient to be comfortable and at ease during their time at our office.
Working for Dr. Southard has been a wonderful learning experience about what dentistry is supposed to be. He is dedicated to his patients’ care and satisfaction. I have earned several certifications over the years including: Radiographs, Coronal Polishing, Nitrous Oxide, Invisalign Certificate- I & II, LVI Cosmetic Course and Noble BioCare Implant Course.
When I am not at the office I enjoy spending time with my husband Darrin and our children. We both take pride in being very active in our children’s’ lives and all of the many sports and activities they are involved in. I love spending time outdoors and have recently found a new passion in hunting.
My husband has been an avid hunter his whole life and now we have just one more thing that we can do while spending time together!
There are definitely offices out there where a visitor can come and go without ever seeing a smile. Southard Dental is definitely not one of those places! I enjoy getting to know our patients and always want them to feel at home. It really is a pleasure to hear our patients so enthusiastic about their visits!
In addition to greeting our fantastic patients in person and over the phone, I also verify and coordinate insurance benefits for our patients. Working with insurance companies can be a challenging task but I really enjoy doing what is in my control to make sure that we utilize each patient’s benefits to the fullest extent possible.
I have been a part of the team at Southard Dental for over 7 years. It’s a blessing to come to work each day and enjoy what you are doing and those you work with. The entire team here at Southard Dental is highly dedicated and motivated to give people a healthy mouth and the smile they deserve.
Away from the office, I share my life with my husband, Tom and our two sons. Both boys are excellent wrestlers and we can’t get enough of watching them continue to succeed, both on the mat and at life in general. Our oldest son Tanner is currently wrestling on a scholarship at Oklahoma City University. Talon, our youngest son, has had a very successful wrestling career since he first started competing. He won his first National Title when he was only 7 years old. When we aren’t involved with wrestling, I enjoy cooking for my men and spending time around our pool with family and friends.
