  1. Talena Meilinger Portrait

    Talena Meilinger, DDS

    General Dentist

    Dr. Meilinger graduated with a BS in Biology at UT Dallas and continued her education at the UT Health Science Center in San Antonio to receive her DDS. She became a dentist because as a kid, she once chipped her tooth and her dentist was terrific and immediately eliminated her pain and restored her esthetics in just one visit. This experience changed how she viewed the dentist, and she hopes to be able to provide that same impact when she sees her patients! Dr. Meilinger loves the art of dentistry – her favorite part is the ability to change someone’s smile and how they view themselves in just a few visits. She enjoys educating her patients and changing their perception of oral health and dental visits overall.

    Outside of office hours, you’ll find Dr. Meilinger enjoys tennis, golf, traveling and spending time with her family and friends. She lives her life by the golden rule, “treat others as you would wish to be treated.

    Orthodontist

    Dr. Dip Desai graduated from Birmingham University where he then transferred to New York University to complete dental school. Dr. Desai’s love for dentistry stemmed from the desire to help people by changing their smiles because that is the first thing others notice. The relationships that he builds with patients over the course of their orthodontic treatment is very important to him.

    In Dr. Desai’s spare time, his hobbies are exercising, swimming, biking and cooking. His main goal is to spend time with his family and their dog, Hazel.
