Born in Kansas, Dr. Marshall grew up in the Spring/Klein area of Houston in a family full of scientists and musicians. Her dad worked at NASA and her own proficiency on the piano and violin allowed her to perform at Carnegie Hall during her childhood. Raised with a deep love for science, medicine, and art, she was naturally drawn to a field that combined all three – dentistry.
“I want parents and kids to feel the same gentleness, warmth, and kindness I felt as a child when I visited my pediatric dentist. Those were great experiences and I want to create memories like that for the children we serve. I also think it’s really important for me to be a positive role model for children, teens, and the community.”
Dr. Marshall earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of North Carolina – Adams School of Dentistry. Following her general practice residency at Bronx Lebanon Hospital Center in New York, she went on to complete her pediatric dental residency at Temple University in Philadelphia. She is an Ambassador of The Breathe Institute – promoting proper airway health as well as providing pediatric solutions for tongue-ties and lip ties. She also holds Standard Proficiency Certification from The Academy of Laser Dentistry.
As a board-certified pediatric dentist practicing for over 10 years, Dr. Marshall is passionate about relationship-building and finds great joy in getting to know the children, parents, and families of those she serves. She has intentionally designed a kid-focused environment and a calm, gentle, and kind dental experience that will create great memories for patients and parents alike.
Beyond serving patients, she has a wide range of interests including salsa dancing, cooking classes, traveling, exploring ethnic foods, live music, museums and art galleries, people watching, volunteering in local and international communities, and hanging out with family and friends. From the NBA to the NFL and Formula 1 racing, she loves watching professional sports. Her favorite ballet is “The Nutcracker,” on Broadway she prefers “Hamilton” and “The Lion King,” and on the big screen, she enjoys kids' films like "Trolls" and anything by Pixar.
