Dr. Theresa Lassetter was born and raised in Plano. She first experienced Waco when she attended Baylor University (Sic ‘Em!). She graduated cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in biology in 2011 and had also gained a husband! She met the love of her life, Cody, at the Waco Lowe’s Garden Center, where she held a part-time position between taking classes to help put herself through school.

Together, she and Cody traveled to Houston where Dr. Lassetter received her formal dental training as a Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center School of Dentistry. She graduated at the top of her class and was an inducted member of the dental honors fraternity, Omicron Kappa Upsilon, Mu Mu chapter. During those four years, they also welcomed two daughters into their family. Avery and Parker are little princesses, and both Dr. Lassetter and Cody are very blessed to have such a tight-knit support system of family and friends in the Waco area.

When not treating patients, Dr. Lassetter enjoys spending time with her little family. Since graduating from dental school, the Lassetter family welcomed their littlest (and final!) member to their family. Preston absolutely adores his two big sisters! Whether they are playing on their trampoline, playing at Hewitt Park, visiting the Downtown Waco Farmers Market, or learning the names of all the My Little Ponies (Cody can name more ponies than Dr. Lassetter can!), the Lassetter family is always having a good time. Dr. Lassetter is also fluent in conversational Mandarin and has been known to out-fish her whole fisherman family when camping out at Lake Waco.
