Diane is the first of our exceptional Dental Assistants. She has worked side-by-side with Dr. Metzger since 1998, always demonstrating her calm, caring, and genuine personality. Diane has enjoyed spending over 20 years in an office environment that feels like her second family, laughing together with her fellow staff members, and helping patients feel at home.
With almost 25 years of dental experience, Diane’s greatest strengths are working in a gentle and efficient manner, and building long-term patient relationships. She loves her relationships with our patients, and she has enjoyed seeing many of them grow up through the years. Many of Diane’s long-time patients have started their own families and now bring them to Dr. Metzger for their dental care.
Diane and her husband, Manuel, have been married for 20 years. They have five children: Manuel III, Jesse, Isaac, Arianna, and Abigail. Diane and her family are members of Gateway Church. Some of their favorite family times are movie night, game night, and cookouts. Additionally, they are very loyal Dallas Cowboys fans, and they thoroughly enjoy football season with the entire family. Diane’s family also enjoys traveling. One of their favorite vacations was a trip to Las Vegas, where Diane and Manuel got remarried by Elvis!
Diane has lived in the DFW area since 1995. Her early years were spent in her birth place, Wichita Falls, and she graduated from Wichita Falls High School.
