Jeannette Hardy

Office Manager

Jeannette is all things office manager and insurance wiz! She is truly the jack of all trades when it comes to understanding the dental business. Jeannette first began in dental assisting school with Dr. Nussbaum but soon realized her great business savvy and was trained by the great Kathy Green to become the office manager of our practice over 7 years ago. Jeannette and her hubby Keith Hardy own a fitness studio in downtown Austin and when she’s not managing our practice, she’s either running the trails or helping Keith over at Sculpt Physique. They also have an adorable addition to her family, their cat, “lil mamas”.

Danielle Cartright


Danielle will always put a smile on your face. She has over 25 years of experience as a hygienist and has found her dental home with us at 360 Dental Care. Danielle joined us in 2018 and she was an immediate fit with her witty sense of humor and gentle touch. Our patients love how thorough she is, paying attention to detail and making sure to educate patients on how to improve their oral health is truly where Danielle shines. Outside of work she loves hanging with her son Quinn, her pup Prince Charming, and her cat Murphy. She is currently accepting applications for her real life “Prince Charming”……….

Robin Sampson


Robin was Dr. Nussbaum’s dental assistant for over 15 years and recently stepped back to allow more time with her beautiful girls Savannah and Bella. Robin also can’t get enough of the dental fam and she fills in from time to time for Valerie. We miss her infectious laughter and bubbly personality but we know she’s right where she needs to be!

Valerie Driggers


Another Austin native Valerie, moved to Louisiana to play college softball but, she made her way back to Austin as quickly as possible. Valerie loves the outdoors and spending time on the trails with her two fur babies Chloee and Ceanna. With over 13 years experience as a dental assistant, Valerie’s gentle nature and calming presence will put you at ease the moment she calls your name. Valerie loves seeing the outcome of helping patients get out of pain and admiring the artwork of Dr. Nussbaum! You are always in great hands with Valerie.

Nova Thomison

Patient Outreach

Nova is also born and raised in Austin and cannot get enough of the Nussbaum dental fam! She worked in the front office while pursuing her second bachelor degree in nursing. After about a year she realized that she needed to step back and focus on school but she’s found a way to stay on the team doing marketing and filling in for Dani when help is needed. Nova loves to find ways to promote health and starting with oral health is a great way to do it! Outside of work Nova is usually studying, in clinicals, or finding some time to recoup outdoors!
