Meet our Staff

Dr. Suzan Furney

Hello! I'm Dr. Suzan Furney and I have been practicing in New Braunfels since 1981. My husband Steve and I are the proud parents of three children; Tyler, Daniel and Sarah, daughter-in-laws Lisa and Emily, and son-in-law Daniel, granddaughters, Reagan, Hannah, Maybrie, and Brooke and grandsons Ryan, Jacob and Major.

After graduating from Texas A&M with a chemistry/biology degree I entered dental school at the University of Texas Dental School in Houston. We then moved to Tennessee where I practiced while my husband finished school before making New Braunfels our home. We have been a member of the First United Methodist Church for years and currently worship at Gruene United Methodist Church.

I am a "Fellow" in the Academy of General Dentistry, a member of the Texas Dental Association, the American Dental Association and the Tri-City Dental Society. I enjoy all aspects of dentistry taking advanced training in cosmetic, interceptive orthodontics and implants/occlusion. I am Clear Aligner Therapy certified and thoroughly enjoy helping people improve and take pride in their smiles. I continually take advanced course work as I work toward a mastership in dentistry. Our goal is to make you feel comfortable and relaxed in our office and to make Today's Smile a place that you can trust.

Hi. I'm Dr. Sarah McCutchen and I am honored to be on the team at Today's Smile. As a life long resident of New Braunfels, I am thrilled to be practicing dentistry in my hometown. My husband Daniel, our daughter Maybrie, son Major and I have made the hill country our home.

Some of you might know me as Dr. Furney's daughter. As did she, I graduated from Texas A&M University with a biology degree. I then attended the University of Texas Health Science Center Dental School in San Antonio. I graduated with the General Dentistry Top Clinician Award, the Vernetti Award for restorative dentistry, the San Antonio District Dental Society Award and was chosen by the American Academy of Implant Dentistry as their top student in academics and clinical.

I am eager to use my skills to provide you the best and newest dental care possible. I will listen to your concerns, and together we will give you the smile you desire.

Dr. Verona


Hello, I'm Dr. Nataliya Verona. My husband Erik and I live here in New Braunfels with our two young sons Vittorio and Matteo. I am very excited to join the Today's Smile Team. I enjoy working in private practice as well as teaching at The University of Texas Dental School as a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Comprehensive Dentistry.

After attending The University of Texas at San Antonio, I then graduated from the Dental School receiving honors in research, the Award for Excellence in Clinical Dentistry, and The Pierre Fauchard Academy Award for Outstanding Academic Achievements in Dentistry. My passion for providing the best patient care drives me to take multiple continuing education courses to stay up to date with the latest research and constantly improve my knowledge and skills. I also graduated from the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences with a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Cellular and Structural Biology after successfully defending my dissertation in the area of dental research. I am very excited to bring to the practice the cutting edge technology and procedures I teach in the dental school. I look forward to educating patients on their dental health and treating the body as a whole.
