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 and Jacob.
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 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
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.
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.
