We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
I love to work with people and this job really makes that happen. My experience in banking helps me with the financial aspect of my work, but what I really love is getting to know our patients! Their smiles are really something to see! Our team is great; we work together well to get to the final goal of whatever we are working on. Everyone tries to help each other, which is what makes this place a wonderful office to work!
When I am not working, I enjoy bicycle riding with my husband, Gary. Spending time in the outdoors is always refreshing, especially when I’m in the garden. I also love to bake and cook—my pies are to die for! I always enjoy spending time with my dog Rosie and Cat Minou and of course all my wonderful friends.
When you come into the office and notice all the sparkling clean instruments and equipment that was my handiwork! Along with the general housekeeping, I also assist Dr. King and attend to anything our patients may need. My favorite part about what I do is working with children and seeing treatment results. There’s nothing better than seeing them smile when their braces come off! Our team is one of a kind and I love working with everyone here.
When I’m not working, I spend my time raising my two beautiful daughters with my husband. My oldest is working and in college, and I couldn't be more proud. My youngest keeps us in the gym all weekend watching her play basketball!
Certified Orthodontic Assistant-COA
I make sure each appointment goes smoothly by assisting the doctor with patient care. I also work in the lab and coordinate our marketing efforts. I’m passionate about orthodontics and what I do, and I feel like I learn something new every day. I love seeing patients go from the start to finish during their treatment, and I especially love to see their faces and smiles when they get their braces off!
At home, my husband and I take pride in our three very active sons. We’re big Chicago Bears fans!
I really love working in the lab and overseeing all appliance fabrication. I love being hands-on in making appliances, especially making a Hawley or clear retainers with a pontic that fills the space where a tooth has been missing. I love to see our patients’ new smiles! Orthodontics can change a patient’s attitude and life forever so I’m happy to be a part of making that happen. Seeing someone who never used to smile leave the office beaming is what makes it all worth it.
I am married with two grown children and three grandchildren. To stay active, I hike in the Sandias almost every day and do yoga twice a week.
I am a bilingual dental care professional who earned my certificate in dental assisting /radiography in 2005. My experience in direct patient care and knowledge treatments enable me to help patients with their scheduling needs. I thoroughly enjoy my daily interaction with patients.
I’m a mother of two, so my free time consists of spending time with my family. We love being outdoors trying new recipes, as well as going to the movies.
I assist Dr. King with all aspects of our patients’ orthodontic treatment, including changing wires, fitting appliances, taking impressions, and providing oral hygiene instruction. While I recently joined this office, I have more than 20 years of experience in orthodontic assisting. Seeing beautiful smiles is the best part of my job! Orthodontic treatment can be a life changing experience for some! Building meaningful, personal relationships with patients means a lot to me.
The joys of my life are my four amazing sons. Although three of them are all grown, I still enjoy our Sunday dinners together. My youngest son DeLano is 14 years old and has me busy with baseball, football, and basketball! When I have time, I enjoy my dance fit class and riding on the back of my Harley Davidson.
