Meet the Team

  JoAnn JL Wright

  Office Manager


I love to work with people and this job really makes that happen. My past experience in Banking helps me to do my in the "number" and "people" areas. This is a great team to work with, they all know their jobs very well and are eager to help each other. That 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. I love to bake and cook. Always enjoy spending time with my dog Rosie and Cat Minou and of course all my wonderful friends......

Stephanie Gonzales

Orthodontic Assistant

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. Our team is one of a kind and I love working with everyone here.

When I’m not working I spend my time watching my older daughter dance and my younger daughter play basketball. I have two small dogs and also enjoy scrapbooking.

Pam Russel

Lab Manager

I really love working in the lab and oversee all appliance fabrication. I make various kinds of appliances like lower bonded, clear, and Hawley retainers as well as any other special appliance the doctor needs. 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.

My time at home is spent with my husband John and our cat. We have two grown children, three beautiful grandchildren. I’m into Ashtanga yoga and go twice a week. I’ve also enjoyed taking voice lessons for over ten years.

Hayley Smith

Treatment Coordinator

I help new patients to find the best treatment option for them and make sure they have an enjoyable experience along the way. I also help Dr. King track patient progress through the course of their treatment. I treat everyone that comes through our doors the way I’d like to be treated, and love building new relationships with patients and their families to help them achieve the smile they want.

I enjoy spending time at home with my husband Jared and my family. I also have a spoiled Siberian Husky named Skyler. You may not know that I was named after Hayley’s comet, but it won’t pass by Earth again until I’m 90 years old!



Mayra Romero 

Schedule Coordinator 

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. 


Angelica Torres

Orthodontic Assistant

I've been in Dental since 2014, two years in Ortho and two in General Dentistry, I am also certified in radiology. My favorite part of my job is seeing our patients leave with a smile on their faces knowing that they're one visit closer to achieving their dream smile!! 

When I am not in the office I love to spend my time with my 3 year old Daughter, Alana Monae, and our dog Chloe! We enjoy going to the park, watching my younger brothers play sports, as well as being home reading and learning fun new things!
