Kelli and her husband of 30 years have six children, one son-in-law, three daughters-in-law, and two beautiful grandkids! As a family, they enjoy playing board games, hiking, camping, and biking. Here’s an interesting fact about her: her kids lovingly call her “alien” because she only has 9 fingers.
Maria, Front Desk
Maria has well over a decade of experience in the world of dentistry, and all of those years have been right here with us! She grew up in McKinney and completed her studies at Texas Tech University. When asked about her favorite part of her job, she shared that it’s working with patients and seeing their amazing transformation and joy following their treatment.
With her husband of 34 years, Maria has two adult sons and one beautiful daughter-in-law. Some hobbies she enjoys include traveling, riding bikes, and learning Italian and American Sign Language. Here’s something you may not know about her: she worked on a recycling campaign to save the Battleship Texas.
Courtney, Orthodontic Patient Care Coordinator
For over two years now, Courtney has been an important member of our team. A Texas native, she graduated from Rockwall High School before attending Arkansas Tech University. For her, the best part of her job is hands down the people!
Courtney is a wife and a mother of three little girls. In her free time, she loves watching her kids play sports, reading, watching movies, and spending time with loved ones.
Mesa, Orthodontic Assistant
Mesa has an impressive 34+ years of experience, and more than two decades have been with our team! In addition to being a registered dental assistant, she has advanced training in CPR. For her, witnessing the transformation of a patient’s confidence over the course of their treatment is the best part of her job.
Mesa is married and the mother of an adult daughter, one puppy dog, and four cats. She loves using her time outside the orthodontic office to garden, travel, and visit all of the pro baseball parks/fields with her husband. Here’s a fun fact about her: she was terrified of the dentist as a child!
Sandy, Orthodontic Assistant
With an impressive 43 years of experience (and 28 years with us), Sandy is an important member of our team. All these years later, she continues to love helping patients achieve a beautiful, functional smile that improves their confidence and overall quality of life. After graduating high school, she pursued her studies at Grayson College in Denison, TX.
Sandy and her wonderful husband have two adult sons, one grandson, and two bonus grandbabies. In her free time, you’ll most likely find her spending time with loved ones, glamping, and trying new recipes. Here’s a fun fact about her: she’s spent her entire career in orthodontics, and she wouldn’t have it any other way!
