I work in the clinic, assisting Dr. Judd with various procedures as he creates beautiful, lasting smiles. I love building real friendships with our patients. It’s a lot of fun to hear what’s been happening since their last visit! My favorite moment is when we finish treatment and our patient sees their new smile for the first time. They can’t stop looking at their before and after photos and grinning!
Outside of work, I love time with my family and my two dogs, going to Disneyland and the beach, and spending time with my church family. I also like going to the movies and reading.
I assist Dr. Judd with different procedures, including placing and removing braces. I also perform digital scans and am a lab tech. Our patients are some of the best people in the world. I really like getting to know each during treatment and seeing how they change as their appearance changes. A beautiful smile gives everyone a huge confidence boost and they’re so much happier!
I’m a proud father of two beautiful girls who are my world. When not at the office, I enjoy soccer and swimming, love trying new restaurants and exploring new places, and love music.
Working with Dr. Judd, I take impressions and X-rays, assist with placing braces, adjustments, and – my favorite – taking braces off. Those finished smiles, and the confidence that each patient shows at the end of treatment, make me happy! I love the uniqueness of each patient. We spend a lot of time chatting during treatment and it’s fun to learn about their lives and experiences. I am so happy to be part of creating beautiful smiles for my friends!
My time off is spent with my husband, Mark, and our two dogs. I enjoy traveling, reading, music, practicing yoga, and chocolate.
I enjoy introducing people to our office, guiding them through their first visit, and answering their questions. I assist with our new patient exams and then present treatment plans and financials. It’s important people understand all their options and are able to make informed decisions. I’m lucky because I get to meet our new patients at the beginning of their orthodontic treatment and follow their progress as they achieve their best smile.
When not working, I’m usually on the go with my spouse and four kids. We love to vacation to Rocky Point and San Diego and enjoy being outdoors, especially wakeboarding, snowboarding, and biking.
Front Office Receptionist
Working at the front desk, I greet and check in patients, update their records, and help them schedule visits. I also answer the phones and assist with new patient exams. I love seeing happy smiles as people arrive. Having orthodontic treatment is an exciting time in people’s lives and they are always eager to show us the progress they’re making! We have a positive, fun office and our patients respond to the environment.
I was born in Mexico, raised in Arizona, and am the oldest of five children. I love spicy food and enjoy hiking, camping, and pretty much anything involving the outdoors.
I handle lab work, sterilize equipment and tools, and take X-rays, photos, and impressions. I also assist Dr. Judd chairside as he creates amazing smiles! I love how every day here is different. Our patients are unique, with their own needs and personalities, and each procedure is different, too. I’m always learning something new and enjoy what patients share about their lives and dreams.
My time off is spent with my spouse, three daughters, and son. Our family also includes Max, our dog, and three chickens. I love hiking, traveling, being with friends, and a good book – and the rare moments of peace and quiet when I get to enjoy reading!
I do many things here, from making retainers and taking impressions to preparing teeth for bonding. My favorite, though, is assisting with removing braces. Those beautiful smiles, and the genuine happiness on the person’s face, makes my day! I love seeing how patients’ self-esteem grows stronger as they see the changes in their smiles! Everyone becomes more confident, happier, and more outgoing during treatment and I play a part in those changes.
I come from a large family: I have two older sisters and a young brother. Plus, my parents adopted three kids a few years ago and now I have two new younger brothers and a younger sister. I also have six nieces who I love dearly and a wonderful boyfriend I met in high school.
Insurance and Front Desk Coordinator, Orthodontic Assistant
I oversee our front desk, ensuring we’re running smoothly so every patient has easy visits. I also handle insurance matters, including checking and filing claims. And, when needed, I assist Dr. Judd with patients when another pair of hands is required. I love getting to know and establishing real relationships with our patients. It’s incredible to see beautiful, confident smiles emerge from even the most self-conscious person, and how each finishes feeling better about themselves.
Outside of work, I do a lot of pet sitting and love every minute of it. I’m also an avid reader and really enjoy historical fiction. I also love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and movie popcorn.
