I love orthodontics! My inspiration is seeing a patient's progress from start to finish and witnessing the confidence and happiness that orthodontics gives our patients. I enjoy getting to know our wonderful patients and their families. We become friends, and it’s a pleasure to watch them grow and become more confident during treatment. Seeing their beautiful smiles, and how happy they are when we take off the braces, is the best! I assist Dr. Velez as she cares for our patients. I also take X-rays, perform intraoral photography, and take impressions. I help at the front desk, too, and love seeing happy smiles as patients arrive for their visits.
I was married in 2011, and have a son and a baby on the way; as well as a dog named Misty. Being with my family and friends is my priority when I’m not working. I love making quilts and scrapbooking.

I like the friendships that grow between the patients, their families, and me. I look forward to their visits as a time to see how their smile is progressing and hear the latest news. Witnessing the changes in a person’s self-esteem and watching their confidence grow never gets old. I love seeing the final, beautiful smiles, and the patient’s excitement. I order our supplies, take X-rays, and assist Dr. Velez as she cares for our patients.
I’m married, with three beautiful daughters. Our family also has two Shih Tzus, Benny and Lily. I love spending time with my family and watching basketball games.
I love seeing our patients smile at the end of treatment, with their healthy, straight, beautiful teeth. They’ve worked hard to gain those amazing smiles, and I am so happy for them.
I am the treatment coordinator and office manager. I review the treatment plans with patients and their family, and help provide flexible and affordable payment plans. What I love most about Apple Valley Orthodontics is our welcoming and helpful office culture.
My husband and I have been married for more than 30 years. We have two sons, two daughters, a son-in-law, and a beautiful granddaughter. We love traveling and spending time with family.
I am the friendly front desk receptionist that will greet you with a smile every appointment. I handle all telephone calls and appointment scheduling. I love seeing how all the patients transform their smiles over the course of their treatment. I am currently a patient too!
I love my family and friends and they are very important to me. I have 3 younger brothers and one older sister, one niece and 2 nephews that I adore so much.
Drawing, painting, and listening to music are my biggest hobbies when I'm not working. You may have seen some of my artwork on our Apple Valley Orthodontics Facebook page.
