Sabrina

Office Manager

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, a daughter-in-law, and a beautiful granddaughter. We love traveling and spending time with family.

 

 

Jose

Registered Dental Assistant

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.

 

 

Amy 

Registered Dental Assistant

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.

Being with my family and friends is my priority when I’m not working. I have two amazing sons and I love spending time with them. Some of my hobbies are taking pictures, making quilts, crocheting, and scrapbooking. I really enjoy taking family trips to the lake, beach, Disneyland, etc.

 

 

Julia

Registered Dental Assistant

While I am at work I assist Dr. Velez, take intra-oral pictures and x-rays, take impressions, clean and stock the office. I love helping our patients receive the best possible smile. Knowing that they leave happy makes me very happy.

On my days off I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend and going to Disneyland.

 

Cristal

Front Office Receptionist

I love being the first to say hi to all our patients and their families. When I see all their smiling faces walk through the door it lights up my day. I answer phones, schedule appointments, and help everyone in any way that I can.

When I am not at work I love spending time with my Chihuahua, Mona. I enjoy going out to movies and dinner with my boyfriend, friends, and family.

 

 

Jharlin

Dental Assistant

My favorite part of this job is meeting new people and really getting to know them while they are in treatment. Seeing their beginning and final results is very exciting and makes my job very satisfying. There are multiple tasks that I take care of during the day. I insure our office is clean, I take intra-oral pictures, x-rays, I take impressions, and I assist Dr. Velez with all of our amazing patients.

When I am not at work I love spending time with my boyfriend and going to the movie theatre. One of my favorite theme parks is Universal studies and they have the best churros!

 

 

Ben

Registered Dental Assistant

I started off as a patient of Dr. Velez’s and I knew once I started going to school to become a dental assistant that I wanted to work for her one day. When I started working here I wanted to make sure that all of our patients left with a smile just like I did after each of my adjustments. My day consists of cleaning, taking x-rays, taking impressions, and I also assist Dr. Velez. I love what I do!

The days that I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my family, relaxing, and playing video games.
