Jose, R.D.A.

Office Manager and Treatment Coordinator

 

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. I love spending time with my family and my animals. I love watching basketball games and traveling.

 

 

Amy 

Clincial Supervisor and 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.

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

Financial Administrator

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.

 

 

 

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.

I love working in orthodontics!  My favorite part of the job is communicating with all of our wonderful patients and seeing their happy smiles each visit.  I love seeing the excitement of new patients when they first get their braces put on.  

On my days off I love spending time with my bofriend, my family and my dogs Dixie and Roxie.
