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.




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

Hello! I originally started off as a patient of Dr. Velez, so this helps me understand our patients.  I am able to help our patients with their orthodontic needs, and I  know that our patients are seeing one of the best orthodontists. Seeing the progress of a patient’s smile is amazing, and knowing I had a part to do with it is an honor. Also, being able to bond with our amazing patients just makes my days much more enjoyable. Thanks to all this, I can genuinely say I love what I do!
On my days off I enjoy spending time with my family, play video games, watch TV, and listen to a lot of music.
