Katie

Patient Relations Coordinator/Registered Dental Assistant

I have been a part of  Dr. Smith’s team since 2012 and enjoy seeing the beautiful smiles he creates for our patients. My responsibilities include assessing and ensuring patient satisfaction, maintaining a fun, high-quality atmosphere, making sure the office runs efficiently, developing contests, and scheduling. I previously assisted Dr. Smith chair side for 8 years before my current position, so I know the ends and outs of orthodontic treatment. I love learning new skills every day, and seeing the self-confidence a beautiful smile brings to our patients. Dr. Smith is funny and down to earth. He encourages you to reach your potential and is a great instructor. 

My husband and I live in Leander with our two beautiful little girls. Rylee and Natalee keep us extremely busy since they are both under 2!

Martha

Financial Coordinator

I handle all the financial aspects of a patient’s profile, including patient and insurance contracts, processing patient and insurance payments, assisting with financial and insurance questions, and working with insurance companies. I also assist with phone calls, scheduling, and general office duties. Each day I come into work, I get to see such beautiful smiles and happy people. It’s one of my favorite things about working here! I truly respect Dr. Smith’s knowledge and the compassion he has for his patients. He is always available to his patients whenever they need him.

I am happily married and we have a lovely daughter. My favorite pastime is spending time with my family.

Treatment Coordinator

It is my job to sign new patients on for orthodontic treatment. Mostly, I make sure they know how awesome Dr. Smith is and about the technology he offers, his experience, and how the orthodontic process works. I show new patients around the office, sit in on their exams, and go over their financial options. I also help with front-office duties like answering the phone, scheduling appointments, and taking payments. I started with Dr. Smith in June 2008 and I really love working here. Our patients are unique and it is exciting to see them grow and change over the course of their treatment.

I am married to my high-school sweetheart. We have two grown children and a precious granddaughter. I love walking, reading and spending time with my family.

Registered Dental Assistant

I love assisting Dr. Smith to create awesome smiles, ever since I joined  our office in 2010!  I've worked in dentistry since 1988, and orthodontics is definitely the best.  We get to see so many beautiful smiles at the end of treatment, and our patients actually like coming to their appointments!  Dr. Smith creates such a wonderful work environment here, and each day he makes me laugh!

I am married to a wonderful man named Stan.  We have four children, two girls and two boys.  We welcomed a grandson in 2011.  Stan and I have a pug named Nina! In our free time, we enjoy spending time at the lake and taking road trips.
