Katie

Patient Relations Coordinator/Registered Dental Assistant

I have been a part of Dr. Smith’s team since 2012. It is my job to make sure the office runs smoothly and to ensure the best patient experience. I previously assisted Dr. Smith chairside for eight years before my current position, so I know the ins and outs of orthodontic treatment. I love getting to be a part of this life-changing event in patients’ lives. Seeing our patients grow up throughout their treatment with us is amazing!

My husband and I live in Leander with our two beautiful little girls. We are high school sweethearts and have lived locally our whole lives. We spend most of our free time outside playing and exploring!

Financial Coordinator

I have been a member of Dr. Smith’s team since 2009. 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 with a lovely daughter and a sweet puppy named Bentley. My favorite pastime is spending time with my family.

Treatment Coordinator

I joined Dr. Smith’s office in 2008. 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.  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 joined Dr. Smith’s team in 2014. I assist him with patients to help create beautiful smiles. I have been working in orthodontics since 2003. My favorite part of work is meeting new people and being a part of creating a life-changing smile! I enjoy working with Dr. Smith and the team. We all work together to build lasting relationships and amazing smiles.

I live in Leander with my husband Aaron and two boys Devyn and Dakota. I enjoy being outside, camping, and anything to do with water. I also enjoy building models and home renovations.

Adrienne

Registered Dental Assistant

I have been a part of the orthodontic family since 2009 and I had the pleasure of joining Dr. Smith’s team in January 2021. Dr. Smith and his team are amazing and anyone who comes in to our office will feel at home. My favorite part of orthodontics is all the smiles and meeting new people. But most of all, I love getting to remove a patient’s expanders when they are finished (I know that’s weird). Being in the orthodontic field had taught me compassion, patience, and not to sweat the small stuff. Life is beautiful and we must live it.

Ya’ll, I lived in Texas my whole life. I have been married to my best friend for 27 years. We have two amazing adult boys, and just recently gained a daughter-in-law. Life is what you make of it and I choose happiness.

Registered Dental Assistant

I have worked in general dentistry since 2016 with training in many specialties such as periodontics, pediatrics, and oral surgery. I joined Dr. Smith’s team in July of 2021 eager to learn orthodontics! Dr. Smith and his team members welcomed me with open arms and have been great mentors. I love how hands-on orthodontics is and getting to learning new skills every day.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my future husband and my puppy that is not so much a puppy anymore!
