I supervise the clinical area of our practice, as well as work with patients during bondings and adjustments. Every day is exciting here at Khara Orthodontics. I feel so lucky to come to work and jam out to great music! My husband Ed and I have three children: Caroline and twin boys, Zac and Cameron. We also have a Sheltie named Chevy. When I have the time, I love hanging out with friends and family, going to the beach, and shopping.
I love my job! I work with many of our new patients to clearly explain all their treatment options and related costs. Basically, I make sure that our patients and referring dentists have all the tools they need for the journey to the smile of their dreams. Another fun aspect of my job is planning all the exciting, special events we hold for our patients! Dr. Khara and the rest of the team are like one big family; we have so much fun together, both in and out of the office. At home, I have a wonderful husband named Cliff and three children, Andrew, Sarah, and Owen. Our malti-poo Miley makes our home complete. I love the beach, traveling, photography, and spending time with my family.
Orthodontic Assistant/Lab Technician
I can be found working in many areas around the practice, from completing adjustments and bonding to sterilization and lab work. While I love the one-on-one interactions I have with our patients, seeing their reactions when they get their braces off is the best part of my job. It’s great to see how much a patient's confidence has improved throughout treatment! I have a fiancé named Cisco and two daughters, Aniyah and Anastasia. We also have a boxer named Bella. I love spending time with my family, fishing, and laying out poolside.
I oversee appointments, train new employees, and assist Carolyn with the supervision of our assistants, in addition to coordinating our patients’ Invisalign® treatments. We have a wonderful office atmosphere that's full of music and smiles — it really helps our patients feel at home. Dr. Khara is not only an awesome boss, but he is also a great individual; he is very fun, honest, and always has a joke to make us laugh! I have a son named Jalen and a Yorkie-poo named Onyx. In my free time, I like to dance, travel, and eat. Also, be sure to check out my hair; it changes daily!
In addition to working with patients during their bonding, de-bonding, and adjustments, I also work with Caitlyn to coordinate our patients’ SureSmile treatments. I look forward to coming to our office each day. Whether I’m learning about a new treatment or just hanging out with the team, a day at Khara Orthodontics is always fun! I am originally from New Mexico and love traveling home to see my family. I also enjoy spending time with my friends, going on cruises, and relaxing at the beach.
