I love getting to know our patients and their families. It’s fun to see how people change during treatment and watch their excitement grow as they develop a great smile!
I work at the front desk where I schedule appointments, answer the phones, accept and enter payments, verify insurance, and handle correspondence. I also keep the lobby and reception area clean and organized and, when needed, help clean chairs in the back and sterilize instruments.
Outside of work, I love time with my husband Kody and our animals: one dog, two cats, two crested geckos, one spiny-tailed iguana, and a lot of snakes! I also love time with my nieces, Vyla and Vivian, and enjoy reading, knitting, and visiting old plantation homes.
Records Technician, Sterilization and Clinical Assistant
I enjoy spending time with and getting to know our patients and their families. During treatment, everyone changes and I get to see those changes from visit to visit. Those finished smiles, and our patients’ happiness, are so rewarding!
I spend my days in our clinic. I take and update patient records, including X-rays, scans, impressions, and pictures. I also sterilize instruments and offer chairside assistance to Dr. Bryan during procedures.
I’ve lived in Huntsville since 2006, been married for more than ten years, and have a daughter. We love to spend time together as a family, going to parks, movies, playing video games, and attending church.
Orthodontic Assistant and Inventory Control
I like watching our patients grow and transform. It is a blessing to see a shy or reserved patient bloom into an outgoing, happily social person!
I assist Dr. Bryan, chairside, from start to finish for each procedure. I also make sure our office is stocked with all the supplies needed to run efficiently, and am cross-trained in all aspects of the office so I can cover other positions when needed.
Family is everything to me. The greatest joys in my life are my husband, three sons, daughter-in-law, and grandson. When I’m not working, my priority is as much family time as possible! I love fishing, especially at our family fishing cabin, as well as traveling and reading. At home on our small farm, I enjoy being surrounded by all our animals: cattle, horses, chickens and turkeys, a pet pig, sheep, deer, and cats!
I enjoy the variety of my days and all the wonderful people I meet and spend time with. I feel lucky because I get to meet people as they start their orthodontic journey and then see how they grow and change as they achieve a great smile!
I welcome prospective patients and parents, introduce them to our team and the orthodontic experience, and walk them through their initial exam with Dr. Bryan. When finished, I review the treatment plan Dr. Bryan has designed, answer questions, and make sure people are able to make informed decisions about braces.
I graduated from Alpha Omega Academy and Sam Houston State University. Now I live in Huntsville with my husband Jason and our two young daughters, Vyla and Vivian.
Records Technician and Clinical Assistant
I like meeting new patients and learning who they are during their visits. I find I constantly learn new things because of what they share!
I am cross-trained in all aspects of our office. Most of my time is spent in our clinic, where I assist Dr. Bryan with a range of orthodontic procedures. I also take initial, progress, and final records for our patients.
Outside the office, I love spending time with my family, my wonderful husband, and my Blue Heeler, Callie Jo. I love to paint, enjoy being outside, and like trying new-to-me foods.
I like getting to know our patients and their families. It is amazing to see how changing a person’s smile can completely change their life, and I feel lucky because I see that every day!
My days are constantly busy. I handle all insurance claims, as well as accept and enter payments. I meet with patients and parents to review and decide on payment options and also review contracts.
I keep busy when I’m not at the office as I am an up-and-coming reptile breeder. My wife Alex and I have a lot of snakes, along with two crested geckos and an iguana!
Orthodontic Chairside Assistant
I love getting to know our patients and watching them change as their smile changes. I have worked in the field since 1976 and have seen our profession evolve. What hasn’t changed, though, is how happy people are with their finished smiles!
I handle all things related to ensuring a pleasant orthodontic experience. I seat patients, take X-rays and impressions, size bands, and prepare teeth for bonding. I also shape and place wires, talk with patients and parents about home care, and update parents about progress. Additionally, I bake birthday cakes for referring dentists and gift baskets for patient contest winners.
Byron, my husband, is a retired state police captain. We share his daughter, Angela, and have two grandsons. Outside of work I am very active in my church, where I serve on the personnel and finance committee and am in charge of the kitchen. I love to fish, garden, travel, and be with family. I also have a deep passion for baking, cooking, and organizing, and I love to host parties, decorate, and craft!
Orthodontic Chairside Assistant/ Lab Tech
I love watching the patients come in at a young age and shy with a challenging smile. Then treating them for the next few years and seeing their personality develop and their confidence grow. That’s the best part of working in orthodontics—seeing all the smiles!
I joined Dr. Bryan’s team in 2004. As one of his assistants, I assist with patients’ treatment, keep a log of all appliances coming in and going out of the office, make sure all appliances are delivered on time and train new staff members on our policies and procedures. We have a great team and everyone here works well together for the benefit and welfare of our patients.
I come from a very large family where I am the youngest of nine. My father passed away when I was very young, so my mom raised all nine of us on her own! My family is very close; we are each other’s best friends. I am also a huge Dallas Cowboys fan, along with my entire family.
