Daily job activities: I assist the Doctors is adding, removing and adjusting braces. I also assist in taking x-rays, photos, impressions and help keep the office clean and the instruments sterilized. Invisalign has become a big part of our office so I also take iTero scans, add attachments, insert aligners and assist with checkups. Patient education, answering questions, updating Patient chart notes and scheduling appointments is also a big part of my day, as well as correspondence with other offices or the Invisalign lab. Working with a Patient in my chair is my favorite but there is a lot of behind the scenes work that is done at all times too!
How about life outside of work? I’m a country girl. I grew up on a ranch and spent many days on a four-wheeler or in a tractor. I now live in town, but love taking my kids out to the farm whenever I can. I have an awesome husband, Garrett, 2 busy daughters Adley and Mayzee, and a house dog named Bogey! I love doing craft projects, gardening and baking when I catch a free moment. Road trips and camping are both things I love to do with my family. We try to be outside as much as we can!
What is your favorite part of working at Warford Orthodontics? I love seeing the before and after photos and noticing the change in our Patients confidence as their smiles improve. Some of the things we accomplish still amaze me, even after working here for years. Getting to know our Patients and their families during their treatment is my personal favorite. When a Patient feels comfortable and at home in our office, I know we are doing our job well and accomplishing more than just the great smile they leave with!
Any funny or heart-warming stories to share? Too many to pick just one, but I love when a new, young, nervous Patient turns into a confident ball of fire by the end of their treatment. Watching them grow is amazing! I also love hearing the stories from our adult Patients who are FINALLY doing treatment. The excitement and gratefulness they express makes our job all worth it.
What makes Warford Orthodontics different? Staff experience and care. We are all very knowledgeable in the dental field and we accompany that with a comfortable, friendly atmosphere. We treat our Patients like they are our family and I am proud of that.
