I work chairside with our doctor, providing whatever assistance is required to make the procedure run smoothly. At the same time, I’m focused on our patient, talking with them about what the doctor is doing, offering reassurance and encouragement if they’re concerned, and cracking jokes to keep them entertained.
I love seeing the relief on a parent’s face, when they realize that they can afford orthodontic care for their child. I coordinate insurance and financial arrangements. I work with parents to find a payment schedule that works with their family budget, ensuring that the patient can start treatment when they most need it.
I take X-rays, impressions, and photos. Since I spend less hands-on time I am able to spend extra time catching up with our patients. I love hearing their stories about school, the recent home game, or their latest-greatest adventure.
As an Orthodontic Assistant I work closely with Dr. Guymon and our patients when we install and remove their braces, as well as making adjustments over the course of treatment. I have worked as an Orthodontic Assistant for the last five years and I have enjoyed every minute of it! Working with patients and their families to create new, beautiful smiles is a very rewarding experience, particularly in this warm and friendly practice.
I am the voice behind the phone. When you call, chances are, I will be the voice on the other end. I make all the appointments and try to keep the day running on time. I love getting to know our patients and families. I have five children and three happy grandsons! In my spare time I do Taekwondo with my husband and two youngest children. I enjoy traveling to California and Texas to spend time with my grandsons.
I have been working for Dr. Guymon for 12 years. I assist with braces installation, as well as de-banding. In addition, I take x-rays, and make retainers. I’m lucky. I spend lots of time with our patients. I have really enjoyed and seeing their great smiles. I speak Spanish, and occasionally have the opportunity to translate! Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, my son and my three daughters.
