Meet Team Tiki

We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.


Kristofer

Office Manager

We have the most amazing patients! It’s very rewarding to build relationships with them and ensure every visit is full of smiles and laughs. As our office manager, I coordinate between the doctors, staff, patients, and patient families. My top priority is making sure everything goes smoothly so our patients’ experience is exceptional! I had head gear and braces when I was younger, so I’m always showing our patients what they can achieve.

I’m an Arizona native and the third generation in my family to attend Mesa High. When I’m not at work, I’m usually spending time with my wife and three children: two boys and a little girl. I enjoy both playing and watching sports and always find time for a game of cards or poker.


Tricia

Treatment Coordinator

I enjoy building relationships with our patients and families. It’s great to be part of a team that makes it possible for people to receive the best orthodontic care and finish with a lifetime of wonderful smiles! I see our first-time patients, take their initial photos and X-rays, and work with them and the doctor during the first exam. Then I explain the treatment plan and answer questions so patients can make a well-informed decision about their future smile.

I’ve been married for more than 30 years and have four children and three grandchildren. I love cooking meals and spending time with my family. I also love my heels and never come to work without them: they’re a passion of mine!


Lorenia

Financial and Insurance Coordinator

We have such a happy office that I look forward to coming to work each morning! It’s a good feeling to be part of a team that helps people achieve smiles that change their lives. I work with patients and parents to create a payment plan that works with a family’s budget. I also verify benefits and handle insurance billing, so patients get the most from their coverage. The relief on parents’ faces when they realize they can give their child the gift of a great smile is priceless!

I’m married and love spending time with my husband, son, and daughter. We enjoy watching movies together.


Kristy

Marketing Coordinator

I love meeting new people and seeing how each person becomes more confident and outgoing as people get their new smile. Orthodontics changes patients’ lives, especially those who thought they’d never like their smile. We help increase each person’s confidence and their quality of life! I build relationships with patients, families, referring dental offices, and our community. I enjoy teaching people about the benefits of orthodontics and how we can change their life!

I’m married and have both a son and a daughter. I enjoy keeping active through yoga, cross fitness, and kick boxing, and I like reading, too. Spending time and adventuring with my family, especially when traveling, is always enjoyed!


Stacey

Front Office Coordinator

I enjoy welcoming patients and hearing what’s been happening since their last visit. Each patient is important to me and to our doctors and team: We love being part of a person’s life during treatment and enjoy seeing them in the community! Working at the front desk, I do anything our doctors and office manager ask of me. I also assist our financial coordinator.

In my spare time, I like being with my three sons and stepson, especially when we get to travel. I love watching and playing baseball, too.


Shannon

Front Office Coordinator

I look forward to patient visits, since that’s when I hear what they’ve been up to and about their latest adventures. Our patients and their families are some of the best people, and I’m so glad we’re able to help each attain the smile they desire! I work in our front office: welcoming patients, checking them in, scheduling visits, and answering the phones.


Suzy

Front Office Coordinator

It’s inspiring to see the difference our doctors and team make in people’s lives! When patients don’t like their smile, they tend to be unhappy and withdrawn. But with their new smile, their personality shines and they can’t stop smiling! I answer the phones, schedule visits, and greet and check in patients. I also assist in the clinic when needed and help with taking records.

I’m an Arizona native and have four beautiful children and three amazing grandchildren. I love spending time with my family and being outdoors.


Heather

Lead Clinical Assistant

I enjoying going on the journey with our patients as they move from crooked teeth to beautiful smiles. Their excitement on the day they get their braces and their excitement the day we remove the brackets are the best: Patients can’t stop smiling, and I’m thrilled for them! I make sure our patients have a fabulous orthodontic experience, and ensure our clinic flows smoothly and we have all needed supplies on hand.

I’m married and have a son, two daughters, three dogs, and a cat. When I’m not at work, I love time with my family and traveling, especially to the beach!


Nestor

Clinical Assistant and Lab Technician

I enjoy talking and laughing with our patients and their families. It’s incredible to watch someone’s personality grow as their smile turns around and they see the change in their appearance! I work chairside, to help the doctors with patient care and make sure our patient is comfortable. I also handle the lab work for patients’ retainers, which keep their finished smiles looking perfect!

I have two sons, am a big sports fanatic, and love the great outdoors. I love being involved in our community and helping others, especially during the holiday season.


Alisa

Clinical Assistant

I love our patients and working with great doctors and a team to make new, beautiful smiles! It’s fun to become friends with patients and families and see them become happier and confident as a result of treatment. I help patients during visits by working chairside to support the doctor and telling our patient what we’re doing. The best part of my work is being surrounded by smiles all day!

When I’m not working, I love spending time with my spouse, son, and daughter. I cheer for the Denver Broncos and love to travel!


Yuliana

Clinical Assistant

I like working with all our wonderful patients and seeing how confident they become when they see their new smile! We have such a friendly, happy practice, and it’s fun to spend time talking with patients during procedures. I provide chairside assistance, help our doctors with placing and removing braces, change wires, and anything else that needs doing.

I have a daughter and a son and love my time with them. I also love the Arizona Cardinals, hiking, and working out.


Julianne

Clinical Assistant

I enjoy making our patients feel comfortable during their visit and creating a fun environment. This is a positive, happy office and each patient responds with excitement as soon as they arrive. The best day is when a patient finishes and sees their incredible new smile for the first time; we all celebrate with them! I offer chairside assistance, to support the doctor and patient during procedures.

When I’m not working, being with my family is a priority. I’m happily married and a proud mother to six boys! I like photography and art, love the outdoors, and love country dancing.
