Meet the Team

We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice.

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

Front Office Team

The Wired Ortho front office team is here to help with all of your scheduling, financial, and insurance needs. Most often, our front desk staff members are the first smiling faces you’ll see when you come into the office.

They’re always available to answer any question you may have and want to make your time here as pleasant, comfortable, and stress-free as possible. Our office team puts enormous emphasis on providing the very best customer service to ensure you not only get an effective and excellent outcome from your treatment, but also enjoy your time in our office.

Shelli, Practice Administrator

I have always loved working with people, especially children, and was drawn to orthodontics. I am an RDA and worked in the clinic for many years. I love orthodontics and enjoy working with the best orthodontists in town to improve their practices and the patients’ experience. My favorite part of orthodontics is seeing the transformation of a patient through their orthodontic journey. In addition to a healthy bite and a great smile, it is amazing to see the difference in their self-confidence.

I am head over heels in love with my husband Corey. We have seven children together, ages 26 to nine (yes, I know it is ridiculous!) We love the outdoors, hiking, live music, and traveling. I love sunshine, water, and sand, which is why my favorite travel destination is Kauai. My favorite activity in the world is competitive slalom water skiing!

Amber, Marketing Coordinator

I'm responsible for all of the marketing throughout the office. The cool prizes we give away, the game trucks that come to the office, and all of the other fun events shared through our social media outlets are my responsibility. There’s never a dull moment here at Wired Ortho!

I am a Texas State alumnus from Bastrop. I am also a foodie with a slight shoe obsession. I enjoy drag racing, and have been competing for about six years. If I’m not out spending money, watching movies, or hanging out with family and friends, you can find me lounging around in great weather with a good book!

Robbie, Financial Coordinator

My goal is to prepare financial arrangements that work with each family’s budget while keeping in mind their overall treatment needs. I also work with insurance companies to determine our patients’ benefits. I love helping people achieve healthy, beautiful smiles, and getting to share the experience with amazing people.

I have two wonderful sons, one of whom proudly serves in the US Army. The other is an amazing father to my three beautiful grandchildren. I am also the proud mom of two daughters-in-law. The youngest of six, I am blessed to have such a wonderful family.

Christy, New Patient Coordinator

I support our treatment coordinators by compiling patients’ concerns and other information during the initial phone call, so when they come to their initial consultation, our treatment coordinators have useful information ready for their needs. I enjoy getting to know our patients and seeing their self-esteem improve because they aren’t ashamed or embarrassed by their smile anymore.

I have been married to my husband Joshua for 15 years and have two beautiful girls — Morgan (Cricket) and Sloane (Buggie) — and two needy dogs, Millie (Milster) and Kuma (Kuma-ma-ta-ta). I love to bake so the office staff are my guinea pigs! When I’m not at work, I run my kids around to their activities or do volunteer work with Austin Junior Forum.

Kristy, Treatment Coordinator

I began my dental career as a records tech, then moved to assisting, lead assistant, and finally became a treatment coordinator. I love meeting new patients and providing affordable options for an amazing smile. Our office is such a special place. To have so much loyalty and faith in each other under one roof is rare to come by, but we have it!

I married my very best friend Derek in 2016. We have three dogs named Laela, Hydro, and Outlaw. If we are not at our land barbecuing and dancing, then you can find us lakeside on Lake Travis, riding jet skis and relaxing.

Holly, Treatment Coordinator

My goal is to continue to provide the very best client experience and build long-term relationships with all of Dr. Chris’s patients. I enjoy working with the kiddos directly, and love the one-on-one interaction with the parents. It’s so rewarding to help patients on their journey to a smile they deserve.

Born and raised in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, I moved to Austin in 2008. I enjoy shopping, kickball, traveling, and spending time with family. I currently have four kiddos of my own: a 14-year-old Chihuahua named Lucy, two six-year-old Shih Tzus named Lilly and Lucy, and a six-year-old, one-eyed Australian Shepherd named Bear.

Fernando, Treatment Coordinator Assistant

I welcome our awesome new patients into our practice, and am responsible for taking the initial records. You might also catch me assisting chairside! I love how every day introduces itself with a new set of challenges and adventures. Working and communicating with amazing patients is by far the best part of my job! Working with Dr. Chris and this team is fantastic! We are all very invested in our work and our responsibility to the patients and their journey into a better smile.

My wife and I absolutely love going to the movies where we can get a huge tub of popcorn and enjoy a good film. We have two cats, who we love, but are sure they are indifferent toward us. I have a passion for soccer and am currently trying my hand in music production during my spare time.

Vickie, Scheduling Coordinator

My job is to greet all patients and make sure they get checked in. I also bake cookies and keep the coffee bar stocked! I enjoy getting to know the patients and their families as they become a part of our practice family. We laugh together, problem solve together, celebrate together, grieve together, and most of all, work as a team.

I have been married to my husband Jack for 44 years. We raised two girls and two boys and are now blessed with six grandchildren and one on the way. My hobbies are sewing, working with flowers, reading, and playing Scrabble. When I am not working, I like to travel to see my kids and spend time with them. That’s when I am my happiest!

David, Scheduling Coordinator

I began working at an orthodontic office as a dental assistant when I was 17. It was my first job, and I have loved this field ever since! I love witnessing the amazing effect that orthodontic treatment has in the smiles and lives of our patients. I really appreciate working with the Wired staff because everyone is very kind and professional. We all work hand-in-hand to provide our patients with the best possible care.

I was born and raised here in Austin and graduated from Austin High School. I love spending time with my family and friends, and when I'm not in the office working, I'm out spending time volunteering.

Sarah, Scheduling Coordinator

Since 2008, I've been building relationships with our patients! I'm here to assist with scheduling, insurance questions and anything else you might need. Our doctors are great and make it fun coming in to work everyday!

When I'm not in the office, you can find me teaching yoga or outside exploring Austin. I love hiking, mountain biking and swimming!

Raquel, Growth Guidance Coordinator

I work with many of our new patients to begin them on the path to a beautiful, straight smile. When patients are not quite ready for braces, but will likely need them in the future, they come and visit me. I love watching as they grow and gain confidence with a new smile. Building relationships with our patients is my favorite part of my job!

I was born and raised here in Austin. I am married to a man who keeps me on my toes and have two amazing children, Jacob and Emma. We are constantly on the go! I love shopping, getting in a workout if my hectic schedule allows, and cuddling with our two dogs (Gus and Bo) and our two cats (Biggie and Smalls).

Clinical Team

Our clinical team helps to place braces, change wires, take any necessary X-rays and photographs, and give instruction on the best ways to take care of your braces or appliance. They love meeting new patients and take the time to make sure your treatment is an easy, comfortable and all-around positive experience from the moment you enter the door.

Staying on top of technology is of great importance to our assistants, and they take numerous continuing education courses throughout the year in order to make your treatment as effective and efficient as possible. Our assistants look forward to helping you or your child gain the self-esteem and confidence that comes with a beautiful, straight smile.

Debra, Clinical Assistant

I started my career in 2000 in general dentistry as an administrative assistant, decided to further my education, and became an orthodontic assistant in 2006. I joined the hardworking, dedicated Wired team in 2013, and since then, have been creating smiles that last a lifetime!

I’m happily married to my husband, Alex and have two beautiful children named Katelyn and Kaleb. We also have a dog named Sweetie. I enjoy taking family vacations, movie nights, baking, and listening to live music. In my spare time, I also volunteer for my kids’ cheer and football activities.

Casey, Clinical Assistant

I have an associate's degree in medical office management, and joined the wonderful team at Wired Orthodontics in 2012. The best part of my job is being able to make an impact on someone’s life by changing his or her self-esteem with something as simple as a new smile. I also love working with my co-workers: they’re like family!

I have the greatest dog in the whole wide world named Dunken. I also have a niece and nephew whom I adore so much! When I’m not hanging out with Dunken or my niece and nephew, you can find me at the gym working out!

Carrie, Clinical Assistant

I feel like I’ve been involved in dentistry for my entire life! My family owned a dental lab in Austin growing up, and my grandfather was a dentist, so it was only natural for me to choose a career in orthodontics! Dr. Chris is an amazing orthodontist to work with. I feel like I have gained so much knowledge while working with him and our team.

When I'm not working, I enjoy riding my Harley through the hill country on nice cool days and barbecuing on the weekends with my soon-to-be husband and stepson.

Lori, Clinical Assistant

While I officially entered the dental field in 2010, since my dad is a dentist and my mom is an office manager at a dental office, you could say I was born into it! I love meeting new people and forming new friendships. It’s great to create beautiful smiles and inspire confidence in them! Wired Orthodontics is home away from home. They are all a great group of people, and we spend our days laughing a lot!

I love anything that has to do with being outdoors: skiing, camping, hiking, etc. I have two dogs and five cats, and love spending time with my family and friends. I am also an avid foodie, and love trying new things!

Hanh, Clinical Assistant

I started my dental career in 2012 in the administrative part of orthodontics and shifted to the clinical side in 2014. I appreciate having so much one-on-one time with each patient. I love learning about them and hope that their visit at our office is the best part of their day. Getting to see our patients’ smiles transform is my favorite thing!

At home, I have a four-legged child named Reese. I enjoy jogging the downtown trails and am always up to take advantage of what the city of Austin has to offer. If i'm not in the office helping to create beautiful new smiles, or running the downtown trails, you can usually find me at a race track, as I love cars!

Jennie, Clinical Assistant

I am new to Wired but have been in the dental field since 2012. I love creating beautiful smiles and meeting new people! The Wired office is so welcoming that I feel as if I've been here for years. Everyone is so sweet and awesome!

I recently moved to Austin from Washington, and I keep myself pretty busy with work. I love trying new things, and when I'm not working, I'm out exploring Austin  and everything it has to offer with my Doberman Pinscher, Lola.

Julian, Clinical Assistant

You will see me around the office taking initial records, scans and photos for new patients. I'm new to the dental field but so far my favorite part of my job is learning new things and helping change the lives of our patients! I’ve learned so much in the little time I’ve been here. There’s nothing better than seeing the glow of a patients face when they get their braces off. I love this team! Everyone is so friendly and helpful. We all get along so well together like one big family!

I am a very active guy. It’s hard for me to sit still! My favorite sports would have to be swimming and the occasional video game. I own a juvenile ball python named Stella and she’s a little over a foot long! I graduated from Leander High School and originally wanted to be a computer scientist, but the idea of sitting in front of a computer screen all day wasn’t very appealing. I became very interested in dental assisting and immediately fell in love!
