Roxy was born and raised just down the road in San Marcos, Texas. After having such a great experience with her orthodontist when she was younger, she decided to go into the dental field over 10 years ago. Customer service is her top priority as she ensures parents and patients are comfortable every step of the way with their treatment decisions.
Roxy enjoys crafting and spending time with her family. Her big family includes her husband, Orlando, her son, Jasper, and her dogs, Misha, Diesel, Rocky, and Coco.
Janie moved to Austin from the Corpus Christi area more than 20 years ago and never looked back. She offers more than 20 years of experience as an orthodontic assistant and couldn't imagine herself in any other profession. Offering great customer service and getting to know every patient as well as experiencing their smile transformation are some of Janie's favorite parts of her career.
When not assisting in the creation of beautiful smiles, Janie loves to dance, travel, and read. She also enjoys socializing with family and friends, but most of all, she loves to spend time spoiling her Havanese pup, Domino.
