    Lorie RoyceScheduling CoordinatorI am the first smile you see as you come into our office. Behind that smile is the love of my life to whom I have been married since 1997. We have four beautiful children and two adorable grandbabies. My dog, Blue, keeps me busy and in shape with our daily walks. I love movies and traveling.

    My introduction to orthodontics began back in 1982. I am very blessed to have a job I love where I feel like part of a big family. I enjoy the relationships I build with our patients throughout their treatment and love to see their smiles evolve.

      Molly JonesTreatment CoordinatorOriginally from Washington State, I moved to Arizona when I was 18 with my parents. Later, I lived in Texas for about 3 years and had a blast while there. But I am super happy to be back in beautiful Arizona living near family again. My son and I adore our dog, Oliver. We love being together as we watch football, hockey, theater events and explore the outdoors.

      I have been working in orthodontics since 1997. The best part of my job is watching the transformation of a person’s life and smile. Having a beautiful smile is life changing and I feel blessed to be part of that amazing journey.

        Leigh Ann HillearyClinical AssistantI have been married to my best friend since 1998. We have two amazing sons and a beautiful golden retriever. When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, supporting my boys in their sporting adventures, volunteering at their schools and doing home improvement projects. Using a saw and hammer come as naturally to me as using my orthodontic tools.

        My career in orthodontics began in New Hampshire in 1990. Orthodontics is more than just a beautiful smile—it’s setting up a mouth for a lifetime of success. I love being a part of this astonishing transition, seeing people build self-esteem and feel confident about smiling. The look of amazement on patients’ faces when they review their before and after photos is priceless. I have the most rewarding job—meeting new people and developing new friendships.

          Odessa BrownClinical AssistantI am an Arizona native. I enjoy spending time with my husband and our dog, Guido. Crafting is my favorite pastime because it allows me to use my artistic talents. I, also, love to cook and bake special dishes for my husband. Whenever possible I support local businesses and make regular trips to the farmer’s market.

          I always knew I wanted to work in Orthodontics. Little did I know just how rewarding my job would be when I started in 2011. Watching the transformation of our patients’ smiles and the confidence they have gained during treatment is an amazing part of my day.

            I have worked in the dentistry field since 1986. I enjoy making orthodontic appliances because they are more challenging than crowns, dentures and bridges.

                    I was born and raised in Arizona. I have 3 amazingly perfect children of my own and 2 beautiful unique daughters who I call my own. When not at work I am my children's biggest fan at their sporting events. I love gardening, getting lost in my favorite book and spending time with the love of my life, Ryan.

                    I've been the the dental field since 2010. After joining the Orthodontic Gang recently, I loved it so much more. Seeing the transformations and confidence in patients makes my career choice as an Orthodontic Clinician that much more rewarding. This is a life changing experience for patients and I'm glad to be a part of this transformation.
