Scheduling Coordinator & Registered Dental Assistant
I love working with all our wonderful patients and their parents. While our professional and caring staff members are also marvelous, it’s our patients who really light-up our office. So many of them are excited about getting braces and their enthusiasm is contagious. I primarily work at the front desk, greeting patients and parents when they arrive, answering phones, and scheduling appointments. When needed I also assist in the back office. I am the proud mother of three children and I have a beautiful grandson, as well. I love water sports and being near the ocean.
Office Manager & Registered Dental Assistant
Our awesome patients are the very best part of coming to work every day. It’s very rewarding to have patients return for follow-up visits and hear about their accomplishments and milestones. We become very connected with, and invested in, our patients’ lives. My job duties involve overseeing all aspects of our practice, ensuring that Dr. Boulton and our team members have all the tools, resources, and support needed to provide the highest quality care and experience for our family of patients. Occasionally I work in our back office, when needed, as an RDA. I love cooking, reading, movies, and entertaining friends and family. I’ve been married for 22 years, to my high school sweetheart, and we have two amazing boys who are now in high school. I’ve recently returned to college to finish my Bachelor’s degree.
I enjoy working with our patients and their parents to create financial arrangements and payment plans that fit their budget. When I see the relief on a parent’s face, as they realize that they can afford the orthodontic care that will transform their child’s smile and self-esteem, I know we’ve done a good thing. That’s what we’re about here: putting the needs of the patients before everything else. As financial coordinator, I work to make sure that orthodontia is affordable to our patients, whether or not they have insurance. I have a wonderful husband and a beautiful daughter, Sierra, who is currently attending college to pursue a career in dental hygiene. In my hours away from the office, I love spending time with my family and laughing at the jokes and stories we share.
Back Office & Registered Dental Assistant
My favorite part of my job is seeing kids grow-up and being a part in helping to make a beautiful smile. I know how important having healthy, straight teeth is, and when I can assist with that process, I know that I’ve made a difference in the life of a patient that I’ve come to think of as a friend. Working in orthodontics is rewarding, that way. I assist our doctor in the back office when he’s treating our patients. When I’m not at work, you’ll find me spending time with my family, including my spouse of 16 years, two sons, and my daughter. I love watching them play sports. When I have free time, I enjoy running and have run in four half-marathons, and I love the Ragnar Relays, too.
Marketing & Community Program Coordinator
I know that the orthodontic services offered at our practice are the best available. We have an amazing team and everyone is extremely patient-focused. Our patients are incredible people and they’re always excited to come in for their visits, wanting to tell us about their latest adventures. My work involves promoting Boulton Orthodontic to the general dental providers in our neighboring communities. I also coordinate the STAR “Student Top Effort Achievement Recognition” awards program in the cities of Cypress, Huntington Beach, Los Alamitos, and La Palma. In my personal life, I have been married to my wonderful husband, John, for more than 30 years. Together we run a non-profit organization helping youths achieve their goals and dreams by attending college through the game of golf. John and I have an amazing son, Kyle, who is currently working hard to become a PGA Tour professional.
Registerd Dental Assistant
I love making an apprehensive patient feel comfortable and welcome. Being able to see the transformation of someone’s self confidence through their journey to a beautiful smile is something I have a huge empathy for. Dr. Boulton and our entire office are really a rare find. Dr. Boulton has a genuine kindness and concern not only for his patients but the community as well. He goes out of his way to help others, and he gives his time and efforts to others in need. Our office works great as a true team to make sure your time is valued and patients are done on time. It really goes to show, you get what you give! I love traveling, painting, cooking, photography, river fun, and spending time with my husband and daughters.
