Bree

Bree

Registered Dental Assistant, Orthodontic Assistant

It’s fun to watch our patients change as their smiles emerge. Showing patients their starting photos, and then viewing the progress as their new smiles appear, always delights them.

I assist Dr. Heiner during patient visits by prepping the material used to place bands or arch wires, change ties, or deliver Invisalign® aligners.

When I’m not at work, I love spending time with family and friends, especially while camping, hiking, or bike riding. I am a passionate supporter of the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco Giants.


 

Cindy

Cindy

Lab Technician

I love helping people maintain their “Heiner Smile.” Working in our onsite lab, I craft the retainers that patients wear at the conclusion of treatment. These keep the teeth in proper alignment and maintain patients’ amazing smiles.

I love it when Dr. Heiner treats really difficult cases because he is so ingenious in his treatment approaches that it challenges me to create the involved, custom devices. 

I’ve been married to my best friend for over 30 years and have two grown sons. We love dogs and volunteer with a local dog rescue. I enjoy viewing films, traveling, cooking, and gardening.


 

Danel

Danel

Registered Dental Assistant, Orthodontic Assistant

I love it when we take off patients’ braces! Seeing the amazed look on their faces when they first look in the mirror is incredibly rewarding.

I help patients during office visits, and assist chairside as Dr. Heiner guides their treatment. I make sure he has what he needs to perform each treatment and I explain to every patient what we’re doing.

I’m happily married and have two boys and two girls. Besides being an ardent supporter at their sporting events, I enjoy traveling with our family to the beach and the mountains.


 

Erin

Erin

Office and Financial Manager

I enjoy keeping our practice running smoothly. This allows Dr. Heiner and our team to focus on what’s important: making our patients happy while we work on their smiles! I manage all aspects of our office. I also work directly with patients and parents: I help them make the most of their insurance benefits, along with setting financial arrangements.

I have a wonderful family and group of friends I enjoy spending time with. My hobbies include camping adventures with my husband, gardening, reading, and spoiling my grandchildren.


 

Gina

Gina

Lab Technician

I love working with my hands! In our onsite lab, I enjoy creating custom orthodontic appliances, because I know it’s important that each appliance fits and works properly so every patient can get the best results. I’m happy that I get to perform work duties I enjoy while helping people maintain lasting, beautiful smiles.

I cherish time spent with family and friends. I also like to watch baseball and work in my yard.


 

Kim

Kim

Scheduling Coordinator

I love watching our patients progress from “not wanting to smile” to SMILING ALL THE TIME! I firmly believe that when a person knows their teeth are straight and beautiful, it instills confidence in their life.

I greet patients and check them in and out when they arrive for their appointments. I also answer the phones and schedule visits.

In my free time, you’ll find me with my family at a sporting event, traveling, or hiking.


 

Kristine

Kristine

Registered Dental Assistant, Orthodontic Assistant

I love getting to know patients and helping them get beautiful new smiles. We’re always laughing and swapping jokes during their visits.

I assist Dr. Heiner in providing a variety of orthodontic procedures for our patients. As a chairside assistant, I explain what we’re doing at each visit, make sure the home-care instructions given to patients are understood, then motivate everyone to follow through with them.

I have been married to my husband Jeff for almost 20 years. We have a teenage son named Kai, a parakeet, and a black lab, Bubba. We enjoy trips to the ocean, swimming, and traveling.


 

Leann

Leann

Registered Dental Assistant, Imaging Coordinator

I enjoy meeting patients on their first visit and taking their starting photos and X-rays. It is fun to follow and document the progress of their new smiles, and show each patient how well they’re progressing toward their beautiful end results. But the most special moments of my workdays are seeing the smiles on patients’ faces when we take off their braces (or they complete Invisalign tray regimen) and they see their “new looks” for the first time.

My husband and I have been married for over 15 years and have two daughters. My favorite activities outside of work are going to the beach, gardening, and walking my dog.


 

Randi

Randi

Registered Dental Assistant, Orthodontic Assistant

I love the relationships that develop with our patients and their families as we interact with them over the years. It’s a joy to watch our great patients, people I care about, grow and change as their smile changes.

I assist Dr. Heiner with various orthodontic procedures and also help patients and parents understand the instructions they are given to take home and follow.

My world revolves around my two beautiful boys, Benjamin and Zachary, because I love being their Mama! I also enjoy being with friends and family, whether we’re just hanging out or on a camping adventure.


 

 

Teresa

Teresa

Treatment Coordinator

I enjoy getting to know patients and helping them understand what orthodontic care involves. I love seeing their end results and the increased confidence they gain when given a new smile.

I assist Dr. Heiner with each patient’s initial exam. Then I inform them and their parents (if the patient’s a minor) of proposed treatment and care options.

When I’m away from the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband, kids, and grandkids. I love the outdoors, traveling, music, and golf.
