Meet the Team

We realize that all patients are unique and deserve orthodontic care which addresses their individual needs. Our talented and fun-loving team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable and rewarding orthodontic experience.

We are pleased to welcome you into our orthodontic family and look forward to assisting you to achieve your ideal smile.







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.




Office and Financial Manager

It's hard to believe I have been working for Dr. Heiner for over 30 years!  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, helping them make the most of their insurance benefits, along with handling the accounts and 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.




Lab Technician

I have worked for Dr. Heiner for over 26 years. I currently work in our onsite lab making custom appliances. My goal is to provide each patient with a perfect fitting appliance to retain their beautiful "Heiner Smile".

I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and dogs. My hobbies are attending baseball games and concerts, antiquing, and anything outdoors.



Registered Dental Assistant

I truly enjoy my career in orthodontics. When a new patient comes into our office for traditional braces or Invisalign, I am happy to walk them through the entire beginning of their new 'Heiner Smile'. 

When I am not working in orthodontics I am a substitute para-educator for special needs children. I have a passion for helping my students or my patients learn, grow, and feel comfortable in any situation.

In my spare time, I enjoy working on never-ending home projects. I love to spend time with my adult son and daughter and our favorite place to go is Disneyland! I am a huge Disney fan and I love to talk and share stories about my "happy place". So please share your Disney stories with me!




Registered Dental Assistant

I have been an orthodontic assistant for over 30 years! I enjoy my time with patients, helping to create their new smile. 

Outside of the office, I enjoy working in my yard and playing with my two dogs, Timmy and CJ. My husband and I love baseball and we are big Giant's fans. I love spending time with my two adult children and I also love to travel. Disneyland is one of my favorite destinations. I love to shop and go on all the rides!

I have a major sweet tooth and I am known at the office for all the treats I like to share - especially donuts!



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.




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.

I am married to my best friend and have two daughters. My favorite activities outside of work are going to the beach, gardening, and walking my dogs.


Registered Dental Assistant

What's not to love about orthodontics? I love being a part of making a patient's smile beautiful!

I have over 17 years of experience working with Dr. Heiner. Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my two wonderful nephews. I also enjoy cooking for large family and friend gatherings. I have recently tried my hand at gardening...and I haven't killed anything yet! Yay!!



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 new husband, Kevin, and 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.



Registered Orthodontic Assitant

My oldest daughter was born with a cleft palate, which prompted me to pursue a career in orthodontics. I wanted to understand and know more about orthodontic treatment for special cases such as hers. 

Watching our patients grow during their smile journey and getting to know them is very rewarding to me.

I am very excited to become a new homeowner with my partner and two daughters. I enjoy traveling to warm sunny places like the coast and visiting Disneyland. I am not a fan of the snow or cold weather!




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 the 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.
