Back Office Lead
Katie grew up in the Northwest and has been assisting in oral surgery and orthodontics since 2009. Katie is all about getting down and dirty!
She loves to go camping and hunting with her Labradors, Brewer and Roxxie. (They’re adorable). She also has a black cat named Evie who loves to do some hunting of her own and bring in all kinds of creatures- from mice to lizards to birds. Although Katie wishes she would hunt down some Taco Bell for her.
Katie recently got married to her awesome partner Nick and they are expecting a baby boy this December!
She is one of our amazing assistants. Her two cats, Jack and Princess, are quite the characters. You won’t find Dani wearing the same pair of shoes twice! “If the shoe fits, buy it in every color!” Dani is a great cook and brings the best treats to us. Personal assistant to Katie- the hardest job ever.
Marisa is our awesome ortho assistant! She grew up in Bakersfield,CA (central CALI). Marisa recently moved to Reno! She loves being outdoors, fishing and hiking with her boyfriend. She has 2 cats: Malikhi, who’s about 10 years old and Amerikus, who is 3. When she’s not working or in the outdoors you can catch her watching some Netflix and cuddling with the kitties.
Leland Ortho Photo Booth
He IS the LIFE of the party! He takes photos, GIF’s, boomerangs and more! He is available for your school’s upcoming event, and he brings his friends from Leland Ortho along with him. Any questions- please call or text us for details!
This guy is a jack of ALL trades! Compared to a 2D XRay, his images show an accurate rendering of the skull and all structures inside of it (think teeth, roots of teeth, jaw joints, nerves, nasal passageways, width of jaws, airway, sinuses,etc). This is all just nerd speak for he allows Dr. Leland to create the most accurate and efficient treatment plans around! Oh and did we mention that he also allows Doc to precisely evaluate airway issues as well? I told you he is an all around Master of his Craft!
iTero Digital Scanner
He takes digital images of your teeth- think NO MORE goopy impressions that make you gag! Added bonus- these digital images are more precise than traditional impressions. And one last cool thing- these images are stored so no more wasting time having to come in to retake the impression if it’s lost, not accurate, etc. C-3PO has got you covered!
The Leland Ortho Sneak-Attack Squad
Gavin, Weston, and Mason can be found doing ninja moves around the office, telling jokes, and eating Goldfish from our snack tray. So what is their primary role at the office? Being cute! Duh.
