Scheduling and Marketing Coordinator

I love making a difference in the way people view themselves, and giving them a reason to smile. It’s a joy to watch each person change along with their smile: the boost to their self-confidence as their teeth straighten is amazing. I schedule patient visits to ensure we have a smooth flow with minimal wait time and that everyone has plenty of time with the doctor. I also handle our social media and create our nonprofit drives to help our community.

I grew up in rural Kansas. My husband Luke and I have two daughters, MaKayla & Kaytlin. Outside our regular work, we are also farmers. We have cattle, along with wheat and milo crops. Any extra time we have, we spend in Colorado seeing family and hiking in the mountains.

Financial Coordinator and Marketing Coordinator

I love working in a practice where everything we do is focused on our patients. Making sure they have a wonderful orthodontic experience and emerge with a healthy, breathtaking smile is the passion of everyone here. We’ve created a fun space and I love hearing our patients and team members laughing during visits. I primarily work behind the scenes, and handle a lot of the paperwork details, including insurance claims.

I’m married to Dr. Johnson. We have three children: Tucker, Jersey, and Cooper. Family time is a priority for us. When I have free time, I enjoy running, cooking, and being outdoors.

Treatment Coordinator

I love getting to know our new patients It’s wonderful to watch them go from feeling unsure or hesitant to excited about getting started on their new smile. Because we see patients for a couple of years, we often become close, and I treasure those friendships. I am with new patients and their families throughout their consultation. I make sure everyone understands what treatment involves. I also review financial and insurance details.

Born in Oregon, I lived in Minnesota, South Dakota, and Kansas City before moving to Hays. My husband was born and raised in this area and we’ve loved raising our daughter here. We have horses and an arena in Walker where we host horse shows.

Orthodontic Assistant

I love being part of a team that makes people laugh and smile while we create their new smile. Getting to know our patients on a personal level, learning about their families, lives, and interests, is rewarding. Best of all, though, is seeing a person smile and thrive after treatment is complete. I assist Dr. Johnson as he performs various procedures, and make sure our patient is comfortable throughout. I also interpret for our Spanish-speaking families.

I was born in Mexico and raised in Holcomb. Now I live in Hays with my husband and our two children, Mikey and Mya. In our spare time, we love watching movies, going bowling, and attending our kids’ sporting events. My all-time favorite pastime is dancing!

Orthodontic Assistant

I love watching the amazing transformations in our patients. From their blossoming self-esteem to their complete smile makeover, it’s all incredible. Being able to provide a life-changing service to friends and neighbors is fulfilling. I spend my days delivering one-to-one care for our patients under Dr. Johnson’s direction. I also offer chairside assistance when needed, to help the doctor and ensure our patient is relaxed and comfy.

Originally from Dodge City, I live in Catherine now with my husband Tyler and our two children, Caden and Brooklyn. When not working, I love going to the lake with my family and enjoy playing softball, too.

Orthodontic Assistant

I love working with our patients and becoming friends with them. It’s a great experience to see them transform as they move through treatment. Of course, the end results, and the difference in the person’s smile and self-confidence, are best of all! I provide chairside assistance to Dr. Johnson, to support him and our patient. I also offer one-on-one patient care at the direction of Dr. Johnson.

I’m a native of Hill City, and now I live in Hays. My husband Jamie and I have a son, Trent. I love watching him play sports, especially soccer. Time with family and friends is important to me, especially camping at the lake.
