Financial Coordinator and Marketing Coordinator

I have the awesome opportunity to work in the same office as my husband! I am usually behind closed doors, taking care of financials, insurance, and tons of other fun stuff! 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.

Dr. Johnson and I have three kids who are very involved in sports and activities. We love to spend time as a family outdoors. Much of our time is spent watching sporting activities, going to the area lakes, camping, and seeking adventures wherever we can find them! We are also involved in many community events. I love to spend the time I have been given helping others, especially those in the foster care system and the underserved.

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 our patients change along with their smiles: 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 fun graphics to market our nonprofit drives to help our community.

I grew up in rural Kansas. My husband Luke and I have two daughters, MaKayla and Kaytlin. We enjoy being outside at our family farm, swimming, and softball when it’s the season. We also love going to the mountains and on hikes and spending as much time with friends and family as possible. We’re always on the go!

Treatment Coordinator

I love getting to know our new patients! My job entails greeting all new patients and sitting in on their first consultation with Dr. Johnson, and then explaining their treatment plan and financial options. I love being able to help make things work financially so families can manage the cost. Most of all, I love meeting all the new families and watching the transitions, not only in their teeth, but also in their confidence during the time they are here.

I have a beautiful daughter Olivia who is my pride and joy. She is going into her senior year. We spend most of our time with horses, as she teaches horse lessons and competes in barrel racing and other equine events. I enjoy the rural life very much but I also like to travel when I can and explore new places.

Orthodontic Assistant

I love watching the amazing transformations in our patients from start to finish. Their confidence boost at the end of treatment is always a bonus! 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. We have an amazing team vibe where we all just know each other and are there to help no matter what needs done. It’s amazing to work in a place where you know your teammates will always be there to help!

I live in Catherine with my husband Tyler, two kids Caden and Brooklyn, and our German shepherd named Zeus. I love going to the lake, playing softball, and attending my children’s sports activities.

Orthodontic Assistant

I love getting to know each patient on a personal level and seeing the transformations each patient goes through from beginning to end and the confidence that builds through it all. I provide chairside assistance to Dr. Johnson, to support him and our patients. I so appreciate the bond I have with each and every team member. Everyone is so easy going and we make an amazing team!

I am a native of Hill City, as is my husband Jamie, but we have lived in Hays for 25 years. We have a son Trent who will be a freshman in high school this year. We enjoy going to any and all sporting activities that our son is in and we love supporting our hometown FHSU Tigers at basketball and football games! We love spending time at the lake camping as well. Time with family and friends is what is most important to me!

Orthodontic Assistant

It’s so rewarding to see our patients gain confidence that will last them a lifetime. I work one-on-one with patients, assisting in treatments and procedures with Dr. Johnson, and ensuring that patients are happy and comfortable throughout their appointments. I’m excited to be a new member of this team—we create an awesome atmosphere that is super fun to be around!

Outside of work, I love spending time with my family, friends, and dogs. I also enjoy exercising, gardening, and cooking!
