Meet Our Team



Office Manager

Karen keeps our practice running smoothly, and ensures that each patient has an excellent visit, every time. She is devoted to helping patients and their families, and loves seeing the changes in patients as their treatment progresses and their self-confidence grows. Seeing them smile more, with greater comfort and ease, makes her smile. Karen handles all financial matters for our office and stays on top of day-to-day happenings; she keeps everything in line and makes sure that the rest of the team has what they need so they can focus on what’s important: each person we serve.

Karen is an avid photographer and recently started photographing pregnant mothers and newborns. She and her husband Michael live in the foothills of Monrovia with their Chocolate Lab, Jake. Their backyard is frequently visited by local wildlife, including bears, deer, and coyotes. 





Treatment Coordinator

Monique is the team member who guides our patients and their parents through the new-patient process. She explains orthodontic treatment, talks about different options for creating a beautiful smile, and helps the family make financial arrangements. She’s especially good at finding payment terms that work for each family’s budget. Because she gets to know patients at the beginning of treatment, and is able to follow them while their new smile is being crafted, Monique feels especially invested in each patient and gets excited as they near treatment completion and their lovely, straightened teeth are ready to be shared with the world.

When she’s not helping our patients, Monique spends time with her three wonderful children. She also loves attending concerts, especially when it’s Bon Jovi on the stage!
