Office Manager

Hi, I’m Celeste and I have been working here since 1998. I am originally from Los Angeles, but have been in Albuquerque since 1987, so I call this home. I love what I do here since I am involved in every aspect of our patients’ care from start to finish. I am still amazed at the changes we can make in people’s smiles. I have a great staff to work with so that makes it extra enjoyable to come to work each day.

On the home front, I am married, have three children, five wonderful grandchildren, and two Siberian huskies that rule my world. I look forward to meeting you and making “getting braces” a great experience!



Orthodontic Assistant

My name is Heather. I have been a Tooth Wrangler since August 2005. I love talking with my patients about their day and getting to know them.

I moved here from California and I have been here since 2002. I enjoy spending time with my husband, our family, and our beautiful little girl named Avah Ann. My hobbies include shopping, going to the movies, and last but not least, going to Vegas, even though I cannot get there as much as I would like.

I am married, and I have two children and two grandchildren. I enjoy spending time at home, and doing DIY projects. In the summertime you can find me hanging around our pool. I look forward to working with you!
