MEET OUR AMAZING SMILE TEAM!
Hello! My name is Maria! I’m the office manager here at KC Braces and Kids. I started my career in orthodontics as a clinical assistant in 2007. I am also bilingual and interpret for Spanish speaking patients. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
I’m Laura!-I absolutely love my job and my favorite part of it all is to see a transformation from start to finish. I enjoy really getting to know our patients and working alongside the most knowledgeable doctors and staff around. I have over a decade of experience in Orthodontics, general/pediatric dentistry, and instructing future assistants. I’m a big homebody that gives all my love to my 2 cute kids, husband, pug, friends, and dessert!
Hi my name is Amy, I was born and raised in Richmond MO. I then moved to the Liberty area in 2000 when I started my career in orthodontics. I love my job and love making beautiful smiles! Outside of the office, my two children Parker and Hope keep me busy with all of their sport activities. I love being a mother and a wife. To me my family is the greatest treasure in life!
Hello my name is Leslie. I like to go by Lil Leslie. I have worked for KC Braces and Kids since November 2018. I love my job and everyday is a great day. I love to greet each and every patient
Hello! My name is Sonlla (pronounced Sonya). I was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri and have no plans of moving anytime soon! I seriously love my city, but I LOVE to travel when the limits allow. I have been with KC Braces and Kids since Oct. 2019 and it was the best move for me. I truly love my job and the whole team. I am married with 3 children and 1 pup, whom all keep me very busy. All 3 of my kids are active in sports and awesome basketball players. When I have free time, which normally is in the early mornings, you will find me at the gym. I love staying active and living a healthy lifestyle. I find fitness to be fun, keep me sane, and just a part of my normal routine.
Hi, I’m Payden! I was born and raised in Kearney but lived in Dallas, Texas for 3 years. KC has always had my heart and I am here to stay! I have been in the dental field since 2010 and graduated dental hygiene school in 2014. Always having a passion for dental health, i knew I wanted to be a hygienist since I was 16. I love getting to know my patients and helping improve their oral/overall health. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and chasing our toddler boy/girl twins. I look forward to getting to know you and your family!
