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!
My name is Krissy Bringus and I joined Kansas City Braces in February of 2019. The most rewarding part of being an orthodontic assistant is getting to know our patients and being there the day the braces come off. I love to see people smile! We strive to make every appointment fun and my co workers are like family. I couldn’t ask for better doctors to work for than Dr. Dave and Dr. Jared. When I’m not at work I’m at home watching stand up comedies and spending time with my daughter, husband, and fur babies!

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.

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!
