Meet the Team

We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.


Financial and Treatment Coordinator

I really love getting to know our patients and learning what interests them. The most rewarding part of my job, though, is seeing the positive impact we have when someone sees their new smile for the first time. I welcome our new patients and families to the practice. I’m with them through their initial exam, and then review the treatment plan and answer their questions. I also assist with their insurance paperwork and make financial arrangements, too.

My amazing husband and I have been married more than 30 years. We have three grown children, one grandchild, and another on the way. We love watching our grandson play sports.


Scheduling and Treatment Coordinator

I love watching our existing patients’ smiles grow bigger and brighter as they move through treatment. I find welcoming new patients into our loving practice family to be just as rewarding. It’s a joy to see each person become more confident and outgoing, comfortable in their appearance. I schedule appointments, always finding the perfect time that works with patients’ busy lives. I also take new patient phone calls and verify insurance benefits.

I was born and raised in San Antonio, and love our Spurs. In my spare time I love being with my husband and our two boys. My family is the light of my life and we enjoy our time outdoors.


Chairside Assistant

I love watching a person’s teeth gradually move into correct position and witnessing a patient’s excitement as they see their smile develop. The best moment is seeing that patient’s joy when their braces are removed and they see their beautiful new smile. It never gets old. I provide chairside assistance to Dr. Dr. Merritt as he cares for our patients. I make sure he has everything he needs and am a second pair of hands for him. At the same time, I keep our patient updated.

Originally from Harlingen, I’ve lived in San Antonio for more than 15 years. I moved here with my two young sons, who are now young men and students at UTSA. I’m family oriented and have a young daughter. Watching her experience new things is the highlight of my day.


Chairside Assistant

I love seeing the joy and excitement on a person’s face when their braces are removed. The moment they see the transformation of their smile is priceless. They can’t stop laughing and smiling, and we’re celebrating with them. Giving great people smiles for life is the best part of my work. I assist Dr. Merritt chairside during various orthodontic procedures. I support him while telling our patient what we’re doing and making sure they’re comfortable.

When I’m not working, I enjoy hiking, reading, watching movies, and trying new and exotic foods with my boyfriend. I love spending time with my family and all my nieces and nephews.
