Office Manager, Treatment Coordinator, and Orthodontic Assistant

I enjoy meeting new people in the community I live in. People come to us because we provide the best care and create the best smiles, all in a friendly environment. I meet with patients and their parents at their new-patient exam. I explain orthodontic treatment and answer questions. I also review financials and payment options.

My husband and I have been married for more than 20 years. We have two daughters who are both dancers. Our family enjoys watching football and baseball.

Patient and Insurance Coordinator

I enjoy meeting new people, learning about their lives, and helping them during visits. It’s so much fun to watch a patient get the beautiful smile they’ve always wanted! I welcome patients, check them in, and check them out when they’re done. I also verify insurance, help patients understand their coverage, and submit claims on their behalf.

I’m happily married and spend a lot of my time with our adult children and many grandchildren. I take pride in my gardening and enjoy serving through my church. I’m involved in a meal team that provides meals for the needy and those who are shut in and unable to attend church.

our team

Office Manager

I love watching each patient grow, change, and become more confident as the teeth straighten. It’s an amazing process and I get to see it every day! I manage our Magnolia office and handle a lot of tasks. In addition to overseeing the day-to-day aspects of running things, I also coordinate treatment. I’m also our insurance coordinator, and provide chairside assistance, too.

Born and raised in Houston, I’ve lived in this area for more than 15 years. My husband Al and I have been happily married for almost 30 years. We have two children, both now in college. I love to spend my days off with my family or in the sunshine, by the water.

Patient Coordinator

I am so excited to be a member of the Mouritsen Orthodontics team! I’ve spent 15 years of my career working in orthodontics, so I have a lot of experience when it comes to helping patients get the care they need. My role here includes scheduling appointments, processing payments, and answering any questions our patients may have. I believe that everyone here is very committed to our patients and wants them to have the very best treatment possible.

I have been married for 40 years. I have three children and their spouses, who have given me six grandchildren with whom I love to spend time. I also enjoy restoring old furniture, camping, and fishing with my husband.

Orthodontic Assistant

I enjoy working with such a great staff here at Mouritsen Orthodontics. Everyone is a lot of fun to be around. My job entails assisting the doctors with patients, taking X-rays, and sterilizing instruments at our Spring office location. I have been in the dental field since 2007 and I absolutely love helping patients get the smile they have always wanted.

Outside of work, I love spending time with my son and family.

Orthodontic Assistant

I love being there the moment we remove a patient’s braces. I’m the first one to see those amazing, perfect new smiles! It’s a magical moment and I’m so happy for our patients: they’re going to love their smile for the rest of their life. I assist the doctor during various procedures. I make sure he has everything he needs, while talking to our patient.

Outside of work, I’m all about family and sports. My two boys keep me active and we love family vacations!



our team

Orthodontic Assistant

I enjoy working with and building friendships with our patients. It’s incredible to see them become happier as a result of their new smile. I assist the doctor with orthodontic procedures, including placing braces and adjustments. I also teach patients how to care for their appliances and braces. In addition, I sterilize instruments and take X-rays and impressions.

I’m happily married and have two children, as well as a young grandson. I love spending time with my family and traveling. We spend a lot of time at our son’s baseball games.

Orthodontic Assistant

I have worked in orthodontics since 2004, to assist with placing, adjusting, and removing our patients’ braces. I enjoy knowing that I play a part in our patients’ smile transformations. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the smiles on our patients’ faces when treatment is over and they love their smile.

My husband and I have two kids and two dogs: a Beagle and a Golden Retriever. I enjoy spending my free time with my family and traveling.
