Treatment Coordinator/Office Manager

The best part of my job is meeting new people every day. I love being able to confidently tell our patients that we can give them the smile they’ve always dreamed of! It’s great to be a part of the experience from start to finish! I’ve been in the orthodontic field for a long time, and Dr. Parker is by far the most honest, kind, generous, talented doctor I have ever had the pleasure to work for. I love being able to refer my friends and family to her with complete confidence. I am married with four beautiful children and an adorable Chihuahua named Franklin. I enjoy shopping and not camping.

Scheduling Coordinator

As our scheduling coordinator, I arrange our patients’ future visits with us, both in person and over the phone. I’ve always had a passion for helping people, and now I use that passion to help our patients attain beautiful smiles! It is such a joy when patients are excited to start their treatment and I get to watch the transformation of their smile. I’m so happy to be a part of Dr. Parker’s team. She truly cares for each and every patient and is a role model for all of us. At home, I have two awesome baby boys and a wonderful family with whom I spent a lot of time. I love cooking and trying new foods, outdoor activities, fishing, and hitting the road for fun adventures!  Email: info@drparkerortho.com

Registered Dental Assistant

I work with many of our new patients, taking their records, X-rays, and impressions. I love seeing everyone’s unique smile and watching their progress through treatment. Dr. Parker is fabulous! She genuinely cares for her patients and staff. I love that she gives back to the community, and that I can assist her with that work. I love living in San Diego and anything time spent outdoors is fun to me. I enjoy working out and cooking vegan food while spending time with my 2 dogs.

As an assistant, I love all the different things I get to do and learn every day. I enjoy being able to see the beginning and end result of each patient’s treatment, and what a difference a straight, beautiful smile makes in their life. I also appreciate the opportunity to work with Dr. Parker. She has given me the chance to improve my skills and allows me to continue growing. I feel very lucky to be one of her assistants. At home, I have two little girls and I love to spend all my time with them. I also love to cook!

Sterilization/ Records Tech

I work with many of our new patients at the start of their orthodontic experience, taking photos and X-rays to prepare for treatment planning. I also sterilize and maintain instruments and patient units to keep the back office up and running. I love learning new things, and it seems I learn something new every day here! Whether I’m hearing about a patient’s hobbies or learning a new technique, each day is different. My time outside the office is spent with my three beautiful daughters. I enjoy taking them to the beach.

There is nothing better than satisfying our patients and putting bright, healthy smiles on their faces! As our financial coordinator, I take care of all our patient accounts and insurance claims. I feel very fortunate to work with someone as wonderful as Dr. Parker. She’s humble, generous, and very kind-hearted. I am originally from northern California and moved to San Diego in 2010. I love to be outdoors, hiking, snowboarding, and at the beach. At home, I have a 14-year-old furry friend named Lucky. Email: Lacey@drparkerortho.com

Operations Manager

I am responsible for our accounts payable, marketing, and training. In general, I’m the “go to” person, as I’ve been here for almost 20 years and have worked every position in the office. I love what I do now because I have flexibility and can fill in for anyone. I like helping people and knowing that I am contributing to the practice and to our patients’ smiles. I am married and have one daughter who I love to spend time with. I volunteer most of my spare time at my daughter’s school and lead her Girl Scout troop. I also love to shop and be crafty!
