Christina Christina

Dental Assistant

I’ve always had a passion for helping people, and now I use that passion to help our patients attain beautiful smiles! As one of our orthodontic assistants, I get to know our patients, make them feel comfortable, and assist Dr. Parker in giving them beautiful smiles. It is such a joy when patients are excited to start their treatment and I get to watch the transformation of their smiles. 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 sons who keep me busy going outdoors and doing other activities. Most of our time is spent with family. I love traveling for fun adventures, fishing, and cooking. Email:


Heatherlyn Heatherlyn

Dental Assistant

As an assistant, I work alongside Dr. Parker with patients’ orthodontic needs, whether it’s Invisalign®, traditional braces, retainers, or simply just a checkup. I believe that happiness and confidence starts with a smile, so knowing I get to help put smiles on my patients’ faces is one of the main reasons I am so passionate about orthodontics. Dr. Parker is the sweetest, most talented, patient, humble, and compassionate individual I have ever met. To be given the opportunity to work and learn from such an individual is a blessing.

I am happily married and mother to a little girl. I am family oriented but goal driven, having achieved everything I put my mind to. I have a very positive outlook on life and live by the motto, “If you put positive out there you will get positive back.”


Girlieann Girlieann

Clinical Supervisor and Registered Dental Assistant

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 of each patient’s treatment, and what a difference a straight, beautiful smile makes in their life. I also work hard to make sure the clinic is operating on schedule. Each day is an opportunity to learn something new and challenge myself to be better. I love working with Dr. Parker and the rest of our team because they are my second family: always willing to support each other and work together.

At home, I have two beautiful growing daughters. I love spending time with family and friends, cooking, and shopping.


Beatriz Beatriz

Records Technician and Sterilization

My job requires me to work with most of our new and currents patients at the start of their orthodontic experience to update their photos and X-rays. I am also in charge of sterilizing instruments and keeping the clinical areas clean and ready for the next patients. I love getting to learn new things and work with all kinds of people. In this office, I get to do both, whether I am building a bond with a patient or getting to learn a new skill that will help me succeed in the office. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to work for someone as caring as Dr. Parker. She is kindhearted and treats both her patients and staff with love and respect.

When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time outdoors and traveling with my young daughter: pushing her to learn new skills and seek new adventures.


Carolina Carolina

Treatment Coordinator

I am the first person our patients meet at their initial consultation. I provide them with a thorough understanding of orthodontic procedures and help them get started with their orthodontic journey. I feel fortunate to be a part of our patients’ experience from beginning to end. Thanks to the excellence of Dr. Parker and our team, I am able to tell our patients confidently that we can give them the smile they’ve always dreamed of! We are wholeheartedly driven to give patients a great experience.

I am happily married with three kids, and a yorkie fur baby. My family enjoys traveling, visiting new places, and being outdoors. Email:


Jade Jade

Marketing and Scheduling Coordinator

I wear two hats in our office. The first, as a scheduling coordinator, allows me to interact with our patients to find them appointment times that fit their busy schedules. My other is as marketing coordinator. I get to organize all our marketing campaign efforts, both in the office and in the community, and spread the word about Dr. Parker’s amazing office. I also get to create fun games and contests for our patients to take part in. Whatever I’m doing, I love being able to meet such a variety of people and build relationships with our patients and their families.

Dancing is one of my true passions. Pageantry is another hobby: In 2014, I won the title of Miss Mission Beach. With that title, I was able to volunteer my time and efforts in the community. I love being outdoors and by the water. My boyfriend and my little English bulldog puppy Tank are my world!


Lacey Lacey

Financial and Treatment Coordinator

There is nothing better than satisfying our patients and putting bright, confident smiles on their faces! It melts my heart! As our financial coordinator, I take care of all our patient accounts and insurance claims. I feel very fortunate to work with people as wonderful as Dr. Parker and our team. They are like my family! Dr. Parker is hands down the best doctor I’ve worked for in my 11 years of working in the dental field. She’s gentle, kind, caring, and loves to have fun!

I am originally from northern California and moved to San Diego in 2010. I love to travel, go on long hikes, and volunteer in the community in my spare time. Email:


Antoinette Antoinette

Operations Manager

I am responsible for our accounts payable, marketing, and training. In general, I’m the “go to” person, since 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 a daughter 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! Email:
