Meet The Team

Kristyna | Office Manager

I am the office manager/ treatment coordinator here in the Susanville office. I was born and raised in Santa Maria, Ca. My husband and I moved to this area in 2008 with our 3 girls. I have worked in the medical field for over 8 years on and off and also in the Susanville school district for 3 years. I am very excited to be a part of this Dental team and this office and look forward to the new adventure ahead.

Pets: I have one crazy dog named Duke and 2 chickens

Favorite Place: The Beach, I grew up at Pismo Beach now my favorite place is any beach, especially in Mexico. Love the sounds and smells.

Era: I would have to say the 50’s. Fast cars, Rock and roll, and cool clothes.

Megan | Registered Dental Assistant

I’m Megan, and I am a Registered Dental Assistant. I have been assisting in orthodontics for 6 years, and I absolutely love my job! I was born and raised in Nampa, Idaho, with 4 Siblings. In 2006 my husband and I married right after he joined the Air Force, and we got the opportunity to move to Okinawa, Japan for 3 years, which was an incredible experience. We moved back to the states in 2009 and made Susanville our permanent home. I have 2 sons, Teagan and Zeke, who keep my life interesting at all times. I love to run, kayak, and camp with my family.
