Kris is the definition of commitment. As one of our longest-standing employees at Sawyer Creek, you can bet that she has a wealth of knowledge to share with our patients.

She is a jack-of-all-trades here and flexes her time between orthodontic assisting, doing the ordering and inventory, taking x-rays and photos on patients and helping in the lab. We are so lucky to have such a devoted person on our team!
