Meet the Team

Maria Cristina

Office Manager

I am the person who greet and serves our new patients and guide them to check in. I will check their forms and bring them back to Consultation room. It’s my job to make sure you’re made to feel welcome and comfortable while here, so please let me know if there’s anything I can do to help you. 

I will also assist you in figuring-out the financial aspects of your orthodontic care, first by reviewing the proposed treatment plan and then finding payment arrangements that will work with your budget.

I will be encharged of your insurance processing. Also I will be handling the billings, collectings and bookeeping duties.

My husband Orlando and I have three beautiful daughters and a lovely dog . Spending time with my family is always my preference when I’m not here at the office. I’m also love crafts projects and love working in our backyard.

Nancy Machado

Front Desk/Reception

I'll be the friendly voice you'll hear on the phone when you call our office, and I'm the smiling face that will greet you when you step through our doors. It's my job to  make sure you're welcome while here. In addition to being the receptionist, I'll schedule your appointments, verify your insurance benefits, and accept your payments.

On my days off I love to spend time with my husband, Marvin, along with with our two kids Jorge and Camila and our pug Biggie. Also I enjoy music, runs at the park, going to the beach, going out of town and scary movies..This is just a little bit about myself.

Mireya Gallegos

Senior Orthodontic Assistant

I’m the person who will help you understand the orthodontic treatment process and answer your questions about braces and treatment, explaining the different steps and what happens at each of them. I am always available to answer your questions and those from parents, too. We believe that an educated patient has a better treatment experience and becomes a better advocate for their future oral healthcare, so we’re always sharing knowledge. In addition to introducing you to orthodontics, I also change wires and take X-rays, photos, and impressions, and I provide clinical and chairside assistance, too.

I share my life with my Husband Edward and my beautiful daughters, Arianna and Eleyna. Being with them is the highlight of my day, and we always try to find time to be outside together. I’m very active and love outdoors activities. I also work-out at least three times a week.





Orthodontic Assistant

As a dental assistant my goal is to always make sure the patient is comfortable.

I work chairside with Dr. Salas to provide her with any tools she may need, or to follow her instructions when it comes to the patients care. I am trained to answer questions that a patient or parent may have, as well as take X-rays, impressions, and sterilization of our instruments. We work together as a team to provide the best dental care possible.

At home I like to spend my time with my husband Ruben and our daughters Natalie and Abigail. I enjoy watching my daughters in their various activities. As a family we are avid sports fans as well as movie watchers.
