Financial Coordinator / Lab Technician

I am responsible for overseeing all aspects and operations of the office, and ensuring each day runs smoothly and according to the schedule. I began working here in 1997, and it has been my pleasure to help keep so many smiles straight! I appreciate having the opportunity to improve people’s smiles and boost their confidence. Not only is Dr. D’Ascoli awesome at what he does, but there is never a limit on what we can learn!


Office Manager / Treatment Coordinator

I get all the records ready for our patients’ initial consultation with Dr. D’Ascoli. As the treatment coordinator, I work closely with Dr. D’Ascoli to present the recommended treatment plans and help each patient understand what is being recommended and what payment options are available. I enjoy meeting the new patients and making them feel comfortable in the office. We have a lot of fun joking around with all the patients and getting them to laugh and enjoy their time with us. I have been here for 18 years and I still enjoy arriving at work every day!

I’m happily married and have four dogs. I enjoy hiking the hills behind my house with my mutts, boating with my husband in our pontoon, planting flowers, and taking care of my large yard.


Lead Clinical Supervisor

I assist Dr. D’Ascoli with orthodontic procedures. More importantly, I make sure each patient feels comfortable, safe, and confident in the care they receive. My favorite part of my job is to see the confidence our patients gain after their teeth start to move into a beautiful smile. I learn new things every day and grow as an orthodontic assistant. I love working with the doctor because we are a great team and we create beautiful smiles together!

I grew up in Genoa, NV. I married the love of my life in 2012, and had my first baby 2014. I am so happy in our first years as husband and wife with our son Aaron. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy crafting and spending time with friends and family.


Orthodontic Assistant

I’m a Orthodontic Assistant. I am the one who brings patients back and assist Dr. D’Ascoli with procedures. I enjoy helping patients gain confidence in their smile and I like doing it in the environment with the Doc and my team.

I grew up in Douglas County. I enjoy being outdoors whenever possible. I love lifting weights and Crossfit.


Scheduling Coordinator

As the scheduling coordinator, she maintains many aspects of our practice from the front desk to other logistics. She comes to us with 11 years of experience in an orthodontic practice. She enjoys the transformation she sees in our patients which makes her the most happy.

In her spare time, she helps her family business in Reno, raising 3 kids, and keeps up with her 2 German Shephards. Lisa has just recently became a grandmother for the first time.


Orthodontic Assistant


Lori recently relocated to Northern Nevada and joins our team with 27 years of experience as an orthodontic assistant from California. She has stayed in the orthodontic field as she enjoys being hands on with patients as well as building a relationship while they are in treatment.

She enjoys spending time with her 2 dogs and her family in Northern Nevada.


Marketing Executive

I’m the marketing executive for the practice. Prior to the orthodontic field, I worked in social services in California and did marketing for a financial software firm in Zephyr Cove. I am excited to work with our diverse team which is humorous, down to earth, and has a passion for our patients for the best treatment outcome.

I enjoy playing roller derby, snowboarding, hiking, and traveling. When there is more than 24 hours in a day, I like to help out on the Ranch to get our Goldendoodle to herd sheep, be a better cook, snowshoe, write letters, and explore in all modes of transportation.

Bucky Bronco


Bucky Bronco is our mascot and team member. He visits schools and participates in community parades. His favorite parade is Carson Valley Days. Bucky makes special appearances and helps teach about oral health to the public. He can be found grazing in the pasture and galloping in the Carson Valley with his herd. He is Dr. D’Ascoli’s favorite companion. Bucky is in treatment with braces getting his overbite corrected. Come give him a big hug the next time you see Bucky in your neighborhood!
