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.
I have a 10 year medical background in different fields and was curious about orthodontics. I assist Dr. D’Ascoli along with my team as an orthodontic assistant. I enjoy seeing patients finish their treatment on deband day.
I have two daughters and enjoy being active with team sports. I have been playing volleyball and softball as a coach and teammate. You can see me on a court or field in my spare time.
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.
As the Treatment Coordinator, I work alongside Dr. D’Ascoli and communicate the most effective treatment plan and financing options available to our new patients. I have always been fascinated with orthodontics; in fact, I even did my senior project on orthodontic treatment! I interned with Dr. D’Ascoli and when I graduated high school, I officially joined the team. I am furthering my experience and education by going to school to become a dental hygienist. I love to have fun, and I get to do that every day with our patients and my coworkers.
When I’m not in the office, I love the outdoors and spending time with my family and friends.
I am the Scheduling Coordinator and Treatment Coordinator. In addition to juggling our front office operations, I ensure that I give a positive first impression as being friendly, knowledgeable, and a concerned and caring person to our patients. When I am the Treatment Coordinator, I give a preliminary consultation to our new patients of their treatment plan options with Dr. D’Ascoli.
I was introduced to the dental field through the Dental Assistant program and found that I enjoy working the front office and engaging with our patients. I have experience working for a corporate dental practice but prefer the personalized care of a private practice to create relationships with our patients and their families. Although I have recently came aboard with Dr. D’Ascoli’s team, I am grateful for the opportunity and believe I will grow in this field that brings beautiful smiles to our patients and strive to make a difference in the productivity of the practice.
Outside of work, I love spending time with my two beautiful daughters and enjoying the wonderful Nevada weather.
Joanna joins RaeLynn in the finance department. Joanna will explore all of your insurance options and work with you and your family on financing. She comes to us with 13 years of a finance background. Joanna is new to the orthodontics field and looks forward to getting to know all the patients and learning fun new things.
Joanna has lived in Northern Nevada for 24 years. She has two amazing children that keep her busy. When they aren’t at work or school, they are playing outside or with our animals. Joanna currently has 3 cows and just added a lamb to the farm.
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 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!
