Appointment Coordinator and Receptionist
I enjoy visiting and building relationships with our patients and parents. I see everyone when I check them in and love watching how everyone changes as they develop a great smile! This office feels like family: Dr. Searcy and our team work hard to support our patients during treatment and genuinely care about their comfort and happiness.
I greet patients, answer the phone, schedule visits, file charts, and try to keep everything moving smoothly.
Outside the office, I treasure time with my two daughters, Claudia and Chloe, my husband Kyle, and his two children, Cameron and Amanda. I’m a certified personal fitness trainer and love a great workout, as well as tending my flower beds.
I love seeing the smiles we create and how each person becomes more confident and happier as a result of treatment! Dr. Searcy is kind and has built a happy, supportive practice where we all focus on helping our patients have the best orthodontic experience.
I handle our accounts receivable and payable, as well as payroll. I also work with patients and parents to develop financial contracts that fit with their budget.
When I’m not working, I love spending time with my three children and three wonderful grandchildren. I also enjoy reading.
Treatment Coordinator and Office Manager
I like watching the personal changes our patients go through as they accomplish their best smile and knowing we’ve made a difference in their lives. Dr. Searcy treats every patient as he would a family member. He is personable and trustworthy, and so are our team members!
I work with new patients at their initial exams, review treatment plans, and present financial options to patients and families. I also assist in the operatory and laboratory when needed and manage our staff and patient relations, too.
Outside of work, I spend much of my time with my family. My husband Richard and I have been married for almost 40 years. We are blessed with three daughters, two wonderful sons-in-law, and two beautiful grandbabies. I love sports — football, baseball, and volleyball — and I played, coached, and umpired softball for many years.
I enjoy promoting Searcy Orthodontics in our community: introducing people to our practice and how we change lives by changing smiles! Dr. Searcy genuinely cares about his patients’ comfort and happiness and our team reflects that compassion.
I handle all aspects of marketing, including postings on the Searcy Orthodontics Facebook page. I also helped develop the new office logo, signage, and TV promos, and I coordinate all outreach to referring dentists.
When I’m not in the office, I enjoy playing tennis, bicycling, attending University of Louisiana at Lafayette sporting events, and being with family. My husband Steve and I have been married for 30 years and have one son. I love supporting our community and have served on the University of Louisiana at Lafayette alumni board, as well as the Our Lady of Fatima alumni council, Our Lady of Fatima church council, and Krewe of Bonaparte board of directors. I presently serve as a lector and eucharistic minister.
I love that each day at Searcy Orthodontics brings new opportunities to make smiles more beautiful and to learn new things. Ours is a warm, family-oriented office, with Dr. Searcy and our team supporting each other as we help our patients achieve their most wonderful smiles!
I prepare charts for patient consultations. I also take photos, impressions, and X-rays, and trace cephalometric X-rays for Dr. Searcy to use in diagnosis and treatment planning.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, and l Iike attending LSU sporting events.
I enjoy getting to know our patients and seeing how each person changes during treatment. Those finished smiles are amazing! Being part of Searcy Orthodontics means working with a team and doctor who improve lives. Nothing could be better!
I work in our onsite lab, where I pour impressions to models, trim and mount models for consultations, and prepare models for retainers and removable nightguards.
When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my wonderful husband Greg, two beautiful children, Melissa and Josh, and two awesome grandsons. I also like traveling, shopping, and lots of family fun times.
I like talking with and getting to know patients during their orthodontic treatment. It’s good to build friendships while helping people make lasting, positive changes in their lives! Searcy Orthodontics is my family-away-from-home. We all care about each other and our patients.
I work in the clinic: assisting Dr. Searcy with different procedures, adjusting braces, and educating patients about home care. I also handle ordering for the office.
My free time is spent with my family and friends. I love to listen to music, travel, and see the great outdoors. I also enjoy crafts.
I like learning something new every day, as we work to give our patients their most beautiful smiles! It’s enjoyable to watch patients grow into themselves and then come back to Searcy Orthodontics as adults, when they bring in their children and grandchildren. Our office is a close family that cares about our patients.
I provide chairside assistance to Dr. Searcy in the operatory, offer patient care, and teach patients about home care.
My time off is family centered: I’ve been married for almost 40 years and have a son and daughter, as well as four delightful grandchildren. I love spending lots of time with my grandchildren, and attending all of their sporting events and school functions. I also love working in my yard, picking flowers with my granddaughter, and playing with my Yorkie puppy, Jiminy Cricket.
I began working in dentistry in 1992 and brought my many years of experience to Searcy Orthodontics in 2012. Getting to know our patients and building relationships with them while they undergo orthodontic treatment is the best! Each person is unique and makes each day special.
I work in our clinical area, to assist Dr. Searcy with patients and help out whenever I’m needed. As a team, we love to laugh and genuinely enjoy ourselves in the office.
I have been married to my husband Barry for 20 years and we have two boys. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
