Office Manager and Treatment Coordinator

I enjoy helping our patients and their families get started with their orthodontic experience. It’s essential we provide a happy enviornment for our patients and families. Our team and patients are the best! I love being surrounded by people who are making a lasting change in their lives with a new smile. I make sure everything runs smoothly so the team can focus on our patients’ needs.

I have a wonderful family and have been blessed with the most loving grandchildren who are my world. My passions are dogs, traveling, and raising awareness for organ donation.

Orthodontic Assistant Supervisor

I enjoy working with our patients and getting to know each on a personal level. It’s wonderful to watch a person become more confident and grow to love their smile. I wear many hats in our Woodlands office. My main job is to assist the doctors during orthodontic procedures, while supporting our patient. I also order supplies and manage our back office staff.

My high school sweetheart and I have been married for almost 40 years. We have a daughter, who’s a dentist here in The Woodlands. We enjoy time at our lake house in Livingston, TX, with our dachshunds, Walter and Charlie.

Orthodontic Assistant

I love watching each patient’s transformation. As they see the changes in their smile, they become much happier and confident! Those finished, radiant, healthy smiles are one in a million and I love them all. I work chairside at The Woodlands office, supporting the doctor during procedures. At the same time, I’m talking with our patient about what we’re doing.

I’m happily married and have two kids. I love spending time outdoors, by the pool or just hanging out in the yard. My favorite pastime is watching my son play football.

Orthodontic Assistant

I enjoy working with our patients at The Woodlands office. Seeing a person finish treatment and being thrilled with their result never gets old! Those amazing, beautiful smiles make me smile. I assist the doctor with placing braces, appliances, and adjustments. I also take X-rays and impressions and sterilize instruments.

I have three great kids and a wonderful husband. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy working out, playing with my dogs, and being outdoors.


Orthodontic Assistant

I love working in a positive and upbeat environment with a doctor and a team who are like family to me. Having the ability to help others who require orthodontic treatment and giving patients the smile they have always dreamed of is what I enjoy the most. Taking braces off is my favorite appointments! When I am not chair side with Dr. Mardaga I am doing lab work, sterilizing instruments, taking x-rays and helping out at the front desk. Working for Dr. Mardaga has allowed me to learn something new everyday. He is a great teacher, whether it is orthodontics or an interesting fact of the day!

Outside of work I love taking my dog on walks, going to the movies, traveling, baking, doing crafts and spending time with my family.

Orthodontic Assistant

I love the look on a patient’s face when they first see their finished smile. That look of pure happiness lets me know we did a great job! I assist Dr. Mardaga with patients during their routine orthodontic visits. I also take records, including X-rays and molds for diagnostics. I also help with front office duties when needed. 

I’m a proud mother of three boys and one girl. We love being outdoors: hunting, fishing, camping, and four-wheeling. On rainy days, we watch movies and sing and dance around the house.

Sterilization/Lab Assistant

I love working here at Mardaga Orthodontics. The atmosphere is so positive and we have a team of employees that makes it feel like family. My main job here at the office is sterilizing all the instruments. When I am not sterilizing instruments, you can find me either helping out at the front desk or doing lab work. Working at Mardaga Orthodontics has given me so many opportunities and experiences. I look forward to taking these with me as I continue my pursuit in the dental field.

While working, I am also a full-time college student. I am finishing my last year at the current college I attend and will be transferring to one of the Texas' Dental Hygiene schools next fall.

When I am not studying or at work, I enjoy spending time with my family. I also enjoy running and kayaking, as well as travelling and going to the movies. I am one of four sisters and have a Cavachon dog named Charlie.
