Administrative Staff


Hi, I am a treatment coordinator and registered dental assistant. I speak with our new patients and make sure all their needs are met. I handle contracts, treatment planning, and Invisalign® treatments. I love the opportunity to work with the community in making their smiles beautiful! I have made many new friends and acquaintances working here and have enjoyed all my many years here!

My family includes my daughter Shelby, and my son Dillon. I enjoy my kids’ active sports schedule and stay very busy being their biggest fan!


Hello there, it's nice to meet you! I am a receptionist and insurance coordinator in our office. I greet our patients with a smile, schedule their appointments, and bill insurance companies. I also help our patients make the most of their insurance coverage, and so they get what they paid for! I love my job because I’m such a social person, and I get paid to chat and make new friends!

I am married to John K. Pease, Jr. We have two sons named Robert and Tim. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy playing in my yard, reading, and any activity with my family!


Hello, I work here as a front desk receptionist and appointment coordinator. I answer phones, make appointments, and greet patients as they walk in the door! I am bilingual, and that comes in very handy with some of our patients. My favorite part of my job is working with this great team and the interaction I have with our patients. I am friendly to everyone and love my job!

I am married to Jesse, and we have two great kids named Arlen and Arely. We also have a boxer named Memo!

Hi there! I am a registered dental assistant. I am bilingual, very outgoing, and love to have social interaction with my patients! I am always learning something new, and love our talented team here. The office is welcoming, efficient, and friendly. I think we are the best orthodontic office in town!

When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my husband Nicco and our two sons, Diego and Jairo. I also enjoy running and cooking. I even do Mexican cooking lessons at my home for friends and staff members, because everyone loves my cooking!


Hi, I am a registered dental assistant, and have been working here since 2005. I help Dr. Hood give our patients the best, most comfortable dental services available. I love the friendly atmosphere and make every appointment fun and positive for our patients! Dr. Hood is great to work with because he is very giving and considerate of patients and staff.

When I’m not at work, I love spending quality time with my husband Loren and my two kids, Trinity and Devon. I also enjoy being outdoors camping and hunting.


Hi! My name is Shanon. I am a registered dental assistant and have been in the dental field since 2001. I enjoy meeting new patients and helping them on their journey to a perfect smile. I am proud to be a part of this very professional team full of amazing people.

On my time off, I enjoy spending time with my family and Johnny, my lovely boyfriend since 2010. We have four pets that we love and care for: Rufus, our silly red lab mix; Molly, our feisty tortoiseshell kitty; and Sandy and Zuko, our society finches with their babies, Mara and Hute. I love my little family.


Hi there! I’m Sheylene, but everyone calls me Shey. I have been an RDA since 2008 and have worked in orthodontics since 2010. Dr. Hood did my braces when I was younger and I have wanted to work in his office since then. I am so lucky to be a part of his Dream Team!

When I’m not in the office, I enjoy snowboarding, being outside hiking, running, and playing with my lab, Lola.
