Office Manager / Treatment Coordinator (RDA)
It is my duty to manage the daily care of the practice, patients, and employees. I also schedule new patient examinations, go over treatment fees, and make financial arrangements. My favorite part of my position in the practice is working out ways to help make orthodontics affordable for each individual budget. I love having the opportunity to make a beautiful smile a possibility for everyone. I admire Dr. Collazo and respect his knowledge and professionalism. I love how he comes into the office everyday with a BIG smile on his face. You can see the joy gets through each patient he treats. He goes above and beyond in everything he does for his patients and staff. I work for the best orthodontist in the country and his works speaks volumes! Dr. Collazo has such a passion for his work and gives 100% of himself to each patient. He goes above and beyond to make sure that all of his patients are happy with their smile! He strives for a perfect smile and a perfect bite and doesn't settle for anything less.
I have a wonderful husband, Chad and 2 great dogs, Rocky and Drake. In my spare time I enjoy shopping, spending time with friends and family, going out on our boat, doing photography and crafts.
I oversee the broad aspects of our orthodontic offices. As an accountant, I manage the accounting needs of the practice, the payroll and the accounts payable. I also enjoy creating fun ways of marketing the practice and giving back to our wonderful patients and referrals. I love our patients and the difference we make in their lives. I love to work on team building by organizing events outside of the office for our terrific staff. I have a great appreciation for the difference the little things can make in a successful practice.
Dr. Collazo is a wonderful orthodontist and I love working for the BEST orthodontist in the country! We have two sons, Taylor and Austin, who continuously amaze us with their accomplishments and successes in life. My favorite hobbies are spending time with my family, exercising and doing creative projects.

I meet and greet all our patients as soon as they walk into our office. I am responsible for taking care of all their scheduling needs and making sure they feel comfortable and relaxed in our office.

Dr. Collazo is very passionate about his work and it shows every day and with every smile he creates!
