Karen

Front Desk

I love meeting our new patients and families, welcoming them to Sam Frank Orthodontics, and watching their smiles transform. It’s amazing to witness the difference a healthy, beautiful smile makes in a person’s life. They become so much more outgoing and confident! By the end of treatment, they’re a new person, and we’re thrilled for them.

I started the practice with Dr. Frank, my husband, in 1985, and then hired someone to take my place. I then taught pre-school and eventually became the Director there. When my daughter, Jessica, had her first child, I returned to our front desk.

It’s my voice people here when they call the office. I also greet patients, check them in, and update their records. I also schedule appointments, finding times that work with patients’ and families’ busy lives.

Orthodontic Clinical Assistant

I love seeing how a beautiful, functional smile changes a person’s life. Every day I watch people’s self-esteem grow and see them become more comfortable in their appearance. By the time they finish, they have a smile they love and that fills them with confidence. I started working at Sam Frank Orthodontics in 2006, when I graduated from Starr Dental Assistant School. I love the people I’ve met and the friendships I’ve made.

I assist Dr. Frank during clinical procedures, supporting him and our patient. I also educate patients and parents about orthodontic care and home oral hygiene. Additionally, I’m the practice X-ray technician, our operatory and supply manager, and help at the front desk.

I have two children. Cody, my son, is at the Air Traffic Control Academy in Oklahoma City, studying to become an Air Traffic Controller. Rachael, my daughter, is still at home. Cody and I were both treated by Dr. Frank and now he’s treating Rachael! I’m a Girl Scout leader and an auxiliary member of the Oakdale Fire Department. I love time with family and friends, community events, and reading.
