I love meeting patients and families who are new to our office and making sure they feel welcome. We serve an amazing community, helping people develop healthy, beautiful smiles that change their lives. I work throughout the office, wherever I’m needed. I’m here to help schedule visits and review financial arrangements. I’m proud of our team, the work we do, and how much we care about the wellbeing and happiness of our patients.
Dr. Casaus and I have been happily married since 2008. We met in 1994, while attending St. Pius X High School. We have two beautiful children, Elyse and David. I enjoy all things outdoors, including fly-fishing, hunting, camping, hiking, and backpacking. I love music and play the fiddle and mandolin in a local band, The Saltine Ramblers.
I have great passion for my work as an orthodontic assistant. I love helping my patients achieve a smile that will boost their confidence, and I especially love seeing them share that beautiful smile with others! I help Dr. Casaus with all aspects of orthodontics, from initial records to retainers and everything in between. My favorite procedure is assisting in placing braces. I also really enjoy encouraging my patients to have the best possible brushing and flossing habits.
I was born in Santa Fe and grew up in Albuquerque. My husband and I have one daughter, Sophia. We enjoy watching movies, camping, and fishing. We also love spending time with our two dogs Ruby and JoJo, our two cats River and Jax, and our bearded dragon Eddy.
I love being part of creating beautiful smiles, one patient at a time. Dr. Casaus is a gentle, attentive orthodontist. She and our team members want you to finish treatment with an incredible smile! I like taking initial records and getting to know our patients as they begin treatment. It’s amazing to watch each person change and grow along with their new smiles. The before and after treatment transformations are incredible and I’m so happy for my patients. They’ve made a big effort and now have a smile they will love for the rest of their life with retainers being worn.
My children and I love traveling back to my parent’s house in Arizona whenever we get the chance to get away. We love soaking up the sun, whether we’re fishing, hiking, or playing sports. I help our community by encouraging others to save the planet with me: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
There is something incredibly fulfilling about being part of our patients’ lives during this exciting phase of orthodontic treatment. Each day, I get to hang out with such fun people and get to know them a little better after each visit. I love seeing the dramatic change from when a patient starts treatment to when they finish. They are so happy with their smiles, and it reflects in their confidence, too!
After 33 years in the dental field, I can say with confidence that Dr. Casaus is the best boss I’ve ever had! I’m so happy to be part of such a talented, hardworking, and fun team!
I live in the North Valley with my husband Shane. We have two dogs, Rex and Remy, who keep us quite busy. They love our daily walks along the river trails near our home. Our passion is traveling the world. We love meeting new people and learning about their cultures and traditions!
