Laura Rodriguez

As our team leader, I oversee our front desk staff, schedule appointments, answer phone calls, verify private insurances, check patients in, and consult with parents about their child’s care. I joined Dr. Mejia’s team in 2009 after joining the dental field four years earlier. The best part of working here is seeing patients come out with beautiful smiles after their braces are removed. Most of them cannot stop smiling, and neither can I! I also really appreciate how much our doctors care for all our patients. I am happily engaged to a wonderful man and I have a nine month old chocolate Labrador named Jax who I absolutely adore. In my free time I enjoy fishing and spending time with my family.

Dora Alvarado

Dental Assistant/Team Leader/Supply-Order Management
I supervise our dental assistants and order and organize all our supplies to keep the practice running smoothly. I began working at Mejia-Maidl Orthodontics in 2007 and brought with me four years of experience prior. I enjoy talking with our patients and helping them to improve their smile. Through this job, I’ve learned how to be a team-player, and of course I’ve gained a lot of experience regarding customer satisfaction. I love working with my doctors because they are not only professional, but also they have a lot of experience. Working here has given me the opportunity to learn first-hand the process a whole practice has to go through in order to succeed. I am blessed to have a loving and understanding family.

Marisol Valenzuela

Billing Coordinator
I am responsible for the financial aspects of our patients’ treatment, from processing claims to verifying insurance and entering payments. I’m also bilingual in English and Spanish. I have truly enjoyed the past three years I’ve worked here, especially getting to know all our patients. My favorite part of my job is being able to help patients and parents with any kind of questions or concerns, but the best part is getting to see patients leave our office with a nice straight smile. I love working with our doctors because they are easy to get along with, are here to help whenever we need them, and always teach us new things. At home, I love spending time with my son.
