I have been married to my husband Charles for 23 years. We have a daughter Kellie who is 20 and a son Caleb who is 17. And Recently I gained a new son in law Jacob Hatcher. I have been part of the Crowder team as an Orthodontic Assistant for almost 3 years now and they have been a very rewarding 3 years. I love seeing the patients from day to day and watching their progress. My favorite part is seeing their before and after photos. I love talking with each patient and hearing whats going on in their lives. It gives me an opportunity to encourage them in any way that I can and to be able to let them know that on their bad days that tomorrows a whole new day to try again. Dr Crowders vision is that we are "Creating More than just smiles" and I believe that Our team has captured that vision. It is both a blessing and a honor to be a part of the Crowder team and I can't wait to see you there.

Hi there! As an orthodontic assistant, I assist Dr. Crowder with placing braces and removing them. I am also responsible for adjustments, hygiene instruction, sterilization and lab work. My favorite part of the job is seeing patients gain confidence as they move through the process of having their teeth straightened. When I am not in the office, I enjoy painting, photography and surfing PInterest. I live in Ozark with my wonderful husband of 21 years, Chris, and our two children, Taylor and Connor. I love the end results of orthodontics and the confidence it gives our patients. Seeing their smiles when the braces come off is priceless!
