Our office veteran, working with Dr. Mai since 2007, Kristy helps facilitate everything patients need when they are ready to start their journey to a beautiful smile. From taking diagnostic X-rays and digital pictures to discussing financial options, and of course making sure our patients feel comfortable with and understand their treatment plan. Kristy is also a member of our marketing team and helps with creating different marketing ideas for our local schools and community. Kristy loves getting to know all of our patients as well as their families and enjoys when our younger patient's parents decide to improve their smile as an adult and to have treatment too. Whether our adult patients have had just some slight shifting or have never had braces before, the results are amazing and so rewarding!
A native of Austin, Kristy resides in Kyle with her husband Bryan and their two children, Adyson and Brody, along with their Yorkie named Vince. Together they enjoy watching Longhorns football, going to the lake, and hanging out with friends and family.

Karrie has three daughters, four grandkids and enjoys spending time with family and traveling.
