Meet the Team

Allie

Administrative Assistant

Hello and welcome to ARA Orthodontics! I know you’re going to love having Dr. Rodriguez-Abrams create your new smile: he was my orthodontist and it was a great experience! You’ll hear my voice when you call and I’ll help you schedule visits, too. I’ll be here for your consultation and am glad to answer your questions about treatment. I also assist with 3D printing, and, like Dr. Rodrigues-Abrams and Navi, I’m fully English and Spanish bilingual, so I’m available to help translate!

I stay busy when not in the office. Some of my interests include filming videos, watching movies, and listening to music. I also enjoy cooking, writing, reading, and creating art.

Front Office, Financial Coordinator, and TruDenta Dentomandibular Rehabilitation Therapist

Hi, I’m looking forward to meeting you! I’m love getting to know patients and their families during their orthodontic transformations. It’s fun to help people achieve a smile they love! You’ll meet me in the front office, handling a variety of duties, the most important being helpful to you! I am also the liaison for referring offices and handle all things related to TruDenta (ask me about it!).

My wonderful husband and best friend, Rob, and I have seven (yes, seven!) amazing kids. We are a blended family with three boys and four girls. They make us very proud and keep us busy. We love music, time with each other and friends, and cooking, entertaining, and traveling. We also love taking care of and playing with our five dogs!

Anna

Treatment Coordinator and Clinical Assistant

Hi and welcome! I enjoy meeting with and building relationships while helping to create new smiles! Seeing patients on a regular basis makes them feel like family. I especially love seeing a shy patient come out of their shell because of the confidence given by a beautiful smile! I wear many hats in the office, assisting Dr. Rodriguez-Abrams with new patient exams and coordinating treatment plans and payment arrangements. I’ll also take your diagnostic records, teach you how to care for your oral health, and provide chairside assistance during visits.

I grew up in Laton, CA and my parents still live there. I’m happily married and have a daughter, two step-children, five grandchildren, and one great-grandson! I love gardening, cooking, reading, and drag racing. I also love to travel, especially to Hawaii, the Central Coast, Lake Tahoe, and Las Vegas.

Navi

Front Desk

Hi, welcome to ARA Orthodontics! I’m looking forward to helping you develop a smile that will change your life! It’s amazing to watch a person transform during treatment and I know you’ll finish happier, healthier, and more confident. I was one of Dr. Rodriguez-Abrams’ patients and love the smile he created for me! I work in the front and back office, handling a lot of the technical aspects of our practice including 3D printing and scan editing. I’m also in charge of our sterilization and handle lab work, so all instruments are super clean and you get all your appliances and retainers on time. Along with Allie and Dr. Rodriguez-Abrams, I’m fully bilingual in Spanish and English. Don’t be shy – Que tengas un feliz dia!

I was born and raised in Fresno and am a proud mother of two young sons. My free time is spent laughing and making memories with my family.
