Christi’s journey to Stonebridge Orthodontics began about 10 years ago when her large crew of kiddo’s (7 to be exact) began their smile transformations. After dozens….and dozens……and dozens of visits to Wise Orthodontics over the years, Christi finally decided to join the family herself when Dr. Wise opened the practice in McKinney. Christi began as a Personal Orthodontic Assistant, and is now a Treatment Coordinator. Her warmth and compassion for family is abundant. She will make you smile!
If you can’t find Christi at work you can rest assure she can be found at one of her many kids’ sporting events. Not only is she a soccer mom but also a volleyball, softball, cheerleading, football and dance mom! In their limited free time the family loves to get away to Broken Bow or Colorado for some camping, fishing, and hiking adventures. Needless to say this family of mountain men, and fashion guru girls is the real life epitome of wilderness meets Beverly Hills. Luckily for them, no matter how dirty they get being dragged through the wilderness, thanks to Christi and the great team at Stonebridge Orthodontics, they’ll always have their beautiful smiles!

Carley has recently joined the Wise/Stonebridge Orthodontic family, and fit in perfectly. Upon graduating from dental assisting school in May 2014, only a few short months later she and her family found themselves moving all the way down to McKinney, Texas from the Twin Cities, the Land of 10,000 Lakes, or as it’s most known, Minnesota! Carley lives with her parents, a sister and a loving, snuggly 9-year young yellow lab. The family has more recently built a house in Celina, and loving every minute of it. When she’s not at work, Carley loves to be outside. Although she loves to snowboard in the winter, it’s tough to do that in Texas! She fills in that time by dedicating 3 nights a week to playing slow pitch softball year-round. She has also taken up activities such as disc golf, and soccer. When Carley isn’t physically active, you can either find her shopping, eating out with friends and family, or just laying on the couch watching some Netflix.
Since the 7th grade, I absolutely fell in love with the field of dentistry, and even wanted to become an orthodontist myself! I had taken 1/3 of my dental assisting classes at a community college as a senior in high school, which then leads me to finish and graduate the following year. When you see me, you will be able to experience how “Minnesota Nice” feels, and I even promise to top it off with the Minnesota accent. I feel completely blessed to have found such an amazing work family; sometimes I feel as though they found me! Every day I look forward to seeing all of our awesome patients, as well as working with Dr. Wise, Dr. Lee and all the rest of the amazing team in our office, every day is a new kind of fun!

Claire is beyond grateful to Dr. Wise, Dr. Lee, and the whole work family for taking her in and making her feel like she belongs. When Claire is not working you can find her cooking in the kitchen, or outside grilling a mean steak. She also loves spending time with her family, taking walks around her neighborhood, writing, and watching a good classic musical! Claire received wonderful personal care when she was a patient, and she strives to make sure each patient has the same care.
