Practice Manager – North Hills

Hello my name is Elizabeth I am the manager at the North Valley location. My journey started in this location 6 years ago, when I walked through the doors for a front desk interview, needless to say I got the position. Throughout the years I moved around the office from front desk, to dental assistant, to my current position now as the manager. 

I was born and raised in Reno, Nevada, by two lovely parents who migrated from Mexico. I am fluent in spanish. I graduated high school and went to TMCC to start the process of becoming a dental hygienist. I was fortunate enough while working at My Kids Smile to become a dental Assistant to see if I wanted to continue to pursue that career. In 2010 I met the love of my life, my husband Edgar and 9 years later welcomed our amazing son to the world, Santiago. 

My family and I love the great outdoors and enjoy camping during the summer time and snowboarding during the winter. We try to stay true to our roots and make sure we make frequent trips to Mexico and Guatemala, which my husband is from. I am proud to say because of this I am able to contribute to the Spanish speaking community. 

 The environment we have created here at My KIds Smile is nothing less than amazing, as the passion we have in serving our communities is demonstrated in what we do everyday. 


Practice Manager – Grant Drive

Hi, I am the Office Manager for My Kids Smile at our Grant location.   I have worked in the dentistry field for a little over 5 years and absolutely love working with children.   It is definitely the highlight of my day when I get to help cheer up a little one who is a little scared to be at our office.  I am a big softy who loves to cheer everyone on!!  When I am not at the office, I am hanging out with my family of 5 children and 2 dogs.  I have a Great Dane named Remi and a Boston Terrier named Brandi who I absolutely adore!!  In my spare time, you will find My husband and I country line and swing dancing in our favorite country hangout.  My favorite quote is:  You only have one life to live, so live it to your fullest!! 


Practice Manager – Warren Way

My name is Kandys. I’m from Phoenix, AZ, but was raised in the Reno/Sparks area. I have been in the dental field since 2006 and with My Kids Smile since 2014. I have witnessed the growth of My Kids Smile as we now have 5 locations and have collaborated with each location. Outside of work I enjoy the great outdoors from hiking, fishing, golfing, camping and snowboarding. I love going to concerts of any genre. I will also never turn down a vacation. My husband Stan for the most part gets to enjoy all these little life moments with me. 

My favorite quote is from Mr. Bob Ross “We don’t make mistakes, just happy little accidents”


Brand Manager – North Hills

Life at the office: I have been with My kids Smile for 10 years, in the dental field for 20.  I started as a dental assistant, moved to several positions at the front desk, transitioned to Practice Manager and now I am the Brand Manager for My Kids Smile.  I love to see all the happy kiddos that come through the office.  It is great to see the kids who started out afraid of the dentist to now love being here.  I have watched My Kids Smile grow over the years and am excited to see what’s next for our practices.

Education: I graduated high school in Fallon and went on to the Dental Assisting program at TMCC.  I have worked mostly in pedo during my career, but I also worked in general for a short while.

Life at home: I have been married to my wonderful husband for 21 years and we have raised 3 beautiful, loving kids.  When I am not hiking with my daughter, attending softball games with my oldest son, or doing ROTC activities with my youngest son you can usually find me out on the lake or cuddling with my pups.  Our family loves to go camping, boating, or just hang out together.  We have 3 adorable shih tzu pups.  2 girls and a boy which are our babies, Sugar, Pepper & Dodger. My furbabies are spoiled with toys, treats and beds all over.  They may even have a bigger wardrobe than me!!

Practice Manager – Double R 

Life at the office: We are a busy and booming office, but when we are not with kiddos we are scaring each other, laughing uncontrollably, and or having a Nerf gun war.

Education: I graduated High School in 2009, and went and got my Associates Degree in Medical Assisting through Carrington College.

Family: I am married to my highschool sweetheart, and together we have two beautiful kids, a little girl and little boy. They are our world.
