Hi my name is Cari Oteo and I am the office manager here at TPD Smiles. I have been taking care of teeth since 2009! The things I truly enjoy most about my time spent in the office is taking care of our patients and watching their smiles transform into awesomeness. I am married to my wonderful husband, Andrew, and am a mother to my daughter Quinn and bonus daughter Ana. There are two facts people need to know about me; one is that I LOVE FOOD!…..I am a connoisseur of all things edible, particularly donuts and pizza, but I am always searching for new and interesting foods/cuisines. If you have any tasty recommendations, please pass them along! The second would be that if I ever disappeared you can find me on the beach with a good book, good company, and a cold drink.

Hey friends, I’m Annissa Foutz, and I’m the Treatment Coordinator here at TPDSmiles. I have been helping families get started on their orthodontic journey for nearly 15 years. I truly love helping others and have a passion for people. Besides changing lives…one smile at a time… I love hearing all the stories my patients share with me during their consultations. We can learn so much from others by just listening. I have a knack for remembering little details in others lives and always find something remarkable and relatable with everyone I meet. I am married to the love of my life, Ryan, and together we share 5 children, 3 girls and 2 boys. For the past 21 years and counting you will find me on a side-line or in the audience cheering my children on to the potential they were created to be. I am an avid reader and can be found reading 2-3 books at once. I love working outside in my yard, and good workout, a challenge in anything and great conversation. I can’t wait to meet you and look forward to helping you start your Orthodontic journey!

I am Angelica Gates and I have been mastering the world of teeth for 11 years. I am the mother to 4 talented boys, they are all very active in soccer, football and wrestling, which means I am one busy momma. I love family time and anything that has to do with celebrating the people in my life. I enjoy planning birthday parties, anniversaries and even just small get togethers for everyone to gather and make memories. I enjoy anything my dad cooks, he is the king of the grill and makes amazing fajitas. On the weekends and even during the week we spend most of our time out on the soccer field watching games, but from time to time I like to pretend that I am at the beach instead.
Hello, my name is Casey and I have worked in the dental field for 9 years and counting! Orthodontics is so much fun, my favorite part about working on improving smiles is not only getting to see the results but getting to know all my patients. I really enjoy learning about everyone and hopefully make everyone feel like family when they are here. When I am not in the office, I am usually spending time with my husband, our daughter Kennedy and our dog Nola, we enjoy just being together and finding fun little adventures to go on. Our most recent adventure resulted in us now having a crawfish as a pet, his name is Harry but our daughter calls him Puppy. I am a big OU fan but somehow married an OSU fan so when it’s time for collegiate sports we are truly a house divided, but that makes it loud and fun, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Hi everyone, my name is Morgan and I am one of your amazing orthodontic assistants here at TPD Smiles. I feel honored to have the privilege of watching your smile transform into something you are proud to show off, there is nothing more rewarding than creating a perma-grin! I am a complete and total animal lover and one of my many great qualities is my ability to site random animal facts. Of all the animals in the world I am partial to my baby Gypsy, she is a 3 year old dilute tortoiseshell kitty, she is so sweet and is definitely the queen of the house. My co-workers are my biggest fans and encourage my passion of cooking but it is probably because I bring all of my new cooking conquests into the office for them to try.
Hi my name is Alexis Harris, I have been in orthodontics for 3 years and enjoy every aspect of it especially meeting all our new patients and getting to make them a part of our orthodontic family one visit at a time. I truly enjoy hearing all their fun stories and learning everything about them. I am recently married to my best friend, Brent, and we have 2 fur babies, Coca and Copper, who keep us active with all their energy and melt our hearts with all their snuggles. When I am not at helping my patients achieve a beautiful smile, I am spending quality time with my family, riding four wheelers and eating A LOT of Mexican food! My favorite place to be besides with my family would have to be at the beach or really having some fun out in the mud on our four
Hi my name is Kaley Hampton and I love being an orthodontic assistant! Ever since I started dental assisting school I knew I just had a passion for orthodontics ,my favorite part would have to be being able to be a part of someone’s smile transformation and going on that journey with them, you really can’t explain the joy you get to experience when someone gets their braces off and sees their new smile for the first time, it’s magical. I share my life with my amazing boyfriend and our 3 fur babies, Boo, Max, and Karma. I spend my spare time with family and friends, we love doing everything outdoors from hanging out on the beach to fishing in Alaska!
