Hey neighbors! My name is Trish, and I’m your “go-to” if you need help with anything while you’re here with us at TPD Smiles! I’ve been in dentistry for almost 10 years now! You may have seen me running around Texas Pediatric Dentistry for the past 9, but now you can find me hanging out over here in the world of Orthodontics! I’m your Office Manager, and I’m here for YOU!
I’m a people person… I love meeting new people and I love socializing! If you know me, you know that I love my friends, I’m not shy, and I don’t really drink as much coffee as you think! I rarely sit still and I usually have a million things going on at once, but don’t worry- I have my sticky notes to keep me on track!
I love to travel- I’ve travelled all over the world, and I’ve even lived in Hong Kong and Singapore. Singapore should be on everyone’s bucket list- it’s like a small world of its own! I have 4 brothers and 1 sister. Most of my family lives in Florida and California, and there’s a few of us here in Texas! I’ve been here for almost 30 years!
I’ve been married for 14 years and we have 2 boys. Our youngest is a passionate travel hockey player, so you can usually find us at the rink, or traveling the country for tournaments. Our oldest is living the life of a young “20 something!” We love our animals- Jackie and LuLu- our Chihuahuas, and Maggie the cat. I hate to cook, but I love to eat! When we have free time you’ll find us at the lake, or if we’re lucky, a vacation to a Mexico or the Florida beach!
My family and friends, my team at work, and my patients, are very important to me. I’m excited to meet you, and to build a great relationship with you and your family!!

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.

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.
Hey y’all, my name is Morgan and I am one of your favorite orthodontic assistants here at TPD Smiles. Connecting with patients has been the most rewarding experience for me. By the end of treatment, I feel like I am saying goodbye to family, however, I feel honored to have the privilege of watching your smile transform into something you are proud to show off. When I am not at work, I can be seen either in the kitchen cooking something delicious, playing with all of my fur babies, or having a game night with friends and family. I also love trying new restaurants in the area and would love any suggestions.
Hi, my name is Alexis and I’ve been an orthodontic assistant for 4 years now and enjoy every aspect of it especially meeting all our new patients and getting to make them apart of our ortho family! I married my best friend, Brent, in 2019 and we now have our handsome son, Beau, who was born in March 2020! We also have two fur babies, Coca and Copper, who also keep us very busy. When I’m not with patients, I enjoy spending time with my family, teaching Beau all the things, and getting Mexican food! My favorite place to be is in Destin, Florida on their beautiful beaches!!
