Administrative Staff

Crystal – Scheduling Coordinator

Hi, my name is Crystal. I have been part of the amazing team at North Seattle Orthodontics since 2012. I love working with our awesome patients and referring dental offices. I started out as a chair side  dental assistant for a general dentist in 2006. When I am not at work, I spend with my husband, my teenage son and our dogs, Henry and Maggie. In our free time, we love to volunteer, travel, cook, fish and spend time outdoors.



Tess-Scheduling Coordinator

Hi, I’m Tess, and I have recently transferred into the world of orthodontics from the field of social work. It has been such an honor to join the North Seattle Orthodontics team where every day I learn more about the dental field, work with a caring and supportive team, and enjoy meeting our wonderful patients. I love to try new foods, garden in the spring and summer, and spend time with my family and golden retriever, Sprout. I look forward to meeting you and being a part of your journey to a beautiful smile. 

Amy – Financial  Coordinator

Hi, I'm Amy, and I've had the benefit of working for Dr. Lyons since 1999. As one of their treatment coordinators, I'm the one who will be helping you through the process of getting started on the road to a brand new smile. I've learned so much over the years, and I really enjoy using my experience to educate and build relationships with our patients. When I'm not at work, most of my time is spent with my husband and our two sons, going to the beach, zoo, reading, cooking, Legos and taking short road trips. I also try to travel back to my home state of Colorado a few times a year to visit my family.

My professional background is in medical administration where I worked for 13 years before making the transition to the dental field. I will be one of the first team members you meet when you schedule an initial exam, and it is my pleasure to help coordinate your future orthodontic care for a beautiful, healthy smile. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, attending music and sporting events, as well as volunteering in my son’s elementary school classroom.
