Meet the Team

Our orthodontic team is composed of truly remarkable people, each dedicated to their profession and providing the best care to our patients and their families.

In many ways, the team members are the foundation for the practice: they are capable, resourceful, skilled, and friendly. It makes me happy to hear them laughing with our patients, sharing stories, providing encouragement, and making sure everyone leaves with a smile!

Debbie

Chairside Assistant

I enjoy interacting with all our patients and following their progress as they achieve a great smile!

I’ve been part of LaHaye Orthodontics since 1974 and love that we are now creating smiles for second and third generations of the same families. I work closely with Dr. LaHaye as a chairside assistant. I also handle ordering and tracking of our orthodontic supplies and keep things organized so we can provide the best care to our patients.

Outside of work, I treasure family time, especially watching my grandchildren grow up, and enjoy watching the Hallmark Channel.

 

Kaitlin

Scheduling Coordinator

I really like building relationships with our patients! Each day, I hold excitement for past, present, and “almost ready”-to-start patients, as they are on their journey to the perfect smile!

I am new to LaHaye Orthodontics and love everything about it. My job involves many things: patient scheduling, treatment coordination, social media awareness, and treatment knowledge.

My husband and I are newlyweds as of September 2018, and share our lives with our mini Goldendoodle puppy, Shep. I love all things related to beauty and skincare and continuously further my education in both in my spare time. I also love being with family and friends, cooking, and very much enjoy fishing and hunting.

 

Linda

Lab Technician

I love seeing our patients’ before and after photos: it’s amazing, the difference orthodontic treatment can make in a person’s smile and their self-esteem!

I have been with LaHaye Orthodontics since 1976 and look forward to coming in every day. It’s rewarding to be on a team that strives for excellence! I work in our onsite lab, fabricating appliances and retainers. I also take photos, X-rays, and Invisalign® scans.

When I’m not working, I love being with my family, especially when we’re able to get away and camp. I’m married to my high-school sweetheart and am a grandmother to four.

 

Lindy

Treatment Coordinator

I love helping our patients feel comfortable in our practice and sharing in their excitement as they start their orthodontic treatment.

I have been on the LaHaye Orthodontics team since 1977 and am glad to spend my days with caring, well-trained, fun people! I meet with new patients and parents: introducing them to the office and presenting our different treatment options.

I love living in Cajun country: outdoor cook-outs with family and friends and cheering for LSU on Saturdays and the Saints on Sundays! I’m the mother of three handsome and successful men and the very proud grandmother of two beautiful grandchildren.

 

Maggie

Orthodontic Tech

I absolutely love working in the orthodontic field! It’s amazing to see patients come in for their first visit with not-so-perfect teeth and seeing the huge, perfect smiles when they’ve finished treatment. I love knowing I was part of their journey!

I started working at LaHaye Orthodontics in 2017 and love that Dr. LaHaye is an awesome orthodontist who takes very good care of his patients. I assist him with different procedures and also provide direct patient care.

I pretty much enjoy anything outdoors, especially bonfires, hunting, fishing, and camping. At home, I love to cook, do crafts, paint, and be with family and friends.

 

Mia

Assistant

I like working with patients and getting to know them personally. It’s incredible to see a person’s teeth transform from beginning to end of treatment and see their personality change, too!

I have been part of the LaHaye Orthodontics team since 2001 and appreciate that we all feel like family. In addition to working on patients with Invisalign® and braces, I also do imaging.

In my free time, I enjoy going to New Orleans, shopping, eating out, and traveling with my family.

 

Reyne

Financial Coordinator

I enjoy connecting with our patients on a personal level and seeing how each person changes as their new smile is created.

I have been with LaHaye Orthodontics since 2014 and enjoy working with a dedicated team and talented, caring doctor. I meet with patients and their families to review financials, including contracts.

Born and raised in Thibodaux, I spend my free time with husband Justin and two kids, Justin and Emma. I like being with loved ones, love to travel, and enjoy shopping, decorating, and arts and crafts.

 

Samantha

Orthodontic Tech

I am a huge people person, so I love working in orthodontics because I get to meet and spend time with so many amazing people! I like being part of their treatment experience and love seeing how each person becomes happier and more confident as they get a new smile!

I joined LaHaye Orthodontics in 2016. It’s rewarding to be part of a big family! I scan patients, prep Invisalign® and braces patients, and provide direct care, as well as assist Dr. LaHaye with procedures.

When I’m not in the office, I enjoy being with family and friends. I love anything outdoors, especially anything involving a boat, four-wheeler, and/or hunting. I love frogging, mudriding, and deer hunting! That’s how I was raised: barefoot and always outside, getting into something!
