Dara – Orthodontic Assistant, RDA, SOA

My name is Dara, and I was born and raised in Austin. I am a clinical assistant and a laboratory technician at Liberty Hill Orthodontics. I have worked with the O’Donnells since 1998. The things I enjoy the most are giving our patients the best care possible and being a part of a dedicated team.

Kelly – Treatment Coordinator, CDA, SOA

My name is Kelly and I was born in Florence. I am a treatment coordinator and assistant. I began dental assisting in 1990, and started working with the Drs. O’Donnell in 2006. During my many years in the dental field I have worked in every discipline, but I have found the most satisfaction in orthodontics. I love interacting with patients and their families, and always try to give the best care I possibly can. I consider myself very lucky to be working at an office where everyone works so well together and truly loves their job.

My husband Shane and I live in Cedar Park.
