Orthodontic Assistant and Digital Coordinator

Krystle resides in Woodstock. She has been an orthodontic assistant for over 7 years and grew up in Cherokee County. She is an amazing individual and brings a lot of value to the Kragor Orthodontic team. Her favorite part about her job is when a patient has their braces come off — she loves to see their reaction to their hard work and their new smile. She enjoys this part of her job best. She loves her family, her husband and son Corbin who plays baseball at Hobgood (he is also very good at hide and seek). When she is not cheering on her son, you can find her enjoying time with friends and family. She is a unique individual and is a 2x cancer survivor. She truly looks at the positive side of all things and lives her life to the fullest. Her favorite things to do outside of work is going to the beach, taking the boat out on the lake, spending time at the cabin, watching Corbin’s baseball games. She has been skydiving but has never flown on a commercial plane — we are working on that! We could not be more proud of her and are so grateful she is a part of our team. Say hello to Krystle next time you are in the office! You will always receive a warm hello back!


Orthodontic Assistant and TREATMENT Coordinator

Nikki lives in Woodstock with her husband Taylor and daughter Audrey. She has been an orthodontic assistant for almost 10 years. Nikki’s favorite part about her job is seeing the transformation of each patients’ smile throughout their orthodontic treatment. She has a contagious laugh that seems to connect with all patients of all ages. With her warm heart you know you will be in excellent hands. As a mom herself she understands the importance of feeling comfortable in the orthodontic chair. When she is not in the office she enjoys spending time with her family and friends. Her daughter is very bright and enjoys reading like her. She also is very good at gymnastics (did you know Nikki was a gymnast too?) Fun fact — Nikki is as fast of a reader if not faster than Dr. Ambre and can read a book or novel in a night or two. She likes all styles and genres! Her husband and her hope to travel more soon with Aubrey and show her new places and learn new things. Her father is a retired Firefighter and we think that is pretty awesome and love to learn about fire safety and firearm safety from her as well. We are blessed to have Nikki as a part of our team and be sure to ask her what she is reading now!

Brodie will attend college next year at Georgia Tech. Brayden plays football for Creekview High and just passed his drivers test (bless his little heart and hers). She loves to sport her green and blue on the weekends, but also likes to watch UGA football and wear the red and black. Her favorite thing about her job is to catch up with patients about their extracurricular activities like sports, band, clubs, art, etc. She loves getting to know her patients on a personal level. She ensures safety and care in the clinic and holds our team to the highest standards. She is gentle and kind with patients and everyone loves her positive spirits in the office. Outside of work and her sons’ sports, she enjoys spending time with her friends, family, and her Jack Russell named PJ (whom her husband says is her baby).


Orthodontic Assistant

Laura is a Woodstock resident. She began her career in the pediatric dental field as an assistant, and moved to the orthodontic side. She is an asset to our team in coordinating patient care with our pediatric and family dentists to help guide proper oral health. She also is excellent with younger patients and parents from this unique experience. Her son has braces currently and she can give you all of the inside tips and tricks! Outside of the office you can catch Laura spending time with Brad and her son Hayes! Hayes is a really good baseball player and hoping to get into golf more. We call Laura our “baseball mom” as she is always on the ball field. He also plays basketball for the Little River Eagles. With all of these sports, they stay pretty busy. Laura loves the outdoors, to dance (has some moves too), and hang with Hayes any chance she can get! They enjoy watching The Atlanta Braves, exploring Georgia, hiking, fishing, boating, kayaking, and pretty much anything fun or cool outside. We love having a “cool mom” like Laura in the office who just knows how to have fun and keep us laughing. Please say hi to Laura at your next visit!
