Meet Our Administrative Team

Beside every successful dentist is a great administrative team.

Charisse at Crabtree Dental
Treatment and Financial Coordinator

Charisse has over 25 years of experience in dental administration. She coordinates treatment plans for our patients and has been responsible for the insurance and billing functions of our practice for more than 15 years. She has attended many continuing education courses in her career, which has contributed to her expertise in dental insurance.

Charisse is originally from Rayne, Louisiana, and is now a Katy resident with three grown children. In her spare time she enjoys cooking, hiking, reading, and watching movies.

Stefanie at Crabtree Dental
Patient Relations Coordinator

Stefanie is a certified medical office specialist with an associate’s degree in computer science. She has over a decade of administrative and customer service experience and has been part of the Crabtree Dental team since 2010. Stefanie conducts patient checkouts, verifies insurance, and cheerfully answers your calls throughout the day.

She is originally from Corpus Christi and now calls Eagle Lake home. Stefanie loves spending time with her family, which typically means sports are involved, so it’s a good thing she’s an avid football and baseball fan!

Cassie at Crabtree Dental
Scheduling and Records Coordinator

Cassie has been serving in dental administration for over 20 years. With her experience comes a knowledge of dental insurance and dental procedures, which supports her efforts scheduling your appointments and managing your dental records. She will likely be the first face you see when you walk through the front door and the friendly voice you hear on the phone when you confirm your appointment.

Cassie is a native Houstonian who loves crocheting and all things Disney. She and her husband enjoy exploring the state of Texas and discovering the beautiful parks and unique roadside attractions it has to offer.

Lauren at Crabtree Dental
Assistant Manager

After being away for many years Lauren has returned to Crabtree Dental full time as assistant manager. She is responsible for a variety of functions including bookkeeping, human resources, compliance, marketing, and wellness.

Lauren is a registered dietitian and is happy to discuss nutrition topics at any time! She completed her undergraduate studies at Brigham Young University before completing her dietetic internship and master’s degree in public administration (MPA) at Virginia Commonwealth University.

She has lived in Utah, Virginia, and Oklahoma, and she’s very happy to be back in Texas! Lauren is married to an orthodontist, Dr. Aaron Laird, who practices in Katy. Together they enjoy cooking, skiing, and being outdoors with their two sons.

Talyn at Crabtree Dental
Assistant to the Practice Manager

Talyn is a transplant to Texas and has joined the Crabtree Dental team as the assistant to our practice manager. She received a bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University and spent the last several years working in the technology industry. Her organizational skills and knack for problem solving make her an asset on many projects, but her primary responsibilities include marketing, design, and optimizing office efficiency.

She grew up in Utah and Colorado and loved the idea of going on outdoor adventures, but no one in her family shared her aspirations. She finally met her match in Dr. Colby Crabtree and together they enjoy backpacking, paddle boarding, hiking, and camping. Talyn recently moved to the area from San Antonio and is thrilled to make Katy her home.
